WE in Caerphilly are closing our local hospital, we have lost our main post office and we are about to lose our police station ("Campaign is launched to save police station", Echo, November 12).

Caerphilly County Borough has one MP, Wayne David, one AM, one council leader, Lindsay Whittle, and they could not save the hospital nor the post office.

So what hope have they got to save the police station? So pull your finger out you three.

J Thomas Caerphilly ON Saturday, November 14, me and my mate called in to Wetherspoon's for a pint before catching the train to Pengam. After waiting 20 minutes to get served we were charged twice the usual price for a pint.

The bar was packed with football fans from Scotland so the profit made on the day must have been enormous.

I can only put the increase down to greed.

JL Hadley Norwood Close, Splott, Cardiff IT would be a lot better if the gas and electric company would send out notices saying when they could call to check meters.

As an elderly person I would appreciate the warning as repeatedly I have had to phone in to correct the amount used.

Sending a form to each person is surely better than customers having the worry of being overcharged.

MM Purcell Kings Road, Canton, Cardiff MY grandmother, Sarah Ann Thorne, lived in Thomas Street, Abertridwr, Glamorgan.

During World War II she was an air raid precaution warden in the village. Her ARP date of appointment was July 24, 1939; her identity card was issued by Glamorgan County Council on August 9, 1939.

I am searching for confirmation of her discharge from the service and dates when Abertridwr ARP service was stood down and disbanded. I have requested searches at Glamorgan Record Office for information but there is very little held in their archives.

I was wondering if your readers might have any further knowledge or know of any local records that may have more information.

E-mail me on Cheryl Williams Kettering, Northants ASSEMBLY Environment Minister Jane Davidson is obviously trying to appear as though she is worth her salary by coming up with the bright idea of getting shops to charge for carrier bags in two years' time.

What makes this minister think she will still be in the post, or even an AM, in two years' time? The larger supermarket chains and some shop chains are already using degradable bags, which rot away quite quickly.
