WE WROTE: Sadness has greeted the end of the mail sorting operation
at the Royal Mail office on Cannon Park in Middlesbrough. YOU SAID:
We''ll soon be sending letters by horse or post-chaise. Or
perhaps carrier pigeon. Why could the Victorians do so much and we can
do nothing? tripehound Why is a local sorting office so important if
greater efficiencies can be made by having better staffed and better
equipped centralised functions? It''s about time those working
in the public sector understood that most important are the people they
serve and not those who work in the service. Without the customer the
business is nothing - this is well understood by the private sector but
sadly is a view not understood by the public sector timetogetreal So you
think it makes sense that a letter posted that is from one street in
Middlesbrough to the next street should go all the way to Gateshead and
back to be sorted? BHN6094 WE WROTE: Whatever happened to the Redcar
whale bone? In May 2011, a 45ft-long male sperm whale, above, became a
temporary tourist attraction after it beached at Redcar.
YOU SAID: It's a pity the council didn''t bury the
vertical pier with it.
scott The Redcar whalebone, I've never heard of a more stupid
idea since the Helter Skelter Tower. What will it signify? Whitby has a
whalebone to show its history and links to whaling. Redcar's would
signify something that died on the beach.
