Pen points.

I READ with horror C Tomkinson's comments about cracking a few heads with batons (November 26). Two wrongs have never made a right.

I recall the miners strike in the 80s when Thatcher sent her bullies in blue to crack a few heads when all the miners were doing was striking for more pay, exacting their right to go on the picket line and fight for their jobs.

If you were a police officer then, shame on you.

The basic fact is the government told a bare-faced lie, and what is C Tomkinson's answer? Conscription, brilliant. What is wrong with the British people? We used to stand and fight.

IN the centenary year of London Road Allotment Association we hope to replicate an authentic Edwardian garden and allotment at our site on Humber Road, which will be open to the public at our Centenary Open Day in August 2011.

We are interested in the past history of the site as we wish to make a resource centre on the garden to be available to local school and pre school children.

We would be delighted to hear from any readers who may have pictures, maps or stories about the site. We can be reached at the site on Saturday mornings before 12pm or by email on Andrew McDonald, Coventry.
