Straight to the point.

The Prince of Wales pub in Cardiff city centre ripped off the locals on Saturday, June 3, the day of the speedway event.

A pint of Carling, normally pounds 1.89, was pounds 2.50! I asked to speak to the manager and he said: 'We're here to make money'. The Prince of Wales was the only pub in Cardiff to put the beer up on Saturday - shame on you! You have now lost 10 customers who spent a lot of money in that pub! They should take a leaf out of the pubs in Blackpool offering a locals card with normal prices.

THANK you to the kind and honest person who handed my daughter's purse in at Tesco, Western Avenue, Cardiff, on Friday, June 2.

She had left it in the ladies toilet with her cards, cash and drivers licence in it. I am sorry you didn't leave your name and address as I would have liked to thank you. You have restored my faith in human beings!

After a very traumatic year this could have been the final straw.

MICHAEL O'Neill seems to have missed the main point regarding John Prescott playing croquet in the grounds of Dorneywood.

Resentment of this was not so much a snobbish reaction to a working class icon like Prescott playing a game normally associated with the upper classes, but that he had the cheek to do so when he should already have resigned or been sacked for conducting an affair with his secretary on government properties, for which he has shown no contrition at all.

I WOULD like to express my disgust at the state of Cardiff's Cathays cemetery.

My brother and I went to place flowers on our late mother's grave and the grass was so overgrown we actually walked past the grave because it was all covered over with grass and weeds.

In parts it was at least three foot high. It is very upsetting for people to see their loved one's last resting place in such a state.
