Sadly missed
It was with much sadness that I read of the death of Rodney Cousins (Tributes To Scout Leader And Historian, Advertiser, October 8).

I have known Rodney since childhood — we both grew up as Farndon boys.

I always thought him to be a genuine person and his lifelong involvement in the Scouting movement only increased my admiration for his achievements.

‘He will be sadly missed,’ is an epithet that slips easily off the tongue, but in this case it rings true. Not seeing him lead the St George’s Day parade will remind me how transient our own mortality is.

Chance meeting
AREALISTIC opportunity presents itself to finally provide pupils at Newark Orchard School with the learning environment they deserve. The school, which caters for pupils with special needs, is on two main sites — Appletongate and London Road.

The Advertiser has led the way in highlighting the dilapidated state of the outdated buildings on both sites that are no longer fit for purpose and is backing a campaign by parents to provide pupils with the school they should have.

No youngsters should go to a school where roofs leak and buckets are used to catch rainwater that drips through.

Additional problems at the Orchard include doors not being wide enough for wheelchairs and standing frames to fit through.
