Department store Yorkshire Trading Company is moving into part of the Holdens of Newark furniture shop, bringing 30 jobs.
I have been a tenant of Newark and Sherwood Homes for many years and have always been fairly treated.
I was appalled, however, to read that Mr Alan Bexon is being made to give up his much-loved pet dog, despite undergoing treatment for cancer (Cancer Patient Is Told To Get Rid Of His Pet Dog, Advertiser, August 20). This dog will be a great source of comfort and help to Mr Bexon at this time.
I am undergoing treatment for cancer and my elderly cat is my best friend and a huge comfort to me so I can understand the distress this poor man must be going through.
I hope Newark and Sherwood Homes will reconsider its policy or at least offer him accommodation where he can live with his pet.
