Weak case for closing fire station
After reading the report about the potential closure of Collingham Fire Station (Write To Save Fire Station, Says MP, Advertiser, August 7) I read the consultation document produced by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, Balancing The Budget 2014.

Given that they accept their proposals will have an impact on the service they provide, it is a remarkably superficial document.

For example, expenditure on consultancy is included under the heading “organisational fees” but no information as to what that represents is given. When you propose reducing front line services, what is the logic of spending any money on consultants?

I started to fill in the online questionnaire but gave up when it quickly became apparent that the lack of information in the document made it impossible to complete the tick-box form on an informed basis.

Inspiring message
Next month London’s Olympic Park will once again be in use when more than 400 competitors from 14 nations compete in the Invictus Games — a competition organised for wounded members of the Armed Forces.

Backed by Prince Harry, its aim is to use sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.

Inspire is perhaps the key word.

Among those taking part is Nathan Cumberland, of Fernwood, a former soldier who lost his left leg below the knee and right leg above the knee in an explosion while serving in Afghanistan in 2009.
