Left too long
From an architectural point of view the design of the Tra-velodge proposed for the site of Newark’s former Robin Hood Hotel is, in my opinion, a monstrosity, and I cannot believe 66 bedrooms can be accommodated on such a small site.

I do believe, however, that the three remaining townhouses are beyond economic restoration.

Given that the hotel itself closed some 18 years ago, why did neither Newark and Sherwood District Council or Nottinghamshire Building Pre-servation Trust do something then?

That would have made more sense than allowing the remains to deteriorate more and more over the passing years.

Calls for A1 action
THE latest terrible accident on the A1 at Newark has brought into sharp focus the need for action to help prevent further tragedy. Mr Ian Newell, of Grantham, died in a six-vehicle crash on Thursday and our thoughts are with his family at this awful time.

An eyewitness, Mrs Rebecca Pitcher, said the crash was the most horrific thing she had ever seen and she would not drive on the A1 again.

Although the cause of the crash is being investigated, it has prompted calls for major changes to the A1/A46 junction and slip-roads.

Since the incident almost 2,400 people have signed an online petition, set up by Amiee Fletcher, calling for Highways England to improve safety and ease congestion.
