Design matters
Newark MP Robert Jenrick spoke for many of us when he says our built environment matters, and we do need to demand more (Make Progress, But Protect Heritage, Advertiser, May 5).

We should, indeed, praise the council’s rejection of the ugly and unnecessary proposed supermarket near Newark’s cattle market island.

Good design need not cost more. It should integrate economy, functionality and aesthetics. But good design needs a good customer. It’s too easy to blame the architect.

Compare, for instance, the industrial identikit Asda to the sympathetic Morrisons design.
— MARTIN SMITH, Southwell (Full address supplied).
 
End the hoax calls
SHORTCOMINGS at East Midlands Ambulance Service identified in a Care Quality Commission report received widespread coverage, not least in the Advertiser.

While the service was rated inadequate for safety, and requiring improvement overall, the report highlighted the fact that the care offered was good and that people were treated with dignity, kindness and respect.

The staff, particularly those on the frontline handling and responding to emergency calls, deserve the same in return

Unfortunately, as we report this week, that is not always the case.
