Problems persist
On a recent visit to my property in Collingham, I noticed the new carpark at the railway station on Station Road (Some Stay On The Verge Rather Than Pay To Park, Advertiser, September 25).

I was under the impression this carpark, built in open countryside and outside the village envelope, was to stop cars parking on the road.

What a total farce. I counted some 17 vehicles on the road and only five on the carpark.

Does this mean that both the county highways department and the parish council, which jointly pushed for the carpark in the interests of road safety ,are not really fit for purpose?

Tourism vision
THE vision for Newark to become a major tourism destination, based around the national Civil War Centre, is starting to take shape. Significant milestones are being achieved in the conversion of the Old Magnus Buildings on Appletongate.

This week five huge oak beams were hoisted into the building to replace centuries-old rotten timbers in the roof of the Tudor Hall.

This exciting project is on course for its scheduled opening next year.

Newark and Sherwood District Council should be congratulated for seeing the potential in the area’s Civil War history.
