Answers please
With regard to the headline, Time To Tackle Friday Gridlock (Advertiser, September 25) I fully agree with that statement.

How best to do it appears to be the question.

We have to understand that Newark is quite rightly proud of being an historic town, with its medieval Market Place, that features buildings of all periods and types.

With that, of course, comes narrow streets.

Inspired by games
MUCH is made of high profile sports stars, actors and other celebrities being held up as role models and in many cases, although not all, that status is justified.

But inspiration is perhaps more obviously found among those whose spirit and strength of character carries them through times of incredible adversity.

The 400-plus competitors in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games undoubtedly fall into that category.

The games captured the public’s imagination and have helped bring about a greater understanding of the sacrifices made by those who put their lives on the line for their country.
