Sir Peter, park plan is brilliant
I am usually one of the first to complain about the mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, for his hare-brained schemes that will cost us, the tax payers, money.
However, I would like to congratulate him on his latest project – that is building a walkway from the Victoria Park gates to the war memorial. It is a brilliant scheme.
Now, before you or your readers jump to any conclusion in that I am becoming a Sir Peter Soulsby fan, I would like to say a couple of things.
Firstly, this park is a venue for muggings and thefts.

The artist impression in your publication showed the walkway and car parking spaces, but alas no lighting. Would this not be an opportunity to install a few lights to improve public safety?
Secondly, as a tax payer, I am left wondering where Sir Peter has found the funds to action this project and also a new / revamped bus station?
Is there an election up-and-coming? Is this a bribe to get more of us onside, so he can join the old and the new city together, or even agree with the daft project of Jubilee Park, that no-one needs or wants?

It would appear that the mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, is totally unaware or not bothered about people's opinions when it comes to projects in Leicester.
Now he wants to revamp Victoria Park.
Looking at the drawing in the Mercury, it looks the same finish as New Walk's surface.
He would do well to check on the finish there – it looks a mess in a very short time.
Please, Mr Mayor, start listening to the people that didn't vote you in, but will very soon be able to vote you out.

I am a Leicester boy living in Far North Queensland, Australia.
I have followed the story of finding Richard III since being on a visit to the UK in September and you published the letter I wrote to you then.
I receive the story of Richard III from the Leicester Mercury via Kay West, of Great Glen.
The latest decision to buy St Martin's Place for a museum is a brilliant step in the right direction for Leicester and Leicestershire, linking Bosworth Battlefield to the city in no uncertain terms.
History is often interesting and we should take advantage of a good story from the past to help our towns.
Well done and good luck, Mr Mayor.

I hear that city mayor Sir Peter Soulsby wants the public to use the buses more often.
He wants to try using the Number 16 bus to the city's General Hospital.
I find it unreliable and an utter shambles – either two come together or none come at all.
We have complained numerous times via e-mail, telephone, to our MP, but it all seems to fall on deaf ears.
It's an absolute disgrace for a hospital service.
If Sir Peter wants the public to use the buses, they need to put on a reliable service.
