THE Hunts Post tells us that Hinchingbrooke Hospital is some £20million in debt and will have to close wards and services. We also learn that our council will spend some £20million on a new office block.

Faced with this sort of problem, a sensible person would say why not move the council offices into the disused blocks at the hospital. That way, we all save money and the hospital can charge a decent rent. Isn't it called joined-up thinking, and isn't it our money?

On another topic, it was nice of someone to apologise for the cock-up in St Neots High Street, but did we really need all that expensive work? While the lights were out of action, we all managed very well, even on market days, to cross the road safely. Motorists politely stopped, and not once did we have any problems or see anyone acting aggressively.
