OUR food recycling caddy went missing from the kerb side. On phoning Serco to ask for a replacement I was informed that there is a charge for a new caddy. I am sorry, but from now on our food waste will go into the normal bin. I have always been a great believer in recycling; however, as the council introduced …

UK must remain in the EU to survive

I feel compelled to respond to last week’s lengthy letter from the Rev Stuart Piper (A Cheap And Silly Pop At Ukip By MP, Letters and Opinion, Kentish Gazette, March 5). Ukip and its adherents are frightening because of their “rear-view-mirror” view of the world which, I fear, holds dreadful implications for this country and its future generations if they …
