Sir, – I would like to point out that the article on the front page of this week’s Journal and Gazette contains a spelling mistake; ie Murray Drive is actually Moray Drive.

Furthermore regarding the flooding at Stockbridge Retail Park, this is something that Linlithgow businesses pointed out to West Lothian Council at the time of the McDonald Estates application to build.

In essence, that area was always a natural floodplain and should never have been built upon. –Yours etc.,

Sir, – We are urging people to get their walking boots on and sign up for a Three Peaks Challenge – to help fight meningitis on all fronts.

Whether you join as an individual or a group from a club or workplace you’re promised an unforgettable experience in the Meningitis Trust/Meningitis UK’s Three Peaks Challenge Team. The challenge, tackling the three peaks of Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis in just 36 hours, takes place between Friday, September 20, and Sunday, September 22.

And the best part of it is that we take care of all the transport and accommodation throughout the challenge, as well as supplying a fully qualified safety team.

Not only will you enjoy the experience of a lifetime but every person who signs up will be making a difference to the lives of families affected by meningitis.

The merged charity needs to raise over £10,000 every day to fund its lifesaving and life-changing services.

To take part in the sponsored challenge, either as an individual or as a team with friends, family or colleagues, or for more information, contact me on 01453 769025 or email beckin@meningi Registration is also open on our webpage at – Yours etc.,
