I AGREE with all that was said in your, “Comment” of February 9, regarding the absence of care for sufferers from mental illness.
I would like to ask if any of your readers can advise on a do-it-yourself treatment for mental depression, the NHS seem to have given up on me.
Thanks for the support
WE ARE the Huddersfield Support Group for The West Yorkshire Forget-Me-Not Trust.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us in 2007. On January 17, this year we presented the central office with a cheque for £12,500 which we raised during the year from our events and the many kind donations which we received.
We also send our thanks to our team of extra volunteers who we call on for their help at many of our events – they never let us down.
We send all our good wishes to you all and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Do you remember pobs?
DOES anyone remember “pobs”? I’ve just read an old story recently which mentioned “pobs”. When I was poorly as a little girl my mother used to make them, it was pieces of bread with sugar on, put in a dish with warm milk poured over, you ate it with a spoon. Just curious if anyone remembers them, it’ll be older people like me no doubt!

Fluoride row is back
THE subject of adding fluoride to water supplies is about to raise its ugly head again. What is it about the powers that be, which makes them bang on about this matter every few years?
There were massive objections last time. It was also said, that a teaspoonful of fluoride could kill a grown man. Whether this be true or false, why on earth do we need this rubbish added to the water we drink? This is nothing short of mass medication without consent. The reason is given that it will protect children’s teeth. If that be the case let fluoride tablets be freely available for parents to give to their children, if they so wish.
However, adults with allergies do not want fluoride adding to their problems, and I’m sure many more complaints will surface, if all this goes ahead.
AM I right in thinking that it is the Department of Education (which Barry Sheerman is the Minister) responsible for the ruling that children are not allowed to go on family holidays in term time?
Surely MPs have enough holidays in a year without having to encroach into their working days?
It seems to give the message to his electorate “Do as I say - not as I do”.
Mrs N Clarke
THE ill-founded and malicious attacks on Barry Sheerman made in the Sunday Telegraph and repeated elsewhere are a disgraceful slander on a public servant of high integrity.
No MP of any party works harder in Parliament and in his constituency than the Member for Huddersfield.
