York is a good place to live

First published in Letters by

NOW that we have arrived in 2014, it is nice to recall the good things that happened to us, thanks to the many people who are kind to old folk.

In 2013, I nominated for the One-Stop Shop in Walmgate for the York Community Pride awards. Such a lovely bunch of people work there. They were runners-up.

The other entry was our ‘Angels’, the wonderful nurses from Clementhorpe. And last but not forgotten is Morrison’s supermarket on Foss Islands Road. The store gives all folks a lot of help and the café is very good value.

So let’s say to all staff of the above, and not forgetting The Press for providing us with news of York, Happy New Year to everybody. York is a very good place to live.

We moved about a bit with my work. 5 different addresses across the West Midlands and down to Reading. I worked across the whole of this Island, Isles of White and Man over the years and came back here to retire, finishing work with Donnelley the printers for 13 years.
You can't find better folk than us Yorkies either!

York is indeed a great place to live ... if you are fortunate enough to be in work; comfortably retired, and were lucky enough to have acquired property before prices went stratospheric.
Mind you: I suppose that pretty much true everywhere. Even Reading!

Yes if you don't count poor traffic management and all traffic related issues.
Oh, and the vandalism & drunks.
