SIR, - The closure of Ridgeview hostel in London Colney will be a great loss to a lot of old residents and any homeless people in the future. I found Ridgeview to be the only place where I, a middle-aged woman and homeless, could find a safe place. Nowhere else in Herts was able to offer me refuge when I needed it. My hope is that Herts will replace Ridgeview with a place that has the same policies.

I would like to thank all the staff for their help and support they gave in the six years I took refuge there. A job well done.

HEATHER MCKENZIE,

Dellfield, St Albans.
