SIR, - St Albans is a lovely place in which to live. We are implored to economise so why does the office of the Nationwide Building Society - admittedly up a few steps - need seven lights for access? The office closes at 5pm. Even though closed, these lights burn and are on as I write this at 6pm on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Why, when we are urged to reduce packaging, are we unable to buy loose mushrooms? Apart from our excellent market, mushrooms purchased in the shops are now only available in a certain quantity, packaged in plastic.

Finally a different problem. The 724 Green Line bus has a new route. It stops near the Peahen Hotel. Inevitably this bus is often late. The pavement is narrow, there is nowhere to sit, hardly room to stand and no cover in the rain. A bus ran on Saturday, May 10. It was half-an-hour late and had the heating on.

I have noticed that airing comments like the above in your paper can result in adjustments.

MRS J.M. BROWN,

Hatfield Road, St Albans.
