    Sub: Poor roads and drainage system

    Sir

    Please allow me to draw the attention of the Administration and Municipal Committee through your esteemed daily to the worn out roads and drainage system in Down Town Ave, in the outskirts of London city.

    The roads are in hapless condition with numerous potholes everywhere. The locality has migrant people and asylum seekers from all parts of the world. People throw plastic bag and glass all around. As a result the drains are blocked. During monsoon, water gets collected in huge volumes and disrupts the entire traffic. Normal life is thrown out of gear.

    The concerned authorities should take appropriate action to ensure instant operation of pumping systems and keep the road drainage under check. At the same time, the people living here too should cooperate to tackle the conditions.

    Yours truly

    Sir

    This is to draw your attention to the repairs which this house urgently needs.

    During the recent downpour, the roof of the house leaked badly. The water percolated through the ceiling and spoiled the wooden cupboards in the kitchen. The paint came off in many places. Some tiles in the balcony are also broken.

    I shall feel grateful if you look into these matters at the earliest and carry out the necessary repairs in the house.

    Yours faithfully

    Subject: Playground for children

    Dear Sir

    Through the pages of your esteemed newspaper I would like to gather the attention of the authorities to an issue the children of my locality facing. There is no playground for the children of Tuinplein Street, Cape Town.

    The population of this street is quite sizable and the children of all ages play on the crowded streets. It is extremely dangerous for children to play on the streets.

    It is essential that children get a playground with proper amenities for their physical and mental development.

    Many children stay at home because the streets are unsafe for them to play and the parents rightly do not send them to play on the streets. They feel lonely and get addicted to TV, smart phones, video games etc.

    Our children are in desperate need of a good playground with proper facilities. I hope the authorities would take note of this issue and do the needful in the near future.

    Yours faithfully

    Philip Jacobs
