LETTER:Paean to dirges

From Mr Robert Cooper

LETTER : Still on a high from Oasis Oasis are best since Beatles

OK. I MAY only be 16 years old, but we are all entitled to our own opinions. Unfortunately, I feel that Nicholas Barber expressed his too strongly regarding the record-breaking Oasis gigs at Earl's Court ("Oasis dry up before the end", Real Life, 12 November). I appreciate that I was only one of 40,000 people lucky enough to be there and enjoy such an amazing experience, but I think that what I am about to say will speak for the majority of Indy Kids who were there.

John, Paul, George, Ringo and Nick

So the Beatles are recording again. So we recall how fab the four were. So we worry a bit about the remaining three. So what's to live up to? They weren't so great first time round. By Nick Coleman

Made the grade

Community action has rescued an important Blackheath building and put it back into family use. The Hollies, a Victorian villa in Lee Terrace built by George Ledwell Taylor, was bought by the Blackheath Preservation Trust last year. Recent ugly extensions were knocked down, leaving an architecturally authentic four-bedroom, three-receptions house - under offer - and a two-bedroom coach house next door. A new Grade II listing should prevent it falling into unsympathetic hands.

Letter: Yeah and no, Jaci

Sir: Jaci Stephen ('Help] They love you, yeah, yeah, yeah, but I don't', 15 September) does not know what she's talking about. There may be so-called 'has-beens' watching the Beatles reunion, but there will be others watching it as well; I will, for sure.

Three Peaks Race: Merseybeat rowing stroke peaks at right time: Rob Howard reports how Gareth Owen's oarsmen beat becalmed seas to win the Three Peaks Race yesterday

AT 7.31am yesterday the 27ft trimaran, Burtonwood Merseybeat, glided across the calm waters of Loch Linnhe to moor at Fort William beneath the cloud-shrouded ramparts of Ben Nevis. Two runners jumped ashore to race 17 miles to the 4,406ft summit and back again.
