Sir: I had no problems saving money as a child (Letters, 22, 27, 29 April).

When I was seven years of age my father presented me with my own money box. It was a solid metal box securely fixed to the wall in the understairs cupboard and I proudly put my shilling into it, every week.

I was 10 before I discovered it was the gas meter.

Yours faithfully,


Ashley, Cheshire
