Thank you Mr Wild for your support us who press for the city to uncover the Sheffield Castle remains (Aug 8).
Several years will pass before we can even contemplate the prospect of action on the castle site, if indeed we see any. These years should not be wasted.
Next year sees the centenary of the Hunter Archaelogical Society, members of which were proactive in the interests of the castle remains when they were uncovered in the late 1920s.
Should not this be a spur for Sheffield Museums to mount an exhibition of castle artifacts?
We have two councillors on the board of Museums Sheffield, perhaps they could press this case?
As I said to the Lord Mayor recently, I’m thinking of having me ashes scattered on the existent remains as an added incentive in case nowt’s been done by the time the Grim Reaper’s felt me collar.

Cost of our MPs’ expense claims
SO our three Doncaster MPs, all Labour, all in opposition and who take no active part in decision-making on the running this country, claim the following expenses: Ed Milliband - £72,357, Rosie Winterton - £126,027 and Caroline Flint - £110,768.
Remember, they are in opposition because the public did not have the faith in them to run the country. Despite this fact they still pocket £311,152 between them. How many police officers, doctors, or care workers would this have kept in work? And what can the council tax payer expect from our MPs?
Ed Milliband will look into why market rents need to rise in Mexborough (simple because our labour councillors allowed rents to go unchecked for decades), Rosie Winterton will look into police cuts (under Labour, more police officers were lost than ever) and Caroline Flint will try to save a chicken factory.
