Why should poor park home residents miss out on £400 energy grant?

My partner, 85, and I, 75, live in a residential park home in Cornwall, and we have just learned from the owners of the site that we shall not receive Rishi Sunak’s £400 grant to cut energy bills (Report, 28 June). However, we understand that owners of second homes in the area will receive it. Needless to say, most park home residents do not live there because they’re wealthy, and they are often elderly. Surely there should be an outcry about this gross unfairness?

My membership of Guardian Soulmates (Letters, 24 June) led to the happiest period of my life when I met my wonderful late husband. We had a sublime existence for 11 years until he tragically died after a long illness. Without Soulmates we’d never have met, so I am eternally grateful. Please bring your dating service back and give others the chance to find love that may otherwise have never been possible.

Your “English English” readers will have been puzzled by your reference to “the danger of Holyrood’s presiding officer ruling the bill out with competence” (Report, 28 June). We “Scottish English” readers are sighing at our valuable term “outwith” failing to be recognised.

Card shops all over the north of East Anglia must be rushing to stock up on 66th birthday cards now they know that “one in three people in North Norfolk is now aged 65”, as it said in the print edition version of your article on the census (Density, age, gender splits: Snapshots from the data, 29 June).
