Thank you for highlighting attempts by the Restore Trust to fight a “culture war” with the National Trust (Insurgents to bring war on ‘wokeness’ to National Trust AGM, 1 October). Your piece prompted us to seek out Restore Trust’s candidates and to vote for alternatives.

• Guardian readers, inspired by Will Renwick’s run across Welsh mountains (1 October), might be interested in following the Cambrian Way. This route, from Cardiff to Conwy, takes in all the best high ground and has a total ascent of more than 70,000 feet.
• Re letters about when university became uni (30 September), as the first person in my family to go to university, my dad was so proud of me when I got a place at Hull. He bought me a Parker pen and had it engraved “Uni 1976”. This wasn’t because anyone we knew ever said uni, it was just because having fewer letters made it cheaper. Yorkshire pride has a cost.
• On wearing the same jeans that we wore at 21 (Letters, 1 October), a quick poll of friends (all in our 70s) revealed that we all had the same method to do up hipster flares: flat on the floor, with a metal coat hanger hooked into the zip.
• Jessica Murray describes Coronation Street as “Britain’s longest-running soap opera” (From Corrie to car ads, carbon literacy training pushes climate to the fore, 2 October). Has she never heard of The Archers?
