Key words to be underlined: editor, newspaper, journalist, report, good and bad points, Bayside Sports Centre, facilities, prices, opening hours, service and staff

To: Tom Allan, Editor
From: Janet Jones, Journalist
Subject: Bayside Sports Centre

The purpose of this report is to assess the positive and negative points of the Bayside Sports Centre.
There is a wide range of facilities available. In addition, the equipment is all new and modern. However, there are not enough exercise machines, the customers have to wait a long time.
Prices and Opening Hours
The sports centre is open seven days a week from 10 am to 10 pm, which is very convenient. However the prices are not very competitive and there are no special offers available.
Staff and service
All the instructors at the gym are well trained. What is more, there are sufficient staff to meet the customers’ needs. On the other hand, the staff are not very friendly. In addition, they are rather slow to help when asked.
My overall impression is that there is much room for improvement. All in all, I would not recommend the Bayside Sports Centre unless they lower their prices and improve their service.

The work ambulance is often written backwards so that drivers can read it in their rear view mirrors.
Ambulances are usually brightly coloured so that they can easily be seen.

The article must be about the people working for the St. John Ambulance Brigade.
