Help with bills | Bring back Guardian Soulmates | Outwith understanding | 65-year-olds in Norfolk

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.
