Re: Waitrose rumour

DQ's father informs that the move is a "done deal" as he was in conversation with a person doing the dealing and moving! So guess we need to know what will replace Waitrose and keep the town centre from going to a ghost town.. hmmmmmmm

Re: Proposed parking fee changes at council car parks.

The 30 minute grace and favour fee would only be useful to me if going quickly to a cashpoint, but I wouldn't stay to have something to eat, pop into another shop or supermarket like I do now. In the evening you will find more and more people will park on yellow lines as they are doing now, making i...

Walton Lodge Vet Sign - The Avenue

Am I the only one who has noticed that Walton Lodge Vets think its perfectly acceptable to stick a large sign on Bengeo School's wall on The Avenue indicating they are based at the Avenue shops??? Did the school give permission for this sign to be put up in half term week? and why are they allowed t...

Re: Choice of Train Operators

that rolling stock was first used fro 1976! They've just repainted it and changed the seating layout in that time! shocking to think thats about 40 years old now.. and still using the "Old" trains.. must be expensive for new parts !!!

Re: A laugh amongst the deluge

:D Priceless! Wish you could have done that for me as I tried to drive through a huge swathe of water past Chapmore End approaching the Tonwell roundabout and some D***Khead in white van thinks its funny to drive through deep water, on your side of the road, very fast causing so much tide I thought ...

sad to say I didn't vote last night. None of the literature I received from all parties in my home appealed to me at all.. So nil points as far as I am concerned. I don't consider it an indicator of things to come, but my apathy is worrying. I am normally good at voting to have my voice counted, but...

Re: 16 Jan morning rush hour delays caused by...

When I commuted from HN for 20 odd years there were two overwhelming factors for delays, one was trains were pulled to be used on WGC line to keep them appeased and two there were a lot of Railway Bigwigs who lived along the WGC line and to make sure the delays weren't as bad, they got all the train...
