New Years Eve - What to do?

Years ago we used to go to a golf club do. They left it to the last minute (August) to arrange entertainment, so we got the worst.

You go to your local pub get charged at the door and the place is full of people you don't see for 364 days of the year.

Taxis cost a mortgage.

So we are staying in. Everything under control.

Happy New Year !

So ends 2011

As far as Chester Rd is concerned (it's where I live)

1. Increased traffic levels to trunk road levels on occasions.
2. Token traffic policing.
3. Our rat run still hammers through every work day morning
as it has when I pointed this out to Penyffordd Cllrs five years ago

Presuming this stays as it is up to local elections in May.

Last election on a voting of 2000 approx the three county council contenders
were I seem to remember within 10 votes of one another.

Presuming the main three groups put forward a contender

What if I stand as a county councillor ? How does that alter the numbers?

Happy 2012 councillors !


ps. It must be said that both Labour and the Independents have betrayed Chester Rd and other main roads within the village used instead of the bypass.

Perhaps someone else will stand, it would make things even more interesting.

Or perhaps its all off if we get the Higher Kinnerton speed bumps treatment?

Penyffordd meanders into the new year


One of these in the garden this afternoon. I've lived here nearly 30 years and never seen one in the garden. I released one from a trap last year which is apparently against the law. You have to watch what your doing as they bite.
Traps should be made illegal they're barbaric.

I'm familiar with their lifestyles. Lots of other wild life such as robins and blackbirds are nasty when you get down to how they live.

If you want a little free entertainment buy a rubber robin and nail it to the top of a post in the garden with a view from the house. Then watch what happens when the local robin sees it. He'll knock five buckets of guano out of it.

On the allotment front it's tidy up time. Strawberry runners to be potted up.
I have a large box of vegetable seeds that are a few years old. I have a friend who planted out seeds that were ten years old. Many  were successful.

I have ten old varieties of lettuce, we shall see.

Speed Cushions

Higher Kinnerton which has a similar issue (speeding /short cut traffic) but smaller volumes than Chester Rd is to have speed cushions along its main road. (presuming not too many objections)
Last week Chambers Lane, Mynydd Isa was advertised for similar.

Is Chester Rd,  Penyffordd to get road cushions?

They have the data, they know what's happening.

Are we to carry on being a major support for local trunk roads?

Shopping List from PACA

Mr Sian Le Tissier presented Penyffordd Community Council with a wish list of facilities for local organisations.

1. Premises modification for Scouts / Cubs / Beavers and possibly Brownies.
2. A youth pitch for Penyffordd Junior Football Team. (one presumes a pitch without sheep grazing)
3. Penyffordd Senior Football Club would like some assistance for a wet room.
4. A skate park ( not near my house please)
5. BMX outdoor adventure area ( again not near my house please)

Mr Le Tissier's letter included realistic costings.

Copies of letter were sent to Flintshire Chief Planning officer and Chief Leisure Services Officer.

Penyffordd Community Council decided to support the above aspirations.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Penyffordd District comment.

Sian Le Tissier's efforts are a breath of fresh air, he is to be congratulated over his efforts.

Penyffordd has many little play areas dotted around. How often are these areas used? I think very little.

Would it not have been better to have one large area and buildings that all the sports teams could use? From a social point of view people would mix more readily in one central area.
Why do I ( and any one else) have to drive to Padeswood to watch Penyffordd Senior's football?

224 Housing plus points

Cllrs David Williams and Cindy Hinds' meetings with Flintshire Planning has borne the following developments some of which are ongoing.

1. Large play equipment on the Millstone Playing Field.
2. Section 106 gain for Penyffordd and district would be in the region of £150,000.

How Inflation affects Penyffordd

This is particularly good. A comment in The Telegraph

In_totidem_verbis

Inflation is heavily influenced by personal spending patterns. For example, if you are not one of those people who has to have the latest electrical gadget in your home, then you can remove this factor from your calculation. Therefore, it does not matter to you if such goods are not rising in line with inflation or, for that matter, actually becoming cheaper.

What really matters are the necessities in life, a roof over your head, food on the table, keeping warm and healthy, and the cost of travel to and from work. When you look at these essential factors in life, it is clear that some, if not all, are subject to large price rises and have been for some time.

Current methods of calculating inflation, particularly the ludicrous CPI unsurprisingly relied upon by this inept Government to suppress demands for wage increases, pay no heed to the question of priorities, essentially relying on a calculation that lumps together the cost of luxuries and necessities.

Finally, anyone using CPI as a measure of inflation is either an idiot or a politician, admittedly difficult to distinguish because the two are synonymous.

Penyffordd Today

Penyffordd Community Councillors have no moral compass

On Wednesday 26th October a meeting was held to hand out £3200 to community groups in Penyffordd. Cllrs Tom Jones and Colin Bithell wished it to be recorded that they wished Penyffordd Wine Society which has been going for nigh on 30 years to be excluded, no reason offered.

Did any councillor or Chairman David Williams ask why? Not a peep.
I am particularly disappointed in Cllrs Linda Vidamour and Cindy Hinds remaining silent.

This is a small sample of what is going on in the back ground whilst public sector workers strike. They really don't know what day it is. Who pays public service wages and  pensions? The Private Sector.

What happens when the Private Sector can no longer pay?

Rescue founder Sheila Stewart blames ever-increasing economic pressures on families for the situation, which she claims is the most serious the 30-year-old centre has ever seen.

She said: “The position at the moment is just unbelievable. We are absolutely full to bursting and cannot possibly take any more animals in.

“In recent years, I have taken one or two calls a week from pet owners who are being evicted from their homes or having to move out due to money problems.

Now I’m taking about three calls every single day. I think the impact of the economy is having a worse effect than ever before.

So many jobs are being lost and businesses closing. People are hanging onto their pets for as long as possible but just can't cope with the cost any more.”

While Carl's at it can the price of 20 mph compulsory zones be reduced and implemented.

This could be applied to Chester Rd to show WAG really didn't want it to return to trunk road status after the opening of A55 Warren Bank.

Penyffordd's Child Guardian in The Flintshire Chronicle

Colin Bithell of Penyffordd Community Council had been calling for an investigation into the site for 10 years.

“I’m not satisfied with the outcome of it,” he said. “We also wanted assurances the health of young people in the village would be monitored for the next 10 years to see if there’s an increase in cancers. There are two primary schools practically underneath the plant.”

Link Flintshire Chronicle

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

postscript: Colin has done his level best to ignore speeding through the middle of the village. When our youth get their bikes and scooters out in the summer Chester Rd is an accident waiting to happen.

He resorted to asking North Wales Police and Flintshire County Council to do something about me.

CBM Chris Pullen said I had a democratic right to protest over his and Penyffordd Communty Council's lack of action.
I presume legal eagle for Flintshire County Council  Barry Davies said similar.

Penyffordd Councillors stick the boot in to Penyffordd Wine Circle

It would be fair to say that Penyffordd Wine Circle has diminished numbers for various reasons not related to the current financial climate. Each year Penyffordd Councillors dole our our money (rates) to communities and groups through out the village and further. This year they have in their infinite wisdom decided to give Penyffordd Wine Circle the grand some of £25. Whilst everyone else receives over a £100 pounds.

Cllrs Colin Bithell and Tom Jones had it minuted that they wish the Penyffordd Wine Circle to receive no further grants.

You would wonder why Penyffordd Wine Circle deserve such treatment. What have they done to Penyffordd Cllrs. Nothing.

Thank you Gosafe.

Excepting those that had not been warned by other drivers.

There are some arrogant arses want nailing, they need a lesson or three.

There are of course Penyffordd councillors who are for the morning rat run being allowed to speed. You think me unfair. Why then does it continue after 5 years.

Accountability and Transparency move steps closer in Penyffordd

Is Cllr Tom Jones retiring you might ask? you might be disappointed....

Tomorrow night on the agenda of Penyffordd Community Council is an item to discuss Penyffordd residents having more of a say in monthly meetings. Usually us the great unwashed are allowed to speak once a year.

You can of course write to the council. The normal Tom Jones sort of reply will be "contents noted", end of story.

I mention councillors who hide their email addresses from residents as an example

Also apparently Penyffordd Council agendas and meeting minutes are to go online

A bit of a move away from the Cllr Tom Jones method of ruling us wasters. Which is to treat us all like mushrooms.

Hanson Cement works has not caused ill health - report

I've lived in the village for nearly 30 years. Cement dust emissions have fallen drastically from a car windscreen unable to be seen through due to sun dried cement emissions to no dust emissions on the car wind screen at all.

Penyffordd Cllrs will walk a mile to discuss Hanson Cement yet continue to ignore speeding short cut traffic through the middle of the village to A55 Warren Bank and Airbus. They hammer through the village each day.

I'm quite prepared to put up an embarrassing poster for the next 10 years over cllr foot dragging.

Speeding traffic kills children a lot faster than fairy dust councillors!

Village environment for you starts with daffodil bulbs and ends with their planting.

Penyffordd Allotments

Penyffordd has allotments next to The Millstone. I think Cllr Cindy Hinds has organised these.  Cllr David Williams has recently sent a flyer around the village to see if there was further interest. The response has been robust.
Gladstone Estate are willing to provide land near Penymynydd church. Even the planning officer is quite enthusiastic.

There will be enough  land for 50 plots. Test ploughing has been mentioned. The area comes with a ready made car park which cannot be said for The Millstone plots.

It is hoped the allotments take off and become well established.

There is good advice here on allotments.

I have an allotment in my back yard. I have a poly tunnel, raised beds, compost bins and a greenhouse made of patio doors. I'm not too keen on growing cabbages but next year we are having a salad garden outside the kitchen.

My main interest is fruit. I have various plants and trees including apple, pear, grapes, a quince tree, plums, damsons, rasberries, strawberries, tomatoes , cucumbers, blueberries, peppers, figs, peach and cherries. Many are in their early stages.

I intend to build a low energy heated seed bed this coming year to start tomatoes etc off early.

Here's a chap who sells fruit tree bits. You choose a rootstock and graft scions to produce cheap fruit trees. Anyone wanting to swap scions please get in touch.

Time for North Wales Police Authority to go

in The Daily Post

"Police Minister Nick Herbert made clear PCCs “will not be expected to run the police”, but will be the voice of the people, holding forces to account, and allocating budgets worth tens of millions of pounds."

Our MP Mark Tami supports the current system where police management are unaccountable to the people they serve. Where NWPA have no real power and are of little practical use.

Our local Penyffordd councillors support NWP in their non traffic policing in Chester Rd. It costs votes you see. It upsets the speeders.

It is fair to say NWP have been pathetic in their action over speeders on Chester Rd. Not interested , nothing to do with us.

It would also be fair to say that speeders are not just a Penyffordd problem. A quick scan of the papers this last week reveals, a young man killed in Anglesey, a pensioner killed on the outskirts of Wrexham, a car run into a house in Rhyl, a car on its roof in Wrexham. It just goes on and on. Our politicians do not care, from community councillor to MP.

Certain political groups are saying the police should not become politicised. If they did their jobs properly on law and order we wouldn't be in the state we are today. Armed burglary, stabbings, diesel pinching, metal pinching  not a policeman in sight. All safely tucked up in bed, doing paper work or on a diversity or gay awareness course......

SPEED limits in Flintshire are set to be reviewed.

Flintshire’s Council’s executive committee approved plans to review limits on A and B roads at a meeting yesterday.

Executive member for environment Cllr Tony Sharps said: “We have a tremendous amount of complaints about speeding traffic in towns and rural areas."

“It gives me great pleasure to move this report so we can proceed and satisfy the needs of local people and councillors.”

Speed limits on A and B roads near schools would be included in the review.

So its just not me. The Welsh Assembly Government could help by streamlining requirements to change speed limits. They could also give Flintshire County Council extra funds.

http://penyffordd-district.blogspot.com/2011/11/cindy-and-independents-gang-up-on-david.html

Nigel has Internet the above comment just about proves it.
( As far as I am concerned Nigel has been under orders from Penyffordd Cllrs or Cllr Tom Jones individually not to reveal to me that he has an internet connection ) This situation has been ongoing for the last 5 years.

If I wish to send a communication to Penyffordd Community Council I have to print it out, put in an envelope, attach a stamp and an address, walk to the post office which is over the road or walk to Nigel's house which is 5 minutes away.

Or

I could send him an email which takes seconds.

But the latter is not available as Penyffordd Community Council have decided that residents don't deserve email communication. PCC have decided that council knowledge is dangerous and should be kept low profile as much as possible.

Council minutes are kept hidden in a draw in the post office. That's if someone hasn't borrowed them.

Time to change Penyffordd councillors? Time for an email address for the clerk and email addresses for all those councillors who hide their email addresses.

It should be pointed out that county councillors David Williams and Cindy Hinds have email addresses. David doesn't usually answer my emails.

Community Cllr Linda Vidamour displays an email address. I'm disappointed with Linda for not pushing for the community council to have an official email address.
Part of the downside of being in Cllr Tom Jones' Independent ( keep residents in the dark)  Party.

Time for change councillors whether you like it or not.
Time to become digital.
Time for council minutes to be online.

Driving in bad conditions

Last Friday tea time we had a 20 minute monsoon with an extreme amount of water in a short time. Normal drains are unable to deal with these situations. Chester Rd with its inadequate drains acts as a river with a lot of it diverted down to the farm opposite us. There was a stretch of water all the way across the road outside the post office. Some drivers slowed right down others ploughed straight through.

Lisa was out in this deluge coming from Llanfynydd. It was not a good experience.

I hate driving on roads in poor visibility. There are some who drive at speeds that are dangerous. There are others who tail gate you because you will not drive at speeds acceptable to them.

Then we get accidents like the carnage caused last Friday. Are they really accidents? Many drivers drive at distances where they are unable to stop if there is trouble in front of them. They are not accidents.

Our government (small g) fail yet again allowing lassez faire driving with no proper enforcement or punishment for the idiots who should not have licenses.

Flintshire County Council allow accidents to happen again and again in the same spots. Outside Dobshill garage is one of them.

Poor national and local government.

Penyffordd Bonfire 2011


Volunteers have worked hard today. Looks a little big? A bit of a song and dance the year before last when sparks landed on someone's head.

I think the fire brigade have a hose off a fire hydrant just in case it gets out of hand.

Good news is every thing went well. I often wonder how catholics feel about bonfire night.

Noise continued

Just found this. What on a Friday night? Why aren't you out in Wrexham you might ask? Been there, done that, got the tee shirt. ( I'm having a cheap beer, one that's not from a pub)

The Welsh Assembly Government don't want to know about noise, one reason for their dissolution. Most governments are similar. Only the China and Hong Kong have active programs.

The Telegraph have the story.

Noise - Why do people put up with it?

Here is the noise survey for the proposed White Lion. Why people will pay up to £400,000 to live in dwellings where traffic noise can be heard is beyond me.
All the cheaper houses are nearest the main road would you believe.

ps All the houses will be built with radon protection built into the floor.

Cindy and The Independents gang up on David


Here is minute 118 of Penyffordd Community Council meeting. Cllr David Williams steps out of line with an email. I'm with David on this housing subject. His comments about lack of affordable housing spot on. We need more David's on the council. Other councillors are far too soft.


Scribe Nigel the Clerk to the Council uses the word "unfortunately" twice in this minute. Once when referring to Cindy and another time referring to David. Why is the word unfortunate used? Is it unfortunate to Penyffordd Community Council, unfortunate the Independent led majority of cllrs.  Should the word "unfortunately" be in the minutes at all.


Nigel has put the following comment below. " To my good friend Colin (The Blog) from Nigel (The Scribe of Penyffordd Community Council).
You appear to criticise my use of the word "unfortunately", twice, in minute number 118. You should realise that I am quoting verbatum what the particular Councillor said. It is not my style to repeat words, perhaps you could ammend your 'unfortunate' error,(this is a pun) in your post. Re minute 118. Goodnight."






I feel the council needs a more balanced set of councillors. The Independent group are too weak for Penyffordd and hold too much of a majority.
Time to get rid of the Tom Jones electoral sheet of 8. If they had to stand as individual cllrs and stand all the costs and work individually to be elected most of them would not be councillors today


Many thanks to scribe Nigel for supplying the minutes



118.    PEN-Y-FFORDD DEVELOPMENTS

Cllr Mrs C Hinds referred to an email that had come to her attention, a copy of which she had circulated to members of the Council.

The email was from the Chairman, Cllr D Williams to Mr John Keryakoplis, with copies to various other persons in the village, some of which are involved with local organizations.

The email referred that the new plans for the Butchers Estate are due to go out for consultation shortly.  The Chairman had a viewing of these, and to be blunt he considered them to be a disgrace, and that in his opinion the Planning Officer is not doing his job as he should be.

There is no increase in the amount of land they are prepared to provide for recreation.

Unfortunately Cindy has indicated that she is happy with the new proposal, as she is scared that we may lose out on what they are offering.

Cllr Williams expressed his opinion insomuch that as far as he is concerned they are only offering what we should have had fifteen years ago and we should not allow these developers and landowners to walk over us again.

One other matter to be aware of is that the Community Council is to consider the application for the White Lion site.  This is for 85 houses that include about eight starter homes.  The other 77 are to be detached houses with a starting price of £250,000 going upwards to about £400,000.

Cllr Williams again considered this to be disgusting as the development should have a mix of houses that people in the village can afford.  To have the cheapest home costing £250,000 is obscene, but unfortunately Cllr Williams seems to be the only one on the Council who thinks this.  Unless there is audience at the meeting on Wednesday therefore I am in no doubt the plans will be approved by the Community Council.

Cllr Mrs C Hinds considered the contents of the email to be disrespectful to herself, and all the Councillors, as everyone has their own point of view, which Cllr Williams should respect even if he does not agree with it.

Cllr Williams responded that the new plans (presumably Wood Lane) do not come up with what the Leisure Services want.

With regard to the White Lion development there are in excess of 70 detached houses which Cllr Williams did not consider to be appropriate.

Cllr Mrs E M Davies agreed that the content of the email is disrespectful to other members.
Cllr Mrs C Hinds statd that all the organizations in the village are aware of what is being offered, and are quite happy with this.

Cllr C Bithell considered that the County Councillors had their own views, and will put forward what they want, and this should be made quite clearly with regard to communications with the Planning Officer, and not put over that it is the views of the Community Council.

Cllr Mrs L Vidamour referred to the part of the email, “unless there is an audience at the meeting on Wednesday, the plans will be approved by the Community Council”.

Cllr Mrs Vidamour continued by asking what makes you think that an audience would influence the decision of the Community Council.  She considered this to be an appalling suggestion, which should not have been put in writing.  She considered that Cllr Williams have overstepped the mark.  At the meeting with the developers all pertinent questions had been asked, and the answers had been provided.

The Chairman, Cllr D Williams accepted that he had perhaps acted out of order, and so he apologised.

Cllr J W Bell stated his opinion insomuch that sending letters out to the public is unfair, and such matters should be discussed with the Community Council, and as the Chairman of the Council Cllr D Williams is here to conduct the meeting.

Cllr Mrs L Vidamour stated that Cllr D Williams is entitled to his own opinion, but that he must not speak about it in the way that the Community Council could be swayed.

Cllr Mrs M D Jones questioned whether the Planning Officer knew what Cllr Williams had said, insomuch that the Planning Officer is not doing his job as he should be.

Cllr Mrs J Howood suggested that Cllr Williams should send another email to the people that he had communicated with, stating that he had overstepped the mark.

Cllr Mrs E M Davies commented that in all her years, she has never before experienced action like this.

Cllr D Williams asked members to appreciate that he is attempting to do the best for the community, and that he is not wishing to miss out on anything that would be forthcoming under planning gain, and again asked members to appreciate that anything that he was doing, he was doing with the best interest for the community, and that if he had gone about it in the wrong way, then he apologised.

Cllr Mrs E M Davies referred to Council work over the last thirty years, but it is only over the last ten years that the year has changed with regard to land issues.

She continued that with regard to the previous Wood Lane development that she had been involved with, the developers did not have to provide a football field, but they did. (Is this the football field that can't be played upon because sheep are allowed to graze on thereby making a no go zone for residents to play football on due to possible transfer of animal disease? ) Penyffordd District

What we want now is good facilities, in the youth club, scout hut area, but cautioned that green could result in the builders walking away.

The discussion concluded with the Chairman, Cllr D Williams emphasizing that he was still relatively new to the position of Councillor and Chairman; he reiterated that everything that he had done again was in the best interest, and not for personal gain.

Resolved

That details of the foregoing dialogue be recorded. ( then kept from most people as they are on paper and not in digital format. PD)


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ps. David. If you want a more of an audience to see the workings of Penyffordd Community Cllrs get the council minutes published in digital format. Then they can all go on here. Scribe Nigel's secretary must have the minutes on a computer or does she use a typewriter?



I have been taken to task

by a leading officer of Flintshire County Council. Every morning traffic hammers through the village. Our county councillors David Williams, Cindy Hinds and community councillors continue to ignore this dangerous state of affairs.

I have replied to the leading FCC officer saying that if our councillors and Gosafe did their job properly there would be no need to raise the issue getting personal.

There is currently a measurement of traffic speed going on in Chester Rd. The data produced is static a point in time. What is not shown is that lots of vehicles are in acceleration mode when passing through the device.

The data of course will be kept secret. Nothing to do with Chester Rd community.
Leave it to us highway professionals we know best , you are all stupid.

We are five years into this, you're continuing lack of concern councillors for the safety of our lolipop man, school children, residents, post office users a glaring indictment.

Drag Night at The Red Lion - Ladies Only

Safety Thought for the Day

Are Penyffordd councillors risking the lives of Colin lolipop and school children and their parents who walk to school by failing to get Gosafe to come to Chester Rd at a relevant time. ie. during the morning rat run rather than 11 am Sunday morning?

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Our lolipop man Colin nearly gets run over

He's pretty easy to see Colin. He has a full fluorescent yellow coat on. This morning a women nearly ran him over. He had to slam his hand on her car bonnet to stop her.
He was standing in the middle of the road with his lolipop
Colin was rattled.
The incident was witnessed by three others including a former lolipop.
It has been reported to county hall.

A good case for taking the driving license off this women for a while?

A good case for 20 mph to slow down these manic robots whose only thought is to get to work as fast as possible?

Chester Rd is having a traffic survey

Two weeks after castigating Cllr David Williams in the local papers over short cut traffic levels through the village ( we'll ignore zero traffic policing) whilst his political bosses Cllrs Arnold Woolley and Tony Sharps have stopped speeding short cuts through their wards we find we are having a traffic survey.

Chester Rd has been allowed to return to part time trunk road status by our councillors ( god bless them)

The device used are the wires across the road which can measure exact speeds and even type of vehicle by measuring the distance between the wheels of vehicles which pass over the device.

Everything is digital now so the results can be whacked into MS Excel to show the true profile of traffic through Chester Rd.


This data is kept top secret we individuals who pay public servants are deemed too stupid to be allowed to look at such information that affects our environment and safety.

Two violent crimes and half a dozen anti social behaviours.

The two violent crimes are of concern.

Were the committed on open streets or in houses.
Were they committed during the day or at night.
Are the offenders out and about? (of course they are)
What was the reason and nature of the violent crimes?

Hawarden Road 1 anti social

Abbottsford Drive 1 violent crime
Hawarden Road 1 violent crime

Violent crime as described by NWP includes GBH, sexual assault, common assault.

The above blog was a voyage of discovery. The original link I got through a national newspaper had no links to such items as the crime map.

Rip Off Britain part 543

Pensions in The Telegraph

A Big Thank You to The Chester Chronicle ( my letter published today)

for helping to high light the continued daily assault by through traffic. Flintshire County Council and the Welsh assembly Government have long planned that Chester Rd would resume its former trunk road status as a large short cut to Broughton.

A pox on you all.

Our cllrs have just sat there like dummies. They won't get Gosafe and NWP involved in the morning rat run. Why is this so?

Why have HGV through the village.

Are we up to 4000 vehicles a day yet. Do our cllrs even care?

I am still of the opinion that former county councillors have sold us down the river.

It wasn't so long ago Flintshire councillors were griping over out of ward interference by Cllr Klaus Armstrong Braun.

These rules of course are for Klaus only. Big beasts such as Cllr Bernie Attridge and Cllr Tony Sharps operate across Flintshire with impunity.
