Well Done Bernie

I hate walking along the path on this road.
Cars doing 60mph within 4 ft of you

Lets go down the coast - or maybe not..



Source Daily Post

The main carriageway is closed heading westbound at J33B for Ewloe and J33A Northop Hall East. A coach and lorry have crashed. There is lots of queuing traffic and congestion going to J35 Dobbs Hill and on to the A494 and A548 Sealand Road and Drome Corner.

Time 10.56


postscript. I'll discuss traffic in N Wales later

Penyffordd Community Council stepping further into the 21st century?

A quick browse at the last meeting agenda shows an item to discuss a possible Facebook page for the council.

This is indeed a very large step forward if it takes place.

So if it happens we go from minimal council exposure to residents to maximum.
The item was discussed 2 weeks ago.

I would like to see it happen, not sure that councillors will though.

Local History - Sir William Gladstone

Penyffordd - Except for Access


Click image to enlarge

We have a bypass so why should through traffic come through village? You may say you pay your road tax so you are entitled to use roads that you choose.

Why do we allow HGV through the village?
I think we have local hauliers who drink in the local pub with certain councillors.

I'm told banning HGV is not possible for Penyffordd

Saughall councillors think otherwise.

Big Shoes to Fill

With the recent death of Tom Jones there now exists a position of Community Cllr. The notice is outside the post office.

Only skimmed document but it basically says that residents have a certain amount of time to put forward names of candidates. If no candidates are put forward the community council will pick someone.

The position lasts for a year until the next elections.

New Speed Camera not far away

Caergwrle to Pontblyddyn road outside Plas Teg
Caught a 100 in a week.
Just like shooting fish in a barrel

Parking on pedestrian paths

Flintshire County Council are responsible for policing parking prohibition and limits.

Someone did the All Day Breakfast last Sunday morning, left car parked on path at Chester Rd / Penymynydd Rd junction.

Result one parking fine.

FCC are playing hard ball over illegal parking.

Best park properly.

Penymynydd Road River

video

Won't be giving up the day job (video quality). There was a delayed reaction, downpour then it stopped. Then a large surge of water came down Penymynydd Rd. The highways drainage system can't cope, the covered stream that runs down Penymynydd Rd can't cope, the manhole covers are forced up with water pressure.

All Day Breakfast 2016


Polling Day

Two candidates to vote for.

1. Your representative to the Welsh Assembly.

2. A new North Wales Police Commissioner.

http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/election-2016-north-wales-prepares-11284586

http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/north-wales-police-crime-commissioner-11280606

I hope the new commissioner will be better than the current incumbent.

postscript: I talk pants. There were three candidates to vote for on 3 separate papers.
Also a first and second place for Police Commissioner.

The one I missed was for the Regional Candidate.
That's the one not many people know about.
I'd give you a link but a candidate list seems hard to find on the google.
Perhaps an irrelevance?

As is the EU?

We shall see.

A lot of you will remember dust issues

Here's an on going situation that has certain similarities to that which Penyffordd suffered from in the past.
I personally think its all sorted now around here.

How to get rid of your Community Council for beginners

Personally wouldn't dream of such a thing, might have done in the past.
A non starter here anyway.
I presume town and village councils are treated fairly similar under current legislation.

Here's the way you might go about it.

If you are going to protest about something.

You should know about this below which is totally wrong.
Not sure why we have a police commissioner, he's backing it.
We need someone to protect us from the police commissioner.

http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/police-chiefs-defend-snooping-your-11266662

postscript: Perhaps I should qualify further. If you protest or are a pain in the butt about something it may involve a community council, a county council, a police force, a political party whatever.

Discrediting individuals who make a stand or whistle blowers is  the way to go.

I know one person who lives in this village who got stopped 4 times in two weeks for breathyliser checks. His crime? Appearing before an enquiry criticising N Wales Police.

Mobile phones and computers are the perfect gift for those in power that abuse power.
