Re: Mopeds

The "sillies" also have a tendency to drive straight at pedestrians crossing the road and laugh when they have to jump/run out of the way, hopefully fast enough to be missed. Happened to me once, seen it once!!

Re: Ignition Brewey needs our help!

I've just spoken with Ignition and they weren't aware that current users of the space hadn't been informed. Their plan is outside of taproom opening times to utilise the space for community activities as much as possible so they will be working with the groups involved to see how existing activitie...

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

If anyone is interested, we could meet up at the building to chat. It is much easier to grasp the situation that way, as much of the issues are of scale, & photos are rubbish for that. I am up for a meeting at 6.30 tomorrow evening, so please come along then. I will see if a councillor is available...

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

Thanks for pointing out aspects of the detail!

TBH I'm not overall enamoured with even the original drawing ...the design does not either reflect or complement the surrounding buildings ...and the cladding certainly doesn't! I have seen many better new school buildings.

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

Think I am missing something. The top picture is Phase 1 and completed. The bottom picture is Phase 1 and Phase 2. The building to the left in the second (drawing) photo is Phase 2 has not been built yet. What am I missing? Phase 1 does not look much different than the drawing. It looks cheap and n...

Re: kinleigh folkard & hayward

Yes after a good deal of chasing they said they would start after Easter ie in April. The agent has also been putting on pressure as the planning permission for the windows was over a year ago. The new unit is a shell so a large chunk of investment to fit out. Good news things are finally on the mo...

Re: Queensthorpe Road Smart Bench

I think the smart bench is a good idea, a good useful addition to the High St and the design ....could be a lot worse frankly and not dreadful ....and its a seat to sit on in this hot weather!!
