18 minutes 7 seconds ago local coucillors by billyblue

just received a claughton and noctorum labour news letter through the post with lots of nice pics and bits of neighbour hood news in and was wondering is there any local elections due as it is the first time I recall receiving news around my area and would like to vote for councillors who I know are involved all year round rather than at election time when we get bombbardeded with news ltters.

Yesterday at 02:05 PM The man who eats roadkill by _Ste_

Interesting documentary on a norfolk man who eats what he finds dead on the uk roads.

Even if it has gone off and has green meat and stinks he still eats it.

Nice chap, he also says there is no god, he used to be a religious preacher years ago but turned the tables after asking a question.

Interesting chap.

Enjoy smile

16th Apr 2014 9:56am Bucket list no 1. Finding two English friends. by bobypam

Hello there,


I might be leaving it a little late, though I am trying to find two English friends I became good friends with over two years in Australia, in 1966-1968. Their names are Edward Fellows and Keith Prowse, and I met them when the three of us were working at Mt Isa mine 1966-1967, and then we drove over to WA in my 1964 Datsun Bluebird to work at Mt Tom Price. We separated in 1968; Keith, a fitter and turner, stayed at Mt Tom Price, and he always said he was saving enough money to go home to England to buy a Sunbeam Alpine. Eddie I think had a family member working further up north.


I know that as I'm 70 years now, one or both could have past on now as they were both smokers. If so I would like to contact their families - spouse, children, or friends. I was born 1943, and they were about the same, so I would say born 1937-1944. One of them Edward Fellows, I remember saying about getting a bus in Birmingham, and Keith Prowse said he came from the middle part of England.


They both had top of the range cameras, and took a huge amount of our outback adventures in Qld and WA, I would love to get some of them for my family. Most of all I still hope to speak to both of them.


My phone number in Australia is 0011 617 3286 3260 and my email address is bobypam@fastmail.fm. Trying to contact Edward and Keith is number one on my bucket list, I would say!


Kind regards,
Bob Burns

15th Apr 2014 3:24pm Lost Cat from Fort Perch Rock by davew3

Fort Perch Rock "guard cat" has gone missing since Thursday, has anybody seen him, he's much missed by the volunteers as he is part of the gang and he is not doing his duties, as he is supposed to sit around all day looking cuddly and getting fed by all, he's a lovely cat and is a poser when people are taking pictures inside the fort, so please keep an eye out for him and let the fort know, as he's never done a wonder off from the area, even if he goes outside the fort.

15th Apr 2014 10:37am Liverpool and Wirral fall silent for Hillsborough by Willo_

MEMORIAL services will be held on both sides of the Mersey today in memory of the 96 who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

Wirral Council is inviting people to gather at Wallasey town hall to mark the 25th anniversary of the tragedy.

A memorial will be held at 3pm at the steps at the back of the town hall - overlooking the River Mersey and across to Anfield.

The ceremony will be presided over by the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Dave Mitchell, Caldy Rugby Club Choir "Off-Pitch" will sing You'll Never Walk Alone, and Wirral Young Poet Laurette Beth Heale will be reading a lament.

A minute's silence will be held at 3.06pm, the exact time a quarter of a century ago that Liverpool FC's fateful FA Cup match was abandoned as the tragedy unfolded.

The Mersey Ferry will sound its fog horns, and barriers at both Mersey Tunnels will be lowered, as the bells ring out at the Anglican Cathedral, Liverpool Parish Church and other civic buildings and churches across Merseyside.

At Lime Street station, a huge screen will display a photo of each of those who lost their lives on April 15, 1989, in the crush on the Leppings Lane terraces at Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough ground as the cup semi-final versus Nottingham Forest got under way.

Leader of Wirral Council Cllr Phil Davies said: “The events that unfolded at Hillsborough shocked not only our community but also our whole country.

“The families and friends of the 96, who 25 years later are still fighting for answers, are in our thoughts and prayers and deserve absolute respect and admiration for their dignified and resolute determination.

"We will gather to remember those who tragically lost their lives at Hillsborough and also reflect on the long and difficult journey that their families continue in their search for justice.

“Anyone who would like to join us in paying our respects is very welcome to come along.”

Reverend Tom Carmichael will say prayers during an unofficial service of quiet reflection at the Hillsborough memorial in Port Sunlight at 3pm. The bells of nearby Christ Church will be rung 96 times.

Staff and shoppers at Pyramids Shopping Centre and Birkenhead Market will also observe a minute's silence.

Liverpool will come to a standstill as the city remembers in silence. Across the city, public transport will be halted at 3.06pm.

The silence will be observed at Anfield, where loved ones of victims will join players, staff and senior representatives of the club among 24,000 people attending the annual memorial service.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will give a reading at the service as well as Roberto Martinez, manager of Everton.

Thousands of football scarves will be laid out on the pitch in the shape of "96", donated from fans and clubs across the UK and beyond after an appeal from Liverpool FC for scarves to show a symbol of unity across fan rivalries.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: "This year marks a pivotal moment in the history of the Hillsborough tragedy and the families' long fight for justice.

"Not only is it the 25th anniversary of the tragedy but we also have the start of fresh inquests into how the 96 lost their lives.

"We will never forget those who died at Hillsborough, and this is a day for us to unite as a city and remember each one, and also their families and friends left behind.

"I urge everyone in Liverpool, and across the region, to observe the minute's silence, stand shoulder to shoulder and remember the 96 fans that went to a football match and never returned home.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones today."

Some of those present at today's memorial are witnesses in the new inquest into Britain's worst sporting disaster, which began last month and resumes next week.

The original accidental deaths verdicts in 1991 were quashed in the High Court in 2012 after a long campaign by the fans' families.

The memorial at Anfield is scheduled to start at 2.45pm.

Twelve of those who lost their lives in the disaster were from Wirral and Ellesmere Port.

They were:
Peter Burkett, 24, Rock Ferry.

Ray Chapman, 50, Prenton.

James Delaney, 19, Ellesmere Port.

Christopher Edwards, 29, Ellesmere Port.

Thomas "Steve" Fox, 21, Birkenhead.

James Hennessy, 29, Ellesmere Port.

Arthur Horrocks, 41, Bebington.

Anthony Kelly, 29, from Rock Ferry.

Graham Roberts, 24, Wallasey.

Dave Thomas, 23, Higher Tranmere.

Chris Traynor, 26, Birkenhead.

Kevin Traynor, 16, Birkenhead.

15th Apr 2014 7:57am Meols Drive Closed in Hoylake for 2 wks by Mark

United Utilities will be undertaking emergency repairs to a collapsed main line sewer along the 1540, following detection of large depressions in the carriageway.

A spokesperson for Wirral Council said: "For road safety reasons and due to the nature of works involved it will be necessary to install an emergency road closure to enable the contractor to carry out essential operations and ensure a safe working area is maintained.

"United Utilities have been instructed to complete this urgent work at the earliest opportunity to avoid any conflict with preparations for the Open Golf Championship event."

Through traffic will be diverted via Black Horse Hill, Frankby Road, Pump Lane, Heron Road and vice versa.

15th Apr 2014 6:52am Hillsborough...read this and remember the 96 by organiser

From Mersey Magazine.

On this the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, Mersey Magazine remembers the 96 Liverpool FC fans who died by reprinting the Hillsborough poem.



A HILLSBOROUGH POEM

Check the tickets in my wallet then swig a cup of tea

7.30 in the morning One game from Wembley

Out the door and on the street off to meet the boys

To sing the songs we love to sing and fill the ground with noise

The coach pulls up and we all pile on belly full of butterflies

Then off to Sheffield we all go the FA cup our prize

9.00am and the songs have started I talk about the game

To a young lad thats sat next to me I didn’t catch his name

The journeys taking hours and we cross the Pennine hills

But my mind drifts off to Hillsborough as I dream of Beardsley’s skills

“My favourite players Aldo” says the boy sat next to me

His eyes full of excitement and his words are filled with glee

“I’m meeting me mate when I get to the ground, he’s travelling up by train”

“I’ll see you back here on the coach when we’ve beaten Forest again”

The coach pulled up and off he went going to meet his friend

I check my ticket once again THE LEPPINGS LANE END

Its getting near to kick off and I’m getting close to the ground

But nobody seems to be moving I’m stuck tight in this crowd

I’m just starting to panic and a bizzie opens the gate

A red tide moves down the tunnel moving closer to their fate

I remember clearly that tunnel and the light shone at the end

And as I think back to that fateful day I still can’t comprehend

That the coppers called us vandals and drunken loutish liars

And the media fed us spite and hate when compassion was required

But back to that day and the things I saw unfold before my eyes

The sight of grown men screaming And the air was full of cries

But I was one of the lucky ones because I came home alive

I watched heroes in scarves on the pitch trying helplessly to revive-

Their friends their family and strangers who’d all come to watch a game

But their lives were crushed that fateful day on a terrace called Leppings Lane

The memories still haunt me every time I go to sleep

But there’s one memory that gets me and always makes me weep

Back on the coach with my head on the glass I remember my heart it skipped a beat

When I turned to the young lad next to me And noticed his empty seat

There were 96 empty seats that day 96 friends that we lost

And while Kelvin counted the pennies the families counted the loss

So next time you’re at Anfield visit the eternal flame

Feel the stone cold marble And touch a person’s name

And while you say a silent prayer and your dreams are tossed and blown

Remember those 96 empty seats that must never walk alone

Justice for the 96

You’ll Never Walk Alone

14th Apr 2014 6:21pm Phone Contract upgrade: HELP! by j_demo

Phone contract upgrade due up in 6 weeks or so and I get an upgrade, but what phone do I get???

i currently have an iphone 4 and while it's a stable and alright phone but i want something a bit 'better'

i'm gonna stick with my current provider (EE) so all handsets will be on 4G and don't worry about monthly/upfront cost etc, i'll worry about that. I'd ideally like some open and honest reviews from anyone who has any of the following phones:

HTC One M8
Samsung Galaxy S5
iPhone 5s (gold... obv)
Sony Xperia Z2

so if so, what's the good and bad points? anything that you'd like to see made a bit better or that let the phone down a bit?

if you recommend any other phone then please specify

Help me out here guys & girls!!!



ps. i'm not interested in purchasing a handset outright or second-hand so don't try and sell me your "just upgraded, not wanting it so will sell on the handset and it's still in the box" phone, i'm not interested... you know who you are.

13th Apr 2014 6:29pm Painting Exhaust Manifold by turnip

I'm currently in the process of completely overhauling an old rover, sorting the body out, rebuilding the engine and doing a full respray.

I have just taken the exhaust of and while I will be replacing a couple of bits of it I'd really like to save the manifold. I'm looking at rubbing it down/blasting it and either painting it or coating it in something that will last long.

Anyone got and hints, tips or product recommendations?

13th Apr 2014 12:41pm Blasting wheels by sean

Does any body have or have access to a sand blaster and fancy doing a foreigner for me?
I need 4 alloys blasting back metal so I can refurb them. A local well known powder company quoted me £25 per wheel, which I think is a bit steep just for blasting.
If anybody fancies doing them cheaper for me I would be a happy chappy.

Thanks

11th Apr 2014 8:25pm WW2. Parkgate bombed. by RUDEBOX

Was chatting to my Grandad today about the War.

He told us that the first bomb to land on our peninsula was at Parkgate- the Germans had obviously mistaken the Dee for the Mersey.

This was a 'big deal' and he travelled from Wallasey Village to Parkgate to go and view the damage- I assume lots of people went to view the damage.

Does anybody have any further information- dates etc (Drawing a blank on Google). Thanks.
