Once again WIrral Council, show their total disrepect towards War Memorials within Wirral. The latest is the moving of the Memorial in Moreton, with the closure of Moreton British Legion. They seem to consider placing the Memorial on a busy road junction at Pasture Road, Maryland Lane suitable.
The postion for the Memorial must be outside of Moreton Library, the only reason for not using outside of the library can be they forsee problems if and when they close the library and wish to dispose of the site.
The total lack of any consultation on this and the silence of the six Moreton Councillors, who are normally quite vocal requires detailed explanation of the events leading up to the decision.
While the Council is duty bound by act of parliament to maintain War Memorials, they should remember they do not own them as with many nationally, the Moreton Memorial was paid for by public subscription. Is this the best WBC can do, I hope not, lets hope they see sense before they have to cancel Remembrance Sunday in Moreton due to the Memorial being on a road junction for health and safety reasons.

I consider myself informed and freshly educated to all the changes. But do be aware of false officials impersonating these officers.
Hi all, On my way to work and came across a cat that had just been ran over. By Leasowe Castle. Im afraid it has died. Its been hit at a fair speed so don't think it suffered. Driver hadn't stopped even though it had just happened. I did pull over but it was beyond help. Tried knocking on a few doors but no-one answered. Just thought id put it on here in case someone is looking for it - I'm not on facebook. Cheers

Hello again all, I have a 90 odd page document that I need editing and reprinting and the Header needs changing, does anyone no any person who charges for such a service? there isn't much of the doc to change. I have the original in hard copy not a computer file.
So my girlfriend broke her laptop screen and because i obviously have more money than sense i paid £90 for a replacement from ebay and figured i'd give it a shot of repairing it myself because i repaired mine myself and it wasnt too difficult.
Anyway new screen came today and i plugged i in as you do and all it dit was switch through black, white, red, green and blue. No display... took it out and put it back in a few times and nothing. But now theres nothing on the screen when i plug it in, have i knackered the cable? Is the new screen wrong?
I should add: everything works perfectly fine through hdmi into the telly and that between the screen flashing pretty colours and then it not working i could smell very faint electrical burn. Gonna get a t5 tomorrow and open the thing up amd see whats going on but wondered if anyone can diagnose from just what ice said here? Laptop is Asus UX303L running W10
The council in their wisdom have decided to cut the staff at Wirral archives to 2 instead of 3, so in future they are going to have to operate an appointment system to cope with enquiries. I am waiting hopefully for the council to declare redundancies amongst the councillors, I think I might have a long wait. Cuts in Libraries, now Archives whatever will be next?
Hello all,I have been sent a partly completed template for a method statement and risk assessment that I need for Friday morning and I'm struggling to open it, can anyone open it and print it out for me and maybe send it back to me as an email in doc format? I hope this makes sense as I'm just a novice, I really need the template for a new contract I've won so I don't mind paying for this service can anybody help please? thank you in advance.
Cannot find the thread about funerals we discussed so started again. Morbid subject I know. Another way to avoid the cost of funeral, body donation. Watched a very depressing programme last night on tv about donating your body to science. Very hard to watch and quite shocked .it followed a man who only had a short time left and he went down this road. We saw him talking about it and then the process of him being embalmed and prepared for the students. Couldn't do it myself but good that some people can. Did anybody else watch it?

Anyone see the monster plane circling over Wirral(Heswall)> 3.20pm ish. Looked like a military plane with 4 engine and massive tail. Nearest I can find is An Airbus A400M military transport plane or more likely a Boeing C-17 Globemaster
