Today at 09:50 AM Latman needed by Martin1943

Hi, I am adapting an electric motor to start my Lister CS generator. Does anyone have contact with someone who could do a little lathework for me?
I have a pulley which needs its centre turned out to around 72mm, also an aluminium bush to adapt from about 35mmID to about 12.5mm.
It's so I can fit a one way bearing between the motor and the engine. My Lathe is just too small.
Or perhaps someone with a lathe he want to swap for my model makers lathe???

Yesterday at 02:43 PM Dog rescue on mud flats Heswall by Tilly

One of our rescue dogs escaped after a tree fell on the cabin during the high winds.
No one or other dogs where hurt, just this boy decided to run bless him.
He's a romanian rescue dog and had only been in the country for 24 hours.
The poor lad. He was stuck there all night. Thanks to rspca inspector Anthony Joynson, the fire brigade, RNLI, Mandy one of our volunteers who very typically risked her own life and the couple who live on a boat near these mud flats who fed and watered him through the night. We Thank you all ️XX XX ️XX

The dramatic rescue was captured on film by Channel 5, who are currently filming for the next series of the Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies.

Yesterday at 01:59 PM Children's Clothes 'Swap Shop' by Samsamsam

(I have a poster to post - but no uploads allowed - so bear with me please...)

St Chad's Church, Leasowe

The church is setting up the opportunity to exchange children's clothes, a 'SWAP SHOP'!

Parents can come along and hand in those items of clothing that their children have outgrown all too quickly. In exchange they can then select an item in a larger size that will fit their growing child.

In the absence of being able to offer clothes for exchange, the opportunity will be provided to make a small donation, if able.

All we ask is the all clothes brought in for exchange are washed, ironed and repaired where necessary. Clothes will be stored at St. Chad's.

All children's clothing in good condition will be gratefully received.

Alternate Tuesdays, commencing
Tuesday 7th October 2014
11am to 2pm

Free tea and coffee!

22nd Oct 2014 1:24pm Worth a look by venice

Maybe for next time if youve missed this holiday. Off Money saving expert site


Teens in England and NI who are aged 16 (and turned this age before 31 Aug this year) or 17 at the time of the trip can apply to the National Citizen Service to go on a week-long course (including three nights away) and 30 hours community work. Activities include canoeing, climbing and hiking.

It's either free or no more than 50, with all meals, activities, transport and accommodation included.

How: Go to the National Citizen Service site to enter your details and to find out about your nearest scheme (parents or teenagers can fill it out).

The programmes will take place during the dates of your local area's October half-term week. You can book up until the start of a programme in your area providing there's availability - this means it might be too late for some of you to join in this half-term.

There are hundreds of places in all areas of England and NI taking part in the scheme. It's a Government initiative and bursaries are available as providers aren't allowed to turn away kids for financial reasons. This has been popular with MoneySavers before.

What does the course include?

Days 1-4 (three night, four day residential): Teens will stay at an outdoor activity centre and take part in activities such as hiking, kayaking and rock climbing. This part of the programme focuses on personal and social development.
Days 5-7 (at home): Teens will take part in team workshops to learn life skills, such as first aid and financial management. They will design a social plan to make a positive change to the local community. This involves spending an extra 30 hours on evenings and weekends after the course to deliver it.
They'll also get a certificate signed by the Prime Minister.

For all the details, see National Citizen Service Deals.

20th Oct 2014 1:30pm New Ferry tram depot by 8HBob

The former Birkenhead Corporation tramcar depot from New Ferry is just about to be dismantled - for the second time.
The structure was disposed of in 1927 & moved to Corwen where it became Corwen Pavilion. The curved openings for the trams at either end can still be seen in the corrugated iron sheeting. The building has been derelict for some time & is full of asbestos containing materials.
The building is next to the new Llangollen Railway terminus on Corwen Common.

19th Oct 2014 2:08pm Good idea for tax disc holder by Willo_

POLICE have dreamt up a new use for the licence disc holders that every car carries on its windscreen - one which could save lives.

The switch from paper tax discs for cars to the new electronic version has meant that the familiar transparent plastic envelopes have become obsolete - but PC Dave Wise and colleagues have thought up a new use for them.

They have come up with an emergency contact information and medical alert card.

PC Wise said: "This is a really useful replacement for your tax disc. if a driver is involved in a collision or has a medical emergency whilst at the wheel, a first responder will have easy access to vital medical information and we can quickly contact next of kin.

"The way the disc folds in on itself means all the information is kept private until needed by emergency services personnel."

The policing team, based in Malvern, Worcestershire, put the template for the form on their Twitter account, @MalvernCops

It can be easily printed out, cut out, filled in, folded up and placed in the holder.

"We will be linking in with local ambulance and fire commanders to make them aware of this initiative so they can be on the lookout for these emergency contact discs," said PC Wise.

You can download and print the form here

...has won the Riba Stirling prize. Great looking building; so much better than the awful Birmingham Library which won the popular vote. I remember visiting the original Everyman several times back in the 1960's/70's.

This morning the front spring snapped on my 06 318d. It is stuck on my drive at the moment. Can anyone give me a price to fix it. It obviously can't be moved but there is plenty of room to get to it. I've got it jacked up and the wheel off if anyone needs to take a look.

16th Oct 2014 11:05pm Trades in Poulton/Wallasey in 16th/17thcentury by granny

I've been trying to find anything which would indicate, trades in the Poulton or Wallasey areas during the 16th and 17th centuries.

With that in mind I wondered why the Cheshire Cheese Pub was so called. Apparently the name of the pub was mentioned in 1500's and although it has moved from it's original home, Wallasey Village has changed much. The first Cheshire Cheese was taken by road to London from Chester in 1623, and hence forth taken by sailing vessels as it was in great demand and classed as the best in the country.
I wondered if the pub could have any connections with the cheese being made in or shipped from this area also.
Anyone know of any other trades. I thought I read somewhere and can't remember where, that there was leather tanning in Poulton, which would have been a perfect area with the river and the oak trees.
I think cordwaining was also in Poulton/Wallasey area.
