Wiper mechanism needed Peter0787 20th Feb 2024 4:07pm Hi all,

Looking for a breakers yard that has the full wiper mechanism for a Citroen Nemo Van 2009?

Been on to Green Lane and the one on Borough road but no joy.

Any other places that I can try or does anyone have one?

Thanks

Milkman passed on my bank account details bobi1 26th Jan 2024 2:33pm My milkman sent an A4 printed note with my milk on 16th Jan saying he was retiring but was handing on the route (throughout the Wirral) to another company. It was obvious from the logo on the milk that arrived with the note that the new company had already started delivering my milk. I was not consulted in advance and would not have gone with the new company given the choice. Having texted the old milkman and getting no reply I tried phoning, no answer so I texted again, still no reply to date. Had to stop the deliveries from the new company (22nd Jan) who said I didn't have to pay for the milk they had delivered, I assumed that was the end of it until I noticed a direct debit had been set up for the new company! I have cancelled it but will be in contact with Trading Standards when their online form is available (currently down till this evening). Has anyone had similar issues? I'd just like to warn anyone who's milkman has said he has retired that your contact info may well have been passed on without your knowledge.

Novel about Wallasey in the 1970s and 1980s – help needed Cip0lla93 20th Jan 2024 11:03am Hi there,

I am writing a novel set in Wallasey in the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s. It’s a coming-of-age story about a young woman grappling with the aftermath of her older brother’s schizophrenic breakdown.

I was initially inspired by some of Tom Wood’s photos, which led to me to researching photography in the Wirral during that period more widely. My main character is an aspiring photographer – a young woman attending Wallasey College of Art. If anyone has experiences of studying there, I would love to hear your memories, so that I can build an accurate portrayal.
 
Likewise, if anyone has experiences that they are willing to share related to the treatment of mental illness/schizophrenia during that time, I would be grateful for your input. I have been reading about the transition from long-term hospital admission toward ‘care in the community’, and have accounts from my extended family, but I am struggling to find material related specifically to Merseyside. 
 
More generally, any anecdotes or info relating to this time would be hugely appreciated. My family and I are from the Wirral, so I have lots of stories from them as context, but I was born in 1993, so did not experience this period myself!

Thanks so much.

Birkenhead Town Hall - Sailor's Fund Investigator 5th Dec 2023 8:56pm Whilst researching another topic, I stumbled across the fact that Birkenhead Town Hall seemed to be used a lot for charitable events. One of which was a "Sailors and Soldiers" event, which was for orphans in the town. Which makes sense, because World War I was actively going on during this time and must have created many orphans. I read a figure that said 600 were invited to one of the events.

The "Sailors and Soldiers" events ran throughout the 1920's from what I can see. There's little to no information on the web about these events. Does anyone have a list of all these events? Photographs or newspaper clippings would be great to see. Or if anyone knows where I can find more information about these events? Surely this information must be archived somewhere. It seems like a big part of our WWI history, not just for the army themselves, but for their families back home in Birkenhead.

Rock Ferry to Liverpool Ferries Investigator 30th Nov 2023 7:34pm I'm doing a bit of research into all things history / wirral and I was looking at some of the stunning ferries that were traveling to and from Liverpool in the 1920's. Does anyone happen to have any news articles or information about the travel times from Liverpool to Rock Ferry Pier and vice versa - specifically in the 1920's?

Thanks in advance

Sat Nav Renault Kadjar pegsgirl 16th Nov 2023 8:54am Does anyone know how to update Sat nav in a Kadjar. Mine is 4 years old, I've asked dealership who advise I download on line via USB, tried that and I don't understand it, I apparently have to download a "toolbox" via Renault. Then save onto USB and then update incar. Such a long winded process but doesn't appear to do anything.
Any advice for a simpler way would be appreciated
Thank you
