22nd May 2017 4:43pm Cherry Tree Centre Right Of Way by clocko

Hi
I am searching for the planning documents for the cherry tree centre & wilkinsons in Liscard.
I am looking to see how the public right of way through the centre was removed & the legal documents to do with it's removal.
It seems wirral borough council has lost the documents or cannot find them ( I wonder why )
I am also interested in any details that people can provide about the valuable works of art that were stored in the council basement in the corridors to gather a list of those that were stolen when under the care of Wirral Borough Council stored unlocked near a unlocked door in the basement corridors of Wallasey Town Hall.

20th May 2017 11:54pm Corbyn Rally by Excoriator

I went to the West Kirby Rally today, and got there about an hour and a quarter before the great man arrived. The crowd was already huge and swelling. For curiosity I counted arrivals coming from the promenade over a one minute period and got a figure of about ten a second.

Joining the crowd I kept an eye on the flow of people and it stayed at about the same or more for at least an hour. That means 36,000 people.

Imagine my surprise to find the figure of 2,000 bandied about by the likes of the Wirral Globe. I have no experience of estimating the size of crowds, but stand by my estimate based on the rate of arrival. If anything my estimate would be low; I had no view of people coming from Dee Lane.

It is an indication of the bias that exists in the media that such a low figure should be published. But never mind. The polls are swinging Labour's way. The Tory lead is now about 9% and falling fast. I don't think Treeza's going to get quite the coronation she was hoping for. Even the Mail on Sunday is showing a 12 point lead, down from its previous figure of 18%

Personally, seeing what she's promising in her manifesto, I wonder how much worse she will be in power, and would be very glad to see her lose.

20th May 2017 1:58pm Soldiers billeted at Hotel Victoria Heswall 1939 by NickWirral

I would be interested to hear from anyone who has any information relating to soldiers of the Royal Army Service Corps who were billeted at the Hotel Victoria Heswall and also several empty houses nearby in 1939. Many of these soldiers later served in France and evacuated from Dunkirk in 1940.

Any information gratefully received.

Nick.

17th May 2017 9:16pm Apple iOS 10.3.2 urgent update by diggingdeeper

iOS 10.3.2 has been released and it is highly recommended to do an immediate update.

It fixes an embarrassingly large number of vulnerabilities as well as some bugs (but not all) left over from iOS 10.3

If you get an email or text with any link to do this update I would recommend you ignore it (I got one of TalkTalk just after I updated, it might be genuine but why take the risk?). Just go to settings-general-software update

It is yet another big update and does take quite a bit of time, make sure your battery is topped up etc.

13th May 2017 2:49pm Free - Solvent Weld Pipes by diggingdeeper

White 3m X 32mm ABS, about half a dozen. Bit dirty but unused.

(note that 32mm solvent weld is slightly bigger than 32mm)

Leftovers from a mid-project change of plan.

PLEASE PM, I will not correspond about disposal on this thread.

Transport:

I can move these, a small fuel donation would be appreciated though not mandatory if you are feeling the pinch.

If you are picking up then of course I will lend a hand.

I am willing to split but only if nobody wants to take the lot.

13th May 2017 2:43pm Free - Plasterboard by diggingdeeper

About a dozen sheets (plus various offcuts if wanted), leftovers from a mid-project change of plan. Normal sort of condition after being moved around a bit, the odd bruise and scrape.

1800mm X 900mm x 12.5mm square-edge

PLEASE PM, I will not correspond about disposal on this thread.

Transport:

At a push I could move these but some/all sheets may get damaged (they fit inside my vehicle but not on a level surface), I would need help loading and unloading and a small fuel donation would be appreciated though not mandatory if you are feeling the pinch.

If you are picking up then of course I will lend a hand.

I am willing to split but only if nobody wants to take the lot.

12th May 2017 7:24pm Builder problems, advice needed by TudorBlue

Having a nightmare with a builder/Gardner. To cut a long story short, we wanted our back garden landscaped, eventually we found one who seemed reasonable. He wanted quite a large deposit to book a day he would start, my wife deposited the money in his account. Come the day he was due to start, he didnt, he made some sort of excuse up. That was on the monday, he didnt start until the Wednesday. He dropped off two you lads who, fair enough ripped up my old lawn and flags. They did two days work (The Wednesday and Thursday), no sign of them Friday. Unbeknown to me, my wife had even him more money. He started coming up with extra work which needed doing, my wife gave him more money. Things have gone from bad to worse, hes now halted the job as we have refused to give him more money. The last work that was done was to lay down crush (which is substandard) and run which is only about half to an inch thick. Rather than get a skip, he put the rubbish in my front garden and basically left it looking like a building site. He keeps messaging me on Facebook, asking me to give him more money. I haven't answered. He has even called me aggressive and talked about an exit plan as he didn't like the way I was with him, asking him wtf he was up to.I haven't been aggressive or given him any kind of abuse other than speak my mind.

I want to go through the small claims court or even see a Solicitor, as it stands ATM, I'm quite a lot of money down, money I cannot afford to lose. Any help and advice with this will be very much appreciated right now so thanks in advance guys.

12th May 2017 12:19pm Mitsubishi Specialist Locally? by rhoobarb2002

Anyone know of any Mitsi specialists locally?

My car has a crankshaft sensor fault, and my local garage is having difficulties getting it sorted without potentially costing big money. Basically the sensor is in an akward position between the engine and gearbox, and cannot be easily accessed without dropping the gearbox out, or with a tool (that may or may not exist, even Mitsi tech support were unsure if such a tool exists). The garage is trying to work a way around it, but I thought I would see if there are any local specialists that have experience in this.

Gallaghers (Mitsi Dealer) at Sandycroft were only helpful enough to give me the Mitsi tech support number, they would not comment on anything else without seeing the car.

A call has been put out to anyone who has hedgehogs in their garden, if they can put out drinking water for them, in a shallow bowl or plate. They are dying from dehydration.

Just put water out anyway, as we may not know if we have them or not.

Thank you.

9th May 2017 4:13pm Pheasant by granny



We have a lovely pheasant visiting the garden this year. He's coming on a regular daily basis. Morning, early afternoon and evening. He doesn't have a mate with him, so would not know if he has one or not. He spends a lot of time pecking away, and seems in no hurry to return home at any given time.

I was surprised to read that they only live about 2-3 yrs max. in the wild, if they don't get shot and 35% of chicks die before they reach 6-10 weeks old.

We had a courting couple about 2 or 3 yrs ago, and I wonder if this is the same chap returned . I will never know. That couple used to do a circular tour, from across the main road ,up the side street and through one garden to access the back of mine, then they would slowly meander down with him always leading the way. His girlfriend followed submissively, as we do ! I'm not sure if this chap uses the same route coming, but he does tempt fate as his route home takes him across the main road from a different starting point, slowly walking across between the traffic.

I can't watch any more !
