Wirral History Walks CateJones Yesterday at 06:37 PM
Hi,

I hope it’s ok to post this here.

As a bit of a lockdown project over the last couple of years, I set up an Instagram account to document each of my walks around the Wirral, and try to share a bit of the history of each area. WikiWirral helped with some of the info when researching!

If anyone is interested, it’s here https://instagram.com/walkswithmydogwirral?r=nametag

Completely understand if it’s not allowed!

Re: Sky Lantern diggingdeeper Yesterday at 10:29 AM
Many parts of the world have banned them including some areas in the UK. While the risk of any single lantern causing a fire may be low, the effects can be huge because they can land in unattended places. Numerous farmers complain about finding them in hay fields..

There are more than 200,000 fire lanterns sold per year in the UK.

Re: PS3 Controller Wanted Please. BultacoAstro 11th Aug 2022 11:17am
Dire Straights Money For Nothing.
Afternoon.
I discovered that the PS4 Control's work on the PS3 console.
The problem I have is when you pull out the charging lead I get a warning sign that control is not charged thoe it is.
PS3 console is old so no doubt there is going to be the odd glitch but it works and my disabled son love's playing on the Old game's.
This is just a head's up to any parent who might have the same problem.
I thought second hand PS3 Control's wear £10 but are in fact around £20 or near that amount.
This is just a head's up that the PS4 Control's work on the PS3.

Re: Voss Motors billy_anorak59 2nd Aug 2022 7:22am
Two heavily cropped aerials of Voss Motors - c1960. The road it is on is the A41 'New Chester Road' - in both cases the road leading away on the other side of the A41 is the drive to Carlett Park College (now gone of course, but the drive is still there). A Bathstore and Domino's Pizza place stand on the site of Voss's today, according to Google Maps.

Re: The old Farmers Arms Moreton bert1 31st Jul 2022 7:37am
The 1851 census, Joseph is recorded as Joseph Davies having married as Joseph Davies Brassey, I'm sure you know this. His next door neighbour and there's no way of knowing the distance between properties is Thomas Meadows, Victualler, Moreton. This property is probably the Farmers Arms or what became the Farmers Arms later.

Re: The State of Wirral these days 2022? mikeeb 31st Jul 2022 7:28am
Hoylake Road had signs saying it was closed for 6 nights at 7PM to 12AM from 18th July. The works ran over that time and it was closed on Tuesday and Wednesday but they didn't even cone off the road, and cars and buses were still driving down it and then having to do a U-turn. Bad management.

Anyway, I think there are worse roads about and Hoylake Road didn't need resurfacing.

Was also wondering, why did they resurface Hoylake road with tarmac and Bidston Road with grit?

Re: Parking fine diggingdeeper 29th Jul 2022 4:33pm
You are allowed to drop off at any time on most single yellow lines. The restriction is usually for waiting, not stopping.

Generally the sign tells you what you cannot do, it doesn't mention what you can do.

Re: Restaurant/pub with outdoor seating - Bromborough capitulinagarage 27th Jul 2022 11:16am
Nowadays, no shortage of restaurants can accommodate whatever kind of food you're craving. In some cities, it can be hard to find a restaurant with good food that satisfies your cravings. As a traveler, I often look for authentic places with the best food. The best one from my experience was riwa-restaurant.de , which served me the most delicious food I had ever tried. I've found that in most cases, the best way to find these places is through local recommendations. Suppose a place is popular with people who live in an area. In that case, it's probably an indication that it's great for travelers too. One of the best ways to get these insider tips is through TripAdvisor - or sites like it.

What do you call 'old' Mark?
For example, I think of the 60s and 70s as 'fairly recent', but you might think of that as 'old'.!

Re: Tracing history of Bob simister motorcycles. Lapin127 22nd Jul 2022 8:32pm
I noticed this enquiry and can give you a great deal of information about Bob Simister Motorcycles, as I worked there in 1965/66. The company was run by Bob Simister, a very kindly, true gentleman, his son Rob and Rob's fiance Lyd (Lydia?). - I was a very junior trainee and I never appreciated the kindness the family gave to their staff.
The business occupied a large converted corner Victorian house, (544? New Chester Road) over 4 floors, plus a cellar, small workshop at the back and there was a separate workshop, further up Nelson Road, behind the pub and a prefab storage building, filled with old British bikes, at the end of Nelson Road. The showroom had all the current bikes and scooters on sale - Triumph, Norton, Velocette, AJS, Matchless, Lambretta - new and used. There was also a showroom on the other corner of Nelson Road, with Sidecars and outfits. Saturdays were always busy, bikers coming from all over the north west and I had to run up and down all the flights of stairs, getting parts for these sadly unreliable bikes. The Japanese bikes, Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha, had only recently arrived in the UK and unfortunately, the supporters of all the old British bikes were reluctant to buy these newcomers, despite their vastly superior build quality, reliability and technical features.
I never kept in touch with Simister's after I left and gather that the business gradually faded - I have no idea when the buildings were demolished, now it's just rows of identical houses - maybe there's tons of old British bike spares buried there..... similar to the classic BMC car parts which were buried in a pit at Victor Horsmans Speke showroom.....but that's another story!

🛑 ғᴀɪʟᴇᴅ ʙʏ ᴛʜᴇ ɴʜꜱ 🛑

https://gofund.me/67fcff4b

I'm at my witts end and feeling very despondent. For the last 4 years, since being admitted in to hospital where I was diagnosed with Pancreatitis, shocking cholesterol levels, PCOS, Metabolic Syndrome, type 2 & type 3c Diabetes and sepsis. Struggling to stabalise my weight never mind lose it, despite eating low carb, low fat, low calorie and taking 3 kinds of medications that should control my metabolism.

I was told that if I didn't have a gastric bypass I wasn't likely to live long, but at least I didn't have high blood pressure. I started on the pathway to bariatric surgery, it took 18 months. But I met their goal to lose 13lbs. I was due to have my final review where I'd be put on to 'tier 4 bariatrics' where my case is put forward to a surgeon. That phone consultation never happened. No call. Nothing. I then received a letter stating I was a NO SHOW and removed from the pathway. Telling me I would have to contact my GP to be re refered. Annoying, but that's what I did. To then find out I was back to square one with them not taking my 13lbs weight loss in to consideration! So I did it again 18 months and another 13lbs. Final review was due and it happened again! No phone call. Followed by a text saying I was a NO show and I need to speak to my GP. Absolutely infuriating.

Also despite losing 26lbs I have now developed high blood pressure. (NO bloody wonder)

Then insult to injury, I recieved a call from the Exercise Physiologist, who I've spoken to every 3 months for 4 years.My goals were to stand up from bed every hour. But this time either her computer malfunctioned or her brain did as she asked me how many hours a week I was doing cardiovascular exercise.

I said, 'erm... none.'

Then she said I could go for a walk at lunchtime for example.

I said...'I would but I'm a wheelchair user that's bedridden, I cannot walk without it, unable to put clothes on due to a terrible autoimmune disease attacking my skin.' She went very quiet... no apology!
Then she made her excuses and went.

I've spoken to my GP who has told me there is no way we can negate the Bariatrics Pathway team on the NHS, I must do it all again.

According to NICE.ORG the criteria for surgical intervention says that with type 2 diabetes and other comorbidities, I should have been refered for surgery right away and not had to go through the tier 3 hoop jumpings!

Please find it in your heart to help me pay for Bariatric Surgery privately because I truly believe I won't be around by time I've completely the course for a 3rd time, and waited the NHS waiting times. Which are currently approx 3 years.

Oh, poor you! You have so many diseases... I am proud of you that you try to lose weight, well done! Your story is really awful, but I am sure that here's a lot of people who are ready to help you
