Might be bit dumb here, but does anybody know what 48 New Ferry Road means. Is it just the index number,only my Great Grandad lived at 51 New Ferry around that time.

They are indeed putting boards up, but I will be checking with the Council about something everyone seems to have forgotten. I attended and spoke at the planning meeting when permission was granted for the replacement housing. I remember that permission was granted on condition that "no building works can start until a second additional application has been submitted and approved for the erection of a memorial to the Great Eastern, the design of the said memorial to be agreed in conjunction with the community and surrounding residents."

To my knowledge (and I've been patiently waiting all this time) NO PLANNING APPLICATION has been submitted for the memorial, there has been NO CONSULTATION and therefore, if one brick is laid on the site, they will be in breach of the planning condition. Tut tut.

Such a sad tale of a lovely and historic local building. I find it dreadfully sad to see pubs being torn down. They are far more than just the sum of their bricks and mortar, they are the holder of local memories, a vessel full of shadows of the past, a tangible link to our very own history. If I had my way none would be allowed to go but out-of-town developers and greedy PubCo's care nothing for history and see only pound signs.....shame.

Yes some lovely new 'boxes' going up 'cos that's what The Ferry needs isn't it? No community just little boxes where people go to drink their cheap supermarket plonk and never meet the people they share their town with......like I said, shame.

Precisely why they should be preserving pubs and the like and trying to instil some sense of community and communal responsibility for what goes on in the area where that community lives instead of closing themselves away with a bottle of £8.00 Vodka and accepting the feral youth culture.

im sorry but who really wants to go drinking round there, its the best thing the council have done is get rid of the pub and bulid some affordable homes for first time buyers and make some good use with the waste land that is there !!!

Hi, I've only just joined but feel incensed enough to ask what is wrong with New Ferry? Why such negative comments? I have lived here for over 12 years and it's a lovely place.
I used to go to the Great Eastern many a time before I moved, then used it as a local when I came to live in this area. There was a petition to keep the pub, which loads of people signed. Unfortunately, they wanted the land to build flats on at the time, so it got knocked down
Not once has there been any trouble around here and the people I've met are very friendly.

PLEASE LEAVE US ALONE.
