Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

On catch up again after another busy patch, so a compendium... Please can I second the vote of thanks for Stanley's moving story? (It moved me to laugh out loud at the outside staircase!)

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Leaf litter it is!

As I said, not much of a mystery.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

The lamppost has some paint scraped off it at a height of a truck's guard or bumper. A Co-op delivery wagon was seen turning in the road at the time that the column was pushed over... putting two and two together, I may be getting five! I'm pretty sure that if a car had pushed it over like that, it ...

My colleague Ken Hartley, who's a governor at Airedale, reports that the hospital has set up its own 'care home' where patients can be discharged to in the absence of residential places elsewhere.

Catching up after an absence of several days... Will post a fresh picture of Bankfield later (maybe on Bank Edge view).

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

The jury is still out for me on the local 'Transport Asset Management Plan' (TAMP) - which is what highway authorities have to have to get government funding. In a nutshell, this requires more less costly treatments being used to repair roads, rather than full resurfacing. The idea is that this 'sto...

Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

There are rustlings in the undergrowth about imposing unitary 'local' government for Lancashire, or Pennine Lancashire. To my mind, that would be an end of any proper local government for us. The potential for this happening is one of the reasons we're taking on more and more district council stuff ...
