Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

Thanks Stanley. Arrived with me yesterday... Apart from blaming Government cuts on everyone else, the most blatant Tory truth twisting is the article about road safety. They complain about investment being slashed, but 'overlook' that it was their own former Conservative administration at county hal...

Re: Winter 2016/17

Hope the chap on Church Street gets sorted. I regularly post links on facebook for people to report basic problems to LCC and PBC. Haven't counted, but I guess I report up to a dozen and a half issues a week. Stanley's lamp is at Hollins Court... Reported: reference number is 215150. You can check t...

Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

Can't comment about folk getting into national government - I've no knowledge or experience of that. What I have noticed is that people elected as MPs who've been councillors and held positions in local councils, tend to have more idea than those who haven't (these seems to apply to people of all pa...

Re: Winter 2016/17

That reminds me, the street lamp near the garages in Robinson Court has been flashing for weeks now.

Robinson Court or Hollins Court Stanley?

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Thanks Richard. My campaign to keep our bank has attracted a petition signature from Canada and I've had a message from the person involved to say they moved to Canada 40 years ago, but still have an account at YB Barnoldswick and visit the branch from time to time. Wonderful of keeping that connect...

Re: DISGRACEFUL BEHAVIOUR

The government really must stop the cuts. A glimmer of hope in Lancashire is the mitigation that community groups will be supported to set up 'Independent Community Libraries' (something I campaigned for on the county council). I've been trying to encourage the volunteer group at Earby New Road Comm...

Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

The blow of losing 'New Homes Bonus' (NHB) from the government is very dispiriting. The government offered a firm four year funding settlement. Although this showed our area getting less and less each year, we signed up for it as at least it gave us certainty. We got on with trying to save the one a...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Though the rescue plan for Earby Youth Hostel has worked, with the town council in Earby agreeing to accept a 'free' transfer of the building, and several people interested in operating the property, the YHA has acted disgracefully by, in Bob Abel's words, plundering the property of the Katherine Br...

No one is spot on, but it's a bit of a miserable mystery object, so I'll let you have it.

Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

For my sins, I sit on Lancashire's Local Government Pension Scheme committee. Over the last eight years or so, the fund has had a strategy which has included a higher proportion being invested in global investments. Since last June, these have "increased" in value quite significantly - about half th...
