Penyffordd moves to a different beat

School holidays have begun.
The kids disappear
Always wonder what they do in the mornings
Computer games? Television? Mobiles? Sleep?

A lot less traffic, no hassles parents in cars.
You can even drive into Chester easily

Penyffordd Health - Saturday Special

They're very clever bacteria. Here's an article on why antibiotics are failing.
If mine had failed I'd have been dead a week ago. Pneumonia does not take prisoners.
It appears we are growing new bacteria in the sewage works.

Water Works - Possible Lead Toxicity Issue?



Last week we had a letter from our water supplier to say that maintenance work will be carried out on the water main to improve flow. This would involve temporary water discolouration.

Today I see a sub contract company for the company who own the water network have started on Chester Rd.

It seems the job entails sending rods back up your tubes from the stop tap outside your house.
edit addition : perhaps they back flush?

We have lead pipes which must have a good internal deposit. Is it healthy to remove it?

Lead is nearly as toxic as the mercury amalgam that I have in my teeth fillings.......doh

Thinks I'll ask.
Or perhaps I need to look first.

No good have emailed Dee Valley Water on contact@deevalleygroup.com

You might want to too.

You may ask "and the photo ?" That is Johnny Depp playing The Mad Hatter in Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland. Hatters suffered from mental problems due to mercury exposure in the hat manufacturing process. We won't talk dentists and mercury exposure.

There's not much difference between lead and mercury.

DEFRA are in charge of water quality.
This is what they have to say about lead pipes. I found this tonight after writing article.

Speed Bump Dodgers on Chester Rd

A commenter says

"They need to put a kerb or a post to the left of the first speed bump on way into Penyffordd. People barrel down the road and swerve onto the muddy verge to avoid the bump. Seen two cars skid doing this when it's been raining. Accident waiting to happen."

School child nearly killed on Chester Rd Penyffordd yesterday

Not quite sure of all my facts here Edwina .......but here we go.

A schoolchild cycled down the Penymynydd Rd yesterday afternoon after 3.20pm  across the road onto the wide path outside my house then down to the Chinese then did an abrupt left hand turn on to Chester Rd in front of a moving vehicle that managed to miss child.

This scenario a nightmare of mine

Ysgol Penyffordd are aware.
Post office might be aware
Chinese was shut and won't be aware

Media should get permission to talk to council personnel

All Ysgol Penyffordd children are warned of the dangers of traffic on Chester Rd.

Time for compulsory 20mph between garage and institute and Penymynydd Rd to the school.


Note to Cllrs. Some drivers hammer over the speed bumps.

Apart from what I've said, I kno* nothing.
