Broadband News

Many thanks for the photos and Intell

Gateway to the 21 st Century

Perhaps I should be careful what I say but.....don't want to upset them.

BT contractors have recently connected Penyffordd Junior School with Fibre.
Or should I say dug trenches, run cable through to the Clock Tower and beyond.

One of my informants informs me BT will be connecting households in the Penymynydd Rd area to the fibre network.

There is currently  a little man working (update 3 men) in a box up Penymynydd Rd.

This should mean much faster internet and perhaps lower bills.

One presumes when it is all wired up we will be told.

We are however dealing with a public monopoly utility......................

Nothing happening in Penyffordd

In the Sunday Times Style section which is the lowest of the low they had Jeremy Clarke on the back page. Discussing his prostate cancer.
If you buy an ST you can read him

Here's his articles. Not behind the ST pay wall though.

The Spectator  (and Telegraph) let you read so much and the stop you and ask for money.
Delete their cookies and you can start again

If you want to help them click on a few adverts on their site.

postscript: Since I'm on the second page on google with regards this page perhaps I should explain myself. The ST Style section I think is facile pretentious rubbish. Do people actually use the language that's printed there?

Or this crap in The Telegraph

Hope you stay well Jeremy. Hope you're still doing The Speccy.

The Liverpool Daily Post - The End

The above paper has closed today.

This is sad but a reflection of current and continuing harsh conditions being experienced by Main Stream Media. ( and every bugger else in the real world )

Penyffordd District continues to make vast profits.

Chester Rd continued flooding

Penymynydd Rd used to have a ditch running down the side next to the Institute. It then runs under the road, down to the stream next to the footpath.

This was then put underground with pipe.

Every time it rains hard the man holes lift spewing many 100's of gallons on to Chester Rd and into neighbouring properties.

Due to pressure from residents Dwr Cymru are on the case. Apparently they are going to put CCTV down the tubes. They do however have their suspicions.

Are Chester Rd residents who suffer the prospect of flooding with every deluge to have sanctuary?

What has Penyffordd gained?

Following on from the person commenting about fracking. It gets me to thinking.

Various individuals have gained greatly from developments within the village. We have Wellhouse, White Lion, Coed y Graig, Turkey Farm Phase 1 and 2 (Wimpey).

These areas have only been allowed to be developed because we live here, that's us residents of Penyffordd district.

What have we gained?

106 agreements to allow for education by ratepayers on the new housing I think are pants.
They will be paying rates for education anyway, they are a con.

So what have we really gained?

Do we have a right to gain anything?

I'll start it off in comments.

Fracking for Flintshire

Flintshire has underneath it vast mineral resources. Coal, limestone, etc.

The UK Gov have already / are going to issue licences to explore for gas and oil that can be extracted by fracking.


UK Gov are currently between a rock and a hard place over energy security due to sitting on their hands for the last 20 years.

Does this offer a way out?

Environmental concerns seem not to be an issue with those in power.

Penyffordd district in the 1800's was a very dirty place indeed with the extraction of oil from coal. There were numerous extraction plants between here and Mold.

The River Alyn would have been black.

Will fracking come to Penyffordd?

Penyffordd Medical News

You may wonder why your doctor is pushing statins. Wonder no further.

One wonders what will be done in its place.

ps. I know an old lady who thought she was going to die. I suggested she see her doctor over the tablets she was taking. Yes, you guessed it, statins !

Stopped the statins, the awful bodily feelings went away.

It's time for Big Pharma not to able to influence doctors or government or to torture millions of creatures. The torturing of course a mandate by government.

A Leader who leads by example

This week the jokers (MP's) who led us into great debt (2008 and continuing ad infinitum) are demanding an extra £10k a year. We pay them to lead instead they acted like sheep.

Anyone who has any savings has paid greatly for our MP's folly.

Here's a man of substance.

He's my kind of person he speaks to frogs and insects.
Where this chap robbed from the banks to give to the poor
our leaders rob from the people to give to the banks for their gambling mistakes.

All change at Airbus

"This structural change will provide optimised market access, cost and market synergies and improved competitiveness overall."

There you go.............................

Nigel Jones' family turn on the Xmas Lights

Cllr Colin Bithell, chairman of the Penyffordd Community Council, said it was absolutely perfect to have Mr Jones’ family light up one of the new trees.

“They were Nigel’s idea,” he said. “The family were overjoyed to do it.”

Penyffordd will have three trees with the main one under the village’s Millennium clock.

Cllr Bithell said Mr Jones had suggested a tree would act as a central focal point for people to gather around and sing carols.

He said his friend had also been keen to help the council find ways of saving money.

“The lights were costing £4,000 each year, which was a lot for a small community,” added Cllr Bithell. “We thought it was a wonderful idea.

“We’re going to have three trees with this one in the middle of the village, under the clock – somewhere all the villagers can meet.”

Mr Jones’ daughters, Anna and Claire, son Rhys and grandson Cayo Jones attended the ceremony to switch on the lights.

Full story in The Leader

Next time you go to your doctor

Perhaps you may wonder at his/her reluctance to forward you on for specialist attention.
Perhaps it doesn't happen in Wales?
Best I ask.

Lorry crash Penyffordd

LORRY CRASH: A lorry has banged into a Flintshire railway bridge and trains have been stopped for safety reasons. The incident happened on the A5104 in Penyffordd.
More will appear in The Daily Post ( to the right )

The bridge is fairly easy to miss. It's on a straight bit.
The road to Pontblyddyn one of the most dangerous in Flintshire.

The Lowlands

have been having a bad time.

The attractions of Penyffordd were that it was a small Welsh village, it was well up above sea level and the mother in law could not get here on the bus!

When I were a lad in Scroft in 62 I had to wear my wellies to walk up the street. This of course was due to global warming.

When they canalised the River Dee they made it so water could not reach Sandycroft. Perhaps some one had left the water defenses up so that the river flowed back up the ditch.

I also walked on the River Dee in 1962. This not through Sainthood but due to the fact that the ice was a foot thick. I'm named after my dad's brother who drowned in Chester Canal in the blackout during the war.

The gateman at Graessers was under instruction to ring dad if I was seen heading towards the river.
The ditch that ran parallel to the road a perfect hidden route.

The threat of corporal punishment could not cancel the lure of the river.
It was also possible due to sandbanks to wade the river to the other side at Sealand.

Been there, got the tee shirt, the folly of youth.

An email from one of my councillors

Good morning!

     I really don't want to disturb you about this but I had no one else to turn to. I'm in Ukraine to see my cousin who lives here. she's critically ill and needs family support. She is diagnosed with (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) - a type of Blood Cancer in 2005 and she had been undergoing treatment since. The chemotherapy treatment was going fine until last week when the doctor noticed that the disease has relapsed and the only way she can survive is by undergoing a BMT (Bone Marrow Transplantation). My sister whose marrow matched she has agreed to be the donor and she will be undergoing the transplant soon at the Salvator Mundi International Hospital here in Kharkov, The estimate for the transplant is £6,000 GBP I have already spent approx. £3,500 GBP towards her treatment. Since the amount is huge, I request you to lend out a helping hand and support me with a loan of £2,500 GBP Since I don't know your financial status at the moment, any kind of help whatsoever will be deeply appreciated. Your help and support will give her a chance to live a normal life once again. There is nothing called a small help when the heart giving it is big. Any amount will be accepted with gratitude and paid back after the surgery. Please let me know how much you can loan me so that i can provide you with the details to get the money to me and, I will pay back as soon as I return.


Name and email edited out. Not sure how these work. This is the second cllr this year that has sent me one of these. The second cllr in question had to change email address.
Not sure if just the email name is borrowed or they take over the email account. Hope I don't find out the hard way...............
