Welsh Assembly Government mark Penyffordd schools as effective

Scroll down page, put your postcode in.
You can toggle between primary and secondary education.

Some Flintshire school ratings surprising.
My old school, Sandycroft got Highly Effective..........

Follow the Beluga

If you go to

You can follow the progress of one of the Belugas taking Airbus wings to France.

One supposes you can also follow the progress of relatives and friends returning to
the UK (free taxi rides R Yu) if you have their aircraft number.

As you can see from above this particular Beluga is BGA114F

Parking News

Going after his second booking.

Someone has just been booked for parking on the pavement outside my house.
They won't be happy!

postscript. And someone further up the road towards the Millenium Clock.

It's like shooting fish in a barrel. I go through Hope regularly always one or two parked on the double yellows opposite the doctors.

Infinite revenue for the council.

Traffic News A483 Wrexham Chester

Apparently traffic was backed up all the way from Dobshill backwards to the Equestrian Centre past Hope this morning. This is an awful lot of traffic trying to avoid bedlam.

Ambulances - what sort of navigation do they use?

This afternoon there was an emergency in Chester Rd. The advance medic was on the scene. The ambulance was driving up and down Hawarden Rd....................

I use Google streets to find places I need to drive to. I usually do a dry run using my mouse.

One wonders what the ambulance service uses?

CRASH UPDATE: The A550 at Penyffordd is still closed after a serious crash between a motorbike and a car. No indication when road will reopen.

According to my Met Office page it is going to snow from now until the day after tomorrow. I hope it is not going to stick. Lets hope the forecast is wrong.

postscript: letters handed out to children's parents advising about snow conditions and school.  The BBC saying its currently snowing in Penyffordd. The Met Office saying its going to snow on and off for 36 hours.

Still no snow.....................

Parking in restricted areas

When Flintshire CC first took over policing of parking last year there was an initial flurry of fines for parking on yellow's in Penyffordd. Just to remind, traffic policing is still active. One old lady opposite Hope doctors was seen clutching a parking ticket. They are taking no prisoners.
