Much Problems Dobshill

A concrete mixer lorry went off the road lunchtime on an A55 slip road. Police had closed the roundabout. They also say Tinkersdale road is shut. This is still ongoing now gone 6.00 pm. A crane has been procured to remove mixer.

Penyffordd Wine Circle

A good turnout for a talk by Ray Jones of Chester on North Wales history. He covered our history between 2000 BC up to Henry VIII.

A most interesting talk with photographic stills which covered ancient bronze axes, the Roman, Saxon, Norman and English partial conquests of N Wales.

Also the Mold Golden Cape and mining in Flintshire.

The main thrust of his talks took in Wat's Dyke which runs close to Penyffordd and Offa's Dyke.

Friday Night Early

Used to listen to this in The Stanney, Ellesmere Port


Short Cuts

Chester Rd is currently a short cut for road workings at Posthouse A483 /A55 which is 4 miles away.
Saying that Chester Rd has always been a shortcut for the Penyffordd Bypass something I think should be prevented.

A commenter on the 2nd previous post states that Taylor Wimpey are looking to buy up property on the Towers estate to make an extra vehicular access for the estate they are building.

This is wrong. Most certainly outside the planning permission.

Estates are made cul de sacs on purpose, its good planning practice.

This is bad for the Towers estate. Some drivers disregard all safety issues whether its dashing to work or doing the school run.

If there are going to be holdups at Penyffordd Butchers planning permission in its current form should not have been granted.

Anybody's thoughts?

Election News - Everything is Rosy

lastfreeman20 hours ago

1. National debt 4 times higher than 15 years ago. Even at low interest rates the payment is higher (much) than the defence budget. The annual Gov deficit still £90 billion.
2. Individual debt as high as Portugal's.
3. Individual savings including pensions, destroyed by 6 years+ of 0.5% base rate.
4. Unlimited immigration overwhelming housing, schools, health & transport.
5.Transport & energy infrastructure neglected.
6.Whats left of UK industry in foreign ownership.
7. A political class obsessed with gimmicks rather than boosting UK industry.
8. The 2008 Climate change Act that will cut UK emissions by 80% & shut British industry, with the jobs going to higher polluting China.
9. A political obsession with high foreign aid & crazy high subsidies for wind turbines.
10. Hugely expensive gold plated pensions for the high ups in the public sector.
11. A housing price bubble stoked by help to buy.

How to become a Billionaire

No news day in Penyffordd. Its sunny and the morning speedy rush is well gone. It's like the tide, its here every workday.
Anyway Elon Musk's former wife has something to say.

"One reason they become the entrepreneurs they become is because they can't or don't or won't fit into the structures and routines of corporate life," she wrote. "They are dyslexic, they are autistic, they have ADD, they are square pegs in round holes, they piss people off, get into arguments, rock the boat, laugh in the face of paperwork."

Justine Musk reminds me of Rachel Allen the celebrity chef.

Justine forgot one " a touch of Aspergers"

A Chinese Surprise

No , not next door.
A mystery package from the postman with Chinese characters on the outside.
Its from Gary Wang of Guangzhou, Guangdong.
The package has about 30 seeds in it.
No invoice
Ordered sometime in the last month after a glass of red.
Mostly 99p wins.

After that we're guessing.
Are they tomatoes or peppers?
They're not strawberries.
A look though my Ebay purchase list.
Names of the sender and supply company can differ
Final solution, plant them in the propagator
and see what comes up.

Penyffordd Recycling Centre

We haven't got one of course.
Some would say why do we want one?

Moves are afoot to close the centre at Hope.
They want us to recycle our rubbish but they want us to travel further by car to do it, using more fuel.
The bus is out of the question of course.

I think residents should be able to swap rubbish at the tip if they choose. It's our rubbish. We should be allowed to skip dive, I'm often tempted lol.
A free mention in the local papers the outcome.

It helps to limit land fill. One person's rubbish another person's gold. It's how I make my living.

Instead recycling centres are built like prison camps with CCTV recording your every move. The council make a nice little earner on the scrap. They operate like Mafia.

For a long time now I've used Buckley Recycling Centre on the Spencer |Industrial Estate on Liverpool Rd. It can be got to via Wood Lane, Drury. It's a lot larger than Hope.

I don't recommend Saturday mornings ever.
I hate turning up with rubbish when the gates are shut and there's a queue

I think Queensferry is shut with Sandycroft being the one.
If you fancy a ride out into the country try Mold.

Aaron says closing sites will improve performance.
Aaron talks pants, he is however a very nice man.

Election News - Just fancy that !

Some of the more aware among'st you ( not me) may have spotted the Green Party election leaflet pushed through your door. The candidate Kay Roney.

Apparently The Green Party don't know their  Delyn from their Alyn and Deeside.
Last time I looked Penyffordd was in Alyn and Deeside.
Kay Roney is standing for Delyn.

To be fair Delyn also has a Penyffordd something I need to check when looking for news for the village.

Tx Gill for the heads up!

Penyffordd residents complain about access to new Health Centre

Not the one in Penyffordd silly !
We haven't got one.

One of the biggest failures of Penyffordd Cllrs of various persuasions over the last 30 years is the non establishment of a permanent health centre in Penyffordd.  IMHO

I say this with 100% hindsight

The story is here

I recently had to go for a 3rd time to get a prescription arranged. (not the above centre, the one across the road)
It had gone through my mind, the messing around if I did not have the use of a car.

A complaint to Betty (BCUHB) did not go down too well with office manager......

A Day at the Races

Oh dear !

Keep a look out for Lydia ( wardrobe malfunction )

Penyffordd Temperance Society would not be amused.

I have to admire the larger ladies................

In fact I have to admire them all for taking the effort.


The ladies going home and some who have had fighting ale.

General Election with regards Penyffordd

Here below are I hope (you need to put your post code in the box)  the candidates for Alyn and Deeside

For me uncontrolled immigration is a big issue.
There are too many people in this country.

There are too many people using NHS resources for free who have never
contributed to it.

Doctors queues are ridiculous.

Non Doms? Couldn't give a monkeys.

A very large prison to be built that I do not want.

Too many kids going to university building up debts.
University should not be for nearly everyone
Some courses are a joke.

Too much tax on car fuel.

The main parties take too much notice of vested interests ( lobby groups)

Windmills are a token energy solution. The electricity they produce is expensive.

Which set of jokers to vote for?

Or perhaps not bother.

Vehicle Fire

Daily Post Tweet

VEHICLE FIRE: North Wales Fire service is saying a car was deliberately set alight last night at
Pen y Ffordd, in Buckley. There is 50% damage to the car which was a VW Golf. One fire engine was sent from Buckley.

I'm sure there will be more about this in the Daily Post tomorrow.

Sources say it happened about 5am and was deliberate. The car is something of a tourist attraction. It must be all over social media. One young man in a car of 4 said "Glad it wasn't mine"

Speed News

NWP are launching a campaign against speeding bikers in N Wales. They wish to persuade them of the folly of their actions. Public relations exercise? I think so. A proportion of bikers come to N Wales to use it as a race track. Some have illegal exhausts which NWP completely ignore. I think it was last year when up near Llandegla on the A494. I couldn't understand why the bikers behind me were observing the speed limit and the Highway Code.

It became apparent later when looking at the Daily Post. About 20 bikers had been booked for speeding. This is the only language they understand NWP.
They are a nuisance and a menace. Our politicians all hide behind the settee on this one. Not one with any back bone.


More locally.
Drivers are speeding over the speed bumps at Chester Rd a major route to school. I think some are taking them at 40mph. My wife thinks not.

The profile of the static speed bump needs altering so that speeders are stopped. I don't think this will happen until a child or lollypop is run over.

If I was in charge of the village, through HGV would be banned and the only things flying through the village would be birds

Austerity Drive for Community Council
