A Rant from Cllr David Williams in emails

Thursday night? Must be Red Lion night.  :)

Perhaps try  this below David?

Perhaps try this test David as well?

A Brief History of Dobshill

Dobshill - Dawbes Hill 1615, Dobs Hill 1785

Today Dobshill refers to the cross-roads where the road from Buckley crosses the road from Hawarden to Wrexham. But the hill called Dobshill is actually to the east of the cross-roads. Dawb or Dob or the surname Dobs is a common enough name that appears in Parish Registers.

Despite that we nothing about the particular man who gave his name to the hill.

National Grid ( I think) want to develop a power supply structure near Penyffordd Train Station. The development will house batteries in about 40 shipping containers. A planning application has been submitted to Flintshire County Council. The area to be developed is over 770 sq yds in area. Its proposed position is the other side of the railway from Penyfford village.

A55 Traffic Cams

Mobile Phone 4G O2 bottom of Penymynydd Rd/ Chester Rd now functioning

I noticed the other day I get 4G in the garden and some parts of the house. This new for us.

Wifi in our house is in my office. I've turned ours off as its situated in my office. Its akin to sitting in microwave cooker. ( well slightly)

Radio frequency affects humans at a cellular level, its not good for you. ie carrying your phone around all day in your pocket.

In USA technicians have to work on micro wave equipment which is turned on. The rates of leukemia and other cancers in these technicians is rising

Google Dr Jack Kruse and mobile phones for proof. He usually quotes scientific research. He has a Facebook page. He's well off the planet !

I'm trying to get Lisa to distance herself from her iphone when possible. Managed to persuade her not to keep it under her pillow at night !

New iphones deal with 5 times as much radio frequency............. not good.

We're going
I've been before.

The manufacture is largely computer controlled, the control room part of the tour last time I visited. I seem to remember one person can run the production over night. Much to a former Penyffordd Community Cllr's horror.

I'd like to go up the tower. They have a lift. Not sure if its on the menu though I think not. Previously they've allowed school children up there.

Here's my previous visit. Wife Lisa in the pics. Mark Cox ( General manager) also in the first few pics too. A lovely man. Now promoted elsewhere. Cllr Cindy Hinds also in the frame.

If you fancy going up the tower on your own.........
Nice view of Penyffordd / Penymynydd in the dark

Here's the BEST photos from the top of the tower.

New Penyffordd Post Office Review

We here weren't very happy when we found the post office was moving. I had an arrangement with Mary where I just handed over our daily parcels and paid twice a month. Also standing at the counter with one member of staff and me wanting 10 parcels processed a downer for those behind me in the queue :(  One of the other advantages I think was less bank charges for both of us. It was also 80 yards from our house.

Now I have to walk quarter of a mile..................

Opening times at the Spar are double those of the Post Office. We've opened an online account with the Post Office. We now process most of our parcels in house. I can even take parcels on Sundays. I think they are collected Monday though.

Penyffordd Facebook page members report a few downers. No staff on duty to do car tax. Can't put money into Natwest.

Natwest thing most probably Natwest's fault. With banks closing at a fast rate Government should force banks to make the Post Office bank friendly.

postscript. moving money between Santander and other banks seems an issue to.
