A Belated Happy Xmas and all the best for the New Year

From me Colin.

2016 was a hell of year, but not for some.....

Village data on the village survey due out soon.

Challenges for Penyffordd District for 2017 and beyond.
To keep our area a village rather than an urban sprawl.

More Break ins of cars last night

On Social media
50 presents stolen.
At least 2 breakins last night
Used credit cards in Tesco's and Mcdonalds in Broughton
Police have good images on CCTV but will not release them........
Also know what car they are driving.
Something to do with what happens if they're caught and court appearance?
Human rights? They don't have any...........IMHO

Better not try our car, Charlie will sort them.
That is unless they're carrying chocolate or a lump of steak.....................

As pointed out on Facebook, if they can show alleged criminals on Crimewatch
why can't they release faces and car details to the local papers?

Mass Car Break In's on an Industrial Scale

Loads of cars broke into last night. Locked cars had their systems bypassed. Reported on Facebook.
Some people had left credit cards in their cars.

Quote -  PS 1337 Mavis Evans NWP

Hi residents of Penyffordd/Penymynydd just to keep you the loop when I left work tonight we had received reports of 13 vehicles that had been entered overnight. These cars had been parked at various addresses around Penyffordd and Penymynydd. Some vehicles were left open but some vehicles were locked and they had been entered by means unknown.
We have also had a report from a member of the public who's car wasn't entered. He has cctv and he has checked his camera and a male can be seen on his driveway at 2 am and the male was clearly looking into his car. That male has dropped some items which we have seized for forensic examination.
Some bank cards had also been stolen and have been used, enquiries are being made with banks to get the full locations so that we can get CCTV from the stores in order to catch these badies.
Please can I make an appeal that if you live in the affected areas or in any of the surrounding streets and you have CCTV then this is checked for during the night. I'm guessing that they were around for some time and they were using a car.
There will be extra patrols in the area but if you have any concerns don't hesitate to phone 101 or if you need an immediate response 999


Chester Rd has reverted into a trunk road

postscript: do it better ....

Big increase in traffic yesterday and this morning. Locals on Facebook say there are 4 way traffic lights on Penymynydd roundabout. duh!

I estimate we're seeing over 20 cars a minute and its not even a school day which vastly increases traffic.

How long are the traffic lights at Penymynydd roundabout going to be there?
Will vehicle users develop bad habits and use the village as a short cut in future?

Traffic Levels - Red stuff means stop I think. You can see the orange levels on Chester Rd.
Green marker is Lisa on the A55 at 9.15am not the time as marked on screen shot.

postscript: Where does traffic data come from? Been scratching my head over this. Some of it comes from your mobile.

When you choose to enable Google Maps with My Location, your phone sends anonymous bits of data back to Google describing how fast you're moving. When we combine your speed with the speed of other phones on the road, across thousands of phones moving around a city at any given time, we can get a pretty good picture of live traffic conditions. We continuously combine this data and send it back to you for free in the Google Maps traffic layers. It takes almost zero effort on your part — just turn on Google Maps for mobile before starting your car — and the more people that participate, the better the resulting traffic reports get for everybody.

Motorists stuck for hours yesterday teatime onwards due to a multiple crash. Cars had to turn around and get off at the previous junction ( under police direction) as both carriageways were shut.

Penyffordd Council Noticeboard not updated for 4 months...........

Those without internet up "s" creek on council activities.
Cllr Cindy Hinds' newsletter being the exception.

I'm under the impression the keys are lost for the notice board.
Has this happened on purpose?

A Roman Fort to be built at Hope

It would be fair to say the Romans did not treat the Welsh very well. A few must be turning  in their graves.

A bit like building something to honour  the enemy of World War II ?

Some Words about the WAG

Bonfire Night Revisited

Just had a look through County Councillor Cindy Hinds' news letter. As mentioned by Cindy there was an awful lot of green garden waste.

Volunteers were burning off excess material before the bonfire and the day after Sunday. One house on Chester Rd was subject to a 2 day barrage of toxic smoke. Lots of the garden waste was from Landscape companies. One client who got turned away was trying to dump a cooker, metal gate and washing machine........

Next year there is going to be a system to control "contributions" for the bonfire. This will be challenging with the road next to the institute field handy for throwing over contributions........

Good News for Chester Rd and Penymynydd Rd

The new single primary school is to be built at Abbott's Lane. Construction planned to start Jan 2018.
Less traffic and less speeding parents entering Penymynydd Rd on 2 wheels. I nearly got "took out" by a parent mounting the path outside the school the other day.

Less traffic first thing. Just speeding cars and through lorries to be dealt with. The Rat Run.

Fiercer bumps perhaps for the  4 x 4 's. Through traffic banned from village. Lorries banned from the village. After all we have a bypass.
