Bin News

Taxpayers to be asked whether they’d support reduction in bin collections.

Penymynydd Roundabout at 8.50 am



Not fit for purpose and hasn't been for a long time. Somewhere I always avoid first thing. Hope junction is also a right PIA that is hard to avoid.

Our representatives are failing us. All the way to the Welsh Assembly Government.

And in other news

Penymynydd and Dobshill fail to make the top 10.

Copied comment off Penyffordd Facebook.

Flintshire LDP Consultation

http://www.deeside.com/local-development-plan-consultation-set-to-launch-on-flintshire-blueprint-for-7000-new-homes/

The LDP will focus on delivering sustainable development in the County for a 15 year period 2015 to 2030

Possible 300 homes at Warren Hall that will nearly join Penymynydd to Broughton.
Buckley to be expanded to near Penymynydd.

There must be a reason.... if you look at all the red on the Deeside.com map then look at FCC map, nothing showing. Buckley looks to be doubling in size on the Deeside map.

A bad mix

1. 3 young girls on scooters on a narrow path aged 5 to 8. Hawarden Rd opposite the milly.

2. A driver behind me who seemed oblivious to the potential of the last young girl loosing control of scooter (she did).

3. A council who are content for the village to have clean roads for through traffic.

As an aside we have young boys hurting down hill passed our house on the path on scooters with no brakes at the 20+ mph

My hope is I'm not around to witness events.

I see Broughton have compulsory 20 mph zones.

Trouble across the fields

https://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/mum-threatens-take-daughter-out-16941834

We seem to have spawned a generation of school teachers that want to save the world. I see loads of young people on the likes of Twitter that do not have a clue. A lot of people do not know this but vegan diets are not good.

Vegetarian diets that include dairy and eggs are another matter.

Perhaps best teachers show children how to think and not what to think.

Flintshire Council the other day complaining they have a couple million pound shortfall yet waste money on climate change brain washing.

Bet they are big on diversity as well.

Penyffordd Wine Circle

Is no more.
Formally wound up last Saturday

There used to be a time when the Wine Circle would go to France visiting wine regions.
We were members for over 20 yrs.

 I used to get the Wine Circle to apply to Penyffordd Council for grants that were available every year to groups within the village.

Every year knocked back by Tom. I do not think any other groups were refused money. I think it had something to do with me being a member.

Sad that no other councillor ever objected.

Comments are open if I am wrong.

Chester Revenue Collecting

If you go to Chester in your car its best to avoid bus lanes which are now fitted with ANPR.
Camera takes your picture and you are sent a fine in the post. £30 or £60.

Over 2000 people have been caught so far.

To Hartsheath


To the north of Penyffordd district we have the Gladstone Estate. To the south we have Hartsheath. Spent a very pleasant afternoon there today. We were shown around many rooms that still feel as though its 18th century. Our tour guide had a very thorough knowledge of his ancestors. Quite a fascinating day. We were also allowed to tour the gardens which are extensive.


New school for new term at Penyffordd

New primary school, new term, new issues.

A bit more peaceful in Chester Rd.  Parents parking cars at the new school causing issues. One resident asked some children's parents if they would stand aside so she could drive car out and go to work. Received a mouthful for her trouble.

Front bumpers tend to help plus dashcam going to show idiots blocking drive.
Also helps with ID.

One hopes school authorities have got this parent marked for ASB.
