Got something to say? / Chaos Monday morning!
March 24, 2014, 12:00:57 pm
Rumours of A34 bother have caused jams all through Newbury today(am) Anyone shed any light as to why?

Got something to say? / Banks and PPI
February 03, 2014, 04:21:02 pm
Millions of pounds are put by to pay claimants for this PPI 'scam'....Why don't they just pay it back to the customers they have ripped off,they have records..why give all this work(money) to solicitors?

Got something to say? / Chaos on police roundabout
February 02, 2014, 02:09:29 pm
The synchronisation of the lights on this roundabout , weekend have caused huge tailbacks on an otherwise quiet time. Saturday,the Bear lane exit was 3 cars per session....Sunday it was 12/4,which is great if you ain't on the ring road !

Got something to say? / Table Tennis demise
January 05, 2014, 08:01:10 pm
As a lad,I played the noble game,practiced till good enough to make junior county team....and Newbury seniors.....some trophies picked up along the way,Sterling Cables Open....Thatcham ,Kennet school tourneys...and at that time, 8 leagues of 12 teams! Now,it is just 3 leagues,and not a single club from Newbury to be seen! Thatcham has still kept the faith,with several teams,young and not so young! Wessex social club was a multi team club,but Waitrose crushed them,and they dropped the game to accommodate golf. All gone,now...Lloyds...Newbury Community Centre...Plentys...GPO....Guildhall....Methodist church....Boys Club....and it's still called  NEWBURY ( and district) TABLETENNIS LEAGUE.

Got something to say? / West st parking
December 23, 2013, 06:30:07 pm
Correct me if I'm wrong( there's an invitation) but the " permit holders only " bay on West st,opposite Macs is a nice little earner for WBC,as permit holders rarely use it,and the snooker club members,and guests continually suffer.

Got something to say? / Short cut..(illegal)
December 05, 2013, 11:05:35 am
Here's a trick.....if you are in Parkway ,and need to get to the station,or south of town,just drive through the car park to Northbrook st,turn left over the bridge to Market place,and save going all round the ring road .....like the motorist who nearly knocked my wife over yesterday! Needs some sort of barrier by Boots to stop this.
