20mph limit by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 19-Jan-2017
Am I the only one who thinks this is a case of if it ain`t broke don`t fix it ? I see a stretch of the 590 is also included, our " bypass" where you will be lucky to do 10mph most of the time. I`m all for accident prevention but this is another example of pickers wasting our money. Perhaps they just want peace and quiet whilst snoozing away in the posh new office, (aka the old bogs)   
  • Re: 20mph limit by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Jan-2017
    I'm pretty sure the A590 is not included even though it's shown on the plan. The HA wouldn't approve it anyway. The roads in town are a different matter but who is going to enforce the 20mph limit ? Nobody.
    I doubt it would work without a few speed bumps though. Probably never happen anyway ,this is Ulverston remember.

Wtf by zap (Member 10216554) on 15-Jan-2017
Tne red cross says our health service equates to a "humanitarian crisis". Cancer procedures, they say, are being cancelled/postponed. Yet 13 billions are being sent abroad. Madness, utter 100% insanity. Just saying

Robinsons by early doors (Member 10235862) on 9-Jan-2017
Now there's a surprise. Only about 4 years after opening,Robinsons are closing their depot at Backbarrow due to falling demand. Brew some decent beer then !
And still no sign of any movement at the old brewery ?
  
  • Re: Robinsons by zap (Member 10216554) on 13-Jan-2017
    After much discussion in our quaint tavernes..the consensus is with you ED. I.E. if Robinsons brewed half decent beer then demand might be higher! Several pubs in town now offer a selection of excellent beers which Robinsons just can't compete with.

  • Re: Robinsons by early doors (Member 10235862) on 13-Jan-2017
    Aye zap ,there is some cracking beer around these days.

Season's greetings by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Dec-2016
Compliments of the season to all worthy gentlemen of this parish ,though we seem to be dwindling in numbers.
Weather permitting ,Mrs ED and I may venture forth later to a few selected inns. Speaking of which ,the number of acceptable hostelries has also dwindled .Farmers ,Rose ,Kings and Mill is about it these days .

  • Re: Glaxo by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Dec-2016
    I very much doubt it. The supermarket has been ''delayed '' since before GSK was announced in the first place. Premier Inn know they would get decent occupancy rates even without the GSK contractors.
    I'll bet you we get a Premier Inn before any supermarket though.

  • Re: ignorant twats by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 7-Dec-2016
    Can`t help thinking they are polishing a turd. No amount of traffic lights, roundabouts, filters, pinch points or speed limits will make correct a flawed decision. The fact is ulverston now has a ludicrous "bypass" that goes right through the town.

  • Re: ignorant twats by early doors (Member 10235862) on 7-Dec-2016
    We've had said 'bypass ' for nearly 50 years mate.

  • Re: ignorant twats by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 8-Dec-2016
    it must be due for replacement then, just think how much traffic has increased in the last fifty years, installing new central reservations etc will not make it any better.

  • Re: ignorant twats by early doors (Member 10235862) on 8-Dec-2016
    Aye RR.
    Biggest mistake in the history of Ooston. Back in the 60's the people with influence thought a bypass would ruin the town. In fact it would have made it.
    Now much of the land on the old bypass route has been built over.

Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 18-Nov-2016
To the bistro last night for the new chef`s official introduction evening. Really good night, food was excellent, staff pleasant and attentive and place nearly full. Didn`t see many of our local hoi polloi though, the likes of pickers etc were no show. Thanks for the support feller.

    Bit hard to ignore him when he`s wearing his gay hussar outfit, not keen on these events mesen, too much money leaves town. I know most of the shopkeepers complain about takings being down. The ginger one excepted of course.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 24-Nov-2016
    Am with you on that RR. I'd guess the bulk of the money spent this weekend will leave the town. Even in the pubs the money spent on old and filthy will end up in Stockport or elsewhere.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Nov-2016
    ........and if the money stayed in town would it end up in OUR pockets ? There's nothing stopping any local trader from renting a stall and if our local shops can't make money from an extra 10,000 people they should pack up.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 24-Nov-2016
    Yeah but our shopkeepers are there all year round, open in foul weather, knowing that takings will be thin. The stallholders appear like vultures, clean up then bugger off back to Chorlton cum Hardy or wherever.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Nov-2016
    Not sure what point you're trying to make. If ,as you say ,shop takings are down when 1000's of extra people are in town the shopkeepers are failing to take advantage .
    I'll bet all the pubs and caffs do well ,plus Tesco , Co-op ,Greggs etc. Which local shops do you mean ?

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Nov-2016
    I don't have the figures so can only guess that the vast majority of tomorrow's throng won't be here to get their hair done, buy a house or otherwise contribute to the "local" economy. I just think that the whole thing is delusional, vis a vis the concept that Ulverston is "thriving", its only 2 days of hustle and bustle, there's another 363 to be considered.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Nov-2016
    Just voicing an alternative view. There's another view, very prevalent in town, that if you dare question the desirability/value of the various festivals then you are some sort of spoil sport! If pressed i'd have to say that the Dickfest is probably the best festival. I just don't get the endlessly repeated mantra that its "good for the town".

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Nov-2016
    Fair enough old lad and I may say the Dickens is the only one I like - can't stand lantern ,flag etc. and the carnival is ruined by pissheads.
    It's a pity the market has declined so much ,it used to bring people in weekly. Maybe some of this weekend's traders could be persuaded to come more often if they got incentives ?

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Nov-2016
    What happened first, the customers stopped using the market or the stallholders stopped coming? It simply had it`s day if you ask me. What do you actually miss about the market? Goods are now available seven days a week, and damn near round the clock. I might just have a look round tomorrow and do a bit of a census, I think I can confidently predict my dosh will remain in my pocket.

  • Re: Ford Park Bistro by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Nov-2016
    What I miss is that the market gave a bit of buzz to the town and some stallholders were characters. Had it's day probably ,as you say . The town is now just a feeding station and dormitory now. Even house prices in the better parts of Barrovia are overtaking Ulverston now.

A590 by early doors (Member 10235862) on 14-Nov-2016
Anyone looking forward to the impending chaos ?
Works starts next week on Quebec St. junction ,followed by Lowfield Bridge the week after. The queue from Lindal will probably reach Ulverston and Tank Square will be gridlocked .

    The traffic lights at Quebec St. and NL Road will assist people turning out onto A590 but will inevitably delay traffic on the main road. I think it's quite a good idea to SLOW the traffic through town . HGV's charging down County Road is quite worrying at times.
    The bypass could and should have been built in the 60's and most of us know that two alternatives were presented . The Ulverston busin... more >>

    I was thinking about the Dellow just this morning, wondering if he was still with us.

FORD PARK SUPER HOMES by Bardsea Boy (Member 10303900) on 5-Nov-2016
The Mail informs us that the eight houses being built at Ford Park have more than 100 potential buyers, which is very surprising seeing the slow pace of the Furness property market. The developer appears to be insisting that sales will only be made to purchasers who have no property to sell.
I think fingers good be burnt with this stance unless they are in bed with a housing association.

    You can't reserve a house unless you're own property is sold or you have a sale date. It's standard on small new developments. How else could the seller choose between potential buyers ?
    Housing associations ? are you serious ?

    Had lunch at ford park today. I couldn`t help wondering, as I passed those houses, if any more will be built there. Such an easy way to raise revenue to keep the park going, much easier than recruiting another thousand members which is the current stratagem.

    I'm sorry to say you're right. It's inevitable more land will be taken for housing in the future. There can't be any objections on pure planning grounds.

Canal totems by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 31-Oct-2016
Very good but will they also clean up the dog shit?   
  • Re: Canal totems by early doors (Member 10235862) on 31-Oct-2016
    Who is they ? the canal trust or the dog owners . It needs a few people t.o be fined

  • Re: Canal totems by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 31-Oct-2016
    What I mean is this , it`s all very well erecting rusty sheets of steel in the name of art but the single biggest issue that would enhance the canal amenities would be a determined drive to eradicate the dog fouling. Each end of the canal is plastered with the stuff, illustrates perfectly the theory that a dog craps within fifty yards of getting out of the car. How this is achieved is anyone`s gue... more >>

    .....we agree it needs enforcing but our local authorities don't do enforcement . Whether it's traffic speeds ,parking ,selling cars on the street or dogshit.

    Speaking of local authority, did the plan to convert the bogs into a den for UTC get passed? bigger things than that have been passed in those bogs! Can`t think of a more fitting home for them, pity they didn`t pay for it out of their own pockets though.

Who is the cock... by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 24-Oct-2016
...In Ulverston who is shining a laser pen at light aircraft? Are you stark raving mad? If you succeed in blinding the pilot the plane could be brought down, might even crash onto you and yours.
