Just heard from one of 'em. They've concluded that trying to keep Ulverston special is a waste of time. Every town thinks its special, not just ulverston. SO they've decided all they can do is to campaign to keep it a "nice town", so there changing there name to Keep Ulverston a Nice Town.

Breaking News by early doors (Member 10235862) on 1-Apr-2015
Just heard from a very reliable source that the identity of the supermarket in the brewery will be......Booths. Due to falling sales at their current site, they have decided to replicate their Kendal town centre store and concentrate on the 'craft' type of food and wine with a large café bar which will also open at night.
The existing Booths store will be partly demolished and the remainder ma... more >>

    Welcome news, I hope it can now go ahead without further vindictive and cynical opposition that relied on nothing but nitpicking at legal definitions and alternative translation of the intended planning decision.

  • Re: Here we go by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 26-Mar-2015
    I will be disappointed if we don`t get a supermarket but if we don`t, and get the rumoured Wilkinsons, well, we will still be better off than we were when all we had was a derelict brewery. I don`t know how these things work but I assume that Robinsons have got permission to build a supermarket and so couldn`t, for instance, build a slaughterhouse instead?

  • Re: Here we go by early doors (Member 10235862) on 26-Mar-2015
    Hadn't heard any rumours at all . Wilkos would be better than nowt but can you see them building a 90 space underground car park ?
    Just my own view but I'd like to see a mixture like say Wilkos and Aldi and something else . Just to save us having to go Barrovia for every darn thing .

    Hang on to your hats lads, oostun is about to be catapulted into the twentyfirst century. What with a supermarket in the offing and the latest breathtaking promotion "B.I.D." now passed by an overwhelming vote of, er, forty percent we are destined for the fast track to fame and fortune. I wonder what happened to the last scheme, anyone remember the Ulverston Passport?

    Yeah right. KUS will find another loophole somewhere to pick at and get their way.

    Even if it does go through, it'll end up a "small and expensive version" of something. Still, better than a knackered brewery I suppose!

  • Re: Here we go by Cloud (Member 10266536) on 29-Mar-2015
    I mean I know it's supposedly a done deal now but they said that last time. They'll just keep poking around for holes and appealing, I'd have thought.

  • Re: Here we go by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 30-Mar-2015
    There could be a small matter of funding. Last time they blagged the money by getting legal aid, but the situation was less clear cut then. Now the vote for a supermarket is almost unanimous and perhaps the money for another appeal might not be so forthcoming. Perhaps someone with an understanding of the legal aid system can better inform us. Personally I can`t see the local small shopkeepers putt... more >>

The The Liar by zap (Member 10216554) on 20-Mar-2015
They're at it again. Not much in the great scheme of things but bloody annoying..they report today that there has been a fire on somewhere called "The Hoad". FFS, when I was a kid we never went for a walk on The Hoad, was always just "0ad"! Anyone been for a walk on The Birkrigg recently, or climbed The helvellyn. Ignorant wazzocks.

    ever notice how the liar lazily change 'carlisle' to 'cumbria' in stories to try to convince us they're local interest? the story about a carlisle deviant tossing himself off in a library now has no reference at all of where it actually happened apart from 'the city' because they have swapped the city with the county in the opening line without looking at the rest of the article. joke of a paper.

  • Re: The The Liar by zap (Member 10216554) on 25-Mar-2015
    Summat else they do to "localise" stuff is to use the phrase " 'cumbrians' are being asked to....." and it'll be a report about a national campaign, organised by somebody in London, which applies from Cornwall to Cumberland. Knobs.

    Its a war of attrition declared and waged solely by the class warriors, tree huggers, anarchists and plain old tosspots in Keep Ulverston Shite. They have to be delusional to believe that Ulverston is "special". They will simply keep on raising bogus objections, spurious "reasons" against a supermarket in the hope that the developers get fed up and move on. Twats, to a wazzock!

    Pickers saying the application is outrageous. They have every right to resubmit an amended application under the planning process. Just because one got knocked back it doesn't mean that your little fiefdom will remain exactly as it is in perpetuity.

    Oh I dunno E.D., the planning permission for a Tesco in the old Millets at Kendal went through and as far as I know the store is going ahead, so, hopefully the trend towards small convenience size stores and the continuing expansion of the value stores gives a bit of optimism.

    Carnforth has just got a new Aldi store. So that makes their tally a Tesco, a Co-op (both bigger than ours) a Booths and now aldi. Carnforth is smaller than Ulverston. The strategy of the town council, and traders, has been that if it stops shoppers travelling to Lancaster/Kendal and brings a few more into carnforth, then build the bloody thing. Eeeeh. Sod "special".

    Good job you don't live down t'pot. House 'd be fucking empty by now.

    .......down't pot ? what a fucking depressing phrase. More Sky dishes than teeth down there.

    Oh I dunno, Mr Scum sir. When they built them houses on the site of Dale Street School they were marketed as being "in the Lake District". Several folk had to be assisted by ambulance staff outside Poole Townsends window for cramps brought on by severe laughter.

    Oh I don`t know, if you allow your imagination to stretch a point the new sewage holding tank in Morecambe road can be construed as a lake. of sorts.

    I do hope that those poor folks that Zap mentioned went on to make a full recovery. This just shows what happens when you leave town planning to people with little command of Inglish and Jography.

    Dale Street School houses in the Lake District. What fucking bollocks is that? Lake District Peninsulas maybe, but not the District itself. Come to think of it, who thought up the lake district peninsulas anyway. Obviously some cunt who would benefit grately from having a peninsula shoved up his arse, sideways. Morecambe Bay peninsulas maybe. Fuck me! the Lake District doesn't start till Greenodd.... more >>

Season's Greetings by early doors (Member 10235862) on 24-Dec-2014
Compliments of the season to everyone . I shall be spending the afternoon in various hostelries before returning to the fireside. Mrs ED has threatened to withdraw certain privileges if I am as kettled as last year !

    Festive felicitations to one and all.I too will be taking ale in our quirky innes and taverns in the fervent hope that it will eventually anaesthetise me against the shitefest that is Xmas TV. A wassailing I will go........

    Very brave of you ED, the aforementioned alehouses and tavernes are no place for a god fearing soul on nights such as this. A night perusing the web for me. Merry Christmas to one and all, and a prosperous new year to the down and out under the bridges of Paris.

    Tonight I thought I'd try out some last minute XMAS shopping so at 6.59 I walked into Asda. The guy who was about to shut the door welcomed me in and said although they were closing they was no problem at all in me coming into the shop at such a late hour. Excellent customer service Asda! I proceeded to spend £40.69. Next year I am going to go for a last second attempt.

    I have just turned tail and walked out of a well known Ulv pub. On entering the first thing I came across wad a scabby arsed yob, mouthing off - with a tirade of foul language, a small bottle of Becks in hand. When will the landlords learn to get rid of these louts in favour of some serious punters. I had 80 quid in my pocket and that pub won't see a penny. As for the yob - fxxk off and crawl ... more >>
