Lowther van sales by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 14-Aug-2017
Not a lot of stock on the yard these days, wonder if he is packing it in. Probably follow Gillam`s example and build on the site, squeeze a few on the yard and a few more once the garage is demolished   
  • Re: Lowther van sales by early doors (Member 10235862) on 14-Aug-2017
    aye, ditto for Tarnside Garage

    We wouldn`t have smashed it to bits though. Brain dead low life scum, hopefully LoKi will know most of us appreciate his efforts to add quirk to the special town, just wish dear old Geoff was still with us, he would have had something to say about it. Probably have got the glue pot out and fixed it as well.

    Had a laugh at the LoKi outside the tsb, had a sign on it that said something like "banker with 4 homes needs money for a pool", it was holding a up out. Already had about two quid in it. Wonder if it will still be there in the morning?

Booths in't shit... by Fray Bentos (Member 10255495) on 31-Jul-2017
It would appear that Booths has struggled to pay up on it's not inconsiderable debts and its bankers have called in a team to independently review its books which may in turn lead to said bankers taking over the business. Booths turned a £6 million plus profit last year into a £2million loss this year. CEO sacked in May and Booths family members said to be having to cough up millions to keep the... more >>   
  • Re: Booths in't shit... by early doors (Member 10235862) on 31-Jul-2017
    You may want to check your facts FB. Booths LOST £6.3m compared to a £1.1m PROFIT the previous year. Chris Dee the CEO was not sacked but left by mutual consent after 22 years.
    Nevertheless I dislike Booths for various reasons and wish they would sell the Ulverston branch to Sainsburys or Aldi or whoever. Booths own the whole site though including bthe other units.

  • Re: Booths in't shit... by Fray Bentos (Member 10255495) on 31-Jul-2017

M&S / ALDI by early doors (Member 10235862) on 29-Jul-2017
According to the Mail ,plans afoot for both Aldi and M%S at the 'blue light hub '. Surely this would clog up the access and parking for our boys in blue ?
Would be handy for our friend from Tres Ponts though.

    I'm also in favour of Aldi and/or M&S coming in . But I thought the whole idea of the new hub was to give speedy access to the A590 /If the site is clogged with parked cars etc. how does that work ?

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by early doors (Member 10235862) on 29-Jul-2017
    To be honest I'd rather have seen M&S go in New market St. which I was told a while ago. Aldi on the brewery site seems to have died a death too.

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by zap (Member 10216554) on 29-Jul-2017
    Yes, town centre and/or brewery site would be better. Also yet another possible use for the eyesore that is Glynis House.

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-Jul-2017
    It does look as though no one is interested in opening large businesses in the town centre, I suppose big supermarkets have to have car parks and as far as the bird is concerned, it looks as if Robinsons are just prepared to let it decay, hope that suits pickers

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by zap (Member 10216554) on 29-Jul-2017
    M&S are proposing just a "food hall". Sainsbury's in Lancaster have an "express" store, mainly food, up by the Infirmary, no parking facilities. They also have a similar shop on Fishergate, Preston, again..no parking.

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by early doors (Member 10235862) on 29-Jul-2017
    Typical of Robinsons to let a valuable site stagnate when every other sq.ft. of Ulverston is being developed.

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 29-Jul-2017
    Most of the time I toddle along to the Co-op but if I want more than a bag full of stuff I jump in the car and usually head for Aldi or Dalton Co-op. It`s just disappointing after I went to the newly extended Morecambe Lidl that we have to travel so far to get to a value supermarket. Dunno if my old legs will carry me as far as the Beehive, especially as there isn`t a drink in it.

  • Re: M&S / ALDI by zap (Member 10216554) on 29-Jul-2017

The collision has been referred to the Constabulary's Professional Standards Department.
Police car/driver involved?

  • Re: on the run by early doors (Member 10235862) on 27-Jul-2017
    it's been referred because the driver was being pursued by police.

    Police have faced criticism from some members of the public who questioned why the fugitive is still on the loose.

    Superintendent Rob O’Connor, in charge of policing in South Cumbria, said: "Whilst I am sure the majority of people fully understand why we cannot divulge the details of the tactics involved – to do so would risk compromising the on-going work being carried out.

    Went to Lidl Morecambe yesterday, first time since the expansion was carried out. Place was spotlessly clean and tidy with more space. By coincidence I purchased a focaccia to eat on the way home. Bit disappointed but it was cold, perhaps if it had been hot it might have been better. Should have got pie and chips on the prom.

GSK. by Fray Bentos (Member 10255495) on 19-Jul-2017
Oh fuck...   
  • Re: GSK. by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 19-Jul-2017
    Didn`t see that coming. It will have quite a knock on effect for other plans, like housing and the sports facility. It isn`t necessarily the end though, if a buyer is found and I`m thinking China here, then it could be a good thing. There has to be more than churning out off patent Cephalosporins though, the money is in new entities that are patent protected.

  • Re: GSK. by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 19-Jul-2017
    Just recently there have been some houses breaking through the 200k mark. Wonder if the prices will drop to a saner level with potentially fewer buyers, or will oostun still be regarded as a good place to live. Perhaps it is just a return to how things were back in the mid 60`s when Glaxo (ulverston) was pretty much a one string bow.

  • Re: GSK. by early doors (Member 10235862) on 19-Jul-2017
    breaking through £200k ? You'll pay more than that for a decent gaff in Barrovia let alone the festival town. My nephew just paid £350k for a rather mundane detached in Hawcoat.

  • Re: GSK. by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 20-Jul-2017
    I mean houses that were iro 175k not too long ago.

  • Re: GSK. by early doors (Member 10235862) on 20-Jul-2017
    Demand or perceived demand pushes prices up ,sellers get greedy and estate agents encourage it. The GSK news should calm things down but Ulverston remains a desirable place to live. Will all the planned new housing now go ahead ? I wish they would build an estate of cheaper houses that people could more readily afford. Maybe just 2-beds for starters ,they all seem to build 4/5 beds now.

  • Re: GSK. by Chris Allonby (Member 10192613) on 20-Jul-2017
    What does Glaxo do for Ulverston in the 21st century? When I worked there in the 70s and 80s I think at one point there were 2000 people on site. What is it now - 10% of that? Is it even the town's biggest employer? They state the recent decision is nothing to do with Brexit; maybe not, who knows? One thing is for sure though: Brexit won't make it easier to sell the plant - quite the opposite.

  • Re: GSK. by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 21-Jul-2017
    Oh I don`t know, the motel is going ahead and I guess someone will buy Glaxo, as Chris pointed out the workforce at Glaxo has dwindled away since the heady days when there was 2,000 traveling down North Lonsdale road. Wasn`t one of the other factories sold off a few years ago? Cambois was it?

  • Re: GSK. by early doors (Member 10235862) on 21-Jul-2017

    Am I missing something ? If Glaxo closes about 300 jobs will be lost. Now according t`liar 1000 new homes that were to be built or were said to be required will not be built. Who was going to buy them? can`t be Glaxo staff, well paid as they are they still couldn`t afford 3 each. I think we can all turn over and go back to sleep.

    I think there's a good case for merging a lot of these "festivals". Most of em appeal only to a niche audience anyway. Merge the Fine Fest, Furness Tradition and Printfest. Merge Carnival Day and the Beer Festival, thus reducing inconvenience and botheration to just one day.

    Um, well, we are a lake district peninsular, the brown signs on the A590 say it is so. I suppose it depends on whether you are buying a house or selling one. One of the stipulations was that remote villages had to have a shop that sold groceries and household requisites, not just kendal mint cake and sticky toffee pudding. How are they going to make that happen then?

    Piffling amount when you consider that most of those 55 will be issued to over-stayers on legit car parks.saw a van yesterday parked on King St outside that junk shop half on/half off the pavement. A blueworks bus had a helluva job getting past.

  • Re: parking by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 25-Jun-2017
    The selfishness of some drivers knows no bounds. Remember that woman that blocked King street with her car while she went to get her hair done? When I lived up on the reservation it never ceased to amaze me when drivers pulled up across driveways and parked there despite the street being empty. They would then proceed to walk to the house they were visiting, usually a good distance away.

  • Re: parking by early doors (Member 10235862) on 25-Jun-2017
    zap ,the car parks are still SLDC territory. CCC do the streets but only turn up a few hours a week.
    I'm not in favour of over-zealous traffic wardens but Ulverston needs a blitz to get people onside. The town really needs it's own dedicated warden.

    The guy that owns the flower shop persistently parks all day in a restricted area, he gets fined now and again but just shrugs it off, cheap parking as far as he is concerned. Should be clamped or towed away.

    Hilarious that they are now proposing parking meters . They can't even enforce the existing regs.

    I rather feel the Daily Arsewipe may be a good title!

    The mail will die out when the older generation pop their clogs. Young people don't buy papers. It might end up a freesheet.

croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 16-Jun-2017
What sort of chemicals, and which house?   
  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 16-Jun-2017
    Bungalow in Weston Avenue near corner jefferson Drive is all we know.

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by zap (Member 10216554) on 16-Jun-2017
    Eh?

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    It`s no good Zap, you are just going to have to look on the liar website to keep up, no a pleasant prospect I know, but it has to be done in the name of information acquisition.

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Jun-2017
    Can't seem to navigate around said website today . Has it been encrypted or summat ?

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    It`s all accessible on my laptop, the only annoyance is the begging letter that pops up requesting donations to a rich press baron. Anyhoo, a house on Weston Ave. has been found to have large amounts of chemicals in it, the chemicals required to make drugs apparently so the police from Manchester (naturally) have been summoned to remove the hazardous stuff. (so they can make their own drugs?)

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 17-Jun-2017
    P.S. There`s a bit about it on the Wezzie Gazette website as well. (mebbe you have been blocked as an undesirable !)

  • Re: croftlands acid house? by early doors (Member 10235862) on 17-Jun-2017
    the Mail home page seems to load differently now ,I can use it on IE but not on Chrome . Used to be the other way round. Gazette no problem.

    Haha, he nearly blew himself up. Reminds me of my attempt to produce, er, substances in the kitchen long long ago. Mixing various crystals and dissolving them in a solvent over the kitchen stove, then evaporating off the solvent to finish up with product A. The solvent was acetone. Dunno why it didn`t end in tears.

So, would you sell your boat while you still could and pay for treatment or expect others to donate via a crowdfunding event?   
  • Re: going deaf by ilikeeatingthings (Member 10161876) on 5-Jun-2017
    Can the NHS not fund it?

  • Re: going deaf by redneck rampage (Member 10241019) on 13-Jun-2017
    I wouldn`t have thought either the implants or a state of the art high tech hearing aid would be available on the nhs, and he knows it, hence the funding appeal.

heard that some of ralph spours' cocktail crew started trouble in town and got put on barwatch. and that chattaway has been serving said barwatch ruffians. naughty naughty. can't have one rule for your mates and another for everyone else and still claim to be a respectable business owner.   
  • Re: the spours crew by early doors (Member 10235862) on 2-Jun-2017
    Who gives a shit ? No idea who these cocktail crew are anyway.

  • Re: the spours crew by blueherring (Member 10198877) on 3-Jun-2017
    other pub owners who are part of barwatch and don't serve their own banned mates because they respect the scheme? seems like a dick move to me.

  • Re: the spours crew by early doors (Member 10235862) on 3-Jun-2017
    yes BH I was being flippant of course . But it's up to the publicans to sort it out themselves. I no longer get involved in pub arguments and I really don't give a shit anymore. Cheers !
