  4. Hello all ,, David here A questionable arrangement to assemble an Aldi store, nursery and places of business on the edge of Cheltenham has been rejected for the second time. The real improvement was intended to be based off Grovefield Way, close to the Arle Court Roundabout, yet individuals from Cheltenham Borough Council's arranging board of trustees rejected its application in light of the fact that German markdown store Aldi would start more movement and contamination than the streets could deal with. Individuals from the advisory group respected the proposition to acquire more places of business into Cheltenham in the wake of hearing the town is shy of locales for more employments.

  9. Coln St Aldwyns Choir and friends are performing a programme of music and words as part of a Cirencester-wide festival to mark the centenary of the Armistice at the end of the Great War on 11th November 1918. The concert looks at the sacrifices made by soldiers and civilians on both sides of that conflict but, more importantly, celebrates the coming of peace after five years of bitter conflict and the loss of millions of lives. Proceeds from the concert will go to local medical charity Cobalt to support the research and diagnostic work it carries out into cancer and dementia. Proceeds will also go to the Royal British Legion as part of their annual Poppy appeal that continues to provide support for servicemen and women in need of help and tackle the difficulties experienced by those who have been casualties of military service. The concert starts at 7.30pm on 2nd November in Cirencester Parish Church, Market Place, GL7 2NX. Tickets are priced at £25 and £15 (restricted view), and are available through the Coln St Aldwyns Choir website at or at Coln Stores, Main St, Coln St Aldwyns, GL7 5AN tel; 01285 750294

  17. I am in the process of preparing a book titled ‘Lost Gloucester’. It is intended to show a wide range of scenes of a way of life around the city from the last 100 or so years that has disappeared, including buildings, people, street scenes, transport, parks, teams, events, leisure etc. If anyone has any photos that they think may be suitable to include in the book, and would be willing to lend them to me for a couple of days so I could copy them, I would be very grateful. All photos used will be credited with the photographer’s name.
  18. Is anyone in charge of dealing with spam now? So, not long after my post last November, the trees were planted. Near the end of the long hot spell, though, I noticed that they appeared, if not dead, close to death. Newly planted trees have to be watered every day for the first two weeks, then every week for a year. Twice a week in hot weather, as I recall a previous search revealing. I doubt these trees were watered at all during the long heat, if ever, so I'll be very surprised if they don't need replacing, by the people who had an obligation to care for them. Or did they think planting the trees was the end of their commitment?

  22. Lots of nice wooden chimes about
  23. Recently, I went t visit my cousin. She has a home garden which is small and yet beautiful. Because apart from the flowers and grass, she decorated it with the wind chimes, fairy lights etc. So the idea of hanging the wind chime hit me hard. And I am also thinking of hanging a beautiful yet melodious sound making wind chime in my garden. So what kind of wind chime should I consider to hang in my garden as I don't want it to be more fancy, Just a simple and beautiful wind chime?

Tickets are available now at August bank holiday weekend will see over 4000 punters arrive at the 2018 Frocester Beer Festival for one of the most eagerly anticipated booze ups of the year. While the beer remains the focal point for the weekend, the main reason people keep coming back year after year is for the fantastic atmosphere and great music. Festivalgoers appreciate that volunteers run the event and that its main purpose is to raise funds for good causes. This seems to bring out the best in everyone and the event is renowned for being a chilled environment to enjoy a pint, or quite a few more! The afternoons are very family friendly and children are welcome to enjoy the fun too. This will be the 39th festival and there will be quite a number who will have been to every event.

The beers to be showcased at the festival are still to be finalised but recent favourites have been Hal’s Ales Black Jack Gloucestershire Marble Beers Manchester Bitter Manchester Harviestoun Schiehallion Clackmannanshire Kinver Brewery Noble 600 Staffordshire Purple Moose Brewery Glaslyn Ale Gwynedd It was recognised some time ago, however, that people wanted a wider range of drinks. Cider has increased hugely in popularity and over 35 different cider and perries will be on offer. Pimms was a new venture last year, which proved a massive success, and this has been added to the new Bubbles Bar offering prosecco and cava alongside the ever-popular wine stall. Some people will be designated driver and the range of soft drinks will be widened alongside the Mmm coffee stall which will be open all day. There will be a wide range of food outlets to suit all tastes and preferences. This year’s offering includes pizza, corn on the cob and curries as well as pastries and pancakes.

There is an opportunity to buy a branded 2018 tankard with all profits going to Meningitis Now based in Stroud. These need to be ordered by June 30th. Finally, live music is a key element in creating the unique atmosphere at FBF. Local bands and artists will play throughout both days on the main stage and chill out zone. The headline acts this year are El Toro and Firefly. Frocester Beer Festival runs from Friday August 24th to Saturday August 25h at Frocester Cricket Club. Tickets are available now at
  25. Does anyone know if any bombs landed in Park Road Gloucester. I have been researching Family History and my Grandparents lived at 11 Park Road, now deceased. No's 9 and 11 have now gone together with the back-to-back houses at the rear, as shown on a 1914 OS map. I assume that they were either bombed in WW2 or perhaps demolished due to being unsuitable. There is now a Temple type building on the plot which displays a IOGT (Independent Order of Good Templars) emblem over the upper window. Any information would be very helpful. Roger
  26. This years event will take place on Sunday, September 9 at the Frampton Court Estate in Frampton on Severn between 9am and 6pm.

  27. Locals will know that Triangle Radio stopped broadcasting in February. According to their web site a new station , Dean Radio will launch from Cinderford on August Bank Holiday 2018. Read More
  28. Another no show, and a kick in the teeth to Tredworth residents.
  29. It's happening tomorrow, at 10:30am, and advertised nowhere. Though I suppose if residents could go a whole year not knowing (nor caring?) when or if meetings were happening, it's no big deal if Tony Ward doesn't want them to know. It won't stop him complaining about apathy, but we know how he feels about anyone taking an interest...
