  11. 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.
  12. On October 3rd, members of the Tredworth Facebook page received word that the Olympus was now 'back in the hands of the owners', and its restoration for use as a theatre venue was back on the cards. So watch this space.

  15. 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

  23. 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.
  24. 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?
