  1. Hi Already bid on the coin. Love a bit of history! Thanks Paul Harries PS Going to have to do clear out as well soon, if I find a place to move to!
  2. Hi Nearing that time of year again. Looking forward to a repeat of last year and solving my 'steak envy' of that mammoth gammon! Brother in law suggests there is an alternative in a steak house at the quays. Nah - my (small) NHS pension just started coming in (only have to be 60), so I'll go for the 1st option. (Assuming my brother in law gets us there)! Thanks Paul Harries
  3. Hi A big congrats to both new councillors and old. Many of whom I've met before at local meetings Paul Harries
  4. Hi What was that all about? How's the complaint re Sainsbury crossing going, JK? Think it might be coming to a time where another public question needs to be asked. If only to get it formally reported. Good Luck!! Paul Harries
  5. Hi JK as arrogant as ever., No wonder he is hated by so many in the area. He doesn't know what I've done - so everything he says should be considered wishful thinking or just plain lies. Many will think the latter. Same old JK, same old record. I know what I've done, and it's no business of JK. At least I wasn't banned from any community meetings. I was just commenting on the weather and we should look out for one another. Obviously JK doesn't care any more. Seems it's got better today. Hope it lasts. Thanks Paul Harries
  6. Hi Typical JK. I point out a problem and ask people to look out for each other during these difficult times. All he worries about is making political or personal jibes. Not worrying that the landlord has legal duties, but the tenant is at fault for not getting them enforced. How you faring Joe? Hope others aren't treating your family with special needs with same disdain. As I said before - keep a lookout for those in need around you. Giving them a helping hand is far more useful than trying to play politics. Paul Harries

  8. Hi This Siberian weather not doing us much good. Needed to go out yesterday, just up the road the top up my electric. But when I opened the door saw that the pavement was too icy to venture outside. (I walk with a quad stick after the stroke). Hopefully it will be better later today. (My doorbell/intercom hasn't worked in the 11 years I've been here, so can't get anything delivered). If you know of any elderly or disabled people near you, might be a good idea the check they're OK. I'm just managing with an expensive oil radiator to warm just the one room, some older people might not be able to. Thanks Paul Harries
  9. Hi Thanks for that. Still intend going to the Glasshouse in June for my birthday, but might try this other place out another time. Thanks again Paul Harries
  10. Hi If I had the means to go I would. I love aircraft, having served in RAF for 6 years. Looks like everyone's in for a real treat! Thanks Paul Harries
  11. Hi Took the family for a meal here yesterday. Not so impressed. For: 1) Massive choice in menu. 2) Excellent starters. Against 1) My steak was bit gristly 2) No whipped cream for my sister's luxury hot chocolate. May be that they had a bad day with my steak. My brother in law loved his black pudding starter and the burgers looked great.. I just have better memories of the Glasshouse, Mill Hill that Eddie showed me. Will return to Glasshouse for my birthday in June. Paul Harries
  12. Hi Back in the day we used to be able to by "Lardy" cakes (whatever they were called) which were the size of dinner plates. Now we're reduced to buying smaller portions from Jane's Pantry in King's square. (Though they are very nice)! Thanks Paul Harries
  13. Hi Season's Greetings to everyone here. Been a year now since my stroke, so hoping everyone has an even better 2018 than 2017! Best wishes to you all, wherever you are Paul Harries
  14. Hi Seems some beavers to be reintroduced near Lydbrook to prevent flooding. A natural answer to a problem? " A plan to release beavers into the Forest of Dean has been approved by the government. Two adult beavers and two kits will be released into a 6.5 hectare enclosure near Lydbrook. It's hoped the four animals will help prevent flooding in the area by improving biodiversity and building dams and ponds. They are expected to be released into the enclosure in the spring.
  15. Hi I spoke about it in open council meeting 27th Sept 2012, item 31.9 on agenda: 31.9 Mr Paul Harries asked the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Culture the following questions: 1. Now that the plans for India House to be demolished/rebuilt have gone ahead, what, if any plans has the Council taken to assess the Environmental Impact Statement and Risk Assessment whilst the demolition/rebuilding is going on? Thinking specifically of the debris & dust. Plus the security implications of the site. 2. What, if any plans has the Council made re the major traffic disruption this development will cause whilst the work is going on. There is a blind junction, two bus stops and a police station adjacent to the site. All at risk from large commercial plant vehicles. Does the council plan to close this busy access road to Gloucester? 3. Once the site has been developed, will the council build a pedestrian crossing by the supermarket, to allow young families, the elderly & disabled to cross safely? I remind members of the blind junction, two bus stops & police station. 4. Whilst demolition/construction work is going on, will the pavement be affected? Specifically will the existing phone booth & letter box be removed to allow access for the large plant vehicles? The answer to part 3 below (Couldn't cut'n paste it, sorry). When I rang up for clarification they said since there would be no increase in footfall there was no need for a crossing. (I think they just wanted to rush the application through and didn't want to delay it with a revised application). Thanks Paul Harries letter_to_mr_harries_18102012.pdf
