    Knowing how much each venue paid to be part of it I be surprised if it needed any public funding.

    Does anyone know when the Red Cow closed.

    2002, maybe early 2003.

    I understand that Wrexham is cheap compared to Manchester or London but that argument is not good enough.

    I paid £2.50 for 24 hours in Manchester City Centre a couple of weeks ago.

    The it’s time for all right minded motorists to get a nice set of bull-bars fitted and rid the roads of the unwashed, untaxed, uninsured, smug, law breaking, bad manered louts who hide under the name of ‘cyclists’.

    You have some deeply unpleasant issues going on.

    The original wording I saw just said “beers, lagers and ciders”. (Quite how lager isn’t classified as a beer there I’m not sure).

    Apart from what I think is the snobbery aspect – obviously only the riff raff would drink that – it just means that the intended people it’s targetting are just going to go to Lidl and get a bottle of Vodka or wine instead.

    Really grinds my gears.

    Maybe if the police weren’t so busy looking after big business’s interests (see the shoplifting article) they could possibly find time to wander around the communities and provide a presence so antisocial behaviour is less likely to happen.

    If Arriva want to prosecute under section 5 then they have to prove intent. If however, they prosecute under the Railway Bylaw section 18 then it’s a strict liability offence of having no ticket. The latter charge does not carry the threat of a criminal record.

    And at the moment, the payment requested is NOT a fine. Only a court can impose a fine. It’s more of an out of court settlement. The TOCs generally prefer this as they get to keep the money, if it goes to prosection then they don’t receive any proportion of the fine.

    The direct trains still exist (1 every two hours) but there’s currently engineering work between Wolverhampton and Birmingham so it’s easier to go via Chester.

    I work at a microbrewery on the estate and we haven’t had any problems with discoloured water. I’d be fuming if I had.

    My partner was watching out of the window this morning when the green bin was collected. After being emptied the operator threw the bin back towards the driveway, hit our car with it and scratched it.

    She’s not happy.

    Opening is still set for the 27th as far as I’m aware.

    Features an exclusive beer brewed by the local Sandstone Brewery too. ;)
