  1. Well grey man - there you have it - if you are a journal;ist yourself feel free to submit some investigative articles in your name (which I will protect) and I will happily publish them if I can verify them to be accurate and reliable. While I work with all partners in the town, they ALL understand that if they get something wrong I will report on it in a balanced and fair way -which includes giving both sides of a story. You can email me your news items to in confience.
  2. Unfortunately Greyman the media, like many other organisations have had to make cutbacks during a lengthy period of austerity which started way back in the 90s. They simply don't have the reources to spend hours digging deep on stories anymore and we rely on eagle eyed members of the public to help. There is absolutely nothing stopping you attending council meetings and submitting probing questions which would then be picked up by the media and reported. But I guess that would take time and effort and revealing who you are to the world.
  3. I have been given a copy of the bid document which is very detailed and put together by the team which won the bid for Hull. I was given it in confidence so I am afraid I can not share it. RE Greyman's comments RE media needing to do more - I am consistently working hard helping promote the cultural offerings of this town and working on backing an initiative as part of our forthcoming 50th anniversary which will hopefully provide a major boost for our town's libraries at a time they need it most.. I also work closely with the town's Civic Society to try and ensure what we have left of our heritage is protected and that we can build on what we have got left. There are plenty of cultural offerings in this town but more needs to be done to promote them and get the various interested parties all pulling in the same direction. If any of you keyboard warriors out there want to get involved drop me a line.and i will get you involved.
  4. Interesting survey
  5. Was Warrington right to go for the bid? Personally I supported it, even though a long shot and it is good that we can now work on continuing to improve the cultural offering. Certainly think as a town/city we are as good as those shotlisted.
  6. My pleasure
  7. It did - and you can relive the memories with pictures and videos here
  8. Who would have thought it!!? Seems Wolves now going to be facing a relegation battle in the middle 8s rather than competing in the Super 8s
  9. Of course we do Baz - but for posts to gain maximum exposure they need to gain traction via shares and likes e.t.c
  10. While many of us have turned to facebook over forums these days, one area where the forum wins hands down over facebook is in SEO. It is amazing how many old topics get resurrected many years later because someone has found it on google or some other search engine. It's not often you see an old facebook post resurected. So this forum is pretty important for future generations and the town's history. God help future researchers with some of the ramblings on here lol
  11. Welcome Janice - you have resurrected a very old post - hopefully someone can help you. It pre-dates my mayoral knowledge of Warrington which only goes back to the 1970s
  12. Quite a surprise in Warrington South - congratulations to Faisal Rashid.
  13. I will be voting in the one that counts - and voting for common sense!
  14. Yes Dizzy I will sponsor you to fill my shoes It doesn't hurt - MUCH!!!
  15. Suspect people aren't voting because they fear you will see how they vote!!
