    I find it interesting how some pub thrive and others die. There are many closed pubs in Warrington but over the years there have been new ones built too, example the one were the Skoda garage is now could not make it yet a brand new pub a few feet away is doing OK. Many like the Stretton Fox get refurbished. Went to the George and Dragon in Greater Budworth a few days ago and while not packed was busy. Go out once a week for a meal usually to a pub although this week was the KFC in Latchford and it is hard finding a pub that sell food that is different from the next one along Pubs also do themselves no favours by selling soft drinks at such high prices. My family actually looked into buying a country pub some years ago and what put us off was the huge local rates payable at the time, don't know if it changed now.

    I know of many thriving businesses in such locations. I had a friend once (yes I used to have a friend) who owned a wicker furniture business in such a location. Even if the location is not suitable for such a business at least I am trying unlike you with no imagination you just agree with what gets proposed and come on here slagging people off. Another one down is the Lymm Hotel and yet again we see planners and councilors siding with developers, then they say they want to connect with people.

    I actually agree with the unions! UK is not the only country running underground trains or building new systems, any of them unmanned?

    I did not know Range reopened, I know the origanal Range closed years ago. I did not know about Martin Dawes and forgot about Padgate appliances. The others mentioned are not really physical appliance stores, we're you can see the goods, ask advice, be pressured into buying extended cover.

    Such buildings have Been converted many many times before there are examples all over the place. You have a huge lack of imagination PJ, I am convince your a Councillor or some sort of pollotician. As for shops, I have seen antique shops in such location, kitchen showrooms, outdoor activity store all doing ok

    Yes but not recently. No it isn't, what is being proposed is to demolish the current building, unless something changed Why is a shop a gormless proposal?

    It is the sort of wooly answer you give. The pub was a popular until it was converted to a restaraunt so how about a pub, or a house, or several houses, or apartments or shop, or offices, I have seen all of these converted from pubs. You need to get out more PJ.

    I was watching a program on the underground system being built and the new trains. A new driver will have a starting sallery of £60000, now I wonder why these trains are not driverless? Surely it must be a lot easier to program a train to run without a driver then a car and why do we need pilots on aircraft?

    So they did, but they are still going to build the new Juke and Qashqai in the UK and if you talk to the people who work at Nissan they will tell you the real reason they will not make the X- Trail in the UK is because of lack .of capacity. When I was involved in courier business one of the regular jobs we had was delivering pharmaceuticals that came into Manchester airport every night from the USA among other things. Now the USA is not in the EU, occasionally there was a delay of an hour or two but there was never ever any disruption

    Range, they closed last century! Apart from Currys there are no appliance shops left in Warrington, I do not think! The wait time for the council was long, I think I used them a couple of times to take away white goods. I have a pebble drive and just covered it with a plastic sheet It is £15 and most online retailers will charge between £15 and £20 to take away your appliance, John Lewis charges £20, most willl charge for removing packaging too

    It was only white goods that were collected for free, things like furniture and TVs were subject to a charge. I guess we are both right.

    I don't thinks so, Warrington Council collected a washing machine for free in September and the lady who I spoke to at Warrington Council said they only started charging just before Christmas. If your well off £20 is just a few bob if your not then it is a lot. I was just about to load the oven into the car to take it to the tip when a scrap dealer stopped and offered to take it for me. Guessing as there is lots of aluminium and other metals in it he will make some money recycling it.
