  1. Quick, hide everyone
  2. I'll "think" about it but you know me, am var var shy
  3. I thought it had already been and gone, dizzy or what
  4. They are all leaving to either retire or to work in other area's of interest No one has been made redudent or taken voluntary redundancy, or if they have it's news to us
  5. Now then, there have been no redundancys, really, there hasn't. Not yet anyway. Re the money, actually health have a lot more money ( thought still probably not enough) from the Government than Councils and Social Services etc and so from that perspective joining forces "should" be a positive thing for the Council. That said there is never enough money for the things that Councils and Health Aurthorities need to purchase and deliver etc. And due to there being such different cultures with both services I can see many many challenges ahead, heavens if I'm not careful I'll sound like Diana The question is are we really really up for it? All these challenges and more changes, when so much else is going on that has yet to be resolved, ideally this sort if thing that I dont deny is needed would be implimented at a time when staff were feeling more positive about the Council and safe working for them, then you'd have a positive enthusiastic workforce rather than a reluctant and complient one - a thing that they're trying to weed out?
  6. Heaven forbid, and neither shall I It's awful and also no one votes for us because its all gone rather policital
  7. Thanks but I doubt it I'm working on it but there's no money so there's no money so we can't buy anything cos there's no money so that's that cos there's no money. Heaven only knows where I'll go with the restructure, "all change, every body off",
  8. Technically I'm in corridor as it is, with a fire door / escape to my right - major draft, facing a wall, with bars on the windows ......... the council do so cherish their employee's....... mind you if I had a posh office people who pay council tax would moan so erm, can't win. I think the reason I'm where I am is my need for storage and staff so at present there is no where else better I must say the the difference in workers office environment is astonishing. I work in area that causes some a lot of worry and anxiety and concern re budgeting and new work practices etc and more freedom and choice for the public, and rather than embrace the changes being implimented they've hidden me!!!!! But you know me, don't go down with out a fight
  9. Yikes, no fanks I work at Bewsey Old School, it is a very tired, old, dirty, cold, draughty, dusty, falling apart, grey, grim, soul destroying building, miserable it is, it's not clean nor is it cleaned properly and the loo's, well am saying nothing but if you can wait, you wait,
  10. Although it could be deemeded as a tradition and a tourist attraction????? It must cost a fortune to maintain and run and many of us that work for the Council do not work in premises that are remotely as nice or clean or warm or...... well the list goes on an on, it doesn't motivate staff or make them feel valued and in turn generate commitment when they work in a poor environment, and soo much money went of the staduim, be nice to work there every day, at least it's got clean toilets, and it's hoovered and it's warm
  11. There is a fine line between "mad" and "bad", act in haste, repent at leisure
  12. Is the information not suppsoed to be in the public domain? I suppose in light of what we find out when we do see, I doubt they'd jump up and down and shout "here's mine, would anyone like to see?" It is certainly about time there was a serious review of the whole matter, I think their salary should reflect with in reason an amount allowing for the cost implications of their role but not reflect personal taste and preferences, simply cover with in reason and ecomonically the added expense incurred by the demands of their jobs and no more and it shoudl be capped!!!
  13. Money makes poverty more bearable but doesn't change peoples values or standards or change your past or who you are.
  14. I live "south of the canal" and I'm not "seperated". I work in Bewsey at Bewsey Old School ( Community Services - heaven only knows where I'll work after the restructure...) and I work with people from all over Warrington every day.....
  15. Can someone please tell me where Obs may move too so I don't move to the same place Joking aside Tilly, sorry, but if you as an employee have no faith in the Council's abilities then where does that leave the rest of us as you probably know more than we do about what's going on inside. I guess it must be even more frustrating for you to see it from the inside and probably being made to 'go along' with 'whatever' as there's nothing you can do about it. It must also be very hard for the staff who, at the end of the day, are only trying to earn a wage. I guess they often find themselves being at the forefront of the firing line through no fault of their own Erm, nail, head, hit on
  16. 4 star in certain area's - thanks to Helen Sumner and those who worked with her, but she has now left However am sure some of you will be aware of performance indicators and what mangement information can do with figures ............
  17. It's all PIFFLE! Heavens above, they don't know what they're doing or what they need to do or how to do it, like Obs said, time to move AWAY........ and DON'T say "it's the same everywhere", because it isn't. Warrington is in a mess, the Council is a mess, I have no faith what so ever in this current Council and I "currently" work for them, please let something come along soon.........., it's like camping out at your grannies, they're just lurching from one fix it idea to the next

    Congratulations and well done, tis well fabby
  19. On December 21, 2102, for the first time in 26,000 years, as the Mayan astronomers knew, the sun will eclipse the centre of our galaxy. Fairly basic stuff this Asp The very one I'm on about, may not have worded the details very well in my last post Watched a series of documentries on one of the history channels recently, very interesting,had me glued to TV am sad to say and although all the "predicted" doom and gloom may or may not happen as a result, it seems very likey that the eclipse will happen and that we are experiencing the run up to it now, if nothign else it'll give us something to talk about on the day....
  20. Although alot of his predictions can easily be interpreted to suit a later event and many were in picture form or coded text for his own protection, he was an astrologer and the 2012 eclipse that he predicts "could" have implications for our planet, some say they are already happening and he was not the only one to predict this, the Egyptians and the Free Maisons being to name but a few well respected tribes / organisations etc. There is a chance that should the type of ecplipse happen that it "could effect us in a variety of ways, we won't know till it happens, it may pass un noticed but it could for example change our magnetic field and so the implications for communication systems would be beyond comprehension causing massive ecomonic problems nothing like what we're experiencing now. It could cause a series of storms that one after the other would be hard for those effected to regain composure before another one hit them, it could be the beggining of major changes in tempreture that ultimately will cause a fight for human survival. He predicted the eclipse but also mayhem, famine, human suffering, just watch the news ...... we're all desensitised to so many horrible things these days, take a step back and look, it may just aleady be happening. Either way its a wake up call. Are you going to leave it it to chance and just wait and see? On 21st Dec 2012 are you just going to pold on and do what ever you would be doing or are you going to make sure "just in case" that you are where you should be, with who you should be with, it it doesn't happen at least it's not bad thing to show the ones you love that you love them bt if it does happen you'll be where you should be. I certainly don't want to chance it.
