    Grey hair! Salt and pepper or silver - but never grey - that is for old men! I can remember a time when you had long flowing locks! 😉

    Many thanks Latch it means a lot - the occasional thank you is greatly appreciated as people are always quick to criticise and it has been quite a lonely place the last five months on social media getting battered left right and centre for just trying my best to keep a free independent media service going for this town. I always try my best to keep a balanced view, while supporting those who support us. I always try to report on things to the best of my ability in a factual way.
  3. Brings back many happy memories of my childhood living on Gosling Road Croft in the 1970s - used to collect old bullet heads and helmets from the site pictured above!
  4. Well I did and it was great!
  5. My fault Evil - allowed them to register as Eagle Eyed Dizzy is very busy these days so I had to authorise a lot of new members so watch out for some other spammers
  6. Very busy and if a sign for the future and will bring a lot more shoppers into the town centre.
  7. Bacon and egg barm - were you spying on me Evil?

    Orford Farm?

    Hi Lisa - welcome to the forum - if anyone can find any old Pictures our resident photo expert Algy is your man!
  9. I have to say the new Warrington Market is hugely impressive. If you want to "try before you buy" check out the video and pictures in the article below! https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2020/07/06/loyal-customers-turn-out-in-force-at-new-warrington-market/
  10. Thanks for all the time and effort you have put into this and I wish I could get straight answers and info off Public Health England. There are so many inconsistencies in the daily reporting figures I am actually starting to wonder why I bother. On at least seven occasions in the past month figures for confirmed new cases have decreased from the previous day with no given explanation. The authorities keep telling me Warrington's infection rate is lower than other areas, yet your graphs suggest otherwise. I am also soon to be provided information showing Warrington has the lowest COVID-19 death rate in the North West.
  11. Fantastic Algy - sorry it took me so long to stumble upon this gem!

    I would love to give you a proper Basil Fawlty response but forum rules forbid it. I certainly won't be quitting and the only thing I will be seeing in the mirror is a sour moaning milky who appears to have a very sad isolated life trying to pick fights on forums. Please clear off to the other news site and leave me to run my business, which I am delighted to say is booming since we increased the number of adverts by well over 500 per cent increase in revenue, some of which has been invested back into the community - and if you have the guts to reveal your true identity I may start to take notice of what you say.

    Thanks Asperity - Using this on a desk top and i don't know what the problem is although seeing lots of adverts promoting moaning old geezers

    Thanks Algy - eight weeks of lockdown has taught me one valuable lesson - I spent twenty years being a busy fool worrying what other people think. May be a I should also limit readers to 20 views a month and put up a pay wall as well!
  15. Certainly a big signing! But 12 months out of the game is a long time when you have to adapt to new surroundings, especially arriving in a freezing cold January. But the proof will be in the pudding.
  16. Thanks for sharing Algy - I will share with the Warrington Time Machine facebook group of which I am a curator
  17. And just to put another fly in the ointment - we had mass testing in Warrington with a drive-thru facility - but none of these tests are included in the Warrington figures and will be just added to the national figures. Also most people who have had it, got it or going to get it, will not even be tested for some time yet. So the information we are getting is a very rough guide.

    It is and with out the adverts it doesn't make any money - so I am not exactly sure what your point is?
  19. praise indeed - thank you Sid - I have to say I cringed a little when I read a headline on another site which shall remain nameless broadcasting that Warrington is a "hotspot" for coronavirus - this on a day when there were over 6,000 confirmed cases across the country - and one in Warrington! I am pleased to say I didn't click on it 😉

    The actual readership of the coronavirus facts and figures stories has dwindled somewhat since the many thousands read our breaking news story of the first reported case in the town many weeks ago - I'd say a lot of people have almost got complacent to the pandemic going on around us judging by the many day trippers descending on local beauty spots- but that's another story - and I've covered that one as well! But thanks for the comment it is nice to know work is appreciated - people normally only comment when they are having a go!

    Thanks for understanding guys - pleased to say our traffic is continuing to grow! Must be because we are still free 😉

    AS the owner I have been biting my tongue and keeping quite as there are far more important issues going on for me (my family) the town and the rest of the word. The adverts are our only form of revenue. Running this forum, even with adverts costs me personally over £750 a year, add to that the running costs of the main site (before any staffing costs) and you are talking another £9k a year!. Google gave an option to take over the placement of the adverts on this and the main site. Yes they are a bit of an inconvenience but they are not hurting anyone - all the same news content e.t.c is stll there for you for free. I currently have had to furlough all staff, had no govt grants but am still working seven days a week around the clock providing a free news service and a free forum and free daily news. The new advert placements have enabled us to keep going through what were already difficult times. If you want to carry on arguing with me over the placement of the adverts feel free - but if you are an unhappy customer (Can you be a customer if you don't pay?) nobody is forcing you on here and i am not making any demands of you. P.S Since our new advert placements our revenues have increased over 500 per cent and our website traffic has doubled in the past month, so not many people are voting with their feet. I guess you could always try the other news channel which i believe now limits how many stories you can see and they binned their forum years ago because its dwellers were more trouble than they were worth! I know I have some loyal friends on here who have been great supporters for many years and I thank you all and wish you all well. Take care and lets hope we can all get through these terrible times.
  23. The pollution problem belongs to the whole world (as in we all need to do our bit) but china is one of the biggest causes of it. Is that helpful enough for you old wise one ;)
  24. Spoke volumes that two of the best players on the park were released by Warrington - and Leeds are now being coached by a guy who took all the stick in the past! Warrington have brought in super star marquee players and released home grown players to other clubs. Something doesn't add up?
  25. Took my dad into town centre for a night out at Botanist and Cineworld - great time! Quite a few in Botanist but cinema was pretty empty!
