Bailey Shops closure

2:27pm Wednesday 12th March 2014

HOW sad to see that nearly all the Bailey's shops are closing, I remember all the hours, miles and hard work I spent setting them up and running them the Bailey way, the good manageress that took over from me as I moved on to open others, Long St, Gloucester, Thornbury, Wotton-under-Edge, Berkeley, Nailsworth, Cricklade, Witney and lastly Stonehouse the old shop, not the new one, which I see is now a convenience store.

Beware election trap

3:18pm Wednesday 28th April 2010

This election is increasingly reminding me of the Monty Python sketch "Confuse a Cat".

Yet, in this glut of political "information" and opinion, the most important issue for this country is hardly ever mentioned: our membership of the EU.

Don't cut school build

12:52pm Friday 25th January 2008

HERE we go again, cutbacks at Rednock School. The same thing happened 30 years ago when the school was last rebuilt. Is there no one at county level who can add up, look at and read a drawing, cost a project, etc, etc, read the details from the contractors submissions and award the contract with no strings attached? Having been a district councillor at Stroud, I have had some experience as to the way the system works and when you see how some of the contractors outline their quotations, it's enough to make a dog laugh - and this from very large companies. It is still not too late for a full appraisal as to what is going on. How can we have cost cutting only six weeks into the build? The time has come for a major change at county level and to elect people who know what they are doing at any level of government.
