Street Lights

Local Conversations in Blacksmith's Corner

Thought that "certain circumstances" enabled the street lights to be left on when needed. Obviously the council did not think it would help with the forecast high winds last night for people to actually see the trees or large branches on the ground ... [ more ]

ur all so rite but the matter is the owners its got to be sad wen they find out ,i would be mad if they hadnt told me , i think they should bring the licence back ,
Tina
Sorry if it's already been mentoned but I read that it was going to be law from next year to have all dogs micro-chipped due to the expense councils pay looking after strays. So, surely it follows that they will scan all dogs, dead or alive?
