thefts of tools

Les G
in Poole Town Centre
Looks like a few cars and vans being broken into Oakdale area for tools plus sheds and garages so need to careful
Colette R
I too have the alerts. I don't have a side gate or walkway so as they'd need to do a lot of climbing to get to my garden I think I'm pretty safe, althoughI have taken the usual steps to guard my shed and summer house.

Sandra, I'm so sorry I didn't come. I had a return of the viral cough, and I didn't want to pass it in to anyone else. I hope to make the next one on 19th February
Colette R
Thank you. I knew that the office would be closed and had no way of contacting you. My apologies again.

Parking charges

Peter R
in Canford Heath
Looks like we all Mike Brooke a huge thank you. http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/15039143.Councillor_forces_second_look_at_parking_charges_hike... Thanks Mike. Wish all Poole Councillors were as vigilant and public minded as you.
Colette R
Well done Mike and Annette. I met Annette once just before she retired from Politics.?She came round introducing Vikki Slade to the community. A lady who always hit things done!! Sorry I couldn't be with you in Broadstone on Saturday.
Colette R
That was a goodly number of extra signatures Mike. I've got a workman coming round-depending in the time he leaves I will try to get to the Cuvic Centre by 2pm.
Colette R
Sorry I couldn't make it. Probably as well by the sounds of it. Thank you Peter for giving us the low down and for your reply Mike. I await with interest for your report Mike. Thank you for standing up for us.
Colette R
It is! Ooooh I too am little-but still have my husband's Police Truncheon and Whistle too!! Better use for the meetings than that silly old f**t Trumpton. Lol!!!
Colette R
Oh I have my husband's Truncheon at the ready David, and the Whistle hasn't lost its pea. Very useful for fending off cold callers!! If I carried a brick in my handbag I'd be even shorter than I am!! Lol!!
Colette R
Poole Council should be doing exactly the same as Bournemouth surely, or are they a law unto themselves? So that means, if that is the case, that the meeting held yesterday should be declared null and void. Am I on the right track?
Colette R
So Poole dies the death. No one will come to Poole to retail-shops are closing all the time and slowly the town is dying. When will the Council wake up to the fact that high car parking charges are the death nell? Bournemouth by contrast is flourishing.
Colette R
Thank you Michael for supplying the link for the Echo's report. And thank you to the editor for using stab in the back within the title heading for this report.
Colette R
And you comrade in arms! Poole Park was a great attraction when or children were small and we came from Weymouth, when visiting mil. We do take the Grandchildren-they like the train in the summer and the playground, also Karting when it's on. At ... [ more ]
Colette R
ASDA has dropped its parking charge-seems ongoing? Maureen my Grandchildren are content with Sandbanks Beach-whatever the weather! We've been in the pouring rain and one year-2015 I believe-in the snow! They don't need entertaining as they've always ... [ more ]
Colette R
I didn't know Poole Pottery had gone! I knew about the train-'elf and safety innit? How blooming stupid!! That train has been going round Poole Park for donkeys years!!
Colette R
No! That's against the law! I'm not a fan of the beach in winter either Maureen, but my Granddaughter is a sand worshipper. When she was little and we went in the summer she'd throw herself on the sand on arrival. I have no idea who the clothead is ... [ more ]

Massage

Sarah F
in Canford Heath
I've always gone to Robin James on the Quay for a back, neck and shoulder massage but its so expensive.  I'm looking for a cheaper option. Does anyone know of a lady locally that does massage and beauty treatments?
Colette R
Love it!The Mafia Ladies suits us down to the ground. I can't go to the meeting on 7th as choir night-shame!! Hope all goes well with your car. Yes get it serviced-might as well whilst it's in the garage. I'm with Green Flag too! I'm not an early ... [ more ]

Gravel Hill/ Queen Anne Drive

P Bill
in Canford Heath
Can someone please explain to me the logic or thinking behind putting 2 lanes in the northbound junction of the Gravel Hill/Queen Anne Drive Traffic lights? I can understand why there’s (always been) 2 lanes on the southbound side; there’s the left ... [ more ]
Colette R
I agree with Maureen here. It's. it merge in turn at all! It's I'm bigger/better/faster than you so shove over! Accidents waiting to happen and foolhardy road design.
Colette R
No-that's how it should work, but the lorry is not there. A car is there. A smaller car than yours. Logic, to you, says. I've got a bigger car so therefore I have priority and have to jump the queue! My logic says, oh no you don't sunshine-get to the ... [ more ]
Colette R
Thank you Paul. The sign is not working because of the mentality of the me, me, me brigade. So do away with the second lane, make it safer for everyone. Sure it will take longer to get through the lights, as it does with every single lane set of ... [ more ]
Colette R
I taught both my boys to drive. Both passed first time and had two lessons with a friend who was a driving instructor. He said he learnt a thing or twonfrom the first one, that he added into his teaching. My daughter we paid for to attend a driving ... [ more ]
Colette R
I agree about those halogen lights-downright dangerous! And if a car-usually a 4x4-is behind you the glare is reflected in your rear view mirror necessitating driving with one hand on the wheel and the other blocking the glare out or turning the ... [ more ]
Colette R
Good to hear you are still daytime driving Maureen. I've never liked night driving, nor driving in the rain in the dark. After my husband died and I visited the family in Watford I would always drive home in the dark with it pelting with rain!!! I ... [ more ]

Colette R
Agree wholeheartedly with what has been said. Takes me almost an hour from Canford Heath sometimes for a morning appointment at RBH. Since when have they said they'll charge for late appointment arrival? Thought it was for DNA's-which I support. Each ... [ more ]

Nosey Neighbours

David H
in Oakdale
Oh goodness, I must live next door to the worlds most nosey neighbours! I live quietly in my home in Dale Valley Rd. My home is council owned, my neighbours are privately owned. I have nothing to fear, I am a law abiding person and live quietly, ... [ more ]
Colette R
This is harassment David. You're neighbours obviously have nothing else to do all day but watch your movements. I feel naughty thoughts coming on here-give then something to be worried about! Other than that tell them to mind their own b****y business ... [ more ]
Colette R
Like minds and all that. Yes Steph that's why they're doing it!! On the other hand it is annoying and is an invasion of David's space. It has to stop!!!
Colette R
Like Maureen I too am widowed, but I have a social life. I've had to start from scratch in a foreign town. What more excuses are you going to give these irritants?
Colette R
Lol!!! So Maureen and I were correct in our observations, the so called "experts" were way off beam! Nice to know we have the intelligence to see the full picture.
Colette R
Ditto Maureen. I have wonderful neighbours. We have a chat when we see each other, but never a nosy chat!! They watch my house if I'm away, I if asked I watch out for my neighbours houses when they are away and have no one else to do it for them. We ... [ more ]
Colette R
Ha! Ha! David, you're so funny 😂! Thank you Maureen for giving me a push in the right direction re getting sorted with careline. You'd think that I'd know better being a retired nurse wouldn't you? It is a dangerous game I play. No family down here, ... [ more ]
Colette R
No!! I was a Nursing Sister in a Practice in London too! Kingsbury to be precise. Lived in Harrow. Our area started up out of hours and I was chosen with 5 other Practice Nurses to run it-that was in 1998. It was called HARMONI and covered surrounding ... [ more ]
Colette R
Thank you for your advice Bill. Very kind of you to point out the difference between the two services. I shall go with Poole then. Much appreciated.
Colette R
So very sorry to hear this Denise. So hard when you relocate to a new area. I hope that now you have joined Street Life this will happen for you.
Colette R
Denise you should have sent your message privately. Your phone number is no longer private.
Colette R
Good for you David-with you 100%! Next time I'm passing I may stop if I see you washing your car and ask what brand of shampoo you're using, lol!!

Anyone know someone who can repair a movement crack in the render at the side of our house, located in the Upper Parkstone area?  Have contacted many builders locally who have either not responded or when they came out they did not seem interested in ... [ more ]
Colette R
You're welcome. I have text Rob and said that you maybe calling him and what for. Replied thank you so he won't be one of those who will refuse the work. He's an independent builder-very pleased with his work. Can't say more than that.

Colette R
It's so sad. We used to come to Poole from Weymouth in the summer-stayed with mil for two weeks in the summer-and the shopping centre was great! I'm talking late 70's to 90's. poor old girl can't keep her end up for much longer methinks.
