Great British Bake Off comes to Penyffordd.

I think minus Paul Hollywood.

The event was organised by the committee at the toddler group, Lynn Jones, Caroline Thompson, Ceri Moore, Laura Goble, Ruth Fletcher, Helen Ing, Laura Weller and Alexandra Trevor.

The junior winner was Ffion Brown, aged four, second was Henry Moore and third was Jack Mullin. The winner for the adult category was Jenny Russell, second was Jane Curtis and Julie Brown came third.

Penyffordd Pedestrian Safety

Someone put the following comment on my blog.

"Too many motorist parking on footpaths and pavements in Penyffordd. This makes a hazard for pedestrians and mums with prams. A bad habit that should not be tolerated by the police. "

Thank you for posting this, an important point especially around schools and the Spar.
NWP aren't interested in such minutae and are no longer responsible for enforcement. It will take pedestrian injury reported in the local media to get any action. Flintshire County Council are now responsible for such misdemeanors.

If you contact County Councillors Cindy Hinds and David Williams they will alert the appropriate dept within FCC.

As people know I live on the corner of Penymynydd Rd. We have a large pavement which is occasionally used for parking. Last year on a Sunday morning when the All Day Breakfast was taking place someone got booked for parking on said pavement at 11 am.
Motorists have also been booked for parking on double yellows near by.

Enforcement seems peace meal to non existent at the moment.
We won't talk about the cretin who blocked my drive for 15 hours............ Had to get NWP on that one. NWP did very well on that.

BT Hub 5 Wifi EMF Microwave radiation alert.

We have BT Infinity. The box is in my office. I don't like sitting in wifi all day because its bad for you.
So I turn it off.

Funny how even though I turn it off it still works on Lisa's ipad.

Been scratching my head about this for a while. Thought Lisa might have been using next door.
But she isn't, she's using ours even though it says its switched off.

There's a second wifi signal that gives everyone free wifi. So I'm still bathing in electromagnetic radiation.
Bastard BT.

I'm reading that below which I hope will show me how to switch off the second. I suppose I could always surround it with a Faraday cage otherwise known as tin foil...................

postscript. Getting BT to turn off your wifi may prevent you using your wifi devices elsewhere. ie your mobile phone.

postscript: BT Wifi / Internet box now in old shoe box lined with multiple layers of aluminium baking foil.  Lid to be taken off when wifi is needed which is 5 minutes a day.
It works Lisa's portable devices can't get signal. We'll be staying with network cable.

Local Communities are organising themselves

Gone are the days when communities voted in  community councils then just left them to it. Hope, Caergwrle and Abermoddu have organised an action group just as Penyffordd, Penymynydd and Dobshill have.

Not sure if you can see the link below if your not on Facebook. If not its well worth joining, its quite easy to just put a few vague details down to join.

Power to the People !

A Welsh Assembly Government Act to help Penyffordd district

Penyffordd Penyffordd Community Group meet Senior Flintshire County Council Planning Officers

This week the above group met with senior planners to discuss development within Penyffordd district. A presentation was shown to the planners. Views and fears were communicated with regards over development of the village. The meeting a very important stepping stone.

Shortly all Penyffordd district will be receiving an anonymous questionaire asking them about many facets of village life, current and for the future.

I encourage you to take the time to look through the document, complete and return it to one of the designated drop off points.

A Saturday Morning Meeting is planned in The Institute shortly where residents can raise objections and exchange points of view.

Also further meetings are planned to take place in the British Legion in the near future.
