Re: Rock At The Castle 2017

Hmm, not sure everyone would consider this charity in the strictest sense. And what about the other schools in the town? Is Richard Hale the most deserving or needy? I see the press release (pdf) says: it's "in recognition of the school’s 400th anniversary", it's also Simon Balle's 60th anniversary ...

Re: Rushgreen Roundabout Dangerous Congestion

I would say the queueing from McDonalds onto the roundabout is definitely worse at lunchtimes.

Re: Waitrose at Van Hages

Waitrose halting new stores nationwide
