2 600 year old religious statues, which used to be in the Church of St John Baptist in Cirencester, had to be taken down in 1963 due to safety concerns. But now no-one knows where they are.  So they are to be replaced once one of the 5 applicants has been selected to create new ones.

If any of you have ever been to Cirencester you will know the church as it's the one in the centre and could easily be mistaken for a cathedral.

Good evening everyone  

Not a day to remember for me sadly 

More rubbish dumped in our small pool overnight. More emails to my local councillors and my MP. I had one reply so far saying that it will be sorted tomorrow and steps will be taken to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ll believe that when I see it 

Not much more to say really

Evening Moonie 

I can never understand why people dump rubbish. Just put it in a bin, you lazy toads! 

I hope your emails force some action 

The thing is Yogi, it was more like a van full rather a bin full 😡

 Fly tipping - that’s even worse!!!

Is there any cctv around the park?

There isn’t Yogi. The park is getting a lottery grant of nearly 6 million pounds to do  new buildings and regenerate other parts of the park including the little pool. So it’s not going to be good for the wildfowl or the regeneration scheme if rubbish keep getting dumped in there, is it Yogi?’

looks lovely EL - love churches and cathedrals

Good morning everyone

 

Raining here and likely to for much of the day.

 

Moonie, fly tippers are a menace . I hope those who are targetiing that small pool in your park get caught

 

Just heard on the news that there are calls for parking on pavments in England to be outlawed.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Good morning I don’t know where the weekend has gone! I can’t believe how fast the time goes. I’ve had my mum here for a sleepover, we had tea with friends, lunch with friends and a walk with friends. 

 

how are you all today? It’s raining here but it’s pleasant. 

Did anyone watch strictly?

Good morning all 

Raining, up here.

Summer, I watched Strictly. There’s quite a few celebs I like so I’m hoping they can dance and last a while.

Sounds like you had a lovely weekend

El, there was talk of police enforcing a “no parking on the pavements” up here but,  it might actually cause more problems. With families often having three cars where I live, someone always has to park in the street and if they didn’t park half on the pavement, larger vehicles like the farmer’s tractor, local buses, fire engines, ambulances etc would struggle to get through.

I do appreciate the problems the pavement parking can cause for people with larger/double buggies and wheelchairs.

 

Off out with hubby, catch up later.

Turns cake radar on 

Yogi, I was aware that there was talk of such a pavement scheme up there. It's not too bad for pedestrians, other than those with a pushchair etc, if a vehicle is only slightly on the pavement. A different matter when the vehicle is covering 3 quarters of the pavment making it very tricky for pedestrians to get past.

You are very welcome, Moonie 

Have you been up to the pond today? 

Three times today 

The little pool has had all the rubbish moved from the edge. Looks like it has never been there 

However, still floating debris on the pool near to the island. So another email went off to the parks councillor who got the rubbish removed this morning. 

At the furthest the island is only 7 or 8 feet from the edge of the pool and at most it is only 3 feet deep. All it needed was an operative in fisherman’s waders and it would have been sorted
