How come a little old lady can phone them through having trouble with her neighbours but the Police and FBI can't find them?

I like Johnny.

I met him when i was around 10 years old in Junction Lane as he lived behind me.

I talk to him often as he lives in Fingerpost...in fact i crossed him over the roads the other day.

Hey @Robbob2010 some others to look out for in the town, former Chalon Way Hotel is having works done, not sure who the end user is yet.

Greenwoods is apparently opening in the Hardshaw Centre next to Home Bargains/Heron. Not seen it myself but family said there are signs in the window and fit out is commencing.

Robbob, that fourth picture showing what I think was the underpass on  chalon way which is now padlocked, could you not use your powers of persuasion to gain access, I would like to see what's at the end of it and how far it streches under chalon way.

Today i awoke with a spring in my stride.Decided following the AMAZING NEWS ABOUT THE SUPPOSED NEW BUSINESS OPENING NEXT TO HERON.

Onward and upward arrived at the Hardshaw Centre.Not only is it NOT a new business.ITS GREENWOODS!AND IT WASNT OPEN.I'd even had my ANNUAL BATH expecting that so called "FLASHER"Robbob of course to be there.

Not the slightest whiff of any flasher!

So it was back home shell suit back in cupboard!
