Re: The Barlick War Memorial Group

I have just called into the Rainhall Centre hoping to see the Town Clerk. I understand from the article in the Lancashire Evening Telegraph that the issue will be discussed at the meeting on Wednesday night. Apparently the Clerk is only in until 12 Noon on Monday. I have emailed him for an agenda an...

Re: The Barlick War Memorial Group

I was told in the marquee that the WM had to have an extra stone inserted for more names to be added , and that re-siting the memorial was a consideration. It is unfortunate that the councillors presenting the proposal for the memorial did not do their homework regarding the recommendations for app...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Today is a meeting day. First, I will be at the planning meeting for the Centenary celebrations in August for the ILP Clarion House on Ginny Lane. Just about to set off for that. A bit of dinner, and then our first meeting for the Barlick War Memorial Group at Rolls, lot's to discuss in both camps.

Re: Barlick War Memorial Research

In the early months of 1945 as the allies push forward through Europe towards Germany, there is growing optimism in the town that an end to hostilities may be in sight. The BET reflects this in the kind of articles it carries, there are lots of meetings and public debates taking place about local is...

Re: The Barlick War Memorial Group

You're right there Stanley, If the memorial was re-sited to the Memorial Gardens it would actually be a lot less prominent than in it's present position. On approach into Barlick on Kelbrook Road, the memorial would not be visible until you reached the garage, at which point you are virtually level ...

Re: The Barlick War Memorial Group

I see that the proposal to move the memorial has now been in both of our local papers, the BET and Craven Herald. The Craven Herald article sheds light on what I was told in the marquee on the square when I went in to register my objections to the proposal. I was quite taken aback when I was told th...

I'm with Talk Talk at the moment who took over from Tiscali. They have their own kit at the exchange and I get 17Mbps solid so no reason to move. Their dealings with BT on my behalf when I had the line problem were good once I had convinced the first line support that I knew what I was talking about...

It may be down to the way you approach them, I don't know. I do think though that if you have a permanent downer or a ...

Very unusual for BT that Kev. Once a slot is booked it is normally cast in stone. It should not really make any difference that the visit was booked at the behest of your ISP. BT like the Gas Board is often much maligned for it's level of service, I have never experienced this and have never receive...

Tiz, I think the top and bottom of it with the Gallery is that you have to resize the images before uploading to the site. There is no option to control the size between gallery and post.

Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

You could use it to mark a vertical plumb line if you hung it on a pin in the wall.

Is it not also somewhere near the standard width of a warp on a Lancashire loom? I reckon it's out of the mill anyway.
