Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years


That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

Driffield divided over mural that 'screams welcome to our white town'

A new mural has left an East Yorkshire town divided after critics slammed it for failing to depict a single ethnic minority person.

The 'Wall of Fame' mural, recently put up in Middle Road North, Driffield, featured well-known local business owners as a tribute to those "ravaged" by the coronavirus pandemic. But some locals, residents and social media users took to Facebook criticising the project which one said "screams welcome to our white town".

The mural, unveiled in front of the former post office this week, features several local shopkeepers, restaurant owners and other personalities. All appear to be white. It followed the installation of decorative umbrellas and new hanging baskets designed to spruce up the town as it looks to attract more visitors in the wake of the pandemic.

I used to go to a skatepark in Driffield quite regularly. It was an excellent park and extremely well-maintained, and only a few quid entry. I hope the owner is doing well, he had been strategically using the fact that insurance companies "wouldn't cover" micro-scooters to keep that lot out, but I'm sure that ship has long sailed.

There's fuck all else in Driff.

According to this census data Driffield is 98% White English/Welsh/Scottish/Northern Irish/British. (https://www.ukcensusdata.com/driffield-and-rural-e00065462/ethnic-group-ks201ew). The postcode coverage looks quite small for what I assume is a city - perhaps it doesn't represent the residential areas.
That's about the limit of research i'm going to do, someone else pick up from here.

>Councillor’s ‘illegal’ shed used for romps

>A COUNCILLOR who built three sheds without permission in his garden and let his son live in one has been facing complaints from neighbours over amorous trysts. Brian Ayling, a member of Southend’s development control committee, built three wooden outbuildings in his garden on Eastern Avenue - without planning permission.

>The outbuildings were set to be used for overnight stays by relatives, but his son has been living in one for a year. Complaints to the council from a neighbour, said to be over the son’s amorous trysts with his girlfriend, resulted in the councillor being ordered to submit a planning application – which has now been rejected. A statement by Mr Ayling’s neighbour said: “I have to listen to them participating in sexual activities.” The neighbour also complained about “dodgy wiring” which he said was a fire hazard and stated that the application made “a mockery of the committee”.

>Independent St Luke’s ward councillor, Mr Ayling maintains he did not realise he needed permission for the sheds. Mr Ayling built the shed after his son – who had lost his job and had nowhere to live –was employed by NHS test and trace to work from home. Mr Ayling said: “I will be resubmitting the application again. I built the log cabin so my son could work from there and somebody complained. I didn’t realise I needed permission for a log cabin in my garden. The other person who complained was my opponent in the next election. I made an official complaint on councillor Dent because they all ganged together against me.”


Fortunately he won the appeal so we can now go back to our sex romps knowing we have the law behind us.

>Officials have been left red faced after a junior staff member was unwittingly let loose on approving and rejecting planning notices, with one applicant, a charity boss, told their scheme was turned down because: “Your proposal is whack”.

>The blunder came about when the Mid Kent Planning Support team, which handles the online submissions on behalf of Swale council, was trying to resolve software issues. In doing so, five ‘dummy’ decisions, used to test the website was working, were accidentally published.

>Among them was the sarcastic refusal to a desperate bid by Happy Pants animal sanctuary to stay on its site in Bobbing, near Sittingbourne. The charity received the response “your proposal is whack” and “no mate, proper whack”. Making good the mistaken planning decisions is now set to cost £8,000.

>Terry Rowse butchers’ change of use to a takeaway in Chaucer Road, Sittingbourne, was also turned down, with the official comments reading simply “no”, and “just don’t”, while the partial demolition of The Wheatsheaf pub in East Street, Sittingbourne, was granted, with the response “incy, wincy, spider”.

>Meanwhile, an application for the change of use for a barn to provide storage for seeds and crop protection products, precision farm services and office space in Bredgar Road, Tunstall, was granted, as was the fifth application, for the demolition of the Old House At Home pub in Sheerness High Street, to make way for flats. The latter's comment was “why am I doing this, am I the chosen one?”

>Swale council is now seeking to quash the planning decisions issued in error. It said that, on August 19, officers for the Mid Kent Planning Support team were trying to find a solution for issues with the software behind the public access site but, during the exercise, ‘dummy’ decision notices on five randomly selected Swale applications were published on the live system. After being alerted to the mistake, the decision notices were swiftly removed from the site, but legal advice has subsequently confirmed they are legally binding and must be overturned before the correct decisions are made.

I can assure you that the person who lives in that actual house owns a number of flash cars, and is in the business of buying and selling cars.

I should also add that the road in front of that house is basically the road in and out of that area, so even if he wanted to go out and about he's getting stuck in traffic with the rest of us.

Trade Centre Wales Boss Mark Bailey is trying to stop a children’s skatepark opposite his huge gaudy house on Mumbles road, Swansea. In protest against him, the people of Swansea beep their horn as they go by his house. The campaign used the hashtag #beepforthebellend to promote the beeping.

You've posted a lot about this Welsh patriot, but you've never posted his story. He's got a skatepark opposite his house (by the seafront) that he and other residents lodged an appeal to the council over it's expansion - he'd even offered more money if they'd just put it elsewhere. The beeping started only after his wife filmed him confronting teenagers who were by then repeatedly chucking things at his car as he drove past.

Then the internet jumped on him and tried to ruin his life for it. I'm not defending his shit house but if someone put a skatepark opposite me I wouldn't be too happy either. Honestly putting a skatepark right by an A-Road is daft in itself.

Fair enough, allow me to oblige.

His house is on the main route in and out of Mumbles, with prime seafront views. Across the road, on what is accepted to be public land, there is a metal halfpipe. Currently, throughout the county there are a number of basic outdoor facilities and one indoor skate park that closed because of the whole plague thing and still hasn't properly reopened. Some folk thought it would be nice to have a proper facility, scoped out some sites, and came to the conclusion that on a bit of public land on a vibrant waterfront would be a good place to put it. Then this absolute bellend who somehow managed to build a massively out-of-character McMansion on the road got indignant that other people might want to enjoy the view too, so he wrote to the council objecting to it, then went and paid for a judicial review when the council approved it. When that failed, he went over to the skate park and harassed the kids that were using it, and boasted about his Ferrari. He approached the developers and said he'd pay them a lot more money if they'd put it somewhere else, but didn't specify where he'd want it, or what he'd do if the residents in the alternative site didn't want it there either. Consequently, the people of Swansea quite rightly decided that they would make sure he knew everyone thought he was a massive bellend.

Knowing people that live in that particular area, most of the local residents do indeed think he's a bellend.

I agree, I also know this area well and the road that this hideous mansion leads onto is absolutely rammed on any given sunny day. It's extraordinarily poor planning to build a house like that there, and as far as I remember, the little skatepark was there for longer.

For context, the little rim of public land before you reach the cycling path and the beach has a few other facilities dotted along it, of which the skatepark is just one. A little bit further east along the road you have a children's park with water fountains, and a bit before that used to be a golf course (which I think has now opened up the greens to other sports).

It's been a few years since I've lived in Wales and God it's fucking weird to hear you lads talk about areas I know well.

In a statement, PCSO Michelle Owens said: "It has come to the attention of the police that a new trend has started by groups of youths called 'beaning'. This involves youths throwing the contents of a can of beans over properties, very similar to the trend of throwing eggs at properties. If you work in a shop, please can you be aware of youths buying large quantities of cans of beans, if you have children living at home, please be mindful if you see them removing cans of beans from the family home."

I think it depends how much butter you use and how often you take it out to stir.

My girlfriend tends to make scrambled eggs in the microwave and they're nowhere near as nice as doing them on the hob. She also cooks most vegetables in the microwave rather than boiling or steaming them.
