Re: Broadband connection around Fairlawn Park

We’ve had 3 providers during our time here and never reach anywhere near speeds promised and often cuts out though not for long. When we first moved here BT came to check the line and also said it was fine. And yes, constantly see the BT vans.

Re: Camping in Mayow Park?

I saw some people this time last year - wonder if it’s the same people. The people last year weren’t doing it for fun they were either homeless or travellers.

Re: Planning alert - St Philip Neri school travel plan, last chance to comment

Hi I don’t understand this. The entrance being used is the one in the park. The school have said there are no plans to change this. The school actively discourage parents and children to use the front entrance. I’m a Fairlawn resident and have noticed a welcome reduction in traffic since the entranc...

Thanks Mosy, yes I have emailed again.

Re: High water pressure?

I’m no expert but is this why I had to get pro gas out to fix my 3 year old boiler ( expensive)? The pressure gauge was above 2 and pressure valve constantly dripping. Even after “fixing it” the needle still points at 2? It’s a nightmare!

Re: OLSPN

I was at the public meeting chaired by Tom Copley. I live next to the school. This summer I should have been avoiding dust and noise but instead the site lies dormant. It’s not right that the small number of objectors have such a loud voice and have caused the project to come to a halt. Unfortunatel...
