£1m McDonald’s Bedhampton drive-through gets green light


Yet another farcical decision by our local planners.

Have they ever visited this site ? How many times have they sat in the queue waiting to either get into Asda to go shopping or even just to go and get fuel. Many times I have seen the traffic backed out of the site and I have decided to go elsewhere or even just go home to return another day.

I think it is just what we need, more traffic entering the Asda site. Admittedly when the store is closed and the kiosk-pay petrol pumps are closed then there really won’t be an issue. However, for the rest of the time i.e. during waking and normal working hours this new development will surely add to the aggravation.

As usual there are the weasely words about creating jobs but what will happen to the McDonald’s branch in Waterlooville centre. I’m guessing that it will fade away in the evenings.

RIP Davy – We Were All Believers


Davy Jones, lead singer with The Monkees, has passed away in his sleep. He died of a heart attack aged 66.

Jones, with the Monkees, was an integral part of our lives throughout the sixties. Many will also remember him appearing in Coronation Street.

Although not high on my list of favourite bands I will admit to enjoying many of their songs. Davy and the band have a place in my memories.

The music lives on…..we were and still are believers.
