  1. My grandparents Edward and Henrietta Southwell lived (I believe in Mary Street) in the 1950’s, he worked in a tannery I believe. I stayed with them for a while and remember going to Keithley school, I remember my grandad playing bowls in the park and also the railway

  2. Just driven around the corner next to hoyles garage and they have removed the roadworks there.great except the road is an absolute disgrace there has been no cleaning of mud and stones and the tarmac that has been put over the roadworks is unbelievable how they can call that a road surface I do not know.
    As a motorcyclist this is an accident waiting to happen .

  3. Wondered if something could be done about the state of old road, mainly by the farm. It is very unsafe after the recent heavy rains and floods, not safe to walk or ride on
