Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Evening all I have some more positive news. The Trustees and myself have agreed a date of 5th November for an online Zoom meeting to find a mutual way forward. We have an agenda sorted and although it may be on the 5th I’m not expecting fireworks but I am expecting solutions and positivity from all...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Don’t want to be a Debbie Downer but agreeing to a meeting (virtual or otherwise) and actually going through with said meeting are two different things . Fingers crossed this is the start of better things but the pessimist in me is not confident. You never know. Things have moved on a bit lately. I...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

So a small update. The Trustees have replied with a query and I have addressed it straight away. I have offered four more dates towards the end of the month which will give everyone ample time to agree and prepare. This all bodes very well - but not for obvious reasons...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Hi Geoff, As you say, we've not always seen eye to eye but I'm with you 100% on this. Novie's treatment went beyond disgusting, Wales should be tarred and feathered for what he did to the museum and they don't usually garner much sympathy from me these days and Gina has single-handedly destroyed the...

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

the task I note now being done by paid help. Paid help? You sure? I can only assume the grave needs some sort of specialist care nowadays that unfortunately must be outsourced from far away. Why would someone ever have to be paid? Coniston is full of beautifully tended gardens so any number of peop...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

My experience of Elvington on the Stay Gold effort was of a long strip of perfectly smooth tarmac. I drove my road car along it flat out much to Malcolm's annoyance as l kept posting superfluous times on his timing gear, then l walked along a long stretch of it at the far end looking for a piece tha...
