    Corona virus

    I'm sure there are folk who have had letters who are not getting support but from personal experience I cannot fault what has been offered to my daughter. The only help we have taken up is prescription delivery. I get annoyed at all the negativity from those that are not directly affected, especially when they get things wrong. If you stop and think of the massive numbers of people on the lists and the very short time the authorities have had to arrange stuff, they have done a bloody good job.

    Corona virus

    As I understand it, and I could be wrong, the first letters went out to those that hospitals considered should be shielded. Others were added to the list when GP practices went thro their lists. Think the list has been updated a couple of times. My daughter didn't receive her letter until 2-3 weeks ago although we knew from online forums that she should be on the list and acted accordingly before lockdown was announced. We haven't had a food parcel as we said we don't need one, local businesses doing deliveries and lately supermarkets but the local council do arrange for medication to be collected and delivered to us for which we ar very grateful.

    53 days into lockdown and only now you ask! Where the heck have you been for the last 7 and a half weeks!
  4. Id suggest that's no recommendation.

    Illegal Riding Zero Tolerance

    Apologies for accusing you of bringing it up. The rest of my post stands.

    Illegal Riding Zero Tolerance

    And I understand that you have your views BUT the NHS was not mentioned in the statement. You chose to bring it up, because it suits your arguments that are massively well documented on another thread (which you are totally entitled to do) My point was by linking it to the NHS you were covertly implying that because the NHS is not snowed under (your view) it's OK to break the Forestry Commission rules. Sadly symptomatic of many nowadays. The rules only apply if they want them to. My view and I'm sticking to it

    Illegal Riding Zero Tolerance

    Doesn't matter a jot. The reason is, it is Forestry Commission and/or private land and they make the rules. They have decreed for whatever reason they don't want bikes ridden on their land. What part of that don't you understand.

    Just asking, no agenda but did you have a test?

    Corona virus

    One pleasant side effect of the coronavirus is it appears to have solved King's Lynn's notorious traffic jams. Went to the local butcher and then to an edge of town shopping complex for cat litter today and rush hour when it's normally nose to tail crawling there was not a queue in sight!

    Corona virus

    Many of the private staff are NHS workers, who would be better employed in their normal jobs on overtime than standing in the pits at speedway.

    And my 93 year old mother in law but easily sorted. Got her to write shopping list, phone it to me, I order it to be delivered to her.....sorted.

    Corona virus

    Agree with you that the media have everyone running scared. I, my husband and especially my daughter are in the high risk groups but intend to carry life on as normal as much as possible but taking sensible precautions. As for large gatherings, I think they will be banned but more to give the emergency services a break than for infection control. Paramedics etc will be stretched to the limit in the near future so standing about at concerts/sports events etc is not a good use of their time in these circumstances. Health workers etc will be in the front line of this and we should be grateful to them all.
  13. Not going to happen in this day and age
  14. It doesn't affect me personally as I no longer go to speedway let alone Peterborough. I will ask him the next time I see him. However I'm not convinced that he is behind this move or maybe even realises the furore it has caused. If he does then he is not the person I think I've known for over 2 decades.
  15. It wasn’t an excuse, it was a question. Quite frankly your aggressive response shows you for what you are. An ignorant bigot. just to be clear I know Buster quite well, I also have personal knowledge of how far he goes to allow access to speedway for the disabled but your bigoted responses to comments and questions on here do him no favours whatsoever.
  16. Exactly how does someone with 2 walking sticks/crutches carry such a chair? Give me a sensible reply please as I realise you like to offer solutions.
  17. If anyone is doing the above and hasn't sorted out accommodation I can thoroughly recommend the Richmond Hotel in Weston Super Mare. not the nearest but I've been staying here for the past 4 days and can't fault it.

    Pretty sure a few of those fixtures will change judging by past seasons Who knows might be the ones in question

    Transfer Window

    Maybe the doc signing the sick note should have to give estimated time that the rider will return to fitness. rider not allowed to ride before that date, might stop rider collusion.

    No chance. The days of me slinging my leg over a bike are long gone

    Hi tellboy. nice to be missed I agree with what you say and to a great extent Buster is bound by what the rest of British, and indeed world speedway does. I'm a realist and from past conversations with Buster know he doesn't/didn't agree with quite a few things himself but even as BSPA supreme couldn't change them. If I had to pick just one thing that IMHO would improve things (and boy how big is the choice) it would be to reduce the power of the engines so it's rider skill that wins races and not tuner's tinkering. Going back into hibernation again now but who knows a visit from Nicki in 2020 might just tempt me back to Saddlebow Road

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Well said. I would add, if things people moan about don't improve there comes a point when they think why should I care and stop moaning and more importantly stop attending. I reached said point some time ago. I rarely look at anything other than Lynn threads now and quite honestly it's the same old thing season after season. *stands back awaiting incoming missives *

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    Actually it's not but a week of announcements about announcements culminates in the announcement of a reserve (or that's what most people think). At the very least I would have expected one of the top 2 possibly 3 riders but as I only watch occasionally from afar my opinion will be dismissed. just seems to me in this social media obsessed world Lynn are about 2 decades out of date. Glasgow seem to have it right

    Well after a week long hype , a sensationally underwhelming announcement.
