    I remember buying a copy of the local paper when I was in Exeter for work some years ago. The headline was something about a wheelie bin being set on fire - made me laugh as the usual headlines in Manchester are about shootings and stabbings.

    The first day we moved in (coming from Hackney where the dead body in the skip in our street didn't make the newspaper) the lead story on the local TV news was about stolen goats.

    When my mother moved from Brixton to Wiltshire the front page the day she arrived had two stories, someone parking on double yellow lines and a 'drive by shooting' ... Which turned out to be kids with a pellet gun shooting at cars ... It never really got more interesting than that.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    I still look at the local news (I'm from Bath) there was a recent headline about the possibility of vigilante justice after a bus shelter on the Wellsway was vandalised :hmm: #meanstreets

    Wellington, Somerset - we had a house-to-house about a bike that had been stolen from someone's shed down our street.
    Pleasantly parochial compared to living in Easton, Bristol

    You beat me to it, I came here to post this :thumbs:

    "Why should I give up my fireplace? If I was on the dole or I had kids on my own, or I was Eastern European, no doubt they would let me keep the fireplace."
    What a twat! She really should stop reading The Sun!

    I've seen online ward over Ginsters, Devon saying 'not ours, they're in Cornwall' and Cornwall saying 'not ours, it's got Devon owners'. No-one wants it :D

    fucthest8 What the zarking fardwark was that?

    Fucking hell

    "Those dancing in the wrong coloured dresses stuck out like sore thumbs and as far as I am concerned is completely ruining a truly lovely, traditional day."

    "I am not a prude in any way shape or form but some of the dresses were that tight, they looked like they had been painted on and were so short you could almost see what they were wearing underneath."

    As if anyone would have had anything white 800 years ago (or more - who knows) when the Flora Dance dates back to.

    The good people of Cheddon Road will have to travel further to get their shopping. Travelling as far as Priorswood can take up to 5 minutes at busy times

    I fear this could lead to a breakdown in society in this part of Taunton

    Stock up today. Before it's too late

    SpookyFrank If it's alive, don't lick it.

    The petrol station up the road from my dad does a mean pasty, does that count as a drive-through?

    They're homemade pasties and if you phone them up in advance they'll put some in the oven for you so you can pick them up freshly cooked. Although it is possible that only my dad would ever phone up a petrol station and tell them to put pasties in the oven.
