    Lloyds cuts a further 3,000 jobs and doubles branch closure plan

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36911896 Anyone caught up in the fall-out of this or Lloyds earlier closures? There appear to be a variety of reasons for these latest cuts so it would be unfair to lay it at the door of one thing, but I do wonder what those customers that don't use on-line...
  2. Morecambe Carnival

    Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but Morecambe is holding its annual Carnival this Saturday so expect roads leading into the town to be busy, not sure if there are road closures as well. Maybe allow extra time for getting there. On the plus side there is an It's a Knockout contest...
  3. 'Travellers' antics at Canvey & Southend during the weekend.

    Just read the Echo's story of the above, disgusting. How come these 'people' can leave a site and be allowed to leave behind a mountain of rubbish, and no one gets arrested?. As for what happened in the Bell at Southend, can you imagine a group of locals behaving like that and no one getting...

    Question Mohsni thread closures

    Which is the harshest Mohsni thread closure?
  6. Refreshments situation...

    I have been a south upper STH for many years, and over the past few years i have witnessed to decline in refreshment outlets in the South stand. Once upon a time there was one in the 'upper walkway', one at the lower (south west) corner, and one near the entrance (south east). A couple of...

    Zone Update Bury (H) - A127 closed after the game

    Just thought if you usually head down the A127 away from the ground, then you might want to bear this in mind on Friday: http://www.southendstandard.co.uk/news/southend/8800767.Overnight_road_closures_announced_as_Progress_Road_works_continue/?ref=rss&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=twitterfeed

    Save Our Libraries

    Due to the local authority cuts, a massive number of libraries across the country face closure. The residents of Stony Stratford (near MK), have withdrawn every single book of the libraries 16,000 stock in protest at the councils plans to close it. What a fantastic idea, and one that's got them...

    London Zoo

    I spent the weekend around Little Venice and thought it might be an idea to take the kids to London Zoo. I can honestly say I have never seen such a lazy bunch of animals in my life (apart from some of the monkeys and the otters) and the penguin enclosure looked like a low budget Wickes water...

    Invasion of Manchester

    I have to say I have never seen anything like this morning in Manchester City Centre with the invasion of Glasgow Rangers. Was advised by my brother-in-law who is in the traffic police for GMP not to drive in to work today with all the road closures around Manchester City Centre to accomodate...

    Dagenham tickets

    Just looking through the programme from last night reminded me about Dagenham tickets. There was no announcement of stands being closed at last nights game although it was stated that plenty of tickets were still available. The programme also doesn't mention stand closures just that kids go...
  13. ShrimperZone Investigates ...

    The Club Shop has suffered mixed praise over the past couple of months after the problems meeting the supply-and-demand for the new replica shirts. Temporary closures, uninterested staff, and failure to meet demand are some of the complaints that have been aired here on the ShrimperZone forums...
