    Yes, on multiple occasions, a queue of cars waiting to turn right into the site (coming from Lloyds roundabout).

    So you say that the Queen dies, and then during her state funeral, Trump nukes China, but at the same time there's an anything you want for 39p offer on at McDonald's ?

    Are Milkshakes included?

    Looks very nice indeed...

    I wonder how much the meal prep thing costs. Not because I’m considering it, just curiosity as to how much someone pays for something like that

    Try every Sunday lunchtime when the porkers queue up for ages to get their Sunday roast McChicken dinner with fries.

    I probably used the Wimpy kiosks at Milford, and the one that used to be opposite the Picture House far more than MacDonald's over the years. Maybe it's just me but they always seemed to taste better.

    Joanie Mitchell sang - ''They paved paradise, put up a parking lot'', in this case, they knocked down the best Wimpy and shoved a nightclub in its place! (Casa)

    He wrecked the place when he drove thru it, but in all fairness ... it was before he passed his test. :heyhey:

    Not sure if it's been mentioned as part of the new McDonald's but the car park owners are installing new gates further into the car park so they can restrict or of hours parking but still allow people access to the burger joint....

    I am not sure if anyone has taken it on or not, but I noticed the let/ sale signs for Off the Hook in Mill Street have cone down and there was a host of workman going in early this week.

    Peering through the windows yesterday all the furniture has gone that was still there a few weeks ago and plenty of work seems to be happening

    Double Double Good Records on Mill Street has decided to close until April 1st (currently).

    Probably a good move when selling goods that will have been handled many times before finally being bought, as anybody who spent Saturday mornings flicking through the vinyl might agree.

    I don't know.

    Collectable Records on Wolverhampton Road do - in fact, you've got to be 'special' to be let into the shop...

    I suspect that a lot of people think you're "special".

    Or Tim may just have been frightened about the prospect of trying to keep a Geordie out.
