Nonsense, it's Froom (rhymes with zoom).

That's how it's always been pronounced around here anyways.

Squatting in a yurt in Glastonbury doesn’t count as living there.

"One of the strangest things I found at a modern house in Frome were horses in the front room. They just seemed to keep them there."


Yep, that definitely sounds like Frome.

Woman who caused £4k damage to 'cheating' ex’s car showed up at court in her pyjamas

A woman accused of causing thousands of pounds in damage to her ex-partner’s car turned up at court in her pyjamas.

Jade Daniels had failed to show up at an earlier hearing at Wrexham Magistrates’ Court where she was due to stand trial for causing more than £4,000 to her former partner’s Mercedes car.

She was convicted in her absence of criminal damage and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

The 31-year-old was arrested in her pyjamas while attending the North Wales Morris Dancing Championships at Pontins in Prestatyn on Friday evening, October 5.

Daniels, a single parent living with her two children at Montgomery Road, Wrexham , appeared from custody at North East Wales Magistrates’ Court at Mold yesterday (Saturday)– still in her nightwear.

Her lawyer Stephen Edwards said the defendant had two children aged 11 and five and had been in a relationship for about 12 months with Nathan Griffiths.

There was a considerable background because it was the defence case she had taken him back after he was caught cheating once – but when it was alleged he cheated again she lost control and took it out on the car at Summerhill, Wrexham, on November 26 last year.

“She lost control of herself and took it out on the vehicle,” he said.

Mr Edwards told the court Daniels had been morris dancing since she was young, and was the leader of a dance troupe which was competing at 4pm yesterday.

The case was adjourned for sentence until Friday, October 12, at Mold and she was bailed in the meantime.

The court was told the compensation amount claimed needed to the checked by the prosecution.

Residents urged to vote in Dursley referendum

RESIDENTS go to the polls next month to decide if they want a plan which will help guide future development in Dursley.

Following four years of hard work by a dedicated group of volunteers and town councillors, Dursley’s neighbourhood development plan (NDP) has been produced, so that future changes to the town can be guided by the wishes of the population.

The plan, developed through extensive public consultation, has been formally examined and approved by Stroud District Council (SDC).

And on Thursday, November 15, the community will decide in a referendum if the plan should be adopted by SDC and become a statutory document.

If a majority of voters accept it, the plan will be given a legal status. All Dursley residents who are registered on the electoral register will be eligible to vote.

To make sure the word gets out, Dursley Town Council (DTC) staff, along with members of the NDP steering group and town councillors have been pounding the pavements, delivering copies of a special NDP edition of the DTC newsletter to homes and businesses in the town.

Krystyna Dembny, a member of the NDP Steering Group and lifelong resident of Dursley, is pictured here, posting a copy through a letter box.
She said: “I was keen to get involved with the NDP in order to ensure that any future developments in the area respect green spaces for people and wildlife.”

DTC’s Anita Gambie said: “The NDP is important for Dursley as it will be used to guide decisions about where new developments can take place; protect green spaces, play areas and wildlife; support the local economy; and influence what new buildings look like.

Laura Cooper, a resident, said: “I would also encourage the community to vote in favour of the plan as it will help protect green spaces in and around Dursley including land off Hardings Drive, which forms part of the beautiful back drop to our town.”

Dr Jonathan Bird of the NDP steering group said: “We hope that you will turn out in thousands to make your wishes known.”

A full copy of the Dursley NDP can be viewed online at dursleytowncouncil.gov.uk or at the library or Dursley Town Council offices during opening hours.

If it does, there will likely be a march of local dog walkers demanding another vote because they didn't get the result they wanted.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)
