  1. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone on Community Online.
  2. I have some experience here, and I must say I was expecting it.
  3. From the album: Oswestry Branch Railway Line

    A sign on the wall of the largely unused Gobowen Railway Station (for some years only one small section has been used by an accountants), giving details of when the building was last restored and what organisations were involved in the financing. Free thinkers amongst you are referred to the largely unused Oswestry Railway Station in town that underwent restoration a few years ago and remains largely unused.

    Oswestry Branch Railway Line

    A series of images showing the existing condition of the old disused Oswestry Branch Railway line from Gobowen.
  5. This could just simply be a case of members forgetting their passwords, as there's certainly no shortage of topics to talk about. I must admit I'm a lurker circling in the deep dark depths of the "Who's Online" section, constantly refreshing it to see what topics the Guests are reading. There appears to be a spike during Saturday evenings, probably because of the twaddle on telly.
  6. It boils down to the cost and effort to keep the site running against the lack of engagement from the membership. As to promotion...and off the top of my head: The username mugs to each member and some distributed free around the villages, the two competitions upstairs in Oswestry Indoor Market, the posters in Hengoed and Gobowen, the flyers featuring a link to the site distributed to EVERY HOUSEHOLD (bar 2) in Gobowen, the voting boxes in the Post Office, the Garden Café and Gobowen Library, flyers featuring links sent to some households around Oswestry, the brand new football kit with the logo (match funded out of our own pockets), updates in the Roundabout (including the latest issue)...I'm sure the list can be added to. From a very nasty and hungry Great White. ...and the banner for the IT project... ...eh, and the cuddly toy...
  7. This is just a guess: Shropshire Council. You probably need the Highways Department. It would be better to email them and keep a record of when you send the email (create a folder for it), then you can refer back. Good luck.
  8. It's my understanding that the Wren will be 40 this summer. What items would the readers of Weston Rhyn like to see included in future issues?
  9. aha!...a Scorpion! Two pincers at the front and a poison spike in the tail. Happy Birthday.
  10. From the album: Oswestry Branch Railway Line

    October 2015: A photograph from the Coney Green Pedestrian Level Crossing looking toward Oswestry Railway Station. I new line with hardcore is being laid.
  11. From the album: Oswestry Branch Railway Line

    October 2015. A fence erected by Cambrian Heritage Railways Limited (as features their notice to trespassers) between Middleton Road Bridge and the Plas Ffynnon footpath in Oswestry. This has been put up to stop people walking along the line owned by Shropshire Council.
  12. The new housing development on the old coalyard in Gobowen, October 2015.

    Canal Bridge

    The bridge over the Llangollen Canal (or the Shropshire Canal...or the Chester Extension...whatever), in Henlle.

    New Homes

    The new estate being built in Watt's Meadow, Gobowen, 2015. The only way to access this estate via car is via the small roundabout as you enter the village from the south. This photograph was taken from a very narrow footbridge (only wide enough for one person) that crosses the railway line.

    The Meadows

    The short footbridge that crosses the River Perry in The Meadows, Gobowen.

    The A5 Bridge

    An unusual photograph of the bridge in Gobowen carrying the A5 over the railway track. A footpath to the left leads from Old Chirk Road, over the line and through some fields toward Hengoed.
