First topic message reminder :

I found something rather interesting whilst scanning t'internet this morning.

Chester, my home city, is apparently the 5th prettiest (or best, depending on your interpretation) city in Europe, beating such giants as Prague, Budapest, Santorini, Venice and Bruges. Now, seeing as the list was voted on by American's, we can assume it is 100% accurate and fully informed, seeing as they do enjoy travel so much, and has to be considered as exhaustively researched and fully comprehensive a survey as possible.

Can anyone trump Chester as the prettiest city in the UK? I can only think of York and Bath that perhaps come close, but Bath is too southern to be considered and York is too Yorkshireish to really be worthy of comparison. So it is official, Chester is the greatest city in the UK and by extension, people from Chester have to be considered as the greatest citizens of the UK.

I think you'll all agree.

When I go to fancy dress parties I just dress normally and when people ask me what I've come as I tell them to f**k off.

Big wheel was in the ‘wrong place’ admits city centre organiser
5 Jan 2012 00:03

"CHESTER’S Christmas wheel was ‘in the wrong place’ to attract massive crowds, admit organisers.

As the big wheel was finally dismantled on Tuesday after almost four weeks at St Martin’s Mount, organisers admitted the 100ft wheel had not been as successful as last year.

Despite the Christmas market and helter skelter drawing crowds to the city centre shops, organisers of Chester’s festive celebrations said the wheel was simply ‘too isolated’ behind the bus station to draw shoppers browsing the stalls.

The news comes after six people had to be rescued by firefighters when they became stuck in the air when the wheel malfunctioned on Monday.

Fire crews from Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service tilted the wheel, which is a safe rescue device, to help down the people who were in two separate carriages when the wheel stopped mid-turn.

Commenting as the wheel was dismantled late after strong winds prevented owners safely taking it down, Chester city manager Stephen Wundke heralded the Christmas festivities as a ‘great success’ but said it would have been better if the stalls and wheel had been in one place.

“Generally speaking people have been very positive about the entire thing. People went mental when we said we the wheel wasn’t going to be coming back, we managed to get one as big as we could safely fit on that site,” said Mr Wundke.

“We did not have any choice on a site for the wheel, we couldn’t use the one near the court like last year. We have had a better winter this year than last year, but people enjoyed going up and seeing the city in the snow, they don’t want to go up in a carriage in winds and rain.”

Mr Wundke said the owner of the wheel was positive about how many people had ridden in the carriages, but that he was unable to provide figures for the ride."

Huge crowds swamp Winter Wonderland opening event
22 Nov 2013 12:46

Police close gates at Chester Racecourse as 'unprecedented' numbers lead to overcrowding

Families found themselves caught up in packed crowds after an ‘unprecedented’ number of people flocked to Winter Wonderland in Chester.

Thousands of people descended on the city centre to celebrate the official start of Christmas as the festive lights at the Winter Wonderland attraction at Chester Racecourse were switched on by Olympian Beth Tweddle.

But as the parade heaved into the racecourse, massive overcrowding led to the decision to close the main gates to Winter Wonderland.

Chester Race Company has since apologised for any inconvenience caused to visitors and admitted ‘it is always hard to anticipate in advance how many people will attend an event’, calling the numbers ‘unprecedented’.

Jenny Cameron, who was with her three-year-old daughter, Emily and her partner Dan, said she saw people climbing underneath the barriers in an attempt to escape the crush.

“A woman was shouting that children were getting squashed,” said Jenny, who travelled from Ellesmere Port to visit the attraction.

“It was dark, I could feel little children around my feet, I didn’t want to move. It was a nightmare. We just wanted to get out and we couldn’t. Emily was frightened, but she was on Dan’s shoulders.”

The scheduled ice skating performance by Deeside Ice Skating Club was cancelled due to the ice not being ready in time to skate on.

Racecourse chief executive Richard Thomas said: “It was unfortunate that our ice rink hadn’t fully set in time for tonight’s opening but we hope visitors appreciate that our top priority is public safety, which can’t be compromised.  It was a very close call; however, with the attraction being open for five weeks, we acknowledged there’s ample time for the rink to be enjoyed safely.  We hope that the attractions on offer provided just a small snippet of what’s still to come when Winter Wonderland fully opens.”

The club’s youngsters helped cut the ribbon on the ice with Dancing on Ice winner and world champion gymnast Beth Tweddle, to officially open the event following the light switch on in the city centre earlier that night.

Many complaints were posted on the Winter Wonderland Facebook page and upset visitors contacted The Chronicle claiming the event was “an absolute shambles”, “badly organised”, and a “disgrace” that people didn’t get in.

Others, however, praised the Christmas Parade of Light and the event at the racecourse saying their “children loved it”, it was “festive” and that they would “definitely be going back”.

Dee 106.3 radio presenter Gavin Matthews, who was covering the festivities from 2pm, was forced to watch the light switch-on from Nuns Road after being turned away by police for safety reasons.

“I gave up trying to get in and watched the tree getting switched on and the fireworks from Nuns Road,” said Gavin on Friday.

“I was disappointed – I wanted to see what it was all about to talk about it on the show; in the event the big story this morning was the gates being closed and the reported crushing so we ran with that.”

But despite the crowds and apparent issues with the token machines for the rides, families have said they will be heading back to the Winter Wonderland to meet the reindeer and enjoy the rides when it is quieter later this week.

A statement issued by Chester Race Company following the event, described the influx of people as “unprecedented”, and difficult to anticipate, reading: “An unprecedented number of visitors attended the opening of Chester’s Christmas lights switch on and Winter Wonderland tonight; through the city streets, congregating at the racecourse.

“As a live, free event, it is always hard to anticipate in advance how many people will attend an event, last year’s switch on was attended by around a thousand people. The site experienced pinch points when the parade arrived at the racecourse and people were inconvenienced and we apologise if you were affected.

“Decisions to close the gates were taken for safety reasons as crowds were being closely monitored on CCTV to ensure additional exit routes could be opened to ease congestion. Again if you were one of those we offer our apologies.”

A Cheshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: "An unprecedented number of visitors attended the event which resulted in some overcrowding at entrances to the Winter Wonderland.

"Chester Race Company who are responsible for safety of the event, took the decision to close the gates on safety grounds to prevent serious overcrowding within the site, this left a substantial number of visitors locked out.

"Cheshire Police assisted Race Company stewards and then managed the roads surrounding the Racecourse to ensure the safety of visitors outside the event returning to the city centre and local car parks.

"No serious injuries were reported to the police.

"The health and safety for this event is the responsibility of the host.

"The host, the council, and police will be reviewing the matter to see what lessons can be learned."

Well, why didn't you say so?

A puppy had to be released by firefighters after he got his head caught in the internal mechanism of a reclining electric sofa.

Fire crews were called to a family home in Walnut Grove, Hope Farm, Ellesmere Port, about 10.30pm on Monday last week because the young Cavachon dog, called ‘Deputy’, had become stuck by his head and paw.

Firefighters, under the supervision of the RSPCA, dismantled the sofa and were able to prise the mechanism open wide enough to release the puppy who was none the worse for his ordeal.

The family, who had been waiting anxiously in the kitchen, were reunited with the puppy. The owner held him while a medical assessment was carried out but there were no obvious injuries.

Temporary crew manager Kieran Cleverley, of Ellesmere Port Fire Station, said “The advice was just to monitor him and keep him away from the chairs!”"

Sound advise from temporary crew manager Kieran.  With insight like that, it is a matter of time before the 'temporary' part of his title is removed.

It's hard to look past Newcastle for this one. It's has the metro centre and Eldon square, both of which are littered with rockeries and flower pots.

Certainly beats Chester which is full of cranky old dears who hate tourists but rely on the money, and York which is full of alcoholics from Middlesboro.

I should add I've not actually been to Chester, I just imagine that is what it's like.

Your personality is what held you back I would imagine.

I don't actually think Newcastle is easier to get a shag than other major cities. Birmingham is the definite winner in the slag tables, or Nottingham. I almost pulled a lass from Hooters, until she told me to urine off. So close.

What's the METAL scene like in Bradford, Dave?

I saw a picture of JON BON JOVI on stage with Prince William and Taylor Swift.  That must have made you desperately proud to see one your own with such exalted company?

They could at least pick an attractive veg, like a pepper of chilli, or my girlfriends personal favourite, the cucumber (it reminds her of happier times before she met me apparently).

I really don't think you needed the "before she met me" part.

People from London don't laugh. As a group you are pretty boring and lack important attributes such as having a personality.

Possibly not. She does seen to spend a lot of time 'shopping'. Should I be worried.

Depends really. If she is shopping in Asda then probably not. If she comes home laden with dildos that she tries to hide from you then yes, you should be worried.

She doesn't need dildo's Tina, she's got the real thing in me*

*albeit it slightly (possibly a tad more) smaller and definitely not as long lasting as Duracell.

In fairness, horses generally do deserve punching.

There's your problem right there, you've got it the wrong way around - you need to get your real thing in her.

I refer you back to my personality comment. Stop trying to drag the country down with you, you've almost ruined the economy once, let us have our beauty.

Certainly beats Chester which is full of cranky old dears who hate tourists but rely on the money, and York which is full of alcoholics from Middlesboro.

I should add I've not actually been to Chester, I just imagine that is what it's like.
York would be my vote. But to be fair Jack you do have a point here. It has got progressively worse for stag do's over the last few years. Not really too keen on Newcastle though to be honest, there are a few too many Geordie Shore types about.

Edinburgh should be up there though. Great city.

It's hard to look past Bradford...your eye keeps getting drawn back to it as you think "Dear Lord in Heaven, what the **** happened here?"


Then you go to the scummy bits........
What's the METAL scene like in Bradford, Dave?

I saw a picture of JON BON JOVI on stage with Prince William and Taylor Swift.  That must have made you desperately proud to see one your own with such exalted company?
Just cos he's bald doesn't make Prince William "one of my own"

The metal scene in Bradford used to be good a few years ago. We had a few decent local bands and used to attract some decent smaller bands until local clubs promotors started ripping them off. I haven't been out in Bradford for many years now and so I have no idea if it's good bad or indifferent these days
