  1. Clarks Pies originated in Cardiff and didn't arrive in Bristol until the 1920's. I think they still have shops in Cardiff.
  2. I was a civil servant and he was employed on a short fixed term contract. He was pretty hopeless and his contract was not renewed. He always wore a light grey polyester suit and I remember him in a game of statues at an office Xmas party. He threw some serious shapes and he finished up with his suit inside out. He was really miffed when he didn't win.
  3. I worked with him for a while, until he was sacked. He is a bit autistic but had incredible powers of recall. If he knew your birthday and you asked him what it was 6 months later, not only would he tell you the date but also what day of the week you were born on. He could also remember weather on certain days.
  4. In America in the 1830's. Used to house Native Americans because the Americans wanted their lands. Also used in American Civil War, originally POW camps but the number of POW' s in a lot of the camps meant that they were overcooked leading to vast numbers dying from dysentery, cholera etc
  5. If anyone is interested, there is a Merrywood school reunion on Thursday at Star and Dove in St Luke's Road.
  6. I played in goal for the same team as Keith Fear at Merrywood. Keith, my cousin and myself also played for Bristol Boys in every age group. When we got to to U15's Keith didn't make it through the trial but got in when the selected player got injured. I got through the trial but the school wouldn't let me leave early to go to training every week. Ray Cashley was a defender in the Bristol Boys team that year and was signed as such by City. Rest is history. Nick Rose still runs. I see him every Wednesday running across the Suspension Bridge. I guess I was in same year as you.
  7. It is possible for planning permission to be refused when previously granted. It is unlikely that the application will be the same and planning policies may have changed since the original decision.
  8. There is a right of appeal if a planning application is refused. The appeal would be heard by a Planning Inspector, unless called in by the Secretary of State. If the Inspector dismisses the appeal a judicial review would only be considered if there is evidence that the decision is unlawful, for example, if the Inspector has failed to take in to account a material consideration. You cannot apply for a judicial review just because you do not agree with a decision.
