Apparently the ten people who post on here are completely representative of every opinion in Newbury though. laugh.gif

Yes, as AC says, I suspect this thread is about the old Newbury Retail Association "community" forum.

It was Newbury.net......a community Forum. Had things like Events, Memories, chat about anything etc., Sometimes it was busy. especially about the olden times with some photos of earlier Newbury.

Once that was the superior Newbury Forum, & then the management just failed to invest, got complacent & let the competition take over. Regulars left, or were asked to leave & well the rest is history.....

It was a self serving forum, well put together but edited with a bias.

And since the rising bollards no longer rise and snap at cars it significantly reduced the number of threads started... I must admit though that I did like the old photos of Newbury section...

Just goes to show that the rising bollards were a bit like the science fiction invisible wall that wasn't there when you looked but suddenly stopped you with a bang. Just goes to show that people concentrating on the vehicle in front and making sure that a pedestrian didn't step out from the shadows had missed the signage and were simply following the bus or taxi ahead.

Starter for ten.

It is back!. I am sure that the absence was noticed.
A photograph of Newbury Tennis Club from the 1930s is waiting. Well it has been waiting for a while now.
No 1 on the must do list.
