  10. Can anyone tell me where have all the window cleaners have gone?
    For almost two years I have asked, passed on messages, stopped cleaners while at work, and phoned so many that have not replied. that I am thinking they are a dying breed.

  11. theres 2 window cleaners that live up my road gary and graham if you want one of them i can tell them to come to you

  12. I would like to know when is Catle vale going to get either a decent shopping centre or some affordable shops. It is a disgrace that Sainsburys was allowed to bring their corporate money grabbing shop onto Castle vale it is way too expensive for people, and really it does not cater for the working class and poor. Originally we was meant to have a proper shopping centre to replace the one the H.A.T ripped down, instead we have a major retailer that has been put on here for passing trade and not for the benefit of the residence. Not only that but it has prevented smaller businesses from operating as Sainsbury made sure of that because they are greedy selfish corperate arseholes who’s only objective is to make as much profit as possible.We have a bthstore that does not benefit the residence. It is ok if you can afford to shop there and can also buy everything yo need there. However for the people that cant afford their prices they are forced to travel off the estate which then costs £3.80 min or the price of a taxi if you have a load of shopping to carry. the old shopping centre might have been somewhat outdated but at least it was affordable and there was enough different types of shops to be able to get everything you wanted. It was also a meeting place for residence on the estate and gave people a chance to meet for coffee and shopping. All it needed was a facelift. I feel we have been completely let down in this area and sold out to the highest bidder. I was on the commitee when the consultation of this was going through and opposed it as did a couple of others, however we were not listened to. Castle vale has turned into a miserable a ghost town, with no community spirit left because of the wrong decisions made by selfish commitee members. I feel that something needs to be done and the residence need to claim back their estate from the profit makers and i will be launching a petition about this.

  13. could someone tell me how to e-mail to the vale mail or set one up please x denise xx

    email: editor@valemail.co.uk

  14. Does anyone know the name of the man who’s always clearing up the paving and grass areas at the top of Turnhouse Road/ Farnborough Road? i think he should have a mention in the vale mail as he does such a great job and has no recognition for his work. The hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed

  15. Hi Anon, is this the man on the scooter?

    If so I nominated him for a community award last year, but have never been able to find out his name so just put ‘the man on the scooter who litter picks’,

    I’m there are quite a number of residents who quietly go about improving Castle Vale for us all, and whilst they do not do it for the recognition, it good to say thank you at some point.

  16. i think the man you are on about is a black man that lives in the block of flats at the top of farnborough road.
    he is constantly sweeping and weeding the area.
    wished he lived by me!
    i too think he should get a mention in the vale mail.
    keep up the good work.

  17. He’s a nuisance with an awful attitude, he shouts at the kids who leave near my parents for no reason, and put potatoes where my dad parks his car. He is good at sweeping and cleaning but I don’t think he should really be out on his own.

  18. He does a good job. I do believe he has a few problems but that shouldnt stop him from being considered for some sort of recognition.

  19. I agree he should be rewarded for what he does not punished. keep your kids away from his house then he will not shout at them
