[07:26:28] Resident009:

Nice one Adrian! Happy birthday chap !
[07:28:14] Resident097:

Thanks Andy
[07:55:08] Brenda Elldred:

Brilliant Adrian - another really interesting podcast. Coming from Devon when John met my aunty with her broad accent, he couldn’t understand a word she said - it was hilarious watching his facial expressions! Words like ‘back se fore’ for wrong way round! Or ‘God’s cow’ for a ladybird and a daffodil is a Lent rosum! As you say another language.
[07:59:01] Resident097:

Brought up in Cambs then moving to Norfolk Suffolk Border before living on essex border ... my Dialect is so messed up !! Lol

But this was my first impression of working in the Farming community in Norfolk as a lad ... took me ages to work out what they were saying

[08:11:53] Resident011:

Happy Easter everyone!

Really interesting to listen how Chelston Rise was named... with a mistake 🤪

And well done Adrian for pronouncing my name correctly, not a lot of people manage that 👍
[08:12:14] Brenda Elldred:

Our local pubs were always playing the Wurzel songs. Typical West Country!

[08:15:20] Resident097:

[08:30:57] Michelle Dalliston:

Happy Easter everyone! 🐣🐥🎉 Looking forward to joining you at 10am for our Easter Day Service - get your candles, bowls of water and singing voices ready!
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia 😃☀️🦚
[08:38:21] Resident117:

Great broadcast again Adrian. Like you I'm fascinated by accents and dialect. Born Cambridge but moved lots including Northeast Cheshire Leicestershire. Formative years York. Reminded me of different words for a pack up - scran bait snap. Any more? Also when moved locally took me a bit to understand that barn meant garden shed!
[08:41:14] Adrian Dale:

[08:44:31] Michelle Dalliston:

Great Podcast Adrian! We too enjoy accents etc - dad and husband growing up in Norfolk - 'how do together, then?' (how is everyone?!) then living variously in Essex, East London, Lincolnshire and Newcastle we've picked up a good few before now - actually I was born in St Alban's and the local voices here often remind me of my early years - very comforting! Happy Easter everyone 🐣
[08:58:50] Resident063:

Thank you Adrian. Happy EASTER and birthday. Jesus Christ is risen today the reason for life. Allelluja
[09:04:19] Resident094:

[09:17:03] Resident097:

My sister lives up in Mansfield Notts and every time i go to the Bakery im askes if i want a Cob or a Barm !! ... no i want a roll 😂
[09:22:29] Resident131:

My darling late Father was born in Glasgow, moving to Edinburgh as a child. Even after many years in the RAF and living in Bedfordshire,he never lost his accent. I love to hear it. The sound of a familiar accent can be such a comfort
[09:43:09] Resident123:

[09:44:11] Resident131:

Does anyone else watch the film, The passion of the Christ and every time silently plead for the ending to be different? If you have never watched it, it’s a fantastic film but please be aware that some of the scenes are very hard to watch, Vanessa
[09:50:39] Brenda Elldred:

[09:54:48] Brenda Elldred:

Yes we do and yes it is hard to watch but worth it - it was a very cruel death but at the time it was a frequent site.
[09:56:21] Brenda Elldred:

Woops sight not site! Sorry
[09:57:28] Resident131:

Brenda, I do love the film, just have to have a big box of tissues at the ready x

[11:07:22] Resident034:

I'll let you know when I've dropped them off😊
[11:08:02] Resident040:

Thank you for this Adrian. I've been interested in finding out more about here since moving here. So am I correct in thinking that Cheveston was pronounced Chelsun? I was oartly schooled in Blakedown School near Kidderminster but I think the only trace of Brummie in me now is when I say Birmingham, pronouncing the G.
[11:08:42] Resident040:

Might also help if I spell Chelveston correctly too 🤦‍♀️
[11:08:48] Resident097:

:-( Sad news Sir Stirling Moss has passed away
He was a Motorsport Legend a true icon of his era

[17:20:57] Resident051:

[17:32:41] Resident023:

Do you know who’s the big ginger cat is?
[17:34:53] Resident053:

Nice photos of the village Dave.
[17:48:44] Adrian Dale:

Hi Chris, In January I had a spooky experience at 6am in the Churchyard one morning on my rounds. It was pitch black and I had my head torch on. The only lights are normally the two altar lights shining from the Church. I looked around and was shocked to see two orange lights on Michael and Christine’s grave. As I walked towards the grave they went out. My first thought was that the old boy had come back to hassle me again!
I walked closer and the lights came back on. Then they shot off at lightning speed up a tree. It turned out to be that ginger Tom playing tricks on me. I don’t know where he lives but I now call him Michael each morning!
[17:52:47] Resident023:

That’s brilliant Adrian, that would have spooked me too, and you never know with Michael!

The ginger cat has been terrorising Caldecott for some time and is responsible for quite a few vets bills to repair local cats! You got away lightly.
[18:08:07] Resident045:

[18:08:43] Adrian Dale:

Lol!! Frightened the life out of me!!
[18:10:01] Resident051:

He’s beautiful. Is he a Maine Coon?
[18:10:59] Resident045:

[18:11:43] Resident051:

Aw. Not seen him about
[18:21:33] Resident023:

Does he roam round Caldecott?
[18:21:37] Resident125:

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought this chat was about enduring villagers are not isolated and have the help they needed. Didnt realise it was about moaning about cats that are terrorising local cats, isn't this a local cat!! I have 3 cats and I'm sorry cats will be cats the same goes for humans who dont pick there dog poo up!!
[18:24:28] Resident023:

Sorry Tammy - you may have got the wrong idea from my message. I Didn’t mean to upset you. Happy to talk outside of this group if that helps you?
[18:27:17] Resident125:

I just think some things should be left out of this chat. It meant for us all to help each other not moaning about things on the scheme of things aren't relevant at the moment. You haven't upset me I'm just speaking how I see it. I'm happy to stay in this group if it's used for what it meant to be used
[18:31:35] Resident023:

I fully agree!!!!!!
[18:32:38] Resident012:

There will always be topics on here that don’t necessarily interest some people but will amuse and enlighten others. If it’s not of interest to you then scroll past! Lots been said on here the last few days not necessarily relevant but always of comfort or amusement to others. Maybe some people need to lighten up a bit. 😊
[18:33:56] Resident097:

Guys that wanted Logs/Kindling im gonna be kindlerising (sp) the wood this week its all new clean offcut Timber Joist mostly oak so burns at a nice steady pace. Before I smash it into sticks does anyone want any as small blocks ? Ideal for wood burners or pizza ovens etc.
Blocks are normally around 6 inch x 2 inches

Kindling is normally 1 inch x 6 inch tall

Ill start cutting them up Wednesday and you will be able to collect

All wood is first come first served but message me and I will do my best to accomodate so everyone that wanted some gets some.

Wood is FOC whilst it lasts but anyone wanting to make a donation however small is welcome too and I will pass it over to Adrian and the Parish council so they can put it towards any equipment etc they may require.
[18:35:25] Resident097:

Will be in 4-5kg netted onion sacks for ease aswell
[18:46:41] Resident055:

Anyone with books out think 💭 it might rain get them in for today x
[18:47:30] Resident130:

We've got a wood burner so the shape is pretty immaterial!!!
[18:53:26] Resident009:

Hi chap, happy to donate, just let us know once ready, I’m at work in weds, but free until Tuesday. I’ve been doing the odd fire in the garden for the kids, so anything you have is great 👍🏼. Hopefully there’s a bit spare 👍🏼, thanks
[19:03:29] Resident097:

[19:07:38] Resident050:

[19:07:44] Resident097:

[19:08:25] Resident097:

[19:15:48] Ray Daniells:

[19:16:30] Resident102:

[19:17:09] Resident055:

[19:20:30] Resident055:

[19:23:04] Resident102:

Very difficult to pick out the helpful info amongst non covid-19 related posts
[19:25:46] Resident097:

Adrians daily bulletins have more info on support etc i believe but if you are struggling self isolating and in need of anything then feel free to message and we will see what we can do as a group to assist
[19:25:50] Resident055:

Trust me if there is anything horrible Adrian will be on it ! Just folk trying to support each and cheer us all up . What will be will be stay safe
[19:27:40] Resident097:

Bottom line is we are all in this together nobody should be struggling so if we can help we will obviously taking safety into account and obiding to safe distancing
[19:30:20] Resident097:

[20:10:07] Adrian Dale:

What happened to a day of rest!!!!
[20:12:29] Resident018:

Well done Vanessa but these people should be prosecuted for spoiling the countryside
[20:12:44] Resident097:

Someones been playing Van hoopla by looks of it

Backdoors open 1 drives and the other lobs the tyres out :-( kinda takes the P seeing as world of rubber is only round the corner but these morons would rather take a 5k flytipping fee or a prison sentence than pay 10 quid to dispose of them correctly.

As a mechanic and tyre fitter myself it really annoys me
[20:14:09] Resident009:

Thanks for mine 👍🏼, I was out already so no cash on me, but will donate tomorrow 👍🏼👍🏼, if I am find some cash , not been out for 4 weeks.
[20:17:14] Resident055:

[20:17:29] Resident093:

Adrian / Vanessa - how are you disposing of this stuff at the moment? I've got some rubbish I cleared from the field behind the pub that I want to get rid of.
[20:18:24] Adrian Dale:

Tell me where it is and Mark or I will arrange disposal with ENC send photos if possible
[20:18:37] Resident097:

Not a problem,Donations optional im not gonna hold anyone to ransome for it ! I made my money out the wood in the winter months so this was just surplus wood i have left over but have a garden full of classic vehicles and a workshop going up soon so need the space now !

Any donations would go towards PC

Maybe they could be put towards a Skip ! To get rid all this flytipped stuff
[20:19:29] Resident097:

Need more than waders there need a chainsaw !
[20:23:40] Ray Daniells:

Already reported and awaiting ENC to sort thanks.
[20:24:45] Ray Daniells:

Landowner is aware of this.
[20:26:40] Resident023:
