Look out for Captain Toms flypast
[08:24:48] Resident097:

Should come over the top of the turbines
[08:30:00] Brenda Elldred:

Fantastic podcast again Amanda - I really miss the Morning Worship with all of you. Can’t wait to get back and rattle those tambourines!! 😘💕🙏

[08:35:58] Resident097:

Fair way up and quite spread apart but still nice to hear the sound of those engines
[08:37:46] Resident017:

Even they were social distancing 🛩️
[08:55:18] Adrian Dale:

(To: Chelston Rise Residents)

I have put a call into Gigaclear to ask them to honour the promise made at the 20th February meeting where they said that the introductory discounts would also be available when Chelston Rise goes live. Please don’t place any orders until the discounted rates are available.
[08:56:15] Resident131:

Thank you Adrian, Vanessa
[08:57:57] Resident002:

Anyone get a photo of the fly past?
[09:00:07] Brenda Elldred:

Another great podcast Adrian. If the walls of the church could speak we would have some wonderful stories! And some hair raising ones probably. When the church is open again there is a copy of the article “The Cinderella Church” at the back long with another on the organ for all to read. Thanks to Father Roger-Davison who restored the building we have a growing church now of around 40 members.
[09:01:37] Resident064:

Thank you
[09:07:12] Resident097:

Well there is some good news today

IAN HUNTLEY has Corona Virus and is in a Critical condition

Heres hoping .... Karma !!
[09:09:41] Adrian Dale:

[09:09:53] Resident109:

A lovely tribute to Colonel Tom
[09:18:52] Brenda Elldred:

Thank you Adrian - this is very helpful in making our walks meaningful.
[09:45:56] Resident032:

[10:01:37] Resident107:

Gigaclear dropped our cost to £35 on the 300mbps plan.
[10:03:59] Resident010:

What contract length Richard?
[11:07:39] Adrian Dale:

[11:21:55] Resident101:

Higham Road is a lot busier today. From Foot Lane to Village Hall 34 vehicles passed me. Mostly cars with more than 1 person in them. Compared to a week ago about 15 vehicles would pass me on that stretch.
[11:23:43] Resident023:

And with that the Covid numbers will rise again.
[11:31:41] Adrian Dale:

Yep apparently we didn’t get the memo today. Crisis over and no one will die or get infected anymore! Reality check - This is not going away any time soon!
[11:45:21] Resident101:

Just 29 vehicles on my walk back. 😂 I should have said in my first message I didn’t include Elliott in the post van.
[11:47:24] Resident097:

Damm and there was me just about to hold a street party to celebrate i thought those spitfires were to mark the end of the war
[11:48:18] Resident101:

😂 😂
[12:01:20] Resident072:

I have to travel to work still to some days and have definitely noticed a huge increase in traffic. I think people have just got bored being home but it won't help!
[14:48:54] Resident136:

Jigsaw puzzle no.2 is now available if anybody wants it
[15:57:23] Resident016:

Who thinks up these things? ....
Lockdown lingo - are you fully conversant with the new terminology? Apologies if anyone is offended by the only slightly naughty number 10....

The ups and downs of your mood during the pandemic. You’re loving lockdown one minute but suddenly weepy with anxiety the next. It truly is “an emotional coronacoaster”.

Experimental cocktails mixed from whatever random ingredients you have left in the house. The boozy equivalent of a store cupboard supper. Southern Comfort and Ribena quarantini with a glacé cherry garnish, anyone? These are sipped at “locktail hour”, ie. wine o’clock during lockdown, which seems to be creeping earlier with each passing week.

*Blue Skype thinking*
A work brainstorming session which takes place over a videoconferencing app. Such meetings might also be termed a “Zoomposium”. Naturally, they are to be avoided if at all possible.

*Le Creuset wrist*
It’s the new “avocado hand” - an aching arm after taking one’s best saucepan outside to bang during the weekly ‘Clap For Carers.’ It might be heavy but you’re keen to impress the neighbours with your high-quality kitchenware.

As opposed to millennials, this refers to the future generation of babies conceived or born during coronavirus quarantine. They might also become known as “Generation C” or, more spookily, “Children of the Quarn”.

*Furlough Merlot*
Wine consumed in an attempt to relieve the frustration of not working. Also known as “bored-eaux” or “cabernet tedium”.

An overdose of bad news from consuming too much media during a time of crisis. Can result in a panicdemic.

*The elephant in the Zoom*
The glaring issue during a videoconferencing call that nobody feels able to mention. E.g. one participant has dramatically put on weight, suddenly sprouted terrible facial hair or has a worryingly messy house visible in the background.

*Quentin Quarantino*
An attention-seeker using their time in lockdown to make amateur films which they’re convinced are funnier and cleverer than they actually are.

*Covidiot* or *Wuhan-ker*
One who ignores public health advice or behaves with reckless disregard for the safety of others can be said to display “covidiocy” or be “covidiotic”. Also called a “lockclown” or even a “Wuhan-ker”.

The sudden fear that you’ve consumed so much wine, cheese, home-made cake and Easter chocolate in lockdown that your ankles are swelling up like a medieval king’s.

*Antisocial distancing*
Using health precautions as an excuse for snubbing neighbours and generally ignoring people you find irritating.

*Coughin’ dodger*
Someone so alarmed by an innocuous splutter or throat-clear that they back away in terror.

Extra make-up applied to "make one's eyes pop" before venturing out in public wearing a face mask.

The 10lbs in weight that we’re all gaining from comfort-eating and comfort-drinking. Also known as “fattening the curve”.
[15:59:58] Resident097:

[16:11:13] Resident061:

Thanks for sharing this Carol, some of them are really funny; I’m definitely fattening the curve!!
[16:34:30] Resident016:

[16:49:24] Resident013:

I have just spoken to Anglia Water. Gigaclear contractors appear to have caused a considerable leak half way round the crescent n have left site for the day. I called them hoping it had been reported but apparently it has not.
[16:58:13] Resident097:

Typical Gigacrap quality of work again

Hopefully it will be sorted
[17:00:09] Adrian Dale:

Have sent it to the top
[17:00:36] Resident011:

How did they cause it? Have they damaged a pipe?
[17:17:40] Adrian Dale:

Just had word back. It is a 25mm Water main, not where it was marked on the plans. It was reported by John Henry Group to AW at 15:30.
[17:25:29] Resident013:

Strange. Perhaps they report to a different department to who I spoke with
[17:31:16] Adrian Dale:

Yep they have a contractor route in - will all be fixed tomorrow! Well it better be!!
[17:33:25] Resident055:

[17:39:10] Adrian Dale:

Excellent thanks- I’ll pick them up in the morning
[17:57:40] Resident064:

[18:01:08] Resident011:

Aw lovely we have a stream now 😄
[18:02:31] Resident064:

[18:02:31] Resident064:

[18:02:31] Resident064:

[18:04:02] Resident011:

Love the fact the cables are half drowning... anyone fancy fishing in the crescent? 😂
[18:05:01] Adrian Dale:

Good news they are sealed ducts not cables!! This will cost them big time!!
[18:09:10] Resident011:

Oh well... just hope the water wont get cut off so far so good
[18:20:49] Resident064:

No. 41 has no water 😱
[18:21:36] Adrian Dale:

That’s an emergency call out - fix tonight
[18:22:16] Resident064:

They need to call or its already been called?
[18:22:42] Resident011:

Oh dear... normally I'd be happy to offer put bathroom but in this situation it is a hit difficult 😱
[18:22:52] Resident011:

Our not put
[18:30:44] Adrian Dale:

Sorry just on the phone - call AW ASAP 0800 771881
[18:31:09] Resident064:

Will do, thanks
[19:42:19] Resident007:

[19:49:30] Resident003:

Oh dear, just seen this. We still seem to have water at 43, and the Anglian Water man knocked on the door hours ago to check. Hope they've got 41 sorted. xx
[19:50:09] Resident064:

All sorted 👍👍
[19:50:23] Resident003:

Oh good!🙂
[19:53:10] Resident087:

Not sure if anyone has details for forklift place? There’s some sort of alarm/hooter going off has been for a while?
[19:54:21] Adrian Dale:

Sorted! Just got hold of them. Old Syd died on Sunday but I’ve managed to get a message to them
[19:55:30] Resident009:

Thanks adrian
[19:57:33] Resident087:

Oh crikey that’s sad news, thanks for doing that !
[20:19:25] Resident097:

We heard the clapping and a vuvuzela !! Well done
[20:31:44] Resident007:

Ethan had a bit of stage fright at the last second, used all his energy on the scooter prior to clapping lol
[21:07:21] Resident101:

Just putting it out there

Would anyone be interested in taking part in an online just for fun free general knowledge quiz on Saturday evening?
[21:08:38] Resident046:

Yes please
[21:08:41] Resident046:

To quiz
[21:09:38] Resident038:

Sounds good, what time roughly?
[21:18:38] Resident101:

That’s great there’s some interest. Was thinking maybe 7ish but really any time that suits people. Could even be in the afternoon if preferred.
[21:20:25] Resident136:

7ish sounds good to me Rachael.
[21:24:53] Resident101:

[21:40:36] Resident051:

We waited for him ☹️
[21:41:51] Resident051:

Yes we’re interested
[21:50:29] Resident007:

He was out playing a few tunes prior to clapping and had Happy birthday for captain tom 💙
[21:56:21] Resident051:

Bless him, all dressed up for it x
[21:59:34] Resident007:

Yea the "grubby tiger" with what was his Easter hat 🤣🙈
