Re: Closure of Chorlton Web Discussion Forums

And thank YOU for hosting this site for the past 10(?) years - it has been a great resource and was the no 1 place for finding out about Chorlton news in its heyday IMHO.

But technology marches on - I wonder what will replace Facebook in 10 years time?

With sincere thanks,

Richard.

Re: The gentrification of Beech Road

I too tend to look at Beech Road (and the rest of Chorlton, really) over a 20-year period and I liked it better then than now: wider range of shops, fewer trendy bars, less traffic, etc) - though I don't miss the rowdy nights on the Green (or all the kids in the Horse and Jockey) on hot nights like ...

Re: THIS FORUM - Should it Continue?

I too would be sad to see this forum disappear, but if I'm honest I am unlikely to post to it much in the future so I could not blame Mark for shutting it down - it's his bandwidth and fees after all. Having lived in Chorlton for around 15 years prior to joining this forum, I found it to be an excel...

Looks like the hardware store next to the bus station Co-op is now going to become a furniture shop.

Re: Closing down... opening up

Not need for this forum to shut down - all people need to do is keep using it (and the site owner to keep on kindly funding it too, obviously - many thanks for doing so over the years). Personally, I've never had a problem with the Facebook group - stay away from the more inane comments and it's fin...

This is a family forum, Ollie!

We have to respect the views of all the yummy mummies who took over the Beech when it served thai food.
