Good... I prefer my transport companies NOT to be run by homophobic god-bothering, ignorant facist FUVKWITS.

Plus free parking on thursdays after 4:

"Free parking in the city centre
On-street parking will be free from 4pm for the next three Thursdays. And for the next three Saturdays (20, 27 August and 3 September) NCP parking will be free in the High Street (Arndale) car park between 6.30pm and 10pm - a saving of up to £6.90.
In addition, NCP parking will also be free for the next three Thursdays (18, 25 August and 1 September), in the Chester Street, Printworks and Salford Exchange car parks between 4pm and 8pm.

Free tram travel
Metrolink have announced free travel between 10am and 6pm this Sunday 20 August for up to two adults and two children using a voucher which will be available from the Transport for Greater Manchester website and in Friday's edition of the Manchester Evening News.

Free family fun
You can read more below about the incredible Platform 4, and all the other free events taking place in the city over the next few weeks.

We Love MCR day
On Friday 26 August, make your way to Exchange Square to hear speeches from a line-up of special guests. If you can't make it into the city, then you can still take part by joining in with the Manchester 'tweet up'. Tweet your messages of love for the city by including the hashtag #ILoveMCR in your message - and help put Manchester on the global trending map."

Hello Chorltonians
I was thrilled to hear about the Metro station openning in St. Werburghs. Some of you may know that I used to live under that bridge in a tent. As I never get to Chorlton now I wonder if there are any photos of the station, maps etc? I wonder where the entrance is and which side of the road the station is? I have seen a bit of poor You-tube video, but it just concentrates on one train arriving and leaving.
Regards, to contributors. Annie must be getting very old by now

Hi Annie and Sarah,
Not sure about WTF. Wait till Friday?
All I was meaning was that if Annie sends 2 letters per week, then her 3800 letters would account for 38 years worth of answers. And let's face it, you do dish it out rather often, Annie.
But hey ho, that's my two for this month. (Sorry tram enthusiasts)

just used the tram for the first time, to go and see Button drive through the streets. £2.80 return and a quick servive definately made it worth doing. Shame it rained most of the time, but what can you expect from a BH Monday!

Moving on from yet another unprovoked snipe.....

Nell Lane junction is now open... Hardy Lane is now shut....and all the trees on Maudeth Road West between those points have been cut down.

I expect there will be a hippy outcry this week

Don't the hippies normally have the outcry before the trees are cut down?

There was a petition, a Save Our Trees flyer and they ties yellow ribbon round them. What more do you want?

I want them to stay on the bus, forget about us, and put the blame on me.

That only counts if it's an oak tree.

I'm sorely lacking in my studies on How to Recognise Different Types of Trees from Quite a Long Way Away.

I keep thinking it's a larch.
