Hi,

Lucy REEKS was born 31-Dec-1911

The big 100 for Lucy who remembers Woolaston’s first car!

Friday, 6 January 2012

Claimed to be Lucy at age 4

LUCY Reeks, a member of a well known local farming family, celebrated her 100th birthday on New Year’s Eve, surrounded by family and friends.

Mrs Reeks is the widow of the late Amos ’Pundy’ Reeks. The couple spent many years farming on the banks of the River Severn at The Priory, Awre, near Newnham.

They had three daughters, Ann, their eldest, born in 1940, and twin daughters Heather and Rosemary, who were born in 1944.

Mr and Mrs Reeks were well known throughout the district and were involved in many aspects of village life. They enjoyed a passion for ballroom dancing which was shared with many of their friends.

Mrs Reeks was born in Wimbledon but came to live at Woolaston as a six year-old. She fondly remembers the first motor in the village and a quieter world without aeroplanes!

She returned to the London area with her parents and after leaving school worked in the city as a secretary. However she was to marry farmer Amos Reeks, of Stroat, who she had known since the age of 15.

Returning to the district in 1935 the couple lived for a while at Denhill Farm Cottage, Tidenham Chase.

In January 1940 they moved to The Priory where they farmed until retirement, afterwards living at Steam Mills and then Newnham. Mr Reeks died in 2002.

Mrs Reeks’ big day was celebrated with family and friends. She said her card from The Queen helped to make the day a very special occasion.

It is presumed the year of Lucy Reeks’ death was 2012 & 2002 in the original article was a typo.!

Hi,

the original farm house, Stroat Farm House, having become far too large for the single couple, as the owners of the farm Sue and Vic now are, and as the main farmhouse required substantial work and modernisation it has been sold, to a young family.

The working heart of the farm has retreated up the drive to a position overlooking the old farm yard with a purpose built conversion of buildings and called Stroat Farm Granary Barn.

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

CHAOS On The A48 In Stroat Extended 20-Apr-2016 . 12-May-2016

CHAOS On The A48 In Stroat Extended 20-Apr-2016 . 12-May-2016
.
In posting this information from Gloucester County Council I am tempted to comment ‘what on earth did they expect in the first place’?
The Council points out that the A48 is one of the busiest roads yet it seems to have failed to realise just what chaos would result from closing the road!
I am astonished that the Council has so little understanding of this road when you consider the daily chaos that is found at the Sedbury/Chepstow end of the road every day of the week and not necessarily only at the two main rush hours of morning and afternoon!
It is also worthy of note that the A48 is recognised in some quarters as the most dangerous road in EUrope when measured by accidents and fatalities per mile driven – yet with gay abandon the Council authorises ever more houses to be built that will feed this chaos directly, where there are some 4-8,000 new homes to be built from Chepstow to Lydney giving a realistic additional 8-16,000 car journeys a day – let alone the additional delivers and service vehicles and expected rise in through traffic and lorries!
Then to exacerbate the problems when it is clearly stated by health and safety highway organisations that one of the biggest causes of accidents, where a single fatality has a direct cost to society of in excess of £250,000, selfish land owners and their parasites seek, by stealth, to capitalise on grant income by installing a wind farm strung out along the road, that will create huge impact on safety and will clearly be an ecological disater for generations to come.
It is worthy of note that such Wind Turbines as that which is being forced on the effected community of Stroat are being forced through planning in the most duplicitous manner and directly contra the professional advice of the Forest of Dean’s own planning officers! For further details CLICK HERE
Clearly as little thought goes into major planning issues as has been displayed on the smaller scale; shown by the debacle of  planning a total road closure, and then seemingly only issuing notices to those actually within the closed area; rather than advertising the closure to all those effected, in a responsible manner, for weeks if not months in advance!
Consider the fact that neither Wyvern Garage at the Woolaston end of the closure and Wibdon Farm at the other – both substantial businesses just yards outside the closure – did not even receive the courtesy of notification!
The apparent indifference of the executive level who are generously PAID to provide such services seems woefully lacking in forward thinking, as OUR service providers, whilst endlessly raising rates and taxes year on year from ever large numbers of homes and businesses!

Council issues statement after Forest of Dean roadworks chaos

By CitizenNews  |  Posted: April 20, 2016


Gloucestershire County Council has responded to reports of traffic chaos in the Forest of Dean

Gloucestershire County Council has released a statement after a surprise road closure caused traffic chaos in the Forest of Dean.

The full statement from the county council is as follows:

‘Following congestion this morning, the resurfacing works on the A48 at Stroat between Tidenham and Woolaston will be changed to avoid rush hour queues.

Resurfacing work began today (20th April) to improve the A48 at Stroat. The A48 is an important road for thousands of commuters and businesses, but following years of heavy use the surface is in need of repair.

Whilst a full closure was initially planned to reduce the length of time the works took, following concerns from local residents, the scheme has been changed to cut rush hour congestion.

To carry out the work safely it is necessary to close the road to traffic between 9.30am and 3.30pm each week day.

Two diversions are in place, one for heavy goods vehicles via the A4136, Monmouth, the A40 and A449 and another for lighter traffic via the A4136, Monmouth and A466 however local traffic may know of shorter routes.

The A48 is a major route through the county and the area is already becoming congested so Gloucestershire County Council is asking drivers to plan their journeys in advance and to avoid the area at closure times if at all possible.

The road will be open at all other times so traffic will not be affected during the morning rush hour, in the evenings, at night times or at weekends.

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways said, “I was very concerned to hear about the disruption in parts of the Forest of Dean this morning. The works on the A48 are an important part of our investment into improving the condition of Gloucestershire’s roads – but this has clearly caused more problems than expected. From tomorrow, the works will only be operating outside peak hours. Whilst this will extend the duration of the scheme, we hope that it will lessen the impact on local residents and businesses.”

“Our resurfacing work will really improve this part of the A48 and we’re doing all we can to minimise delays.”

The county council appreciates that the diversions are long but legally must publicise an alternative route using equivalent A roads. People living locally, driving cars and small vans are welcome to use other alternative routes that they are aware of.

Arrangements have been made for local school buses, and access will be maintained for emergency vehicles.

The work is now scheduled to finish on Thursday 12th May and once complete, the new surface is expected to last for more than 20 years.

For enquires please call 08000 514514.’

Surprise road closure causes traffic chaos in Forest of Dean

By CitizenNews  |  Posted: April 20, 2016


Traffic is piling up in the Forest of Dean after a ‘surprise’ road closure

Surprise roadworks on a busy road is causing traffic chaos in the Forest of Dean.

Apparently without warning, the A48 between Brookend and Chepstow has closed for roadworks.

And diverted traffic is piling up in the area as large vehicles struggle past each other on narrow country lanes.

One Citizen reader contacted us through Facebook, he said: “If anyone is travelling down the A48, be aware, they have closed the road in both directions from Wyvern Car Sales, Brookend all the Way to Chepstow.

 

“There were signs from further up this morning saying the road was being closed from 07:30 20/04/2016 until 06/05/2016.”
He added: “This was a bit of a shock because I drive on that road everyday and there were no such signs at 08:30 yesterday morning warning us.

“Not sure if the it is a complete closure between those dates or if it is open in the evenings.”

And on social media people have posted pictures of the traffic pile-ups.

News Feed

Tidenham chase snarl ups due to diverted traffic. Large vehicles struggling to pass each other on narrow road. Single track lanes suffering also. Madness!

From Sue Adams.Forest of Dean News Centre's photo.

At 5:30pm on Wednesday, Gloucestershire County Council issued a statement to say resurfacing works on the A48 at Stroat between Tidenham and Woolaston will be changed to avoid rush hour queues.

Councillor Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways, said:
“I was very concerned to hear about the disruption in parts of the Forest of Dean this morning. The works on the A48 are an important part of our investment into improving the condition of Gloucestershire’s roads – but this has clearly caused more problems than expected.
