I ended up at lister (Hosp) for most of yesterday (Thursday 17th June) - feeling better now - sorry to all those I missed on Thursday! Taking it easy today, before out with the Tiger tomorrow!

The pub that I lived above in Dundee has been sold (again - didn't know it had reopened!), but it looks like they are trying to get the flats too! That should resolve the issue of eeach flat having five seperate addresses on the voting roll and/or Postal Address File...and to show how confused DCT are, they've said it's in Constitution Street, not Road!!!

Loss to city’s live music scene as The Bread closes
A popular pub in the heart of Dundee has closed after the owner of the building decided to sell up.
The Bread on Constitution Street, which was also a prominent live music venue, has shut down as owners Trust Inns prepare to sell the premises to Abertay University.

The pub, which sits in the middle of the university campus, is a long-established name in Dundee and was popular with students and music lovers.

Local businessman Kenny Nicoll, who was the licensee at The Bread for the past year, confirmed the pub had closed and admitted it was a loss to the local music scene.

“I only took it on for a year to see how it would go,” he said.

“It worked quite well as a venue when you got the right bands in and in that respect the closure is a pity.

“It’s been sold to the university so that’s it as far as being a pub is concerned.

“As far as I’m aware they haven’t renewed the licence, so it’s the end of an era for a long-established Dundee pub.”

A spokesman for Abertay said the sale was still to be completed and the university has no definite plans for the building.

“We are waiting for Trust Inns to confirm arrangements with regard to their tenant first,” he said. “As for plans, we haven’t yet decided what to do with the building.

“It is surrounded by our campus on three sides, so when the chance to acquire it came up it seemed like a good opportunity that might not come round again.

“The deal isn’t concluded, so there’s no definite timescale for transfer of ownership.”

There are several privately owned flats above the pub and it is not known if the university is trying to acquire them too.

The news follows the closure of several high profile pubs in Dundee recently. Both the Old Horseshoe Bar and The Waterfront Bar have closed this month.

Trust Inns is part of the Hemway Group, led by millionaire businessman Trevor Hemmings.

So, this is what I've been working on... and is now starting to take shape!

Tiger Line Buses are introducing a New Service T5 on Monday 9th August 2010.

Amersham, Underground/National Rail Station
Chesham Broadway
Lye Green
Rushmore Lane
Whelpley Hill (selected journeys only)
Bovingdon Market (Saturday market hours only)
Bovingdon, HMP The Mount (visiting hours only)
Bovingdon, Chesham Road hail & ride
Bovingdon, Halfway House
Box Lane
Hemel Hempstead Railway Station
Hemel Hempstead Town Centre
Hemel Hempstead Bus Station

St Albans, St Peters Street
St Albans, Railway Station Interchange

Hatfield Galleria Outlet
Hatfield Town Centre (Asda and Gracemead House)
Hatfield, Market Place
Hatfield, Railway Station Interchange

Service T5 will operate hourly, Monday to Friday daytimes, and two-hourly on Saturdays. The launch of this service will be concurrent with some new ticketing deals.

To get Service T5 off the ground, we have acquired five Leyland Tiger/Alexander Q type dual purpose buses, from Ulsterbus. Our numbers have not yet been applied to them, but we anticipate that they will be
Our Number – UB Number – NI Registration
W65 – 1372 – UXI 1372
W66 – 1375 – UXI 1375
W67 – 1376 – UXI 1376
W68 – 1377 – UXI 1377 (corrected!)
W69 – 1384 – WXI 4384

These have to be refreshed, COIF’d and re-registered (at the discretion of the staff who will decide on the day if they keep NI plates, or get local ones). They will be painted in a more prominent version of the Tiger Line colours, now to be predominantly orange. Some photos...

At the same time, we registered a change to Service T2. I was reluctant to make further changes to this route, that has already been changed three times this year. However, West Herts College is about to close the Cassio Campus site. With that in mind, we have submitted a change to remove our variation through the Cassio Campus, with all buses running via the new Watford “super Campus”. At the same time, some minor tweaks and changes were made. Further details to follow.
