I saw a vintage Crossville coach this afternoon, on Gloddaeth St. is this unusual ?   I searched Google for an image of the bus, and found the photo below, and I was surprised by the destinations shown, has it been here all the time, or making a return visit ?

Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Dave's Funniest Joke of the Fringe - now in its 11th year - has been won by Liverpool comedian Adam Rowe.
The joke came from his show Undeniable.

"Working at the Jobcentre has to be a tense job - knowing that if you get fired,....... you still have to come in the next day."

Quite often it's not the staffs fault for problems that arise,   I would imagine that they are working under pressure due to management or computer problems imposed on them.
I would imagine that when the paper tax discs were abolished the Government didn't consider the wider implications of their actions.   The DVLA should have had all the resources they needed already in place when the change over took place, but it seems that the DVLA was not geared up for the change as how else can anyone explain their abysmal record on collecting unpaid road tax

I rang DVLA this morning about the letter I received, they said it is fully taxed, the direct debit is in place with no problem, so all ok! This is the second time I've had a letter about an untaxed car when both times the cars have been taxed, they are always very helpful on the phone and I think it's another example of a government computer system that is not fit for purpose!

If anyone thinks that the criticism of the DVLA is harsh then they should read this link.   I'll say it again that the DVLA as a debt recovery Government agency is not fit for purpose and its actions or rather lack of them has cost the UK hundreds of millions of pounds.

No surprising the way DVLA is working (?) these days!

A few weeks ago a NIP arrived at my late mother-in-law's house (currently empty) addressed to someone we'd never heard of.  I contacted the Police to ask how they got that address and was told it came from DVLA.  The car was fairly new (67 plate) and had been caught doing 35mph in a 30mph zone at one o'clock on a Sunday morning.  I sent the letter back to the Police and received an acknowledgement suggesting I contact DVLA - I didn't because I had not kept details of the car.

Last week a letter arrived rom DVLA addressed to the same person as the NIP - stating that someone had tried to register the car in their name and DVLA were asking if it had been sold or stolen.  I rang DVLA was told they often have the wrong addresses, without giving any explanation, and I should send the letter back to them - they would then furnish me with a letter from DVLA so that I could show to anyone who may call to ask about the car!!!

As the car tax is soon due (1st September) I wonder where the renewal notice will go to!!!

I think the gentleman who lived in the house was a Mr Evans ,I believe he was an accountant or a solicitor in Llanrwst not certain , but his son Dewi farmed Gofer Farm in the Bryn Y Maen area .they also had a daughter I do not recall her name but will make enquires if it helps

I put in Gwyrfai into the online catalogue for Conwy Archives and there were 8 entries for Gwyrfai and the item below is similar to the others and the time was around the 1930's
