|NHS Pay Rises|
at 19:36 21 Mar 2018
About time! If the unions secure the deal then 100,000 staff will instantly earn more than the living wage. This can only work wonders for staff morale and retention as well as attracting new blood into a job sector that is losing employees hand over fist. The rises don’t go right to the top; I hope that there are some tough performance related pay targets for higher NHS management.

Excellent defensive shape
Away from home
Plan B successfully introduced mid game
Executed without two key players (regardless of what you think of them)
Outstanding away fans
One point nearer safety
Post any negative opinions elsewhere.

Fantastic scenes in the city centre this morning, the residents of Swansea and the surrounding area have done themselves proud. Tens of thousands of pounds raised for great causes up and down Wales. Well done to everyone involved, you deserve a lot of credit.

Anyone got a 2ft x 1ft (or thereabouts) SCFC flag they don't want and are willing to sell? The smallest Mr Flag ones are a bit too big.
PM me if so.

Did you see the size of that blade that first guy was carrying?
It was shades of Croccodile Dundee when he quipped "that's not a knife".
Lives ruined everyday by knife crime.

Are there any PS folk out there with children attached to a swimming club?
My two participated in the Carms & West Wales open today; incidentally the Swansea club had a strong turn out. The junior Cooper's represent Amman Valley SC as that's the pool that they learned to swim in (Llanelli pool was closed for refurb at the time). These open's are very well organised from the point of view of organisation, schedule, use of technology and so on. I've had a good day watching them all from poolside.

I loved Bob's interview on Game Of The Day.
He cares, he wants the best, his heart is in the right place.
Whatever you think of him, rejoice in 3 points tonight and for the remainder of the weekend.

It looks like another blank has been drawn in the search for the toddler. The latest investigation which involved excavation of the site around where he was last seen has failed to find any evidence. A tragic case for all involved.

Anyone been? I have some downtime whilst there in the coming weeks but have no idea about venturing out, where to go, and general level of safety. Feedback would be appreciated.

O_J on this site, AS Ken on the old site, and John in real life has sadly passed away.
John was a resident of Witney, Oxfordshire, however that hasn't stopped him following The Swans home and away for quite some years; he was a ST holder in East upper. John had bravely fought cancer for several years and it was only in the very recent past that it got in the way of his football support. Sadly he passed away peacefully at the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford yesterday.

|Velothon Wales - Please Support My Fundraising|
at 17:14 25 Apr 2016
Hello Planet Swans chums.
As some of you may remember from previous threads and topics I am participating in Velothon Wales 2016 which takes place on Sunday 22nd May 2016. My motivation for this is two fold namely i) get fit, but also ii) raise a little money along the way for a good cause. Point i) is not so relevant here and I'll summarise it by saying that I've lost a few pounds in weight over the past few months. More important than that though is my desire to raise some money to support a good cause or two. My Velothon entry fee is going direct to Bloodwise, a blood cancer charity. The 18,000 Velothon participants will raise around £1m for Bloodwise as a result of the efforts of 22nd May. However I would like to do something more and with that in mind I have researched the options for supporting our injured and maimed ex-service men and women. Most lately I have come across the charity called Blesma (British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association) and after some calls to them I have decided that this will be my charity of choice. I have no ties to the armed forces but this is a subject that I've grown an interest in following the horrors of Iraq and Afghanistan.
My Velothon involves me using leg power to negotiate 140km of South Wales roads at the end of May. My Velothon will also hopefully raise some cash towards those that have lost their leg power through the defence of our country. My sacrifice is nothing compared to those that benefit from Blesma.
So PS chums, can I kindly ask you to visit my Just Giving page via the link below and donate a small contribution? All donations will be willingly received with much gratitude.
Much love, COYS, Andrew.

I took the path behind the facility yesterday for the first time since it reopened. I guess that the temporary closure of the path was due to the construction work associated with the new training barn, out sheds, drainage systems etc. The entire complex looks a top class and worthy of any Premier League team or one with long term aspirations in mind.
Yes it's fair to say that some of our summer player investments haven't come good but there is always an element of gambling on transfers. The same cannot be said for Landore; results have been excellent and are as far away from training with the dog turds in public parks as you can possibly get. We should only applaud Huw and co for the work that has gone on in this area, it's building a legacy that will only increase our profile.
The next area to tackle... Off field marketing.
For the record I think the club are going about things in the correct order.
Well done SCFC!

(Or other frequent flyer scheme miles)
Has anyone done anything nice recently with these?
The BA scheme is slowly contracting in the way it awards points. However the spending experiences still look pretty good. I've not spent any in the last year so are the options as good as they once were and without restrictions in the small print?

Just completed mine and not as difficult as I first thought. The drive behind it is the lifestyle tweak that is required for the Velothon Wales that takes place in May.
- Alcohol intake = zero
- Visits to the Indian = 1
- Distance ridden = 498km
- Longest ride = 109km
- Weight lost = 14lb
