Welcome to Kingsway Village

Sunday, August 12th, 2007

Hi and welcome to Kingsway Villagers, a website for residents of Kingsway Village, BY residents of Kingsway Village, Gloucestershire.

The site was launched in early August 2007.

My name is Clive Barton and I live at 35, Thatcham Avenue. I moved to Kingsway in November 2006 with my partner Angelina, our daughter Phoenix Rose, my sons Michael, David and Richard, and my step-son Cheyenne.
I like the place and the people so much I decided to create this site.

Angelina will be known to many of you as an (ex) local Avon representative and sales leader. She also ran Baby Sign Language Classes at the Quedgeley Community Centre in the past, (Handy Expressions is now an online Baby Sign Language resource).

Kingsway residents can call in at the above address, or contact me on 01452-722965 if you would like to get involved, contribute pictures or information, or advertise your services.

    Hi Rebecca,

    Nice website (love your first post) and thank you for posting here. I have added your website to our Local Contacts & Services page.

    You are very welcome (when you’re ready) to add a post about your website, your inspirations for launching it, what it offers, etc (with a link) and you are also more than welcome to link to us.

    Welcome to Kingsway 🙂



    After struggling to find other mums in the area and what to do with the children when we first moved here, I decided to create a little website for Kingsway families to connect up and find each other. It also displays a list of local family related events that everyone can add to.

    It’s brand new so hasn’t many members yet!
    Would you like to link to it from your site?

    Hi Clive

    My name is Claudia Adams and I am a massage Therapist.
    I would like to advertise a ‘Free Christmas Massage’ which it will take place on the 30th of November and 7th of December. It is also to let people know about Holisticure – Holistic Massage Therapy in Marham Drive, Kingsway. Is it possible to do that? How can advertise in here? I have started to deliver some flyers.
    Thank you Claudia

    (Editors Note: I dealt with this by contacting Claudia privately… Hence no reply above)!

    Hi Al,

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    I have suspended the post in question and will email you about it on my return home tomorrow (evening).

    Meanwhile, if you have any further thoughts you can either post them here or email me (clive.barton@sky.com).

    If you wish you can also send me an email for Lja, and I will forward it on my return.



    I am not happy at all. Just read a post by Lja which is nothing more than lies.

    We have only just arrived back from a long holiday (over a month) and while my whole family were out of the UK, Lja claims on the public formum that we disposed of her dead cats body and then went on to abuse my family and warn others of not bothering to chip their animals as we would throw the dead bodies away and then went on to ask the question what my family would do of we came across a human body. I find this very upsetting as it was only my wife and I who helped a dying tramp in the city of Gloucester as other members of the public literally walked & stepped over his dying body as it lay in the street. Yet her personal attack claims that we would just discard a human dead body.

    I find the comments very damaging and do not feel that I should have to defend myself or my family for the lies and deceit of lja’s comments.

    Furthermore she claimed that she contacted QUVL and they said they collected the cat and took the cat to Manor Farm. Therefore please can you get the name and number from the QUVL contact that she ‘apparently’ spoke to. I can then follow up the ‘story’.

    I really am not happy about the post and request that you either look to ban the author or they offer a full apology as I am very upset about this damaging character attack on myself and my family.

    I am very angry and request that this complaint is given a hasty follow up.

    I am available to meet with this Lja to sort out and am available any day/ or evening next week.

    Please can you update me as a matter of urgency on this.



    Hi Clare,

    I’ve added the event to our Diary Dates page and added your post (thank you)… I also edited your post (above) to link to the post about the event.


    Morning Clare,

    Would you have a flyer for this event?

    If so, add it to our Kingsway Village Facebook Page too. I would be happy to pass it onto the respective Housing Associations within the village and Council so they can include it onto their websites for tenants to equally be aware, and or take part too.


    Please could you add this to the dates for the diary please.
    Kingsway Primary School Fete and Football Tournament

    Thanks so much,

    (Edited by Clive – added link to post).

    Hi Clive no problem No rush I will await your email. Merry Christmas and I hope things are better for your wife and family in the new year.

    Hi Mark,

    I’m very sorry for not replying to you yet… I was going to email you about this and intended to do it days ago… but stuff keeps cropping up and I keep having to put it off!

    (My wife has been poorly for most of this year and what with Christmas and the kids and everything I’m wayyy behind right now) 😳

    I will email you as soon as I can.
    Please forgive the delay.

    Merry Christmas,

    Hi Clive.
    I would like to advertise on this site I do have an advertisement in PDF or JPG format and also a 10 second video advert if this is possible. I am looking for a permanent placement or something much like the android tablet add you have running on this page.
    Is it possible to have a permanent place down the side of the home page and a listing with link to my website in the local business section?
    Kind regards.

    If you wish to comment / leave feedback regarding the above, (in response to the recent letter from the County Council), please go HERE.

    Hi poppy,

    You can’t delete it.

    It doesn’t contain any personal details (except for the email address you signed up with, and that isn’t accessible to anybody else but me).

    Just stop using it!

    I wish to delete my account/profile on Kingsway Villagers but there don’t seem to be any links to do so. Help appreciated!

    Hi poppy,

    I’ve replied to this in your “pending” post (added yesterday). If you go to the admin’ area and look at your posts you should see it. Click on the “edit” link and you will see my reply and you can add a comment back and save it by clicking the “publish” or “save as pending” buttons.


    How can I remove my profile and posts from Kingsway Villagers website?


    On 26th April you created a post called “Property Rental Scam”.

    On 4th May I sent an email about the post – to the email address you used in your registration here (gmail.com).
    I haven’t yet received a reply (which is why your post hasn’t been published).

    If you want me to publish the post please reply to my email – or post here if there’s a problem with that email address.


    Hi DWH,

    The list of Developers includes details of those who have built here previously, (for residents still experiencing issues), but I have made things a little clearer on the developers page and removed the expired website link.

    Thanks for your contribution 🙂


    Could you possibly remove David Wilson Homes from your list of developers as we currently do not have a development at Kingsway, which is misleading some people.

    Many thanks,


    Hi Butterflies,

    Advertising rates are here.

    [April 2015: Business advertising is now free.]

    I have emailed you with these details too.


    Hi I would like to get some information on what you charge for advertising??
    I have set up my own treatment room over in Quedgeley and I am looking to get more advertisement.

    Please could you email me.

    Thank you

    Hi Clive

    I have organised a Pamper and Christmas Shopping Evening to raise funds for a local parent and toddler group (I have posted details about this on the site) and just wondered if it would be at all possible for you to add our poster for the event to the Kingsway Villagers site?

    Email me at mu32u_pamperevening@yahoo.co.uk to let me know,

    Many thanks


    Hi Steve,

    Yes I am. I will drop you an email ASAP (may be a few days as I am officially “on holiday” for 2 weeks)!

    It would be great to have another volunteer for the RA; the more the merrier (and easier – lol).


    PS: I can get your email address from my admin’ area, so I took it off your post… (save you getting added to somebody’s email spam list – lol).

    Hi Clive,

    Are you still looking for someone to sell advertising space?
    Drop me an email I will see what I can offer.
    I am meeting up with Barry next week to discuss joining the RA.

    Hi WrightyJ,

    I’ve no idea, you have the same access as all our other members, so it should work ok.

    Your first comment would be held for approval, but I haven’t seen one, (this comment was added as a post, so I converted it to a comment for you).

    If you tell me which post(s) you are struggling to reply to, I’ll figure it out.

    This site is so hard to use, I am unable for some reason to reply to some posts on this web page. Why is this?

    Hi Gavin,

    Details added to our local contacts & services page.

    Good luck Olivia 😀


    Hi Clive,

    Could you add my daughter Olivia to the babysitting services section please?

    She’s 16, very reliable and has recently completed a babysitting training course which included paediatric first aid.

    She is available most evenings and weekends and can be contacted on 01452 881955.


    Hi Clive,
    Thanks for submitting my “lost cat” post and the offer of displaying a photo. I cant figure out how to get a photo to you though. Can you help please?


    Hi Hannah,

    I’ve sent you an email about this.
