    I must say that this update page has been most helpful especially with the buses running or not. Thank you Adver.

    Drove though Highworth this morning, snowing very heavily, roads passable with care, road out to Coleshill, difficult.

    Top marks to Barnes coaches who not only turned up this morning but also made it to Warneford via all the villages.

    The Real Librarian - I've removed your comment due to the profanity included (it doesn't matter that it was asterisked out, we're a family newspaper).

    Please feel free to repost excluding that particular word (and any others of a similar vein!)

    I have to say, roads all very good around Swindon today; thanks to those who gritted etc overnight. Apart from friday AM, it's been easy to get aournd town despite the weather. Well done all involved.

    No it's not China, but if someone provides a place where you can post comments for free (even though it costs them money) then they are entirely entitled to decide the standard of the content which should be allowed.

    Nobody forces you to visit this web site and my guess is that you're probably not an Adver customer.

    Why not set up your own web forum if you are so bothered? I'll post you some links to where you can do that for free!

    By the way, you have a rose tinted view of the past if you think that newspapers ever used the term "hero" in its literal sense.
