Stop Press


Not everything in  Trelawnyd is hen and scone related....sometimes the real world visits us in spades....Just got off the phone with an affable despot from down the road, who informed excitedly that a village house had been badly damaged by fire last night!
( click here to see the local Daily Post)
The twist in the story's tail....is that the house was apparently filled to the bleeding gunnels with cannabis plants.!!!.....and an elderly man living in the adjacent house was taken to hospital with what was referred to as " smoke inhalation"
I suspect the old guy has actually been " bonged out of his head" and is probably lying fifteen feet above his hospital bed as we speak.

  2. Hahaha!

    I'll bet several neighbors got to feeling a bit silly after the fire. And I'll bet even hospital food will taste good to the elderly dude once he wakes up ;)

  7. Ha ha! A village of stoners!

    Maybe you should post mars bars through all the folks letter boxes so they don't take to their motor scooters and end up in the ditch laughing their heads off! You and Chris could do a roaring trade in mars bars and egg and bacon baps as they whizz by on the way to the garage! Gonna call it Cheech and chong town now! lol

    By any chance were the people locked in and Vietnamese? this happened to my friends house, that was rented out. they had made holes in the ceilings and had huge silver tubes going through the floor up stairs. Once the police had finished with the place, there were huge plastic tanks of the most fabulous fertiliser left in the house. you should have seen the veg in her garden last year!

  9. Did the fire and subsequent smoke attract a lot of by-standers/potheads?

    1. Our judge is such a strict old biddy... She would have sniffed it out at 100 paces

  13. If the locals had known about the cannabis plants, I suspect they wouldn't have been in the house very long! And the streets of Trelawnyd would be full of stoned residents walking into lampposts....

  17. If they kept the windows shut and didn't smoke any there, then no one would be the wiser. Wonder how the fire got started? I looked at the article, and from some of the photos, it looked as if there were a for sale sign at the house. One would have a hard time showing it to potential buyers with houseplants like those.

  24. Good morning John,
    How can so much happen in such a quiet little backwater village like Trelawnyd? It makes our town sound so dull. I bet there are still crowds hanging around the house even now, trying to get one last whiff.

  25. I knew it!!! Trelawnyd is an absolute den of inequity!

  26. The house next door to us is empty......just asking for a cottage industry.

  27. Well that explains a lot

  28. We had a fire in our village and an unoccupied bungalow burnt down - no plants in it though - things certainly happen in your part of the world.

  29. Gosh, your village is a thrill. Nothing so exciting here...
