@CllrTonyPage @readinglabour Cancel plans to switch off the traffic lights at the Broad St/West St junction

Click here for Petition to reinstate the traffic lights at Broad Street/West Street Junction.

Elderly and disabled people in particular would be put in danger. Generally, the loss of these lights would mean that pedestrians have to estimate whether or not they have time to cross the road before oncoming traffic reaches them. This is nerve wracking when you know that drivers may not allow for you to be slower than most.

In particular, blind people depend on the beeps that sound when the traffic lights are on green for pedestrians. Without those they are lost and have to depend on strangers who may know nothing about guiding them – nor care – to take them across. That at the same time as RBC is planning to cut spending on disabled adults supposedly in the interests of improving their independence!

Click here for Petition to reinstate the traffic lights at Broad Street/West Street Junction.

We are believe there has already been a fatality at Jacksons corner with a similar idea, but we haven’t seen any solid evidence of this, only in an article about the noise about the Broad Street turn off in this article from Get Reading, so until we get any kind of confirmation of it we will put it down to hearsay for the time being (I.e. an article from the reading post)

Tony Page has also given other controversial decisions such as in Shinfield Road http://www.getreading.co.uk/news/local-news/shinfield-roads-lights-safe-here-6248017 and agreeing to the building of flats next to one (and few) of the towns independent music venues (which we covered a in a previous post)

We would say find out all the facts for yourself. We are posting this as its a controversial decision, and the council need all the facts at their finger tips as regards to what people feel about the decision. If your unhappy with it we urge you to sign the petition, if on the other hand you feel it has benefited the town, let Tony Page aware. His direct email is tony.page@reading.gov.uk

@CllrTonyPage Campaign to stop development next to Facebar, Reading

For the partition please click through on this sentance
A very well run venue that is highly proactive on stopping disruption is subject to new block of flats being built next door. There is concern they will make noise complaints even though the developers are well aware its next to a nightclub.

The nightclub employs several staff giving well needed work. The club has been very proactive in cutting noise. There is now better sound proofing, and the door staff do regular checks around the building to check you cant hear it out side noticably.

The club is now scanning ALL ID including of the promotors & DJs as a way of helping counteract any security issues\trouble.

The club is also one of the safest venues in town. It is also one of the few independant music venues that is highly regarded locally.

For more information on the planned development check out this article

Acid Techno with Trooper & DJ Spliffy B, David Judda Oliver, Ray Von

★Trooper’s journey with dance music began in 1991 when he was just 16 years of age and was taken out by some older mates to legendary raves such as Elevation, Dance 91, Raindance, Fantazia, Yikes and Interdance, as well as Spiral Tribal and Bedlam sound system parties on the underground free party scene.

During this period, his passion for the music was fiercely ignited and he was introduced to mixing vinyl on the 1210’s by his mate DJ SDR, owner of Shoebox Records. From this point, there was no turning back.

A few years later in 1994, Trooper started getting involved with the local music scene and began working at Ruffhouse Records in Slough, who also ran the Menace sound system. Inspired by these times and meeting new people on route, Trooper started spinning tunes.

Always up for a party, he was given the title nickname ‘Trooper’ as he was always the last man standing and shortly established his turntable skills as ‘DJ Trooper’ on the underground party circuit, playing Jungle and Drum & Bass at various parties in and around London and the South East.

He also used to take a trip up to Music House in Holloway Road, London, and hang out with the top Drum & Bass DJ’s, who went there regularly to cut their latest tracks onto dub plate fresh for the weekend raves. Around this time, he also got involved distributing the ‘Ravescene’ magazine and writing party reviews for raves such as Telepathy, AWOL, Roast, Innersense and Jungle Fever.

Next step in 1996, Trooper and fellow music comrade, DJ SDR, started the record label ‘Freestyle Flava’, experimenting with different styles and beats in the studiounder the guise ‘Point 2’. They produced some great rockers including ‘Wait 1 Minute’, which was featured on Tony de Vit’s ‘Live in Tokyo’ album. In the studio, they also wrote Trip Hop and Broken Beats inspired by Ninja Tune club nights at the legendary Blue Note in Hoxton, London.

After taking a few years out at the end of the 90’s, Trooper returned to the dance floor in the new millennium and got involved with the Hard House scene. The hard beats and vibes reignited the fire in his rave heart, but something was definitely missing until he discovered the underground London squat party Techno scene and from that point it was full steam ahead.

Over the past 10 years, Trooper has gone from raver on the dance floor to playing on many sound systems including Freebase, E1S, Malfaiteurs, Manik, Storm, Hackney Sounds and plays regularly on the Stinky Pink, Hub and Krysis rigs as resident DJ storming the dance floor with his own take on Acid Techno, also enjoying pushing the speakers to the limits on various rigs at Frenchtek dropping the beats that captured his heart all those years ago. But with Trooper’s personal history of dance music and broad musical knowledge, you can also hear him playing a broad spectrum of sounds such as Old Skool 91/92 Rave, Hardcore, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Progressive House, Acid House, Breakbeat and Electro.

Over the last few years, Trooper has been working hard on the London party circuit, playing at club nights such as Smash Techno, Stay Up Forever 100, Stay Up Forever after parties, Philanthropy, Braingravy, Lucid, Soitiz alongside DJ artists such Chris Liberator, Aaron Liberator, DDR, Geezer, Gizelle Rebel Yelle, Rachel Rackitt, Sterling Moss, Birinight, DJ Ant, Jerome Hill, Thermobee, Tassid, A.P, OB1, Austin Corrosive and many more.

And on to top all of this, Trooper has recently returned to the studio, writing tracks with DDR – their track ‘My Face is Melting’ was released on the legendary ‘Hazchem’ label. Since then, he has been back in the studio with Steve Mills and ‘Geezer’ Guy Mcaffer producing tracks for future projects. So keep your ear to the dance floor and listen out for Trooper’s unique energy and sounds.

So there you have it, Trooper is an electric force to be reckoned with, and with his broad musical knowledge to keep you entertained, this music soldier is here to stay. And you know it’s party time when Trooper’s in the house, so you have been warned!
