  1. Bah - get well soon ! Flies are looking good.
  2. Reminded me of this incident from September, young driver again !
  3. I can't comment on the off road ability other than to say it made it up a wet muddy grassy slope better than a Range Rover or a Jeep Cherokee on our clay shoot. It also gets through a muddy gateway which left 2wd MPVs stuck ! However, when we have a child seat in the middle, this was the only vehicle we sat in which had enough room either side of the child seat for an adult to sit comfortably. We have teenage boys and a 9 yr old daughter. The X-trail's roof was too low for me to sit in the back seats and I am only 5`11", the RAV4 was too small across the back seats too. I was disappointed with the X-trail as it looked like a good contender. I do love my CR-V though, it has been a fantastic car for our needs. We take our sons fishing with all their carp gear, it copes with the potholed rutted tracks far better than our old fragile Citroen C4 GP. We have taken it abroad with three bikes, all their fishing gear plus the five of us with usual holiday luggage (roofbox full) and it was still doing 40mpg even with all that on board. There are a lot of 2WD CR-Vs for sale so you have to be careful to get the 4WD model - which has 160BHP I believe.
  4. Lol.. had some PMs recently so I thought it best to update the post.
  5. We are not looking for new members at the moment.
  6. I can't find how to edit this but latest update is that the club is not looking for new members at the moment.
  7. Get well soon ! Hope you are being treated well & can get back out there soon.

    Pension info

    https://register.fca.org.uk/ so you can check whether someone is registered May also be worth searching https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/data-insight/ombudsman-decisions to see whether they have been involved in any complaints. I am acting against a firm of IFAs who got involved in mis-selling an unregulated collective investment scheme. Fortunately they are still in business & their insurers are waiting at the end of the process with a chequebook.

    Take proper regulated personalised advice from a professional independent financial advisor. There are many good reasons to do so. Avoid the charlatans who promise you too-good-to-be-true returns in exotic investments all over the world. Everyone's circumstances are different. Pension freedoms mean that you could take charge of the whole lot yourself, and then leave it all to whoever you like in whatever proportion you wish when you no longer require it, rather than being bound by an annuity. This has created a feeding frenzy for fraudsters - but ignoring the opportunities can be akin to chucking the baby out with the bathwater. If you are in the South West I can suggest some reputable IFAs by PM.
  10. Visited the farm yesterday to drop off a card and a bottle. I was surprised to count six buzzards sitting on the ploughed field within a 50 yard radius of each other. As I left, I watched four more fly in and join the party. It was starting to rain. I've never seen ten buzzards just standing around together on the deck - anyone else shed any light ?
  11. I have been with BASC for 30 yrs... happy to support them especially when we are under such threats. As 243deer says above, GWCT research is really useful too so will have to dig deep & join them too.
  12. My Dad had his one done like this.
  13. No, I'll use my Merlin I think
  14. Check your home & buildings insurance for legal expenses insurance, you may be able to get cover for the legal fees of a county court claim with representation. Otherwise, the good old citizen's advice bureau website has a lot of information about this sort of thing. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/
  15. I get the impression that even previously competitive insurers, with which I have renewed for say 3-5 years, will overprice the policy if you haven't made a claim for a number of years on the basis that their luck may soon run out.
