  1. As someone who's just moved I do sympathise. It's so hard to get surveyors, building reports, searches, removals etc. With hindsight, don't think it was a good idea to move during a pandemic.
  2. We have recently moved house, dealing with bt has been a nightmare. Numerous telephone calls, hours waiting on the phone, promised call backs never materialise. I can't believe how poor their customer care is.
  3. Hello, looking for any information about local clay pigeon shoots in Lichfield, south staffs area. Recently moved to the area and looking for any local clubs, nothing too grand, just any small local shoots in the area, Hope you can help. Ta.

  5. I get fed up of people who let dog off the lead without hardly any recall. The favourite line being from owners is 'it's okay they only want to play'. Yes, lockdown, has led to more people having dogs who simply haven't got a clue.
  6. Can't be have a Christmas jumper, can or Brut and soap on a rope instead?
  7. Use a long lead rather than retractable. There are plenty on the market. They can be a bit of a pain, constantly reeling and letting them out, some get heavy when wet. However they are much better than retractable ones and help with recall training.
  8. I may be wrong but is it important to know if they are tenants in common or joint tenants? Doesn't this effect any claims that can be made against the property and his share?
  9. We are in the process of buying a house with a soakaway for surface water drainage. Surveyor has reported that the garden Is drenched, admittedly after heavy rain. This is the first time I've come across soakaways and would appreciate any advice - pros v cons. What to look out for. Hope you can help, ta.
  10. Tories now 19% ahead according to most recent poll
  11. Horse tail or sometimes called maretail, it's a weed and difficult to get rid of
  12. We have a next box near the house, covered by virginia creeper. Anyway noticed about a month ago a wren going in the box regularly, then noticed another bird which now identified as coal tits going in the same box. This has been going on for last few weeks, which thought was strange. The frequency of visits increased when it became obvious there were chicks in the box. Initially thought there must be two nests - one in the box and another in the creeper. Tried looking for another next and could not find one. Got home last Thursday and found there were two chicks which had fledged from the nest
  13. Thought this was interesting obituary about an English gunmaker http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/12062188/William-Roper-gunmaker-obituary.html
