  1. As per above, Ridgeline do some really nice ones, warm and hard wearing.
  2. It's getting to the point where some dog owners will not walk their dogs in these areas for fear of their dog being attacked. It's a real shame for those owners who are older and more vulnerable.
  3. As per title. Looking for advice about these dogs. We have had problems with these dogs off lead charging and running up to other dogs. I've never heard about these dogs until recently, are they legal? It's just a matter of time before they attack another dog. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
  4. Yes , you're right the property is disregarded where it is occupied by a spouse, partner etc and/or in some circumstances a close relative
  5. Council tax increases to pay for social care, it won't just be funded via increased NI.
  6. The reality is that the vast majority of people will continue to pay for care even with the £86k cap. Those with long term are needs are more likely to reach the cap, the average length of time people stay in a residential care home is around 2 years.
  7. Just wait for council tax rises next April, some forecasts up to 5-6% increase.
  8. I had pancreatitis caused by gall stones, it's so painful. The mortality rate for acute pancreatitis is about 20%. After having gall bladder removed its now sorted. Diet has been modified including giving up alcohol.
  9. We are in the process of looking for a kitchen, as someone knows very little about this it's a bit of a nightmare. We want something which will last and can repaint etc. At the moment looking at a company called kitchen stori, does anyone know anything about this company? Would appreciate any advice on what to look out for. Ta
  10. Many thanks for all of your advice. We have again spoken to the neighbours. It looks like the rat is coming from a property which is empty. They plan to call in pest control, hopefully this will sort it out. Once again, thanks for your input, always value advice from pw members.
  11. Hope you can help me with this one. Next door neighbour feeds birds. There is a day which continually goes across the top of hedge across our garden into next door to feed in fallen seed etc. We have spoken to neighbours who have cleared up fallen bird seed and still continue to feed birds. The rat still comes across the top of the hedge too if hedge down into their garden to feed. My problem is how to get rid of the rat, if I put bait box near side of fence, is this likely to attract the rat? ( I suspect not), I don't have an air rifle and anyway to shoot would be close to house's. I don't know what to do next, I'm worried the rat will kill/ eat chicks of blackbird who are also building best in the hedge. Any thoughts which might help, ta.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
