Street parking.

When I worked for the MOD in the late 80's it was the civil services social club but I didn't know the area then and couldn't find it but no-one I knew went there or recommended it so I didn't bother with it.
I worked at BT research dept from 1972 and the Hollies was bought sometime around then. I think it was originally the Research Sports and Social Club (RSSC). At some we had to join the CSSC as well which was the civil services social club.

Dog Owners Again

Gary P in Rushmere St Andrew

Ratty with Mole

Slimline T in Broom Hill
Hi  Streetlifers, I have a real problem with moles! They are undermining the path up to the front door, the garden edging, the borders, the lawn, in fact my entire surroundings. Does anyone know a reliable mole catcher and how much they charge. Thank you

Slimline T
Thank you all for taking the time to reply. Much appreciated. I am currently trying to catch them myself but don't hold out too much hope. If no success after the weekend I shall start calling your suggested mole catchers.

We have them in our garden, husband has been tracking them and has been known to stand over a new mound waiting with a big rock in his hand! Have tried traps, bombs etc.

Fly tipping

Does anyone know the person who dumped empty paint tins in the rural area of Dobbs Lane, thus spoiling this area.  Maybe the person would like it if we dumped our rubbish near his house.

Did anyone else hear the fireworks in the Dobbs Lane area at 1.00 am this morning set off by idiots, waking everyone up? 
View 5 earlier replies
I don't mind private firework parties if they are well organised.  What I object to is fireworks going off in the early hours of the morning by idiots who more than likely are returning from clubs/pubs and think it's funny to wake the neighbourhood up.

I am getting fed up with being woken up with fireworks going off late at night. Fireworks should only be sold For organised displays. But the problem is people will always find away getting their hands on them.ūüė¨
