I take ours to Hinds Jewellers in town, it costs just under £10 but you get free battery replacement for life of the watch, you just take the receipt in with the watch when you need the next replacement battery and it is free of charge.

Kim, I agree that many people are just resigned to the fact that those in authority will do what they want despite comments. However I think the tide is turning, and perhaps we need to remind those making the final decisions that they are paid ... [ more ]

There is really no need to go to the expense of hiring anyone if you are physically able to do it yourself. If it was an active nest it's a different story but wasps die off in late autumn.

Does anyone know where there is a Nisa shop in Ipswich which sells Heritage food. Their lasagne is really lovely, but now our Village shop has closed I cant find anywhere that stocks them now.
