Has anyone seen Sammy in the Berners Street/St George's Street area? He's all black, not very bright, but very affectionate in a "formulaic" way when hungry. By that I mean he doesn't actually love you, but he's heard that if he rubs round you a lot ... [ more ]

Can anyone recommend an electric bike or a shop which sells them. I've been to Halfords and was astonished that they don't stock them or seem to have any interest in them. I can find manufacturers and dealers on line of course but as the bikes cost ... [ more ]
I too have a powercycle from e bikes. I've had it for 4 years and it has never let me down. Reasonably priced too.
Halfords at euro park were really helpful. I bought mine from there last month in the sale for under £500, it's a fold up bike too. Nippy, attractive and lots of fun. Good luck

hi any body of a good cheep gardener
Earning a little extra doing a few hours a week as a gardener is probably ok at £10 per hour. If looking to become a full time self employed gardener then I see a number of issues with that rate. I am not in that trade but Joanna A is right about the ... [ more ]

Anyone heard why the post office on the corner of Surbiton Road and Bramford Lane is closed. It was closed yesterday and still not open today. No notice on door telling customers the reason or if and when it is likely to reopen.
Apparently it is closed as it is changing hands. I asked in the coop yesterday. No idea when it's reopening.

Can anyone recommend a local company for getting old doors dipped to remove old paint?
I used this firm last year and they were very good. Collected the items from my house and delivered them back a week later, finished to a good standard. I was pleased. http://oakdoorstripping.co.uk/contact.php
be aware though that the process of dipping can affect the glue in the joints and the doors can possibly go a bit wonky. ( one of mine did )

Yes probably waiting to move on to the air show where I believe an enlightened Judge has ruled that Tendering D.C. can't temporarily ban caravans and motor homes from the coast road.
That car park seems to be a popular place for travellers to go... it happened before. I can't help but suspect that actually the council has invited them there to mediate etc as it is pretty rare for travellers to choose a car park rather than a park ... [ more ]

We had a really heavy hailstorm in Castle Hill last night and the stones broke the roof of our conservatory in many places. Did anyone else get damage?
That's really interesting, Andrew H. and fascinating. I'm in IP1 and we had nothing. (Sadly my ability to use compass directions is truly limited hence the post code.)
We had hailstones in Gt Blakenham ( IP6 ) but no damage

Yes, we got it as well along Henley Road. We had to shut all the windows because it was affecting our breathing! Our thoughts were that it was a garden bonfire which was a bit antisocial on one of the hottest evenings of the year when most people had ... [ more ]
