  1. I booked a taxi this morning to go into town (city taxis) when the taxi arrived I was a little unsure about getting in as it was an ordinary saloon car (no city logo anywhere) I dont know if it had a taxi plate on the back, the driver wasn't wearing a face mask, which I have now found out i sn't mandatory for drivers? only passengers. I told him where I wanted to go and which way to go, he made quite a few detours on the way and I asked why he wasn't going the usual way to which he said this was the quickest way, I could see the meter was going over what I normally pay and when we got to town the fare was over a pound more than normal fare I told him this and he said didn't believe me. I have contacted City Taxis to complain the operator didn't want to know . So it will be a different taxi company next week
  2. Many thanks I will get the mesh and get someone to put it over when the little blighters have gone, thanks for the tip
  3. I am over 80 so would be unable to reach, to be honest I dont feel safe using a step ladder after so many falls I have watched them and they are going through the little holes in the air brick so it cant be blocked off
  4. I have just noticed a lot of wasps around the air brick under my bathroom window, can anyone tell me the approximate cost for spraying or removal and who to contact. many thanks
  5. thanks for your reply, I have checked speeds and it is 1.4 download and 0.8 upload, Sorry forgot what talktalk quoted speed as when I took contract out, I have rung them many times and they have just fobbed me off with offers of half price offer for 3 months(must have got my date of birth on record) I dont have any family who can help me out , but when price went to. £27 per month I knew I had to make a stand. I dont use land line very often Any more advice for me would be welcome
  6. Yes I am out of contract, my mistake. Can anyone help me I have contacted BT and the prices quoted are both 24 month contracts, Essential ,£24.99 33-36Mb and Fibre 1, 46-50Mb £27.99 (with 700 mins free calls per month £34.99) I only have a laptop and smart TV and as I am not really up to date (over 80) can you advice me which would be the most suitable option for me
  7. I am looking to finally change from TalkTalk, cost keeps going up and up and try to talk to a real person is almost impossible, I have looked at deals from BT and virgin media, can anybody give me any feed back on these providers, Many thanks.
  8. My understanding is that pharmacies are paid for each item dispensed and the home delivery service was part of the service provided by the pharmacy itself to people who were unable to collect due to health reasons,
  9. Thanks for your comment, I am unable to get more exercise!! that is the reason I have to have medication delivered along with a lot more elderly and sick and disabled we don't all have family to collect for us
  10. Just had medication delivered from Lloyds pharmacy and from October they are now making a charge of £60 for 12 months for a single delivery of medication or £90 for household per year. Just wondering if this is all pharmacies or just Lloyds
  11. Can anyone tell me if charity shops are now accepting donations and is the one on the gallery above Morrisons at Hillsborough still open, Many thanks
  12. If it is Sky protect, they ask you to state your name, if you ignore this the call goes through anyway, my friend had sky I never stated my name and the call went straight to ringing
  13. All calls I receive on my landline numbers that are not on my call list I just send to answer machine they soon end the call, if genuine callers they leave a message and I call them back it works for me,the other morning had 5 scam calls in half an hour.
  14. Sorry to say not every Tesco Spital Hill Branch on Saturday, you had to fetch a trolley yourself from bay, when you got in (no checks on how many customers were going in) you could clean trolley yourself and they have now removed the one way system in store so you are now meeting people head on going just where they want, I must say I didn't feel comfortable being close to other shoppers.,
  15. To all NHS workers and everyone else trying to keep the country going in this very trying time thank you
