  1. Looking at buying a listed property, it looks like quite a bit of work has been done over the years without permission and it's general state of repair means it needs quite a lot of work doing. Owner says the council just aren't interested and have never been to see the place even when asked, he seems genuine.. if you have a listed property, how have your found the council? Last thing we want is to buy it and then get told loads of things have been done and we have to put it back to how it should be! Cheers
  2. Any electricians out there? just after a rough cost to rewire a large old house. 3000sqare foot, about 16 rooms! and it's old! thanks
  3. I don't think meadowhall expected it to get that bad last night which still leaves them no excuse for sending out a press release at 9am this morning to say they were open as usual. I came off at j34 gone ten this morning and it was blocked by policeso encouraging people to try and get there was ridiculous!
  4. Anyone else lost all the HD channels after re-tuning freeview the other day? That is on the south yorkshire region, re-tune and select east yorks and Lincolnshire and I get them all back. Has the South yorks transmitter had it's service cut?
  5. Looking for recommendations, think my cats teeth need looking at, any recommendations? I've used Highfield vets on London road before and thought they were fine but that was a few years ago. Live in burngreave so ideally something reasonably Central Ish!! Thanks
  6. Thee work should not change, I cover an area with multiple and changing sites so not at one location. The service desk I am sure will all lose their jobs as the new company will have a big one in India. They will still need the mobile guys on the ground though in the UK unless they have their own existing engineers, which is a worry as being told you are safe until March seems to imply that after march, who knows! We don't even know the name of the company yet so can't even look to see what other contracts they have to see how they operate. In theory with Tupe I assumed that we would be OK for a year, but the wording implies otherwise...
  7. Thanks everyone, all info greatfully received! I expected to get screwed over after a year but the wording saying your job is safe until March was a surprise. Sounds like they already plan to restructure immedietly. The roles will still exist, it is the IT function for a 10000+ employee company so someone has to keep it running! We have not been given redundacny as an option, we are in the pot of people being tupe'd. Other people are in a pot with role mathcing and redundancy but we don't have a choice.
  8. So my job is being outsourced, the whole team is being tupe'd to some as yet un-named company, supposedly at the start of December. We have just received an email saying that The outsource provider will be contractually committed to retain staff transferred under TUPE until their service area transitions from as-is to the new outsourcer operating model/service. This means that all staff in scope for TUPE will have job security until at least march. Long-term employment opportunities with the outsource provider will be discussed during the collective and individual TUPE consultation, including wider opportunities within the outsource provider organisation. I thought TUPE meant they could not change your terms and conditions for a year? The work will still be there so they can't just replace us with cheaper versions or give it to their existing staff. (assuming they have people in their business doing similar roles). Guess as the moment we just have to wait and see as we have zero information but this does sound like after 3 months they plan to screw us over! Anyone know much about it? thanks
  9. Where are your getting that info from? They aren't set to that most of the time, people often do 90 or more and they don't go off. Most reports say they are only active when restrictions are in place but every now and again you get an Article in the mail or similar saying police forces are going to turn then on all the time and set then to 70! I drive up past Leeds often and a fair proportion of people are easily exceeding 80 and 90. The guy at work is the only person I know who had been caught by one when it was not active, I was seeing if anyone else had been.
  10. Has anyone had a fine for going past the M1 south camera at j34 when there were no active speed restrictions ? Joining the motorway northbound I saw it flash quite a few people yet the gantries were not active. Someone from work was caught by the one a j33 a couple of months ago on a Sunday when no restrictions were in place. They don't seem to be active all the time though as people fly past it at higher speeds all the time. No 'don't speed then' comments please,. Thats not what this is about!!
  11. Watched Trapped season 1 and now watching the Bridge. Trapped was quite enjoyable but nothing ground breaking. Enjoying The Bridge more
  12. Depends on the car and engine. Some are great, some it won't really help.
  13. I want to stick cameras at the front and rear of the house to alert of intruders. The cameras will sit on the windowsill inside and point out. The sort that have an app that pushes notifications to my Android phone via an app, if someone walks up to the house it will record and alert my phone. There are hundreds on Amazon, most about 30/40quid and the cameras seem to get good reviews and seem easy to set up but the apps are often rubbish! Anyone got one they can recommend that actually works? I don’t want to have to pay for a cloud subscription either if I can avoid it. If it can email pics to my google account that would be ideal. After a spare of burglaries in the area I would like to be alerted when people are snooping around my house! This sort of thing.. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Veroyi-Camera-Surveillance-Security-Function/dp/B07MG4XB6F/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_sims?ie=UTF8 ieGeek 1080 IP Camera Veroyi DM-01 IP Camera APEMAN WiFi Camera 1080 I want to get an external one as well if you have a good one of those to recommend. This has been recomended.. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07C75C47B/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07C75C47B&pd_rd_w=MlfME&pf_rd_p=e2bfafb5-111e-4906-b089-5d691a51d45f&pd_rd_wg=9JvtD&pf_rd_r=3TMCWY4T5KH3E5G8P7JS&pd_rd_r=97a401ad-6032-11e9-8790-4f31a93d3f06 Thanks 😊
  14. I want a basic wifi camera to stick on the windowsill so it detects people walking up to the house, then pushes alerts to my phone via an app. (Android) There are literally hundreds on Amazon, most have good reviews but the apps that go with them are often pretty awful. I would like one that does not need a paid account for cloud storage, my google email will be fine as I won't be keeping the data and don;t need 24/7 recording. Anyone got one they can recommend? I don't mind spending more for a better one but they all seem basically the same! A few that I've looked at on Amazon, [NEW UPDATE] ieGeek 1080 IP Camera Veroyi DM-01 IP Camera APEMAN WiFi Camera 1080P Thanks
  15. So May is planning on bringing her deal back for a fourth time next week πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜¨
  16. Haha, brilliant, even after all this time you're still clinging to some dilusion that we have wasted our superior bargaining position and we should have demanded what we want as if we were some colonial superpower that people should bow down in front of! So what would you have done the would have had the rest of Europe quivering in their weird foreign boots?? The EU have been pretty consistent..
  17. This made me laugh πŸ˜‚ https://www.thedailymash.co.uk/politics/politics-headlines/i-only-smirked-because-it-was-fking-hilarious-says-bercow-20190319183707
  18. Various flood warnings in place, just wondered if the Don had breached anywhere?
  19. Haha, brilliant!! The majority of the UK will be significantly worse off, with the poorest hit hardest, and you try and spin this into a positive by pointing out that women will be approximately Β£7.00 a year better off if the UK ditch VAT on sanitary products? Well, that's converted me, who cares about food prices going up, billions lost with companies leaving the UK, massive queues at ports, billions spent duplicating all the systems we share with the EU that we lose access to, job uncertainty, lack of trade with other countries as none of the promised trade deals are in place, NHS significantly worse off etc etc etc, it's all good cos women save seven quid a year....
  20. Any more info? it doesn't really tell me enough to want to book it!
  21. Looking to go to Greece for a low cost holiday, we usually got to Parga as it has everything we want but thinking we should try somewhere different. I've been told Rhodes is nice by people who have been but not for years! Not got kids and don't want to spend the week sat on a beach so looking for a place that has stuff to see and do. The old town is supposed to be interesting so probably stay around there if we go. I've also been told it's expensive... We would like somewhere with a nice harbour where you can sit and watch the world go by, reasonably priced food, not bothered about shopping or owt. Might rent a car if the rest of the island has stuff to see. Anyone been? Do you recommend it? what do you like about the place? Thanks
  22. Low low salt and sugar one is good, I prefer it now, the normal ones tastes far too sweet. Same as giving up sugar in tea, it;s what you get used to!
  23. Awful that a 14 year old lad has been killed in what the police believe is a targeted attack but at 14, why was he driving around London on a Moped? Has the law changed?
  24. Thanks all, I think the six year old policy is mean, it's not like I'm driving around in a rusty MK2 escort with different colours doors and the exhaust hanging off!! It just means I'm forced to sell a perfectly good car and spend even more money on another one! Sounds like leasing is expensive unless you want a small basic car and if I wanted one of those I might as well get a company one! Anyone want to buy a brilliant 530 touring in a few months!!
  25. Never heard of personal lease, thanks, shall check it out
