  1. In an addition to my previous answer, according to Graces guide it was 1993 when James Neill changed the name to Neill Tools.
  2. I worked at Neill tools from 1967 - 1980. Moore & wrights were bought by Neill tools in 1970. Can't be more specific than this.
  3. I needed to buy some pet food which I do online. They were offering a new product which was... A PETSPRESSO COFFE E machine😀
  4. I agree with Waldo and others. She definitely wears the trousers.
  5. I was on a zoom meeting last evening and my camera was not working and neither was the microphone but I could still go ahead and listen to the spokesperson. I received a link to join the meeting and it loaded from there.
  6. I would always buy new. The company who you buy from should take the old one although they may charge.
  7. According to Wikipedia Stanley was born on 24th May 1926, with no mention of his death so I assume he still with us.
  8. If the material is not crucial then Toolstation sell plastic conduit 25mm dia in 2Mtr lengths
  9. I lived an Hawksley road for 15 years up to 1968 and as I recall there was a scrap yard behind Eagle garage and Melluish brothers adjacent to that.
  10. I agree the present story is new but why does everyone refer back to the original crimes of yesteryear.
  11. I'm disgusted the media is dedicating so much time to this person. What about the families of his victims having to see the story covered over and over again. Let's have a little more respect shown to them. There are more important issues at the moment rather than to cover a story which is over 30 years old.
  12. Try St Vincents. Below is from their web page. Do you have unwanted furniture or household items? Your donation really can make a difference to someone less fortunate. Our office is open Monday – Friday 8:30am -3:30pm please call 0144 270 3990 to arrange a collection.
  13. I have changed several times and not once have I been pestered to have a smart meter. I said no when I changed to the new supplier and not heard anything since. I read my own meters once a month and send it to them. They seem happy with the result. If the smart meters send info to the supplier on a regular basis then surely they have to employ someone to download and analise the results.
  14. If I can put my comment into the mix. We have been buying cement on and off for months now and the best and consistent price seems to be at B & Q at £4.02 per bag.
  15. We used Blinds2go for Perfect Fit venetian blinds and found them very reasonable. These fit onto our patio doors and were very easily fitted. The bracket supplied is pressed in between the glass and the rubber seal no problem. Just give them the dimensions of the window and they do the rest.
  16. Have you tried Jepsons on Est Bank Road
  17. I have batteries fitted at Morris Bywater on Pinstone street £5 last time
  18. i I hope you do not become one of 1.5% who do not recover should you contract it.
  19. I do not agree with increasing the speed limit on Penistone road. Not due to costs but safety. There are too many pedestrians on that particular road.
  20. I would have thought the pavement width on the stretch of road in question is wide enough for dedicated cycle lane. There would probably be more cyclists than pedestrians on there.
  21. I use parcel2go.com. They find the cheapest and you do not have to provide postcodes. Hermes is usually the cheapest.
  22. I can see it now, a company rep turns up with his samples in his panniers, goes into reception and takes off his cycle clips and helmet. Informs the receptionist he has an appointment with the buyer. What will they think?
  23. If cyclists are to have their own piece of road then why not tax them for the upkeep.
