  1. This has been going on for years. My personal opinion is that if a pharmacist refuses to dispense something if it is against their beliefs then then they should not be doing the job or the pharmacy should at all times have someone else available to dispense these items. If you have chosen that career then you should be prepared to put your beliefs to one side. As long as you practice what you believe in during your own personal life then I can't see a problem. There are lots of things in life that many of us dont agree with but when you are providing a service to the public you have to keep your own views to yourself. For me its similar to when Jehovah's Witnesses come knocking on my door. I politely tell them that I dont agree with what they believe and ask them not to call again. I dont have a problem with what they believe as long as they keep it to themselves and dont try recruiting me.
  2. The shop mentioned by 'haddy' above is excellent for phone repairs, very reasonable prices and excellent repairs. We have used them for a long time and have been very satisfied with the work done.
  3. There is a chance of recovering the money it's just that some people will delay payment until the very last minute. The people we are dealing with have previously been in prison for fraud so I suppose them paying up depends very much on how well they want their reputation to be now. Hopefully they might be wanting to turn themselves around and pay up.
  4. Yes I'll get on to them next week. Trouble is alot of businesses are just allowed to carry on and its really unfair.
  5. Let's hope they pay up then! Thanks for clarifying whether I can name them on the forum or not Groose. Whilst I fully understand why, this company is free to keep ripping people off.
  6. I just thought that if someone was going to turn up it would need to be the person that is named on the court order.
  7. One interesting thing about the court hearing was that the defendant didn't turn up but sent his brother instead. His brother is an employee of the company but he was not named on the court order. The judge was made aware of this but carried on with the hearing anyway. I thought that the director of the company had to be there seen as though he was named on the court order. This man is now going to receive court documents through the post saying he has been ordered to pay up and he didn't even attend court. It just seems to be a strange way of doing things to me.
  8. I'm hoping they pay up without a problem, surely they don't want their business to get a bad reputation. Let's say i'll keep their name quiet if they pay up on time.
  9. Thank you. It's not been easy and we still await payment but we've got over one hurdle. They gave the other party 28 days to pay up so I will let you all know if we get the money.
  10. Result of court hearing - today we went to the court hearing and the judge ruled in our favour. It was a 3 hour battle but we got the result we wanted. Not sure if I can name the company in here though, moderators? Anyone wanting to go to the small claims court please be aware that it is not an easy process. I was told it was a process designed to be simple enough to do without the need for a solicitor but it's actually quite a difficult process.
  11. After a long battle, we are listed for a court hearing next week so i'll post the outcome of that. Win or lose the information might help someone else in a similar situation.
  12. I have seen one of these before in my garden but saw three yesterday flying around the shop's area at Newfield Green. This was around 8 pm last night and I have seen them tonight again. They make quite a noise though.
  13. I personally like Woodseats as I stop off for a cheeky drink in spoons. Having said that I do the rounds and go to Eccy Road, Broomhill etc. Depends what you're looking for but I tend to find something wherever I go.
  14. Confused! I am the registered keeper but the insurance is in my husband's name. We have never had any problems getting insured.
