  1. Surestop stopcock + washer for bathroom tap.
  2. She didn't get any more quotes and she paid them cash. She now knows she did wrong but whats done is done. She says she will be more careful next time.
  3. Anyway - theres no way she would have these men do any more work for her and she certainly would not recommend these men to anyone else. Their reputation will catch up with them sooner or later.
  4. No - it sounded like they fitted my sisters job in between another one.
  5. Don't think there was much fuel or travelling time for them as they only live down the road from her - one of her reasons for choosing them.
  6. It took a little over an hour to fit a new stopcock and change a washer on a bathroom tap. She lives in Sheffield 10.
  7. Yesterday my sister had a plumber do a small job in the kitchen. There was actually 2 plumbers - a man and his son in law. The cost of the materials was £40. The plumbers also changed a washer on the bathroom tap. They charged her £160. I think this was far too expensive. What do others think.
  8. We had some Spanish students stay with us for a couple of months each Summer in the late 1990s but we can't remember the name of the organistaion that arranged their stays in Sheffield. They used to carry bright yellow backpacks! Did anyone else do this and can you remember the name of the organisation? Thanks
  9. What time does the Harley one start? I'm guessing it will be 7.00 ish. Thanks.
  10. I'm wanting to hire a small van for the day next Tuesday that will seat 4 adults. So far I've only managed to find a 3 seater. Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a 4 seater small van? Thanks.
  11. Has anyone on the Forum passed their driving test by going on an intensive driving course at Blackpool which includes accommodation. My nephew is thinking about doing this but they do sound very expensive. Thanks in advance.
  12. I've also attended the dentists on South Road since it opened in the early 80's. The staff have always been lovely (until now) and my dentist made me feel totally at ease. A few months ago I rang for an appointment and the girl on reception said the dreaded words 'sorry your dentist has left'. She made me an appointment with one of the new dentists, but I wasn't happy with the new one, even thought I only needed one of my teeth re-filling. I paid for my treatment as usual, then I received a letter saying that I still owed money for my treatment and that if I didn't pay soon the matter would be taken further. I wrote back to them but I've not had a reply. I don't want to go back there, so I'm now looking for a new dentist in the Sheffield 6 or 10 area.
  13. We are just in the process of getting some quotes for new fascias, gutters and soffits. So far we have received two quotes. The first one is more than double the cost of the second. We expected some difference in the price but this seems extreme. Both quotes appear to be from reputable people. It will be interesting to receive the third quote. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
  14. I remember going to Caister on Sea when I was a child, for our holidays and seeing a road called Bultitudes Loke!
  15. I was just wondering how many of us re-cycle everything that we can.
