  2. Hello all We have just signed for a council bungalow and there is a 20 foot white birch in our front garden The tree is well out of control and I'm wondering if felling it is down to me or the council? Just wanted to check before I approach the council All the best Mark
  3. Hi I was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety 16 years ago Since then I have been diagnosed bipolar I experience high and low mood as part of the bipolar and am prescribed both anti depressants and mood stabilisers/anti psycotics I won't lie, its been a horrendous journey getting my meds, support etc right but it is possible Anti depressants can be tricky, I've been on lots of different meds but am now reasonably stable on a combination of amitryptaline and seroquel Personally the newer SSRI antidepressants did me no good, thats not to say they won't work for you. Its important to keep in mind theres always another med you can try I hope this has been of use to you, should you want to I'm always pottering around if you need a chat, just pm me Regards Mark

  6. Hello all I've just found out Jeremy Corbyn will be in Sheffield tomorrow and I wondered if anyone else is planning to go? Just thought I'd ask as I am able to pick people up who perhaps can't make the journey on their own All the best Mark
  7. Get in touch with Outibridge Caravan Holdings, their mechanic is great
  8. Your neighbour may be referring to the local bylaws that sometimes come in to play regarding storing a caravan/camper van at your house Personally I wouldn't take much notice of your neighbour if they are only stopping a couple of days They will basically be parking a van at your house, I very much doubt you will get any agro
  9. I would imagine so, best to pop in and ask at reception. They are really nice down there
  10. We live in a similar house We have built three bricks high with a slab on top You can incorporate air bricks in the construction, I have fitted an extractor fan as well to keep the air flowing Easy to build
  11. We booked with City Cabs, £65 each way if memory serves me. We cancelled in the end because my new car arrived in time. We ended up driving there the night before instead and got a room and 8 days parking for £79
  12. Try Outibridge Caravan Holdings, I've got my tourer there. I've seen a van, trailer tent and boat stored there
  13. IE non electric, this is the one we got http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/1587450.htm
  14. Try Rosate36, you can get quite a bit out of one bottle. Try ebay for it
  15. Why not get a push along, we picked one up from Argos earlier today and its brilliant for smaller grassed areas. It requires very little effort to push
  16. Hello all In case any of you are looking for storage I thought I'd let you know I've recently got mine in at Outibridge Caravan Holdings There were a couple of spaces available, not sure what sizes they were but I got mine in on a 20 foot space Regards Mark
  17. Hello all I'm awaiting my new car being delivered and I've been looking around for tow bar prices I have fitted my own tow bars to previous vehicles but with this one being brand new I need to have it fitted by a VAT registered company in order to retain the warranty I've tried Towsure and a company reccomended by the Citroen dealer but they want silly money I've had a quote from a Scunthorpe company that I used to get my tow bars from and their cheapest quote is £300 + VAT Any suggestions on getting it cheaper than the above price? Regards Mark
  18. My instructor said early mornings are a good time to check for cancellations and sometimes people cancel on their dinner break Hope you have more luck on your next test, try to take it easy, they aren't looking for perfection
  19. I've been planning on giving Holme Valley Campsite in Holmfirth a go, looks really nice and not too far away
  20. Anybody want some cardboard? Got quite a bit at home Collection from Deepcar PM me Mark
  21. Hello all Who do you use for a gas test? I need a mobile tester as my new car hasn't arrived yet What sort of price is average? Regards Mark
  22. Hello all I'm in the process of removing the manky carpet that my caravan came with I'm not sure whether or not it would be worth sealing the floor boarding before fitting the new carpet? I wasn't sure if it would be better to leave the floor as is, does it need to breath? Any advice? Thanks in advance Regards Mark
  23. Hi Jomie Thank you for your concern I have physical and mental disabilities, I have towed trailers and my previous caravan a few years ago My partner Brian will be helping me with coupling up, moving the caravan etc I do get a bit tired whilst driving but we won't be going more than an hour away on the first few trips, we might go further once I'm back in the swing of things if I feel ok I live my life in the slow lane these days, no pun intended I'm certain going out on trips, fresh air, bit of walking etc will do me the world of good Thanks again for your concern Mark
