  1. Hi does anyone know where I can take a tortoise for its beak to be trimmed? Thanks
  2. I cancelled some pet insurance in July, I cancelled the direct debit and rang the company to tell them i wouldnt be renewing, this company was in the middle of being taken over by another company, So today i noticed they have still been taking £24 a month since august, I rang them up and told them it was wrong and that i had cancelled the policy via phone and the direct debit, they cant trace the call, Obviously i want a refund so what can i do? Is it my bank to blame for allowing another direct debit from a slightly different named company and double the amount to come out of my account? Dont know where to go with this as im annoyed and want my money back, any advice?
  3. Me and my friend love this place and the park but the history of it is very mysterious and near impossible to find, Its owned now by a Clifford Newbold who bought the house in 1997 for 1.5 million, now this is the biggest glass fronted stately home in europe and sits on 160 acres of land, Does anyone know anything about it, I know about the fitzwilliam family and then it being a college for "P.E" teachers and now the police use it too, but no one has ever seen the owner, hes a "recluse" and only hires european staff as he says " there less into gossip" Also the last earl fitzwilliam spent 3 weeks burning 160 tons of the families history via paper work, its all very secretive and intriguing

  5. The accident yesterday morning involved my husbands friend, He was travelling home in his van when some idiot overtaking in the opposite direction came straight at him, He must have been doing some speed because the impact tipped his transit van! Fortunately hes fine but his van is a right off, not sure about the other vehicle involved as if im honest I didn't ask!

    Found great new pet shop

    Ive also been in the shop, the bloke is lovely and very helpful, Its quite a well stocked shop too to say its not big, and he did say he could order items in that I needed, He's a lot cheaper than pets at home which is where I normally shop, I shall be going there from now on, Like someone already said, Id rather support a local business than fill pets at homes pockets!

    Driving licence question

    Hi, Its £50 for your provisional licence, Its £20 a lesson (1 hour) or £38 for 2 hours, It took me 8 months, at 1 lesson a week, although I did miss a few what with working or holidays, Its then £32 for your theory and hazard perception test, Obviously if you fail that you have to pay £32 again, then the actual practical test is £60 plus you can have an hours lesson before and then you have to pay for using the instructors car for your test so that's another £38, I passed with Sandersons school of motoring, Lovely bloke George! Still miss our lessons
  8. SANDERSONS school of motoring! covers S5 and surrounding area's, I can not recommend this lovely guy enough! George, is a patient, kind and very funny bloke! nothing phases him! Ive got my test soon and when I pass I will really miss him he does 4 hours for £40 for first timers, or £20 an hour or £38 for 2 hours, top bloke!!

    New sofa that i hate!

    I've got a 3 seater and a chair, brown leather suite, the chair and both ends of the sofa recline, but It's just too big for my room and I don't use the recliners, Ideally I'd like to sell it and put the cash towards a new one, but how much can I get? I paid £2099 for it just under a yr ago, It's in perfect condition still, one of my friends said that you can take them to certain stores and "trade" them in against a new one but I've never heard of this? Any ideas ppl
  10. Hi has anyone paid to have a puppy sent over from ireland? I keep seeing adverts for puppies that can be delivered free of charge from londonderry? Is this right? Or is this "puppy farming" I have heard of people buying dogs abroad for good "bloodlines" but to just buy a puppy from there because there cheaper? And would the puppy need a passport? Has anyone done this? Thanks

    Buying a puppy from ireland?

    Yes i agree, I wasnt looking for a puppy thats "cheap" I was looking for a certain breeder and this one in londonderry kept cropping up and it just made me curious

    Buying a puppy from ireland?

    Neither of the above, I dont want anything illegal and it was a saint bernard i was looking at, Im just suspicious that they can sell and deliver for cheaper than i can pay in the uk? But he's a registered user for a good few years on different "puppy for sale sites" and if there had been any problems wouldnt he be reported? banned?
  13. Hi, does anyone know whos in charge of sorting the pitch's for this years gala? thanks

  17. Having accidently found a thread on here about my father and the school he attended, It has made me think if anyone else will have known him and have stories to share, He was born in 1951, he was a big bloke 6ft3" and a roofer by trade, he worked for "malden" martin brookes" beasham" over the years, He died in 2004 and was only 53 and never got to see his 2 grandchildren, there must be lots of things i didnt know about him and would love stories to pass on to my son about his "grandad". He went to hurlfield and arbourthorne schools and college for roofing, he lived on fellbrigg road and had 3 sisters and a younger brother, He had lots of nick names lol , "poggy" (which he hated) white cliffs of dover, mountain man lol he liked a drink so these nick names were probably given to him after a good few pints! Thanks Kathy

    Dogs free to a good home

    Yes but how would it be policed? What would stop people (scum) from breeding there dog and selling the pups by word of mouth? Its a hard problem to solve because the people that cause the problem are irresponsible idiots who wouldnt abide by a law anyway
