Can anyone please recommend a joiner to carry out repairs to our summerhouse doors, windows etc.
to restore it to its former glory when designed and built in 1985?
Thank you in anticipation.
Hi Ken I have had a look in the daylight and he is still dark grey, did I mention when I caught it it was hopping mad
Are you sure it's ok Colin as it was dark when you caught it and it is now light grey ??
A large grey pet rabbit was found on Paddock lane last night, it seems Ok but it was very dark when I caught it
Recently I sang the praises of the new bus service but this time I have to report a negative.
Three of us used the service into Nantwich and booked a return at the same time. The return pick up point was outside the Talbot pub where we have been collected before. Just before the allotted time I received the usual text to let me know the arrival time. We had strategically had a final drink in the Crown so we could nip around the corner .
The text read "Your journey is on it's way and is 3 minutes away- Pickup: Railway Station" What!
With a pair of running shoes, a following wind and perhaps 20 years ago I could perhaps have made it. With a belly full of food and one or two pints the original collection point was doable,just! No choice but to cancel. I couldn't rebook due to high demand, according to the app, so I had no choice other than to book a £20 taxi ride.
Disappointed and my faith in the system has taken a knock.
I have found Duncan Meredith to be a reliable repairer of domestic appliances. 07967189353

Excellent and very reasonable John
Can anyone recommend an engineer to repair my Bosch dishwasher please.
How I wish all old style stiles were able to be replaced by the new 'easy climb' version as it wouldn't half save me a lot of 'huffing and puffing' when out walking.
However I do wish we could retain the old style traditional names and not the 'new' versions. It is Holmes Bank not Rabbit Hill – please consider us ' local oldies' because when we say we are lost on Holmes Bank you won't be able to find us.
Shame that a child's chance to talk to Santa depends on the technical competence of their carer. Why does it have to involve google accounts and passwords? What is wrong with a sheet of paper at Williams'? Had to be rescued by dau in law and lost the slot I had.
Correction to earlier post, sorry I meant Pippa not Sue
Try Alan Sheen in Winsford or Phil Morton in Macclesfield, both come highly recommended.
Tony the figures I quoted were from Bernstein senior analyst Neil Beveridge. It takes all of 2 minutes to find many reliable sources saying the same.
Apologies – I appear to have completely mangled my previous message.
I meant to say, this link I found useful:
an "independent nonprofit organization founded to provide first-rate, unbiased research"
which "considers present and projected future GHG emissions attributable to every stage in the life cycles of both vehicles and fuels" and concludes that "battery electric vehicles have by far the lowest life-cycle GHG emissions".
I also meant to say that clearly we are all going to have to cut back on driving generally, and switch to e.g. electric bikes for shorter journeys – and the end of my message was supposed to say that I have one of these and it is great!
Sorry for the garbled nature of my previous message. Hopefully this one is better!
Seems to be that, depending on where the cars and batteries are manufactured, electric cars will have lifetime emissions of around 30% that of a comparable ICE vehicle.
Road Safety could be greatly improved if more people used their indicators as required, reference source Highway Code rules 103 & 186. Parking on the Pavement is also a pet hate of mine, reference source Highway Code 244.
The last sentence of Kate Tilling's post does not make sense and much of Adrian Leighton's last piece did not seem right. Is the computer messing about with the text?
When making statements with data, please referance the source.
Otherwise data has as much value value as a comment on social media sites or a Trump source.
I've seen several source give figures
Car life time carbon dioxide emissions (tonnes)
Tesla modal 3 27.1 tonnes
BMW 320i petrol car 22.8 tonnes
Hardly seems that the electric car is the green option.
The lifetime carbon footprint of electric cars vs petrol/diesel is complicated to calculate, and depends on where each vehicle is made, and in the case of the EV, how the electricity that charges is produced. But even in worst case scenario (car built and driven in country with mostly coal fired power stations), the EV is greener over its entire life cycle. One link I found useful is I have one and it is amazing, but electric cars seem to be part of a climate change reduction strategy.
Pippa May – A few years ago (7 or 8 maybe ?) I had my sewing machine repaired by someone who lived just beyond Whitchurch. His name was DAVID FLINT tel: 01948 780 593. I don't know if he is still in business, but you might try him.
I would like to apologise most profusely, to anyone upset by my flippant and inconsiderate post last night concerning recent unsavoury events in the village. I also apologise to our webteam who have the hapless task of monitoring contributions. They do a splendid job on a voluntary basis and like me, being human, sometimes fall below the standards that we would, in an ideal world, seek to achieve. Sorry to one and all.
