Gritter was round out road every 3 hours last night. But grit will not work without grinding in. And most sensible folks stayed put. Made a few snowmen tho!

Re: Volkswagen specialist in dicker mill / mill road?

Sound Chap, Colin (and Matt who works for him). Colin drives down from Sleaford every day to serve the good VW drivers of Hertford. You need to pick your car up at 5 sharp (because he has a long drive home) but I've never put mine in to find he hasn't been able to sort it without any bother well bef...

I know, usual routine - Mr and Mrs Professionalcouple sell their flat in Camden for £500k+ and bag a (relative) mansion in Hertford for a mere couple of hundred K more. But where will it end?

Re: Red Kite in Hornsmill

Majestic birds, aren't they? We often see him (or her) circling over the field behind our house in Mandeville Road, just up the road from your sighting. I gather the nearest reported breeding pair are based at Knebworth. They have gradually spread their wings, so to speak, since the species were rei...

Re: Independant garage for japanes cars
