Re: shed disposal/erection

An update on this, in case anyone searches for something similar.

We ended up using Herts Garden Buildings in Stapleford.

Really pleased with the quality of the shed and the general service etc.

shed disposal/erection

Thinking of buying a new shed to replace the one currently rotting away.

Has anyone used a local handyman to erect new shed/take down/dispose of the old one.

I know I could do it myself, but sometimes life's just too short...

No. It is the product of years of deliberate understaffing to increase the profits to the TOCs.

It's this sort of facetious remark which lets them get away with it.

Re: Great Northern now serving moorgate 7 days a week

Not a big fan of this change. Who are these 'stakeholders' they speak of. I would imagine that most weekend and late weekday passengers will be enjoying the delights of the west end, rather than Moorgate. Could it be that a zone2 capitalcard is costs more than a zone 1 and that Great Northern keep t...

Re: Check it's running from Hertford North...

Sad to say, this is still a problem six months later. Every other train cancelled in the evenings at the moment, so if you're having a christmas night out, check rail enquiries about an hour before going home so that you don't end up having to wait at Finsbury for an hour... My contempt for these cr...

Check it's running from Hertford North...

Travelled over the weekend and noticed that now summer is here the cancellations to services have started to kick in. Obviously, despite the cringeworthy poster campaign trying to persuade us that GN actually have enough staff to run the service, there's still not enough drivers to go round once the...

Re: Govia struggling..

What a bizarre comment re. drivers. The reason for the cancellations is that the franchisee has chosen not to recruit and train enough drivers to run the service. They do this because it is cheaper (read : more profits for shareholders) than cancelling trains. Rest assured that if it was not the cas...

chimney sweep

Any recommendations ?

Additionally, thinking of getting them lined as the house is old and I suspect that they've never been done, so if anyone knows anything about this type of thing then information will be gladly received.

giambrone - party food

I have never had coffee or cakes here (giambrone) but we used them recently for an evening buffet. They catered for 25, and were pretty reasonably priced (not that I've put that sort of thing out to tender very often!). Food quality was good. Nice mix of italian breads, anti pasta, pasta and sausage...

Re: engraving

Thanks,

I rang them today and got no answer.

Do they have peculiar hours ?
