  1. having filled up yesterday at boulters was well surprised, last time out we were across to norwich down to oulton broad ,back to potter and then home to stalham, plus return to horning yesterday, 47.7 litres for approx 30 hr cruising against the tide to acle coming back and a few extra revs crossing breydon both ways. works out at just over 1.5 ltr per hour for a 1500cc BMC diesel well pleased with the result
  2. how about mayfair, hampton safari still for hire at maycraft, was sunmist at porter and haylet, built 1975 mike
  3. in my line of work i see the results of recycling at various places, plastics,household electrical, scrap metal and garden rubbish .trust me they might be filling a dustbin lorry, but you may have two or three working the same round,recycling is a big moneyspinner no way are they going to waste (pun intended) this by mixing landfill with recyclable material. just up the road from timbo is one of the country's larger plastic recycling centres,ECOPLASTICS,they have just invested £20million on a new plant and they get daily deliveries from council recycling centres.garden rubbish is recycled into compost a few miles from timbo ,near robin hood airport just because you see a lorry emptying bins they have plenty of lorries it is a major undertaking,dont jump to the obvious conclusion,they pay fortunes for landfill, so no way would they mix and waste money. mike

  9. as a first aider of some 35 years i fully agree, only remove casualty from their vehicle if there is a life threatening situation,eg, fire risk , make them comfortable but dont mess about trying to be nice and keep them dry or warm in another vehicle unless they are mobile,this hinders the ambulance crews, easier to cover them on the ground , thus far as a first aider you are covered against sueing , put therm into your vehicle which in itself could be damaging to the casualty and you are wide open for a claim.
