  1. On line deliveries are now available
  2. Turn the bl**dy heating on then
  3. Please be advised that anybody planning to dash through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, going over the fields and laughing all the way are required to undergo a Risk Assessment addressing the safety of open sleighs. This assessment must also consider whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture, particularly where there are multiple passengers. Please note that permission must also be obtained in writing from landowners before their fields may be entered. To avoid offending those not participating in celebrations, we request that laughter is moderate only and not loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance. Benches, stools and orthopedic chairs are now available for collection by any shepherds planning or required to watch their flocks at night. While provision has also been made for remote monitoring of flocks by CCTV cameras from a centrally heated shepherd observation hut, all facility users are reminded that an emergency response plan must be submitted to account for known risks to the flocks. The angel of the Lord is additionally reminded that prior to shining his/her glory all around s/he must confirm that all shepherds are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment to account for the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and the overwhelming effects of Glory. Following last year’s well publicised case, everyone is advised that EC legislation prohibits any comment with regard to the redness of any part of Mr. R. Reindeer. Further to this, exclusion of Mr. R Reindeer from reindeer games will be considered discriminatory and disciplinary action will be taken against those found guilty of this offence. While it is acknowledged that gift-bearing is commonly practised in various parts of the world, everyone is reminded that the bearing of gifts is subject to Hospitality Guidelines and all gifts must be registered. This applies regardless of the individual, even royal personages. It is particularly noted that direct gifts of currency or gold are specifically precluded under provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Further, caution is advised regarding other common gifts, such as aromatic resins that may initiate allergic reactions. Finally, in the recent case of the infant found tucked up in a manger without any crib for a bed, Social Services have been advised and will be arriving shortly. Compliance of these guidelines is advised in order for you to fully participate with the festive spirit.

    Sadly JM, the toll payers would be forced to stump up for the cost of any enquiry - public or otherwise !
  6. Modern diesel engines are cleaner in all respects than petrol. Particulate filters and the additionn of 'ad blue' systems, as required by Euro 6 specs has ensured that. Of course, diesels generally produce less CO2 because they are far more economical. I.E. they use less fuel That means we diesel drivers effectively pay less tax per mile. I believe that's why they are so unpopular with governments. Of course, they'd never admit that....

  8. Waitrose 'Black Friday' Apparently I will get a 'free' bottle of bubbly (various grades), if I spend £125, £250, £500. I always thought they were expensive, but bloody hell, what would you fill your trolley with to spend that much?
  9. We've got one of those
  10. Bet you take your Waitrose carrier bag
  11. What mugs ! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7694571/Outraged-couple-Aldi-stickers-covering-Waitrose-Mediterranean-roast-vegetables.html?fbclid=IwAR1hF_yaRAuB29nPLMUp9EbanrhoAqLyK_dOsVxUWGpReowk4kAmEkgq9TU
  12. Caravan and Camping Club - members only.
  13. Whilst there's nothing wrong with fish & chips, I believe their offerings will be a little less 'run of the mill'.
  14. Many will Know that the White Swan pub by the GY yacht station is a pub no more. However it has been open as an exceptionally good wet and smoked fish and seafood shop foe a few months now. ( I can especially reccomend the kippers !) Well I am pleased to report that they will be opening a fish restaurant (eves. only) On 22nd of November. I shall report in due course.
