  1. I need 3 downpipes replacing, end guard fixings sealed as they are leaking water and just general cleaning whilst someone is up there with a ladder. Nothing much more than what a normal autumn/winter would acuminate. I get the feeling that business has been tight the last year and people are charging an arm and a leg . Really want to report it to checkatrader as it seem some traders are doubling prices but you would think that some traders/self-employed would have furlonged?
  2. Been asking around for a gutter person to come clean and repair some of our gutters. I normally use Checkatrader to get a decent tradesman. But the last 3 traders who have come out and checked our gutter has quoted me between £2000 - £5000 to clean and repair a downpipe and fix an end fixing to a gutter. Was like you got to be kidding right. I know people may have been out of work due to Covid but to have the cheek to charge me around £2000 + to clean gutters and fix some leaky pipes is astonishing. Also does anyone know any good products to reduce the amount of leaves getting to
  3. Are they really going to fine parents for refusing to send their kids to school in March when it reopens? lol
  4. Its a half ass job and just the bare minimum to get the country to open again. Either you do a job proper, get everyone vaccinated, 2nd dose for the vulnerable etc or not open up at all. No point patching up the issue and hoping for the best, giving false hopes to people. Just do the job properly so we don't end up in square one again where we have to close the country down to sort the mess out.
  5. Surely school kids and teacher are no way near being vaccinated yet so opening them up WILL increase hospitalisation and death numbers either directly or indirectly because they would be mixing and spreading it. Its not just about hospital numbers and deaths. Long Covid is also an issue that will increase hospital numbers. Its all a bit backwards again, letting those who are not vaccinated free to roam around. Rather we get everyone vaccinated and then open up, lease there is a some sort of protection
  6. Honestly think schools opening up way too early. Thats only next month. Has teachers even been vaccinated yet?
  7. Everyone I know seem to be getting the Oxford vaccine and at 4 months apart. While the numbers of infections are getting lower, mainly because of lockdown. I hold judgment until the big release. The only thing I don't like is the talk of coming out of lockdown at a time when half the country has not been vaccinated. We all know what its like when someone smells freedom, suddenly everyone is entitled to it. We really need to get it right this time around especially with the help of a vaccine rather waste another half year of lockdown just to find out that the vaccine we had and the gap
  8. Been told I have to take all of my 18 days annual leave this month or risk losing them and there's me thinking I had it all worked out by saving them to use at the last minute because by then we will be back to normal. So now I have to use them during lockdown....*sign* Roll on the marathons of TV series.
  9. This is a good thread. I can never maintain the live herbs from supermarkets. Always end dead or develop mould for some reason?
  10. Keep posting these pics love seeing people do DIY. You need to check out oakwood garden rooms on youtube.
  11. I thought schools were suppose to be closed? Saw a lot of school kids walking to school today like it's was a normal day? Also I drove to the petrol station forthrfirst time in months and was stuck in traffic like it was rush hour? This was at 330?
  12. Those are disgusting numbers, but no surprise given the Governments willingness to let people mix during Christmas and expanding the spread of the new variant. However we have been averaging around 50-60k the last few weeks? Is this not weird to anyone?
  13. If get 11,780 to vote for Trump surley he will become PM?
  14. Shambles on the following:- 3rd lockdown at the last minute. (Called it November this will happen). Track and trace not working Continiuing flip flopping of advise. Announcing things at 8pm and I will say the delivery of vaccine/mix and matching of vaccinations will be the next shambles to arise from this. No doubt we will end up vaccinating people again because we missed the window to it propery the first time around. China has 3 billion people and have no way ordered as mainly vaccinations as we have. Absolute **** show. Great start to the year.
