    Worcester Flue Location - one for the RGI's

    Worcester Flue Location - one for the RGI's

    Flue can be drilled from the inside if going through the wall, so not so bad, getting on that lower roof isn't too bad as RGI was up there with a tape measure Thanks for the reply though

    Gate Post Issue

    Thanks for everyone’s comments, I am going to see the installer this morning, as the concrete man called me early to say he wants to come and shutter today, ready for the concrete pouring on Thursday, so he better get digging. Re the wind factor, I had already realised that, so have been...

    Gate Post Issue

    The bloke who made it came up with two ideas 1. as I described above, but also try and brace to the next fence post, but worried it might brake that too. 2. Dig out the concrete with a braker, make the base bigger, lots more concrete, Paul

    Quick TV Licence Question - probably asked 1000 times !

    Interestingly ........ following the advice to bin it, I thought I would open it before I did. Inside was a letter to the previous owner, saying thanks for renewing your TV licence for the next 3 years, now due to expire in November 2013 I think because the previous occupant was over 75, and...
