    Veggie Growers????...............

    Runner beans need a lot of room and tend to overshadow anything close. Why not have a wigwam or two at the back of flower beds as a feature, and to save space in your raised veg bed?

    I would suggest that he pops into the local Citizens Advice. There he will receive initial information, help and advice, especially on dealing with any priority debts in the first instance, and can be referred to a debt specialist. CA can contact his creditors with his authorisation and arrange...

    Let the wheel debate begin

    Hedgehog wheels are banned at our course, which is on Wealden clay and so quite heavy and wet in winter. The reasoning is that hedgehog wheels are meant to reduce the area of wheel in contact with the ground, as they are supposed to rest on the tips and not dig in; once the ground is soft and...

    Hedgehog Wheels

    Our club won't allow hedgehog wheels, as the ground is pretty heavy and soft in winter. If the hedgehog wheels did what they were intended to do , and just took the trolley weight on the tips of the 'spikes', then there wouldn't be any damage. When it's soft they sink in and churn a trail of...

    Sun Mountain bag falling apart

    Bought a Sun Mountain H2NO Lite about 3 years ago. The first waterproof zip broke in normal use after 18 months, and SM weren't interested when I contacted them. Second zip now gone. I won't be buying another …..

    Home carers advice

    Attendance allowance will be a given from what you describe - not means-tested and can be spent anyway the recipient wants . Local social services should have been notified when she went home, but you can always request an urgent needs assessment via her GP to push things along. It's usually...

    "Ssshedule" or "Skedule"?

    Mischievous is not pronounced 'mischeevious'. Even the BBC are now following the American mispronunciation of French words and names, with the emphasis on the wrong syllable - eg café, Macron, debris - I think the French know better ...

    Making me own Sloe Gin

    Keep it simple and avoid some of the complicated recipes: To every standard bottle of gin add 1 lb of sloes and 6 ounces of sugar. Sugar is to personal taste really, but 8 ounces makes a sloe gin that can taste too sweet, and 4 ounces can be a little on the dry side. It helps to prick the sloes...

    Litter Louts....

    What on earth is wrong with people when they can't take their litter home or bin it? I'm fortunate enough to live out in the country, but I'm forever picking up stuff that has obviously been chucked out of car windows, usually at night: beer and soft drinks cans, bottles, sandwich wrappers...

    Clubs for Junior Golfers

    My 12 year old son plays a pretty good game and has played with a half set of Jaxx clubs since he started 4 years ago. They've done him very well, but he really needs a more decent set now to help his game progress. I don't want to spend a fortune as he is growing quite rapidly, but does anyone...

    Manners - or lack of......

    Recovering from a recent injury I was unable to play golf for a few weeks but, as things improved, I decided to take advantage of the fine weather and try some walks along the public footpaths across and around my local course, of which I am a member. During one walk I stopped and waited for...
