He was such a great bloke. Had a few good time with him over the years. Generous to a fault he was. Proper proper gent!
I don't know him, but having checked his profile, far far too young to go. Sad news indeed.More than an irritation but finding out that Paulw who is a forum member and played H4H each year passed away last night 😢
Absolutely gutted, he was a great person that will be sorely missedMore than an irritation but finding out that Paulw who is a forum member and played H4H each year passed away last night 😢

he was - lucky enough to have played a few times with him at Swinley , he loved that place and so proud of be able to have people there.he was in my 4ball at the sunningdale meet - a really nice guy
This shouldn’t annoy me but it does. The folks opposite are having their kitchen redone which includes a small extension. The building work is being done by a one man building outfit. They have a skip out the front for all the rubble and other junk. The folks opposite are out at work and the builder has just turned up. First thing he does is empty his van of junk that is obviously from another job into the skip. Maybe he has permission I don’t know but it just seems wrong.
We also had builders splitting skips which I had no objection to apart from the the time they left the world's filthiest toilet on the top of our skip from another job. Looked like it came off the set of the Young Ones.
I would imagine the cost of the skip will be charged to the neighbours opposite.If theyre paying him to remove the rubbish and hes providing the skips then up to him what he puts in the skips surely?
Have had trades in the past split a skip between sites and only charge us for part

Driving back from the range this morning,
I've got a choice of two routes. The one I normally take is shorter but busier, mainly single carriageway.
The other option is a couple of miles longer, but is 90% dual carriageway, built a few years ago, always pretty quiet as it goes through the middle of nowhere. The annoying thing about it is it is a 40mph limit, even though it's nowhere near any built up areas or housing. As a result, the majority of drivers ignore the speed limit and tank along at 55-60.
I had intended taking my normal route, but found myself in the wrong lane at the roundabout, so had to take the second option. I was tootling along, doing about 48mph, when i go round a bend and there is a copper stood in the central reservation with a speed gun.
So now it's a waiting game to see if I get a letter, pretty sure I will. The irritation is not so much being caught speeding - mea culpa - but the fact that the speed limit is ridiculously low for the type of road, and also at me for getting in the wrong lane in the first place.
You prob have been done now days.
I got done a few weeks ago and the new guns have recording cameras just laser you get a pic of speed and number plate ticket issued
Fair cop tbh I was going slightly over the limit but within the 10% plus 9 for speed awareness
Like yourself the road is dual carriageway, any houses are set well back from road, similar road in the area is 50 but this is 30
Anyways fair cop.
However I was in a loan car from the garage
So offence was 5th Feb
Issued 13th Feb , got to them in time etc
That goes to their lease company, then to them then to me
It's the 29th march. I've seen (got it on the phone) the pic of me speeding and the intention to prosecute in their name
Anyways 29th march and it's STILL not with me
I guess the police haven't had your name/address yet from the leasing company?
Interested in this. Was going to post my own irritation. Hit a pothole which trashed tyre Saturday evening. Once repaired went out to photograph.The Council process for making a claim for pothole damage.
Wife hit a pothole and trashed a tyre, no dispute about that or the pothole. This pothole had damaged 5 cars in the 4 days previous another was on the vergor for recovery when my wife hit it and driving past the next day there were 2 more cars with damage. Response from the council, as we we had checked the road in the last 6 months and had only been notified 4 days previously, there was no obligate to have repaired it or to have any warning markers or cones in place. This despite daily reports of damage. Sent her a 3 sided letter talking about court evidence, statutory obligations and anything else they could.
Needless to say, I am not leaving it there.
Probably not. He works away and she is a prison nurse and works funny shifts so very rarely see them.are you going to mention it to them?
