Chesterfield Discussion / Derbyshire County Council

Oh dear I think we are in for a big 'squeeze' makes a change from a big freeze but the money issues with our D.C.C and others will probably mean much needed work won't ( can't) be done.
They are on the edge of Bankruptcy along with other councils :(

General Discussion / Gardens

We've had a record year for flipping slugs in our garden. I know they do some good but I've never had so many of the huge orange / grey ones! :-? They destroyed my Marigolds. It's never happened before.
The Hedgehogs don't eat them either instead they share their food with them :-? :(

We went into Chesterfield on Saturday. I was stunned to see so many market stalls vacant.
Only one stall on the bottom market a maybe four at a guess on the large top market

General Discussion / Energy Companies
« on: June 17, 2023, 07:33:52 PM »
We've been with OVO for a good few years. never had any issues and enjoyed the 5% interest rate on accrued monies - except -
After the winter we were not far off £600.00 in credit so decided as winter was over and we hadn't used our heating for awhile to reclaim some.
We were apparently only allowed ! £104.00 back as we needed to keep three months in credit to cover our future energy bills!!  >:(
How very DARE THEY presume that we couldn't pay our bill - we pay by direct debit and have never been in debit.
I stewed on it for awhile then emailed a strong letter to their complaints.
Seriously within less than FIVE MINUTES hubbies mobile was ringing - he wasn't aware i had just emailed them.
I heard him say 'who is it' OVO? Hubby came into my computer room looking a bit confused.

Anyway to cut the story short the chap from OVO had seen my email pop up Obviously read it - and phoned straight away.

We got our money, but I requested he leave £200.00 in as a starter for next winter.
My gob has been truly smacked - That has to break all records!

Entertainment / The Swinging 60's

Tupton History Society have Janet and Paul Barrass coming to deliver a light hearted interactive presentation about the Swinging 60's.
Remember it? -
Yes? Then join us for a trip back to the 60's
No? Then join us and learn about life back in those fabulous years of the 1960's

Our venue opens at 6.30 for a 7.00pm start. You can park in the Church grounds and the Church is accessible. Look out for someone in a HiViz jacket as the lane to the Church can soon be missed.

£3.50 includes a raffle ticket plus tea, coffee and biscuits.

General Discussion / Turkey and Syria Earthquake
« on: February 06, 2023, 02:08:27 PM »
Very sad news today. It must be a nightmare for those living in these two countries. TV footage is frightening to watch.
Our weather is rubbish at times in the Uk but we don't get earthquake's - yet!
