Re: Local Auto electrician needed.

Thanks Ken but any mechanic we approached referred us to an Auto Electrician. The job was probably too fiddly or too small (unprofitable) I suspect. We tried Matt but he's booked out, anyone else you can recommend ? PM if you don't want to reply Board-wide and cheers !

Thanks for the background Grufallo, provides insight. The character may have been misappropriated but it's use in the context quoted seems adolescent and non directed. The Post seemed a bit "Christians in search of Filth" to me !

Bike found.

Found this Bike abandoned at a Gate on the Tee of the Southern fork of Beach lane in the Burrow. Poor condition but fixable. It may well have been abandoned rather than stolen. Have brought it home for storage, any ideas or info please contact me.

Absolutely- SuperValu needs competition. Aldi or Lidl would be a great addition to the area as would some new restaurants. With all the new young couples moving to the area, there is a great opportunity for cafes and restaurants. Keelings is a great pub. It would be great if Smyth’s upped its game,...
