Re: Can anyone name this shop

I remember the shop when it was a Spar shop. Prior to that I believe it was A.E.Lockyer General Stores. I remember the shop because I nearly died there! When I was a carpet fitter I had to fit a foam back carpet in the upstairs living accommodation. As I was cutting the carpet with my Stanley knife ...

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

The Mercury's front page today have got it wrong again. 106-110 Ware Rd is on the corner of Beechwood which are all houses. I think they mean 306-310 which would be the vacant plot further up the road. So even when they do get round to mentioning Ware and Hertford they can not get it right.

Re: "Hertford & Ware" Mercury

You beat me to it Steve. This was not the Hertford Mercury it was all about Cheshunt, with just a few snippets about Hertford & Ware.

The King's Mead

The new Macs pub at Chadwell Spring is now open. I called in this morning and was made most welcome by the staff. In my eyes it is very nicely fitted out as a pub and a restaurant. The golf course is still under development, but I look forward to trying out the food next week.

Re: Virgin media email sign-in

Yes Mel I first noticed it yesterday.Like you I find it very annoying and rather juvenile, although if it is a extra security help I suppose we should be grateful, but I do wonder if it really is necessary.

Re: Lost: Harris Hawk

Richard you are quite right about the size. I have only seen a Red Kite in flight so it seemed to me to be smaller than the Harris Hawk that I had on my gloved hand when I was photographing it. Although I must say the bird I saw yesterday when it swooped down in my garden did have the same markings ...
