Re: Where's FWLR Rod?

Good to hear from you Rod - the weather is warming so you'll soon be able to be solar powered out in the garden

Re: Welcome to the CHLR

Cheers Jim - its nice to be back, albeit in design phase (and building a shopping list for Peterborough)

Your offer of the Dais is very kind - once we start cutting sods I'll give you a shout to send them up... and if we need any fields clearing of sheep!

Re: Welcome to the CHLR

Cheers Tom - we should compare diaries for a Kent meeting at some point this summer - based on the latest vote in Parliament tonight concerning the B issue, I don't see the housing market picking up anytime soon :cry:

CHLR Mk2 update

Hi everyone – you’ll have noticed I dropped off the radar for many months – sadly my house move has dragged on (we are still have our house in Kent – our sale isn’t moving despite a sizeable price drop - blooming Brexit ) but I was lucky enough to get a new job in Manchester starting in November.
