Hi there, this is my first post In July Yeomans Outdoor Leisure had a sale, and I bought this tent: You can see they make a big deal of the free £50 gift voucher. The tent arrived but the voucher wasn't forthcoming. So I looked up the t&cs and was surprised at condition 14.11. Sounds like misleading advertising to me: I've contacted Yeomans Outdoor Leisure twice by email (no response), once in writing (no response), and have just sent them a letter before small claims action. So far so good. But I've just been back to their site, yeomansoutdoors.co.uk, and was surprised when it redirected me to another website, fieldandtrek.com. Both Yeomans Outdoors and Field & Trek are part of the Sports Direct empire. I suspect Yeomans may be about to be wound up. I'm pursuing this more on principle than for the £50. Is there any way I can fight this?
What do you think. Are some children missing out on the great outdoors and what it offers. Do you think perhaps as technology came in things changed. Do you really think computers help children learn or do you still believe in the old ways. I myself am obsessed with the outdoors ever since a child.The smells as you walk through woods. The crashing waves,and things you can learn on the shoreline. A walk through a forest. The unexpected nature you come across.That never fails to amaze you. First forest i came across was Grizedale Forest in the Lake District.Still think of it to this day. Castles and places like that where you can tell some stories,sometimes tall ones if you feel so inclined. Or your local park,a exciting place to visit. For myself it started when i went looking for a Dipper(a bird) in Wales.With a chap called Cluellyn Magnus Jones in Denbighshire.Way back in the 60s And came across hundreds of rabbits in a field unexpectedly. Just wondering what you out there think of things. Only problem i find as you get slightly older is the fresh air puts you out when you get home. No harm in that and the youngsters sleep well as well. All that fresh air. Just not keen on some questions like-"In your time was everything black and white". With research suggesting that children aren't spending enough time in the great outdoors, Caroline Fitton of the local Wildlife Trust explains why we should be doing more to nurture their love of all things natural. From a falling leaf to a cloud in the sky, nature captures every child's inquisitive sense of wonder. Spending plenty of time outdoors and engaging with nature and wildlife is one of the best things for any child, helping to develop fertile imaginations and bestowing a lifelong appreciation of the natural world. For many of us, spending time outside when we were young was a large and very valuable part of our childhoods; new technology and increased 'screen' time now bring concerns that the new generation are increasingly missing out.

Hi All, My OH has major problems with staying warm. So I'm taking her to Iceland for all the years of grief that woman has given me So I'm looking for a battery operated heating pad that can be used when out and about. I can see there are a fair few available online but I'm finding it difficult to find one with good reviews. Any ideas? Cheers
