  1. Hey guys on 19/10/2018 I have parked my motorbike next to the car bay in Olympic Park, the ground was not marked by yellow crossing lines there, while I am pretty sure it was in other places, so I assumed it is not a problem to park there. Received a PCN on that day and waited for NTK which arrived on 21/11/2018. The Parking Charge is 100£ at the moment. If not paid in 29 days, I am informed (threatened) that charge will go up by another 60£ I will try to scan and redact the NTK once I am in the office and will send it here as well Questionnaire: Date of infringement: 19/10/2018 at 13:15 Not appealed to PCN Received NTK: 21/11/2918 The NTK mentions Schedule 4 of Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Parking Company is Gemini Parking Solutions Location is Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park London
  2. Hi there! I know this thread is old https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?468641-Gemini-Parking-Solutions-PCN-Queen-Elizabeth-Olympic-Park-On-a-motorbike&p=5153731#post5153731 but yesterday I got a parking ticket by Gemini on my motorbike for parking exactly at the same spot than you did. I am curious to know what happened and what I should do. Thanks!
  3. Hi folks. Much the same as many people here I suspect, my first post is about a Parking Charge Notice I received. I'm aware this isn't a penalty charge notice. I have read many different stories about Gemini but I believe mine is a little unique. I and my motorbike (yes, my motorbike) received a Parking Charge Notice, stuck onto my petrol tank at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Date/Time - 11/08/16 16:50 The Issue reason is "Parking in a No Parking area". I have not appealed yet. All excuses aside - those being that I was attending a job interview and could find NO parking facilities at all. Eventually I locked my motorbike up to a bicycle railing completely missing the road signs as you can see in the photo attachment. I got back to my bike to find the parking charge notice on it. I have till Thursday (the 14th day) to appeal to keep within the £60 reduced fee (from £100). So much advice says ignore the Parking Charge Notice, but I feel my situation is quite unique. What advice do any of you sages have? Cheers in advance.
  4. Aretha died earlier today, age 76. For those who are old enough to remember, one of my favourite Aretha moments was when she sang 'Think' in The Blues Brothers film. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-11950661
  5. The Queen's most senior aides have summoned her entire household to an emergency meeting this morning. The Lord Chamberlain, the most senior officer of the Royal Household, and Sir Christopher Geidt, Private Secretary, will address staff from royal residences as far afield as Balmoral. Sources said the Lord Chamberlain does call meetings from time to time and that it would be wrong to speculate. Scores of staff arrived at Buckingham Palace this morning.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/04/buckingham-palace-summons-entire-royal-household-emergency-meeting/

  7. Over 70s prefer SEX than going to cinema ... and love Queen and Only Fools and Horses Many one liners in the article from Fools and horses. Such as 1 Did you know, 500 years ago this was a green and peaceful area? The old Earl of Peckham had a castle where the Kwik-Fit exhaust centre now stands. Flaxen-haired maidens used to dance round the village maypole of an evening. And then one fateful medieval day, the Trotter clan arrived in a stolen Zephyr. And as for queen i remember the group starting.Do you? And Fools and horses. As for sex my daughter thinks anyone over the age of 40 is well past it. No comment from the owl. But a joke perhaps. A guy stuck his head into a barbershop and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looked around the shop full of customers and said, "About 2 hours." The guy left. A few days later, the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looked around at the shop and said, "About 3 hours." The guy left. A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, "How long before I can get a haircut?" The barber looked around the shop and said, "About an hour and a half." The guy left. The barber turned to his friend and said, "Hey, Bob, do me a favor, follow him and see where he goes. He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but he never comes back. " A little while later, Bob returned to the shop, laughing hysterically. The barber asked, So, where does he go when he leaves?" Bob looked up, wiped the tears from his eyes and said, "Your house!" More. A third of 70-somethings are still working for a living years after retirement age , according to a survey. And are carrying debt. And 22% are working full time, despite picking up their bus passes several years ago Quite a good article covering a good few things. And all of a sudden has made me realise how quick time goes. So make sure you enjoy it.I am sure you are. A lady i have just been reading about who i find fascinating. One of her sayings. “I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.” ― Sophie Scholl The article. http://www.mirror.co.uk/money/over-70s-prefer-sex-going-7467869
  8. I have been posting on the bailiff section of the forum for close to 10 years and in all that time, regulars will know that with the exception of Out of Time witness statements for road traffic debts and statutory declarations for criminal court fines, I rarely if ever suggest that debtors take legal action to resolve a dispute regarding bailiff enforcement. Over the years I have also reported on many cases where legal action had foolishly been recommended and where debtors had lost their case and been ordered to pay the enforcement company (and or local authorities) legal costs. Many of these cases were in relation to 'Form 4 Complaints' and unfortunately, many such cases were on the recommendation of just one inexperienced individual who now offers an extraordinarily expensive 'McKenzie Friend' service. Sadly, there are no reports of any court successes. The new regulations have made a significant change in the way that disputes about goods taken into control by a bailiff/enforcement agent can be resolved. If a debtor or third party considers that goods should not have been seized there is now a simple, effective and speedy remedy available under Part 85 of the Civil Procedure Rules. A simple notice outlining the reason for the dispute must be sent to the enforcement agent within a maximum period of seven days. The EA then have a strict time period in which to inform the creditor (normally the local authority) that a dispute had been raised. The creditor then has the task of making a decision as to whether to admit or dispute the 'claim'. If the creditor agrees that the goods were wrongly taken, then the goods must be released. If the claim is disputed, then it will be for a court to decide whether or not the seizure was correct. Below I have provided a link to a very recent judgment (April 23rd 2015) from the Court of Appeal-Queen's Bench Division that highlights once again the problems that debtors can face when instigating legal action against a local authority and enforcement company.
