    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I posted earlier on today but it was a bit half baked - so I'll try and start from the begining this time.


My DH has gotten into quite a financial mess.


I only found out about it in April 2008 - about 3 weeks after my mum died, so it was all a tremendous shock.


DH had been accumulating debt for quite sometime - to tune of about £100,000 - mainly cards, loans and a secured loan on a property he owns jointly with someone else.


Obviously I went ballistic - and there were many, many times I decided to leave, but we have a young son and thinking of him decided to try and work at it to make things work as a family.


He has a well enough paid job £35,000 - £40,000 a yr, although this hasn't always been the case.


I work part-time too, but none of the debt is in my name, so I can't be held responsible for that. The only joint financial agreement we have is our mortgage £63,000.


When I found out about the debt I told him he had to deal with it and to stop putting his head in the sand - incidentally I only found out because he was getting phone calls, to ask why things hadn't been paid.


So...... I went on the AIB website and found a council approved debt advisor who came to the house, lovely guy, he worked through everything and as we were trying to protect two properties and DH had a bee in his bonnet about paying it all back we went for a DAS.


Due to the amount of debt it was touch and go if the AIB would approve him but low and behold the DAS went through £540 per month for the next 13yrs!!! :eek:


I was dubious at the time, as there wasn't much slack and with the best will in world sh1t happens, and the few times it did my dear old dad was left to bail us out.


We're over a yr down the line with the DAS and we're mega struggling.


We had the advisor (same guy) come out again and we discussed a few alternatives.


I want to keep our house for our sons sake (I am prepared to buy the BI). DHs other house is jointly owned between him and his elderly Dragon - opps sorry Mother. She's nearly 85 and not in the best of health either, so we can't unroot her.


We talked TDs and BR but both put the properties at risk - I just don't know what to consider.


I'd be grateful of your opinions, and if I've missed anything out please ask.

As you have aready agreed the DAS then there is nt many optiosn left for you, any other option or non pament will be putting ris on the properties.


if you are struggling with the payments, the DAS agent should only be asking for payment that you can afford with the info you have gave. if your circumstances have changed them they should be altering the payments.


The only thing i can suggest at this stage is to check if there are any accounts that yuo can reaclaim any charges or PPI to reduce the amount
