    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]
    • Pleased to hear that.   A general comment, for future readers of this thread, from my experiences of being an Executor.   Most large companies have a centralised 'Bereavement' department and I've found it's best to notify the death to them rather than the general customer service call centres. Search the company's website for 'bereavement'.   The bereavement departments are in my experience staffed by people who understand the processes when someone dies both for the relatives/executors and within their own companies and they get things sorted efficiently. (I've never had to use Vodafone's though).
    • Hi All, A simple question really. I received a NTK ticket on a lease vehicle last year from Parking Eye. As expected, they were adamant i was at fault and no payment was made. I highlighted to them that their signage no longer had planning permission and this was ignored however since ignoring this, they have gone quiet and have been for roughly 6 months now. I know they can claim for up to 6 years(??) after. As it was a lease vehicle, the RK was the lease company. PE were provided my personal address and had been communicating with me via letter there. I have now moved house and what i would like to avoid is them issuing court papers, something which i know PE like to do, me not being aware and eventually ending up with a default CCJ against my name. I appreciate i could write to them and update my address with them however i worry this may "Wake them up" a bit regarding my case. What is the best approach here?
    • Forget the warranty that means nothing and a warranty does not replace or over rule your rights under CRA amongst other consumer legislation. which state that outside of 30days but within 6mts its the sellers that is responsibility to confirm the item faulty, which has been done.   contact amazon with that proof and demand a replacement, refund or repair as they feel fit.        
    • Thanks BN   I take it this is a good sign then like you say. I certainly won’t be making any payments to them.

    • 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

Hi all,

 

I'm off to Fort William next weekend with the family, and we are staying

in one of them Log Cabin thingy's.

 

Has anyone been, and what is there to do beside fishing (which I do like).

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

ps. My last holiday was 30 years ago in Butlins, so I'm well out of date.:|


 

 

If all else fails, kick them where it hurts and SOD'EM;)

Fort William is fantastic, I got married there almost 4 years ago(wedding anniversary in 2 weeks).

 

Theres a couple of great pubs that do fantastic meals, and just along from the harbour is a chinese that is really well priced!

 

While your there, nip along to Glenfinnan and see the commando monument and the viaduct.

Depends how far around you want to go, the whole of the Highlands is amazing.

 

Head North East for Fort Augustus and drive alongside Loch Ness all the way to Inverness, stopping at Urqhart Castle on the way. Or head west for Mallaig and from there there are crossings for some of the islands. Or head North West and follow the West Coast alongside Loch Duich (with the castle in the movie Highlander) and the Kintail sisters (breathtaking!) and then take the sea bridge across from Kyle of Lochalsh to Skye and take the time to tour all around Skye.

 

I could go on and on. The whole of the Highlands is just superb, and I miss it all the time. If you're lucky enough to have decent weather, it will be a fabulous experience to remember for a long time, I promise you. :-)

Brilliant, and thanks everyone. I was a bit apprehensive, but I'm rather

looking forward to it. We have transport as well so will take in as much

as we can in the 4 days we are there. Haven't got a lot of spends but

the main aim is for the kids to enjoy themselves (and a bit for us adults

as well). Would probably need more time but if it's cheap enough, we could

always go back.

 

Someone said we can get a cable car to the top of Ben Nevis. Is that true?

WOW, I didn't think so many people from one site would have been there:D.

 

It's not like it's Spain or anything.

 

Thanks all, I'm sure I'll love it. Don't think I will be able to get it all in though, as we have only got 3 full days there.

 

I will be truly disappointed though if it rains all the time, as I have not been

anywhere for 30 years:(.

I was in the Highlands a few weeks back. Take a boat trip on Loch Ness and you will get a great view of Urqhart Castle. If there are a lot of you its expensive getting into the Castle. Take the Road to the Isles from Fort William to Mallaig. Go off the main road down a single track road which goes along the coast. Weather permitting the scenery is fantastic. Glencoe is not to far away and the drive over Rannoch Moor is spectacular.

Joanna Lumley went to Fort William to get married in 1986... so you could be rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous... or eaten alive by midges:eek:

Well, we leave for Fort William in about half an hour.

 

Seeing as this is the firsta break I had in 30 years (and the first one with my kids altogether), I thought I would share with you the weather we can expect.

 

BBC Weather | Corpach

 

 

No I no that weather forecasters don't always get it right, but that is only when they say it is going to be sunny.

 

I know for a fact that it will be ****istantly raining all day every day. That on it's own has basically completely lowered my expectations of an enjoyable break. Let's just hope there is plenty of indoor activity going on:p. Won't take lappy as I believe it's hard to get a mobile signal in most places, let alone Wi-Fi.

 

 

Will let you all know on Thursday night (or Friday morning) how it went.

 

 

 

This says it all:-

 

 

 

 

And gives you a laugh also:D

Oi You... Stop raining on your own parade and get your waterproofs on!!

 

You can have as much fun wringing wet as you can when you're dry... in fact more cos when you get back to your log cabin it'll makes it all the more welcome... a few hot toddys to keep out the chills and all that. ;)

 

Have a fantastic time and enjoy the break and being with your kids..

 

If you can, go on the gondola to Aonach Mor, it really is fantastic..

 

Have fun, safe journey,
