    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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


This is my first ever post so please bear with me!!


I had a bailiff call round early last year for non payment of council tax. requested a payment card to be sent to my mum's house as she was going to help me pay it in instalments. It never arrived. My mum had just bought a business and we came to an arrangement that she would pay it if i worked for her.


about 8 months later he turned up again to tell me nothing had been paid and told him he would have to talk to my mum and i would get her to phone him. she contacted him to ask if she could pay half then and half the week after and he never replied.


today i had a different bailiff come round for the same thing and was told if i didn't pay by 8pm tonight they would come and remove goods. i went to get the phone to call my mum and the bailiff decided that she would enter my house uninvited. i know you shouldn't let them in but my baby was crying for a bottle and my 2 year old was running around so i was somewhat distracted.


what i want to know is can i get anything done re the first bailiff for not dealing with the things requested? as i have now incurred more charges for it. i know i could have called them but don't see why i should considering it will cost me more money!


I forgot to say that i am now unemployed and receiving materity allowance.

First thing; Don't panic. Did the bailiff leave any kind of paperwork? If so can you scan it[minus personal details} so the more knowledgeable people can see if its worth the paper its written on. You can, if you wish pay the council online[it wont be refused] no matter how small it will show a willingness to pay. As you are unemployed and recieving maternty benefits

this may class you as vunerable and you should inform the bailiffs of this. If you search out Kelcou's post's in this forum

you will find many of her letters that you can adapt for your own purposes, I'm sure she wont mind. Are you a single mother?

I only ask because that may help. Get back with more info as soon as you can and I'm sure yu will get the help you need.

No i am not a single mother but my partner is currently trying to set up his own business! Now that she has entered my property can she seize goods? Even though she was uninvited? I can pay the whole lot after begging and borrowing and selling my car but i am now stuck with 2 small children and i refuse to pay the extortionate prices on public transport!


My mum payed £250 in november.


They did a levy for a previous debt when i didn't know that you shouldn't let them in but that was payed.


I have just spoken to the council and was told that bailiffs do not return the debt to the council although i thought they did so that they could do an attachment of earnings or something!


This is all she left with me today.


Thanks for the help :-)

sorry that didn't help! it basically says:


Removal Notice

Due to unpaid council tax

costs incurred today £0

Amount to be paid immediatly £543.23


Due to non payment we have attended your premises today to remove good. You must make an immediate payment to our offices in cleared funds to prevent re-attendance and removal procedures commencing.


Should you fail to make immediate payment we may re-attend your premises and remove goods even in your absence (as in accordance with the law).


Removal of goods will incur additional costs.

YOU will be liable for ALL fees, charges and costs incurred.


Should you be unable to pay in full it is imperative that you contact me immediately on:

Enforcement Agent .......


Ignoring this letter will not make the debt go away

It does'nt look like they have made a levy. Is the £543 the amount you owe the council or have extortionate 'fees' been added, if so write to the bailiffs and ask them for a breakdown of their fees.end the letter recorded or they will claim they never recieved it!

Continue to pay the council on line. Did they turn up last night?
