    • 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

I highly recommend purchasing "TrueCall" and the additional memory card that will allow you to record.

 

Helped me a few times now AND it'll help stop unwanted calls coming in as well :)

 

The whole package for the device and recording card comes in at around £80-90 from Amazon.

I havnt had any of those annoying calls for some time since buying truecall, not even from the persistant gent from india. I also think that the dca companies know when they hear press such and such for family or if call expected, that, the call is likely to involve true call and be recorded xxx

 

Got mine from Johnlewis for 70.00 in their sale and then bought the largest memory card and ordered it and received it the following day. I hummed and harred a while about it due to cost, but boy I now am pleased I have. Less stress :)

The other good thing is that it records EVERY conversation, but if you just hang up it'll delete them.

 

What that means is that if, mid call, something happens and you need the call recorded, you hit the record button and it saves the call from the beginning, not from when you press the button.

 

Can be VERY useful if a company starts making a load of promises down the phone :wink:

The TrueCall unit is remarakably good and I recommend it too. It has very many good points although it is not without its niggles (such as poor indexing of saved phone calls, not 100% firm contacts on memory card, cryptic LED display, £15 annual charge for its rather nice Internet Control Centre after 1st year, audio recording quality could be improved, it's set to dial up TrueCall when first installed "for the time and date", the comprehensive manuals are - well - too comprehensive to be easy to use, no display or keypad on main unit, etc).

 

In my view TrueCall is a better product that Comvurgent's "Secure Digital Call Recorder" which is available from places like Maplins for about twice the price of TrueCall. The Comvurgent recorder is also a quality product and has some nice features but it has some worrying flaws (such as limited duration of call recording resulting in no recording at all if exceeded, limited functions on the PC software provided, etc).

 

Note that the Comvurgent recorder is not designed to intercept calls in the way TrueCall is.

TrueCall can be set to record every call or just the ones you select.

 

If you set it to record just selected calls then be aware of what happens if you use the TrueCall unit on an extension (in other words your phone is NOT plugged into the back of the TrueCall unit). In such a setup, the other party will hear a loud chime tone when you press the button to record the call. Of course, you can say something like "That was my phone's battery warning". However I'm not persuaded that explanation is very convincing if the same caller keeps hearing you say that in each conversation!
