    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry.

    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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

Hello All

If any of you can offer advice on how to take this forward, we would very much appreciate your help.

 

After a pretty terrible holiday this summer, my wife and I wrote a detailed letter of complaint to Thomson asking for compensation. We sent a PDF including our complaints and images of the sub-standard accommodation.

 

Their offer of compensation was just £160 of vouchers (to spend on one of their holidays!!!), which doesn't compensate us at all for a miserable holiday.

 

I'll try to sum up the complaints:

 

1) There was a large area (more than a square metre) of damp, efflorescent mould growing out from the wall next to my bed. Smell of damp in bedroom. Asked rep for something to be done but all they did was to scrape it off and paint over it. It had grown back within a couple of days. We asked if we could move but were told this wasn't possible.

 

2) Large cockroaches coming from drains in bathroom and through hole in ceiling

 

3) Apartment was not clean - mould in bathroom, on shower curtain, dirty toilet, hole in ceiling (from where cockroach came), woodwork on doors up to knee height was damp/rotten, smell of drains

 

4) Had to leave key in apt door if we wanted cleaner to come in - no security

 

5) Booked a car through the rep which didn't turn up - wasted whole day of holiday.

 

6) Tried to use Thomson's 24hr customer service line because we had no way of contacting rep directly, but received no response

 

7) Owner came straight into our apartment unannounced while i was putting sun tan lotion on my wife's back - could have been VERY embarrassing - no respect for our privacy.

 

We have holidayed in Greece for the last 20 years. We understand the difference between simple/basic accommodation and an apartment that is a potential health risk. The rep said that their Health & Safety inspector was coming in the following week to check the apartment - we requested a copy of the report (for our own health concerns) but were refused by customer service.

 

As you can imagine we are pretty fed up. Our only holiday of the year completely ruined.

 

We declined Thomson's offer of voucher compensation. They have written back saying that they think it's a fair offer.

 

What should we do next....?

 

All help and advice appreciated.

Thanks!

Gandolfi

Did you get any pics?

Did you report it properly to the rep?

 

If you think £160 by cheque would be acceptable write and tell them in writing. If you get a no you can take stock... mark your letter "without prejudice" if you make an offer in it and make it clear it is made at an early stage to avoid litigation, that way your back is covered later should you want to sue for more. KEEP YOUR LETTERS POLITE AND SIMPLE!
