    • Part of the POFA rules for creating a liability to pay a parking co is identifying the land they control so is there another palce of the incorrect name? If so then photographs of the other site will prove that your vehicle cnat possibly have been there as the images they will produce wont match the background etc. If however Bromhall developments is the name of their employer would the land in question be known by the same name for the entire development?   The POC is the usual rubbish and inaccurate one they cribbed from Gladstones so can be attacked in your outline defence.   Now I have googled Broomhall developments and they are an Irish Co that has bult a similar named housing estate in IRELAND. ther is also  a Broomhall gateway development plan for SCOTLAND but nothing in England, let alone Sheffield specifically   defence has to be in a fortnight after the deadline for the AOS assuming you get that in on time.   On google noseyneighbour I can see signs near to the parking bays that say permit holders only so unless you have a permit the signage doesnt apply to youas you would be prohibited fro parking there anyway. So with this in mind were you parked in a bay or on the road? Were you visiting or connected to the property that bay was allocated to and if so can you find out if the bay is part fo the property and noted in the deeds. If it is then it has nowt to do with VCS.   So you are going to grab some pictures and then you compare these to the web site of Broomhall development in ireland and that will be part fo your evidence   Also ask council when the Close was adopted by council as it appears to be a public highway
    • Ericsbrother   If I had the opportunity at the time I would have argued the value on the Court claim, however this wouldn't have changed by a significant amount.  So asking for it to be set aside is probably not going to end this in the long run.   No we don't owe any money to the business.   We have a good set of books and records.  No account filed as of yet.   The company is still 'active' on companies house and has not been dissolved.  We only received the Notice of enforcement a few days ago.       What makes you think they can force entry into a domestic property?      
    • Sorry but I think that it is rather precipitative giving advice – and rather over-generalised advice at that – until we understand more detail about the circumstances.
    • now the terms will specify that they can cancel if weather if bad etc and you have to accept that but by doing so they have to accept that the voucher's term is extended or they must refund for their failure to perform to the contract. essentially you should have asked for a refund on a no fly day and they would have to comply and by continuing to  accept things you were blindly accepting alterations to the original conrcat and that makes things more difficult. i would write again giving them 14 days to refund as they ahve filed to perform to their contractual obligations and then sue them if they still dont cough up. However, this meaqns you must follow through with the threat of cort action so before you start you need to read up on the relevant consumer legislation and also about performance of contracts

In the immeasurably sensible years of long ago we had leather shoes with leather soles, the soles could be repaired and consequently they lasted a long time. When ' rubber soles' were first introduced there was some attempt to get the soles to match the life time of the uppers. Then along come 'fashion' shoes with man-made uppers. These simulated the appearance of leather but disintigrated within a year - but hey they're fashion shoes! Obviously there was no need to fit hard wearing soles so, cheap material was used, the sole was thinned and the heel ( the weakest point ) was made of 'cardboard' with a plastic veneer. What has happend is that this sole was transfered, for reasons of cost, to proper leather shoes. So that although the uppers may last five or more years the soles would be worn through in less than a year. The consumers have not cottoned on that this has happend and we are seeing the waste on a grand scale of an expensive natural product - leather!

True.

I still have old school shoes which occasionally I get resoled (thin rubber under the sole)

Then every year a go through a couple of pairs that inevitably fail even if not the cheapest.

Even the expensive Clarks fall apart within weeks, since they moved their factory to a "cheaper" location (using cheaper material)

However I struck lucky a couple of years ago when I bought a pair of £120 boots from Russel and Bromley and despite the heavy use they're still ok.

Just luck!

Erm! This thread, consisting of one post which, to me looks odd anyway, is three and a half years old. I doubt the OP will be coming back to respond which then begs the question, why post on such an old thread?

:) i'll add to the aged thread.

still have a pair of elderly loakes, leather resoled (traditionally) a few times and still going and looking good. but, now the traditional shoe repairer has gone (there only seems to be timpson round here), and some of loake shoes are now made in india (whether that affects the quality or not?).

anyway, was thinking of buying different, but which (quality) brit made ones?


IMO

I remember when I was abut 10 and I had to wear my Granny's boots to school they had zips up the side and were hopeless when trying to slide in the snow.

 

Did I get 'ribbed' about them or what, think that's why I still hate going into shoe shops.


 
 

Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)
