    • Thanks dx.   While I understand that the CPR request must only refer to the Particulars of Claim, if the OP was challenged in the way you say could he not just whip out the previous letters he received where the accusations against him are very, very specific?   Maybe the solution is to make the CPR request mirror the general PoC.  Maybe ask for    - which goods the claimant is referring to and which balance of the price the defendant retained for himself in PoC 1  Whilst the defendant was employed by the claimant the defendant sold goods belonging to the claimant receiving full price and purporting to account therefor but only accounting for part thereof and retaining the balance for his own benefit    - a breakdown of how the figure of £526.95 was arrived at including the date, time and amount of each alleged selling of goods    - copies of, or links to, any evidence in any form they possess of the alleged selling of goods.   Apologies if I'm making a pig's ear out of this, I know very little about CPR especially in a  complex case like this, and am thinking out loud.   I think it would be a good idea if the OP would post a draft of what he proposes to send and we can then fine tune it.
    • Her name is Amanda Bell, she's having a drink with him on his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Guy.Alexander.Bell He got caught out a while back on a Google review from an "Amanda XXXXXXX" and that was her maiden name before she married him, he quickly edited that review. There's another load of reviews on YELL and I'd bet my house they're all fake, certainly the one from Amanda will be.
    • I don't think it makes much odds now.   The tactic of waiting for OPS' WS was so you could counter their lies in your own WS.  But as you've sent your WS to the court that's it, the WS is finished.  You might as well send yours to OPS now.    If OPS mess you around by not providing their WS they are digging their own grave!
    • Good Afternoon guys!   Name of the Claimant: National Car Parks Limited   Claimants Solicitors: BW Legal   Date of issue: 27th October 2020   Date for AOS: 5th November (AOS was completed on 10th November)   Date to submit Defence: 29th November (This is a Sunday so: 27th November)   What is the claim for:  1.The Claim is for the sum of £189 being the contractual charge due from the Defendant in respect of a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) for a contractual breach which occurred on 05/11/2018 in the private car park/land at Lincoln Brayford Street Lincoln LN5 7BJ in relation to a ******** registration mark *** ****.   2.The PCN was issued as the Defendant failed to comply with the terms and conditions, as displayed.   3.Despite demands, the charge remains unpaid.   The Claim also includes Statutory Interest pursuant to section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at a rate of 8% per annum (a daily rate of £O.04) from 05/11/2018 to 26/10/2020 being an amount of 29.   The Claim also includes £60.00 recovery costs as set out in the Terms and Conditions and in the ATA AoS Code of Practice."     What is the value of the claim?   Amount Claimed: £189 Court Fees:  £25 Legal Rep Fees: £50 Total Amount: £264   ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A little more information from me:   This alleged offense occurred two years ago and the vehicle in question was a hire car, hired by my small company. I'm genuinely unable to recall the event.   I did drive that particular vehicle most of the time. I do not recall if I informed them I was driver at that point (I may have done to avoid damaging the company as these sorts of letters fall on my desk) or if the hire company informed them that I was the named driver.    I realise that I've left it quite late to do my defence, I've been reading the forums and pondering what to put for some time. I feel like a defence of "I don't know" sounds ridiculous but I also would rather take my chances playing their game and potentially ending up in court.   I cannot imagine they would want to get to that point for the expenses they will incur for £264 or less. Happy to be corrected on this if wrong?    Any tips and advice is gratefully received?   Thank you.

After realising there are many craftspeople about.I thought it would be nice to open a thread for many that work this way.

Whether full time or part time if there is such a thing.

I realise many put many hours in perhaps for little return,but are happy to create.

 

If you do such a thing whether for profit or fun tell us what you do and maybe send a photo or two that shows your craft.

 

I do not know what many do but would like to know.

 

You could make cakes,you could bake,you could embroider,knit,carve.I have not a clue what you may do but would like to know.

 

Are you a craftperson.Working away somewhere in your home,outside perhaps.Where do you do this craft.And tell us how you are doing.

 

What it makes you feel like.Does it stress you some times,does it fail some times,have you succeeded someway,made a few pounds perhaps.

 

Have you because of the economy or other related things had to create there has been no other way to survive.To make a few pounds.

 

Well let us see how many are about.If nobody another thought out of a cluttered mind.Made some space.

 

Have some fun myself,but just starting so will wait and see what others create out of anything.And how you do it and made that first step maybe years ago.Maybe months ago,days ago,hours ago.

Come on in and tell me.

 

Wherever you are in the world come here tell us your story.Otherwise i will be failing and wondering where it all went wrong.

And will not sleep for days.:-(

I am hoping to hear some Tales Of The Unexpected.

I love to do many handicrafts, in the past few weeks I have made jams and jellies....plum jam, spiced damson jelly, hedgerow jelly and blackberry and apple jam.

I crochet and knit and have 3 projects on the go at the moment a blanket/throw for a friend when he moves into his new home in the spring, a set of mats to protect a glass table for another friend and one I am most busy with is making hats and bonding blankets for premature babies, I belong to a group on FB that co ordinates this and makes baby gowns for angel babies from donated wedding gowns, plus they fund raise for special cribs so parents who have had a still birth can keep the baby with them for as long as they wish whilst in hospital.

What a wonderful start to this thread.

You are so busy. Jams.Do you store them to have a feast in the winter time.Getting visions of toast being toasted on a fork a open fire,lashings of butter and jam on homemade bread.

 

Or maybe i feel sometimes have a sale somewhere,maybe a church hall,a field sale, or sell some not all to raise funds for the group you are in.

You help make hats and bonding blankets for premature babies what a craft to have.And helps so many.

 

Angel Babies ,how moving,what a special person you are.And your group are.I had never heard of this before.

Must be so moving creating the gowns.

I admire you and your group greatly.

I also crochet stuff, mainly animals, family and friends have got to the point where they try to guess what they'll get this time!

 

I make baby items for my local maternity hospital which are sold to raise funds for SCBU.

 

Would love to have done this as a job, unfortunately my hands no longer always co-operate, though I find crochet easier on them than knitting.

I used to knit, mainly the lovely fair isle jumpers but found it hard to find the patterns, the more pattern and colours the better. Not done one for a long time, have also done redicut rugs.

I have not written any poetry for a long time either, slacking!

Not so much crafts as such but I'm a model engineer I suppose. My special interest is in Radio Controlled models and for many moons have built and raced / flown models of all sorts.

 

At the moment I'm enjoying the challenge of building and flying 'drones' or more accurately - multi-copters. Since the mid-eighties I've built RC Cars, Planes, Helicopters, Boats and a few creepy halloween 'toys' from childrens dolls.

 

The halloween ones are usually the most fun when they unexpectedly start moving, waving their arms and legs and the favourite bit is when the head starts spinning rapidly. All using bits out of an RC plane/helicopter that gives me perhaps six or seven independent sets of motion/interaction. More seriously I used o have a little side-line building and repairing models for others as well as buying damaged ones and re-furbishing them. However, I don't really get the time these days.

 

My current personal projects are: A racing quadcopter that transmits live pictures from its point of view to my portable screen (nearly finished, just needs final assembly and then hooking up to a pc for tuning). A 56" wingspan scale WWII P51 Mustang that's been built to be as close to scale as possible which is electrically powered. (the build is finished but the power system needs tuning and installing) and a 68" wingspan Extra 330 Aerobatic plane with a 20cc petrol engine (ready to test fly once I have the time to dedicate a day or so to doing just that).

 

It's fun at the moment because of the amount of public interest over the 'drone' aspect of the hobby where a lot of sensationalising has been done with regards to their capabilities and the use of aerial cameras vs privacy. As such I'm happy to provide answers to anyone if they have any concerns.

 

Before anyone gets too worried, I'm insured up to £10m for public liability and hold competent operator certificates from the BMFA (British Model Flying Assoc.)

 

 

EDIT:

 

there's a daft little video here

if you're concerned over what can be seen by a drone in flight.

I'm into jam making and foraging food for free.

 

I also have a collector's dolls house that I make things for in miniature, very painstaking but great when something turns out well. The raw ingredients aren't expensive, it just takes imagination.

Softly as the evening falls

I thought I heard your gentle call

But where you are there is no pain

How will I ever feel the same again?

It's so hard knowing you are no longer here

I have cried so many tears

Taken far to soon, to young to die

All we do is to sit and cry

Our hearts were broken on that sad day

Gone ahead to where the Angels play

To know we will never see you grow, hurts so much

Your smile, your skin, so soft to touch

Out of sight, but not out of mind

Ties of love, do us all bind

Oh, sweet baby, peace be thine

Loved and remembered for all time.

This is the Golden Tapestry I have made using metallic thread.

 

 

I make quilts for charity and for family, the work that goes into them can never be recompensed. It is a amazing people will go to certain stores and spend big money for something that is not f as high quality as we make, yet we ask the same price or slightly less people will not pay. I do machine embroidery so I charge £10.00 for a two thousand stitches. I have to cover, my thread, stabiliser and workmanship. If I ruin a garment , I am the person who has to pay for the replacement. I only embroider for people I know and trust.

 

 

I make bespoke cushions from scratch, I love applying the 3D embroidery to these, I also make lace using the embroidery machine

I absolutely love that tapestry. Was it a kit or did you do it yourself? (Really hoping it's a kit so I can make one, but expect it isn't!)

I belong to a group in OZ Comfort Quilts against Cancer. it is based n Western Australia the quilts we make are sent to ladies who have breast cancer. Lately we have been making quilts for gentlemen also. We include a hand knitted hate with each quilt. Every month I send off a bundle of blocks and the ladies in WA assemble the quilts, saves on postage for me. Fabric weighs a lot.

 

 

I have made countless bags and given them away over the years, every bride in our family gets a special purse for her day. I used to make the wedding dresses, but living over here makes it a bit awkward apart from my daughter in law, who came over for her fittings and then I took the dress to OZ for the final fitting and wedding.

No, it isn't a kit madwoman. It took me about three months to make, I did it block by block and then fitted it together like a jigsaw puzzle. My house was covered in gold thread, as it tangles so easily. There are tips to help lessen this.

If you plot it out as a graph, it does come together. I also use my computer to do the digitising of embroidery designs.. Those who do machine embroidery know what I am talking about.

 

 

Of course, you could cheat and do something as an applique.
