    • They are not going to continue chasing for £37, so will stop at some point soon.  Will go back to Eon, who will just make a note of the debt on their records.
    • When a Debt Collection Agency (DCA) is assigned the debt after purchasing from the original creditors, they will add the debt to the credit record replacing the previous entry from the original creditors . The debt should be less than 6 years old from the date you defaulted making payments.   When you receive letters from a DCA, they should state the name of the original creditors you had the credit card, loan, overdraft or other debt with.   Do you still have the letters from the DCA's ?  If so, please provide details of the DCA, the original creditor named and the debt amount. If not, your online Credit Record history should contain information.   Never throw away any letters you receive from DCA's or Banks etc where they concern debts you owe. The letters may contain useful information.   Have you moved address since getting into debt ?  Did you provide your new address to all companies you owed money to ?
    • These vaccinations are going to be regular, I believe about every 6 months.  This is going to require local vaccination centres for years until they have a vaccine that provides longer protection.   Most GP surgeries are not going to be able to continually provide this vaccination service and provide all other services. They might help out during lockdown as a one off, but to continue having a constant flow of people for vaccination is not going to be possible.  My local GP surgeries are over subscribed, with it taking 3 weeks to get an appointment, so they are not taking part in this. Luckily we have a privately run NHS minor injuries unit with more room and they have been vaccinating patients.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Yes, a big problem.

If its being done on a regular basis by a child just to disrupt or get away from class for a few mins then a quiet word is required.

 

If its a genuine thing and you didn't let my child go to the toilet and they had an accident, I would be down to the school so fast you wouldn't believe it and i would be having "quiet" words between you, me, the head and board of govrrners.

what about children who have bladder problems?, if a child genuinely need go to the toilet then I think they should be allowed to go

I find with my work in schools it is always the same pupils who want to go to the toilet and over a 2 hour period generally in the same order as well. How long is the lesson period? if less than an hour then they really should have gone before the start. If it is say 10 minutes to the end of the lesson then they can be expected to wait.

However, many schools have created a rod for their own backs by letting or encouraging the consumption of water in lessons. More than 200ml of fluid consumed at a time encourages the production of urine, especially in the early afternoon so I would not want stop them going if the school allows water in classes at that age.

A child should be allowed to go to the toilet when ever he/she needs to. To prevent a child from going when there is a clear need to will create a situation that leads to "issues" in later years.

 

Primary school aged children are still learning about bladder & bowel control, so allow them some leniency or risk the ire of the parents and social problems developing with the child in later years.
