Re: White goods

PS I believe that Manias is no longer part of the Expert chain ... ...As far as I know the shop is still owned and run by the same person so the service should be just as good but I don't know if leaving the Expert chain has altered his prices. We bought a new tumble drier from Manias about a month...

I'd suggest to Mum that she puts a reminder in her diary (paper or electronic) for mid-November. 'Er Indoors swears by putting reminders on her phone as it's certain to be within earshot when the alarm reminder sounds.

Re: Hand Built Trailer - registration?

I don't know about regs for hand built trailers but generally trailers and the vehicle that tows them have to be registered together as a unit.

Edit: ..."tows"... replaces "tops".

Re: 2020 car tax
