  1. @Rasmie thanks for that, I think due to the ceiling looking like a Christmas cake that plasterboard will be the quickest solution.
  2. Can anyone recommend a good plasterer who could plaster over a heavy stippled ceiling.
  3. Would imagine it’s checking road temperatures for freezing so they know when to put the gritters out.
  4. http://shet.news/xwqag. Here’s the link George, didn’t take long to find.
  5. But Scotland doesn’t meet the criteria where its current deficit sits and that’s unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.
  6. IGU could there be any possibility of any structural movement of the window frame, which could cause stress to be applied to one corner of the glass, resulting in the glass shattering, particularly if the glass was tight in the frame. I was aware of something similar happening due to bad blocks resulting in the window dropping slightly on one side.
  7. Also a silver ford custom van here today trying to sell pressure washers and compressors. Stopping at any business van, and various business properties.
  8. I’m sure that the planticrub at Tingwall had a wooden one for sale a few years back. They might be worth speaking to.
  9. I got da pack through the post, which also stated my bins will be delivered next week. That was over 3 weeks ago, still no bins. Spoke to the neighbours and only half of them has got the packs. You couldna mak it up..
  10. Anyone recommend someone local to supply and install an air to water heat pump. Any info would be appreciated.
  11. I've been told the owner has been made aware and the cat has now gone, I suppose better to know than always wonder what became of your cat.
  12. I've spoken to several folk in the community and one was going to contact the vet. The person who the cat ran out in front off, stopped and moved the cat to the side of the road and tried to find out who might have owned it. But difficult to start knocking on doors before 7am. A close neighbour has put it on Facebook and another said they would knock on doors later in the morning. Hopefully the owner can be tracked down.
  13. Whilst walking the dog this morning I was alerted to the fact a cat had been run down and unfortunately died. It's a grey/brown cat with a fluffy tail and is lying just to the right of the bus shelter next to the roundabout at Tingwall. Hopefully someone may know who the cat belongs to and let them know.
  14. Just checked and mine is working, your maybe right that they have forgotten to switch something on
  15. That's progress for you, they update the mast then some folk lose reception. Hopefully they will get it sorted soon.
  16. Just put on the tv to find I have no reception on any channel. Read somewhere they were working on the Scalloway mast today, so tried re-tuning, but that didn't help. Anyone else having problems?
  17. Just noticed that I have lost all reception from the Scalloway mast. Apparently they have been working on it today. Have tried retuning but that didn't help. Anyone else having problems?
  18. There is an ideal area near the front entrance where three cars can park nose to tail alongside the pavement. These spaces are handy to the crossing and front door and could easily be turned into a bus waiting area. if I were you I would approach the management and ask if they could dedicate this as a bus parking area. It would solve the problem at little cost. (Basically a tin of paint). I have friends who need use the bus service and not only does it allow them to do their own shopping, it's a great reason to get them out of the house and meeting people. This is an important service for the elderly and less able. It would meet the needs of the bus users and I'm sure would satisfy Tesco's risk assessments.
  19. Yeh, me thinks this was the biggest cop out I'd heard for a while. Give us cheaper electric and we will all live in overheated houses with all our windows open to cool them down. What planet are these people living on? Cheaper electric would help equalise the hiked charges we already pay to the heartless companies, who, when costs adjust, put up prices at the drop of a hat, yet take years to bring them down. They pay the decision makers millions per year, whilst our old and disabled struggle to heat their homes. It would also help recognise the additional cost we in Shetland face, due to the lower temperatures and wind chill.
  20. Couldn't agree more Urabug, if the big companies can sell their electricity at cheaper prices to the central belt and charge us a lot more, then VE surely can set their tariffs to reverse the norm and charge cheaper electric to rural areas.
  21. That's the 02 signal off at Scalloway again today. It's a strange world that they can communicate and get photos sent from the craft at Mars, but you can't get a signal from Scalloway . Hopefully it's not going to be off for days again.
  22. Was getting a weaker than normal signal on 02 up to yesterday. But it's completely dead now. No service what so ever in tingwall..
