  1. Serious drought of Arb workers?

    Underbidding is something I,ve done a lot of in the past 1990s : ( It took me a while to understand that this will win you lots of work .. yes .... crappy work .. Now I give a written price after talking the potential customer through the whole job . 90 % of our work now comes from recommendations.

There are some brilliant climbers out there ....but also plenty of walter mittys ... a

  11. Birds of prey .

    Plenty of Buzzards here in South Cheshire . One of our groundies spotted an object falling from the sky last week nr Sandbach Service M6 . The climber said it was some kind of bird ? Seconds later he heard a crash ? Bird of prey hitting a Pigeon ? ....

  15. Media Brainwashing

    Anyone who believes in accepting more migrants political or other .... is just betraying themselves and the country you live in . You people better not lay on your back and give in to this political correctness card . Otherwise its curtains for us all . Wake up and lets stop pussy footing around . Bolt .... For what its worth I admire your banter and contributions to this post . In my eyes you and your thoughts are detrimental to the prosperity of this once great country .
