Hearing a lot about everybody not getting enough Vit D due to lack of sunshine. Does anybody take it and have views on the benefits? I,m going to get some because can't see us having any sort of summer again.
Knockaloe Hall (Octel Sports and Social Club) 28 Bridle Rd Bromborough
Built in the 1850ís, Knockaloe Hall sits in 11 acres of beautiful grounds and was originally owned by professor Nance as a working manor house.
He gave the house to the community in the 1930ís for everyone to enjoy.
In 1957 the council sold Knockaloe Hall to Octel Fuel Plant as the private club for the employees and families, the hall was known for 50 years as the Octel Sports and Social Club.
In 2006 it was sold to the Anderson family, opened to the community once more and changed to The OC Bar at Knockaloe Hall. Now refurbished and modernised it has been tastefully brought back into the 20th century. With some of the old traditions kept and new ideas brought in, the Knockaloe has something for everyone.
The cruise ship 'Azores' ,which was at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal yesterday, was built in 1948 as the liner 'Stockholm' and achieved notoriety in 1956 when she rammed and sank the Italian liner 'Andrea Doria' off the coast of the U.S.A.
A friend of mine had her car broken into and stole her company laptop and satnav in Wallasey.
The Dell laptop (silver and black) had confidential information on, but has been remotely wiped by her company, and my understanding is that it is now useless. The serial and asset number will stil be on the unit.
However this may not stop the thief from removing the hard drive and trying to sell it on.
Please be aware of this if someone tries to sell it on.
Having a clear-out I have found 3 phones I no longer need, a Cable and Wireless cwd8500 Dect cordless phone, a Geemarc cc10 analogue cordless phone set of 3, and also a BT Equinox 12oo Dect cordless phone.
The Cable and Wireless phone has a bit of damage on the front near the ear piece but still works fine. It's digital and has a small colour display
The Geemarc is an old phone set of 3 cordless phones - old enough to have telescopic ariels! Tested this and it works but is a bit crackly.
All the batteries were flat so have been on charge to enable me to test them.
Also have a BT Equinox 1200 Dect cordless phone but no batteries to test this at the moment.
Please can anyone spot a replacement 3 pin mains charger on Ebay or anywhere else, for my Samsung GT-C3520 ? Cant find my charger at all , and I like this cheap simple phone. Ive tried Ebay myself without any luck and sadly Amazon is out of stock .
The story is in the title. About a week ago B&M opened a new store in the old Homebase premises in Bromborough more or less opposite Christ the King church just off the A 41.I have visited the place twice and they have a large range of food and household goods etc. at what seem to be very reasonable prices. The shop appears to be very well patronised judging by the amount of cars present on the large car park, whether this is down to initial curiosity or not only time will tell. They have a gardening section with a good selection of plants and I was most impressed with their range of fencing and associated gardening materials. This new shop is a welcome addition to already excellent shopping facilities in Bromborough.
