Could you tell me if anyone in your family is over 80 and a blue badge holder and has no one to cut their grass or hedge, Does the council cut their grass and hedge for free, South Lanarshire said they only do this for council tenants not for home owners, But Glasgow City Council as far as I know do it for free, for council and home owners.

My local gardener takes 30 to cut the hedge that is 3 cuts a year 90
So my husband might manage to cut the grass , as the gardener takes 20 each cut, So that is what we will do , a lot cheaper than the council,, they want 320 for the season for grass and hedge cutting,

I hate to see neglected gardens ,but I believe if you have paid factoring charges and rates and taxes all your days ,surely over 80s could get it done for free, Why does Glasgow City Council do it for people with bought houses and others do not,?

To be fair how would the council afford to cut millions of peoples privately owned gardens when they're over 80?

I don't know whether there is a branch of Age Concern UK near to you but I contacted them for a friend and they put her in touch with a guy who now cuts her lawn for a lot less than the gardener who she first contacted out of the local paper. If you do have a local branch they may also know of any other organisations that could help.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I'm not easily offended, but I am offended by the so called experts who say a no deal brexit will be a disaster, or about us crashing out.

If these expert know the future can I have the winning Euro lotto numbers?


I would have posted in the brxit page but its been closed

Just like medical experts can tell you the likelyhood of a certain percentage of the population getting cancer, but they couldn't give you the individuals' names (as it is two completely different things - macro forecasting vs micro...)

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

My mum is in hospital and before I went to the ward I wanted an ice cold drink, but not water, all they had in the M&S shops was fruit flavorued sparkling water, which is a no no.
I though a coke, but yet again proper coke wasn't there an the only had the diet crap, so I had to have water.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Went to open the fanlight in the kitchen and the hinge has disinitegrated. It's one of those fancy multiple link jobbies that are used on UPC windows.

Happened the other side several years ago and I fixed it with a small bolt and nylock nut. Looks like I'll need to do the same here if I can remember how to get the damn thing out.
