CHICKENS IN NEED

Chris and Tessa Keeley wonder if anyone has any old newspapers going spare for their chickens who are confined to barracks until the end of February to prevent the spread of Avian Flu? They are running low and papers are handy for lining the chicken ‘litter’ trays. Their chooks are fairly easy to please ………. broadsheet or tabloid are fine so long as the paper is not glossy!

Contact numbers are 02380 812415 (home number) or 07958 727369 (Tessa’s mobile) and tessakeeley@btconnect.com.  They are very happy to pick them up from your house.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR OIL TSAR

“As you may have gathered from my last communication regarding the January date for Oil ordering, I was still not in tune with the calendar!

ALL order deadlines will be 9am on a Wednesday starting with Wednesday 4th January 2017. Orders will be accepted on the basis that I will place them at the best price I can obtain on the day.

Subsequent dates are:-

February 8th; March 15th; May 17th; July 19th; September 20th; October 18th; November 15th and December 6th.

As usual I will send out reminders a week or so before deadline dates and deadline times will remain 9am on the relevant Wednesday. In general, delivery can usually be expected within 7 working days from the deadline date.

Note that there is no order date in April, June or August. Equally, the reminder in May could be either earlier or only a few days before the deadline as I am trying to plan a holiday in early May!

Best wishes to you all for a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Mike”
