September Dinner Date. Thursday 16th September 2021.
September Dinner Date Thursday 16th September 2021 7pm
Okay, I’ve given in and booked places for a Chinese meal at - The Welcome Inn in Hornchurch.
I’m sure you all know where this is already, but here is the address anyway -
49, High Street Hornchurch, RM11 1TP.
The restaurant doesn’t seem to have it’s own website, so I can’t post a menu. They do takeaways and you can find a menu online, but I’m not sure how up to date they are.
All these buses go through Hornchurch – 165, 193, 256, 248, 256 and 372.
So, does anybody fancy this? xx
This discussion is now closed.

Do you buy your clothes online?
I love to shop online for many things. However, I rarely buy clothes online. I would love to because I have found some really nice clothes online that I can never find in the stores. I don't buy because I'm just afraid the clothes won't fit. I don't want to waste my time for returning/exchanging them. Do you buy your clothes online? What websites do you use? And what do you do when clothes you've order just don't fit?

Dept of Transport - MOT expiry extension
NEW RULES ON MOT TESTING
The Department for Transport have announced that any cars and vans due for an MOT from 30th March 2020 will have their MOT extended by 6 months.
You do not need to do anything to extend your vehicle’s MOT expiry date if it’s on
or after 30 March 2020. However, vehicles must be kept in a roadworthy condition and drivers can be prosecuted if they drive an unsafe vehicle.
Your vehicle will be automatically given a 6-month MOT exemption.
This will extend your current MOT expiry date by 6 months.
Example: Your vehicle’s MOT was due to expire on 3 April 2020.
This will automatically be extended to 3 October 2020.
You will need to get your MOT by this date.
This will allow vehicle owners to continue to be able to get to work where
this absolutely cannot be done from home or do essential shopping.
If your vehicle tax is due, you can tax your vehicle as soon as your
MOT due date has been updated.

Reminder to check sheds, garages etc. for trapped cats.
One of the family's cats recently went missing. Luckily, just when all hope had nearly been given up of finding him, he's been found after nearly 2 weeks of being locked in a shed while the owner had been away on holiday. Fortunately, someone looking after that family's pets had seen the lost poster, had to go to the shed for something and found the cat inside. Very weak but alive. At this time of year, when we're packing away our garden furniture etc. for the winter, please spare a few minutes to double check out any sheds, garages, outhouses etc before locking up, in case where one of our furry friend's curiosity might have got the better of them. This lucky little black cat's used up a few of his 9 lives !.

We found a deceased female black cat on gubbins lane this morning. Not chipped unfortunately. If anyone is missing their cat or knows someone who is. We took her to Lawton and stokes vets in oak road. Having 6 cats myself, I would want to know what has happened to my babies. 😥
Does anybody know of a good body lotion for really dry skin? My skin is like sandpaper at the moment and everything I have tried just seems to 'float' on my skin which is getting really tender. I have tried baby lotion, E45 and many others. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Council run car parking. Charges changed this week
It may have slipped under most peoples radar but Just been reading the latest "Living in Havering".
Charges for the use of ALL COUNCIL RUN car parks & on street parking across the Borough changed this week.
Some areas still have the free 30 minutes, but now many fewer than before, and for those and all others that don't - the charges have risen to - Up to 1 hour £1.50, up to 2 hours £2.50, up to 3 hours £3.50 & so on. if a longer period is permitted. Some car parks e.g. the Market Place still have the 2 hour max stay limit (but it's a massive increase on what was 1 hour 60p & 2 hours £1.20). These charges also apply to "pay & display" on-street parking bays too.
What is important to note is that there are now charges for Sunday parking too. Looks like most have a £1.50 flat charge, including the Market Place (and the 2 hour max stay limit also applies). The CEO's are going to be very, very busy over the next few weeks until the news gets out.
