    Prescription sunglasses

    I went down the Specsavers route for prescription Polaroids. I bought two pairs of glasses and was given a 50% off voucher if I wanted another pair. Used this towards my bi focal glasses and ended up paying £45. Can’t fault them 👍👍

    Help please

    Try going to your nearest available fly fishing venue. Speak to the person in charge. Explain your dilemma and see if you (or them) can cast the lines out and observe the action of each line. They will be very accommodating in all probability especially if they’re a bit quiet. Ps - welcome to...

    Fly tying electrical clips.

    This was about the best deal I could find for 50. Looks as if they’re UK based as well.

    When you poach a club water and discover that the club chair is a professional cameraman...

    Fire an e-mail off to your Police & Crime Commissioner outlining the incident. Ask them to explain the lack of response from the Police. Point out that an offence has been committed and that it even has a Home Office code for this very crime. Then, sit back and await a response.
