Well, well, my shock turned up today :o following some Emithers and phone calls threatening a visit from me and my mate Dave Morris (it was a Morris from Tewksbury who took Curtis hostage at knifepoint with the 'hostesses'. Hopefully he put 2+2=5 lOl ) My initial reaction was not to pay the annoying little Fek but the Buddhist in me makes me want to be a better person, so I'm going to pay him when he sends the invoice - I'll let him stew for a bit though lOl
I'd also like to thank Brian (Gripperod of this Parish) for his moral support and also calling around to the premises, and also to Pash who kindly offered to come with me. All's well that ends well, I suppose :roll:

Cheers! not sure why Adam is thanking me, he did as much as me to get the shocks back with his quietly menacing txts and emails. It was sort of good cop bad cop..... in the end I think we just wore him down and he realised we weren’t going away.

But while we are thanking people Edd also offered to get involved and call in for us as he is fairly local so thanks to him for the offer also!

Cheers, but glad you got the results and I didn't try. Sometimes a third party negotiation can turn shady downtrodden characters into even bigger trauma heads! Wounded animal syndrome?.......but a big stick and a carrot works every time! ;)
