COL tenants now have to pay their water bills themselves rather than have them included in the rent. If you are a single occupant and can't have or don't want a water meter, Thames Water offer a…Continue
It looks like someone has left their car lights on in the car park. I can't really see the registration from here but it looks like it starts LG67 and it is parked next to where the motorbikes park.…Continue
Taking my bin bag down earlier I was greeted with this lovely site. What is wrong with people, can they not put items in bins or leave bulkier stuff in a more tidier manner. People walk through there…Continue
"The guy I spoke to the other day has told me false information. If your property can have water meters installed, then you can not have single person discount. It is only for properties that can't have them installed."
"I agree about the bedrooms. We had a visit this morning re a water meter but cannot have one due to the position of our stopcock. We will be moved to a lower tariff as two people. We’re on £444 a year and will be on about £300 so…"
COL tenants now have to pay their water bills themselves rather than have them included in the rent. If you are a single occupant and can't have or don't want a water meter, Thames Water offer a single occupancy discount.

"This year's tree doesn't look much better, loads of bright lights on the ground and hardly any on the tree, especially on the bottom half. They should either get rid of the white lights and add more coloured lights on the tree, or put the…"

"Well it's a start, hopefully they have had a warning and if anything else happens they have their names and addresses. These are the same boys who were smashing glass in the children's play area mentioned on here earlier this year and were…"
"I am guessing it is the same boys that are always hanging around the estate. They are always up to no good, they swear at residents and throw things at people's windows.
There was a firework display by the pond on the estate this evening and…"
"These alarms are now going off too regularly and it is ridiculous. I think they went off every night last week and one night they went off twice. Residents are getting so fed up with it they are now not bothering evacuating. Every time the…"
