I used Marple Heating and Plumbing last year to do a service and boiler repair.  Very nice guy.  If I remember correctly he was one of the people British Gas laid off.  His details are on Facebook.

Hello, can anyone recommend a local plumber? Paul the Marple Plumber is not responding to messages or texts. Any recommendations would be welcomed, thanks in anticipation of any information.

I've just asked Paul to check and we cannot identify any messages or texts from you. You haven't emailed his business email or used the form on his web site as those messages come to me too. I can't find any emails from you in his personal account either and there are no messages from you on FB, which I also monitor. If you sent texts during December they may not have arrived as he was overseas and using WiFi only. If you send a new message via the web site then we will try to work out what is happening. https://www.marpleplumber.co.uk/contact.html

Main Web Site Updates / Re: The Iron Bridge Project Diary

Iron Bridge Project Diaries Migrated to new web site

Migrating the Iron Bridge Project from the old web site was a task I'd put off due to the daunting amount of material generated during a period of more than 11 years. However, with the bridge discovered to be at risk again in the winter of 2021 the time seemed right to get the job done.

https://www.marple.website/brabyns-park-iron-bridge.html

This new section of the web site now pulls together the pages created during the huge community effort of the Iron Bridge Restoration Project, the more recent Iron Bridge Viewing Platform Refurbishment and the disappointing news that the Iron Bridge is at risk again only 14 years after Peter Clarke, the late Anne Hearle and I concluded 7 years of hard work to secure its future.

To read more about why the bridge is at risk again, follow this link:

On my road, nearly every new vehicle that's appeared is a bl**dy huge SUV, mostly used for conveying a small child to and from school.
something of a sweeping generalisation perhaps???

One of my (numerous) complaints against this government is that recent changes in vehicle tax have greatly reduced the incentive to buy small, economical (and therefore low emission) vehicles. Unless you buy electric your yearly tax is much the same whatever the size of the vehicle. On my road, nearly every new vehicle that's appeared is a bl**dy huge SUV, mostly used for conveying a small child to and from school.

Many of the things that look like SUVs will be MPVs.  SUVs have 4 wheel drive, whilst an MPV doesn't.  Stylistically MPVs look quite similar to SUVs.  And as an owner of an MPV, I got one for multiple reasons including that MPVs have good amounts of space inside, which is useful for holidays and travel.  Or just putting a buggy in.  They also make life much easier when it comes to child car seats which - to be blunt - are massive.  My parents have a standard estate car and have car seats of their own for the children, and had to give up on one of them because it was too big for the back of their car.  It was unusable.  In our MPV we can actually fit three child seats on the back row - an impossibility with most smaller cars.

Now my children are getting older and one of them doesn't need a car seat any more.  By the time we replace our car, we may not need the size of an MPV day to day.  But I understand why people have them because I have one. 

I look at pictures of my parents car from the 1980s.  It's tiny in comparison.  But we didn't need child seats.  And the Vauxhall Chevette we had wouldn't survive as well in a crash as my modern MPV...

(P.S. my children walk to school so you don't need to worry there.)

And all the while, NoX emissions from vehicles is falling (despite there being more of them),
A very interesting point - but to counteract this vehicles are getting bigger:
https://www.iea.org/commentaries/global-suv-sales-set-another-record-in-2021-setting-back-efforts-to-reduce-emissions
This refers to CO2 emissions, but NoX will follow the trend.
