Yea, that was a bit difficult. My youngest was 7 at the time and he struggled a bit - and they were pretty much invisible to other people. Walking into the tube station afterwards I had to really shield them from people walking past with cigarettes, totally oblivious to the fact they were there. I'd definitely go again, but wait till the kids are a little bigger.

Not a bad show for a tenner, and a great atmosphere. We went the last year that it was free, wouldn't mind spending to see them.

Not sure why people moan - If you don't want to pay £10, then don't go - Believe it or not, you have a choice !!!

Surely the ones they claimed to protect the public from can afford the £10 to still get there

anything similar available in Nottingham?

Not allowing people to change from electric to gas and use this scheme seems pretty stupid (yes, as you guessed, because that's my situation..)
Would be more of an improvement than from old gas to new gas, if that was really what they cared about.

so as usual its a load of rollocks- in that nothing quite qualifies

I think a gas boiler would have to be really old to be less than 70% efficient. My brothers is 10yrs old, had various repairs and still doesn't qualify. Mine was over 30 years old when I claimed on a similar scheme but they don't make boilers to last like that anymore.

If you think about it, it is theft.



Like free schooling or free healthcare, I suppose? :roll:

Should note - this only seems to be for Londoners, not oldies from anywhere else

This is not “free”
Some poor chap is paying for it though their taxes.

All media can be cut in seconds without the ability to use phones, mobile phones, internet, newspaper are blanked out.

If your really bothered then you should contact your local authorities and ask why they don't offer the same thing!!

received this pack some time ago. good stuff.

mug is great - now i can show the tea lady who 'demonised' me when she caught me at the office pantry boiling enough water for tea for myself + 1 extra person! i mean, no one else was waiting for tea so why boil the whole damn kettle eh?

the timer was a good idea but it kept falling, failed by the material it's made from.

was trying to use the window sticker for car tax disc but it wouldn't stick ... can't use thick soapy water otherwise the tax disc would be ruined. any tips?

Thanks, your order is now being processed! :thumbsup: Might be one of the lucky one's:santa:

Latest commentsPost comment

this scheme can work out very well if you ensure that your employer states clearly what they will want to charge for the bike at the end.
Mine states that they consider 3% of original value as fair market price.

the company also agreed to pass on the VAT saving on the value of the bike, so again negotiate with your boss.

for tax purposes we are warned that the benefit might affect 'working tax credits' and to check at

[url]www.taxcredits.inlandrevenue.gov.uk[/url]

otherwise we are told that this benefit is free from tax and national insurance up to £1000 per annum and this is not a benefit in kind and will not appear on your P11D.

It's good that they're trying to offer more alternatives to keep us fit but mark my words, they'll start making all cyclists pay road tax, afterall, the road works and alternative routes all cost money.

It's always best to try and wheel as many people as possible onto an offer and then when there's enough people, to start charging them to continue... call it an introductory offer, if you will.

glint

if your employer does the scheme you shouldn't be restricted to a single … if your employer does the scheme you shouldn't be restricted to a single shop.



Sadly whilst employers have the option of sourcing their own bikes, most sign up to a "scheme provider". Usually because of veiled threats that they will be stung for tax, or could get sued for H&S unless they use a provider.

Most providers contracts have restrictive clauses in them that allow the employer only to use them for managing the scheme and procuring bikes.

Some schemes, such as those operated by Halfords, Evans etc. limit you to just their shops. However Halfords can source almost any make of bike.

Other schemes such as Cyclescheme tend to use a number local bike shops (who were willing to pay to join the scheme and pay commission on each bike they sell).

HTH - Rufus.

if your employer does the scheme you shouldn't be restricted to a single shop, you go and get a quote (all big internet shops do it aswell) then a voucher is given by the intermediary cyclescheme.co.uk/ which you pay the shop with

This is a great idea, but does require your employer to sign up to … This is a great idea, but does require your employer to sign up to it.Unfortunately, mine won't so I'm stuck with the full price option.



True and some companies like mine will only deal with a particular supplier, Halfords but Halfords will get any bike that you want in so not too bad.

The other benifit of the scheme is that you only pay a monthly amount back as rent (over 2 years in my case) so a £500 bike will be costing you about £12 per month. At the end of the 2 years you pay a nominal fee in most cases nothing.

If this helps at least ONE person then it is worth posting.
