There have been many cases of NT being extremely greedy. An organisation called 'Friends of the National Trust' was set up specifically to fight against their recent money-grabbing ways. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1277184/Allotment-holders-wage-war-greedy-National-Trust-rent-hiked-400.html There was an excellent documentary which detailed how a couple bought and did up a NT outbuilding to run as a hospitality venture, then the NT put up the rent/lease charges by about 500%, AFTER the couple had spent a fortune of their own money on doing the place up. 'That's what independent valuers say the rent should now be' they were told.
And whilst they do have a large cash reserve it’s mostly restricted funds.
That’s an odd view of the National Trust, without which we’d have lost hundreds of fine houses and thousands of acres of accessible land.
I wouldn’t worry about it, NT is a dreadful charity and they’ve plenty of cash reserves. Using Groupon is a way for them to generate additional income from an untapped market
The 2021 version Frame is 24.9mm thick and sits off the wall about 1 or 2mm
My C1 (Jan 2021) has the EVO panel as do all from late 2021 I believe.
LOL. There's the Catch 22, guts have to go somewhere and Samsung's One Connect box take on it is definitely the best attempt so far. Thought the Frame was still a couple of inches thick though? 'Floating' also lets you do this...
See I think the opposite, I have a BX and its a real bugbear to me that its got a screen that's literally a few millimetres thick but then has to sit 2 inch away from the wall. I have a Samsung frame in the next room and that looks way better (when its switched off anyway LOL)
Also available at box for the same amount so could be the new price going forward.
Get to treat the Mrs tomorrow on Mothers Day with a £50 trip out with the fam for free - I might get a bit of action tomorrow night as a result.....
Personally, I really enjoyed visiting Chartwell. Whether it is worth the hassle of using public transport to get to, I can't say. Everyone is different so only you can decide that as I wouldn't know how easy it is or how long it would take you to get there. If you enjoy modern history and find Winston Churchill's life story interesting like I do, it will be right up your street. The house was definitely the highlight of the visit for me. You get a ticket to enter it at a certain time after your arrival (our entry time was an hour after arrival). No problems taking photos inside. Only flash photography is prohibited. The NT volunteers in each main room provided lots of interesting info and background stories about the Churchills as well as the history of some of the objects in each room which really added interest to our tour and why we ended up spending more than two hours in the house, longer than most and more than we expected. The gardens are also pleasant to wander around but so early in the season were a little bare in the walled gardens. The magnolia, prunus and daffodils are in full bloom though.
Can you use euromillions ?
Thanks. I've been trying to convince my other half for chaetwell but it's bit far out from London and I've to rely on public transport. How is chartwell? Worth the hassle?

I would like to offer my sincere apology for all those affected by my inappropriate association of this item to one worn by Herr Flick. I promise to try to no longer mention when I feel that such an association exists.
It looks nothing like it. Your associations are far off. Almost any coat could vaguely resemble what he wears. Peacoat because of the bottoms, any long coat because it's long, any coat with a collar/corduroy collar. If it was that exact coat then fair enough but you will be extremely busy over the next few days if your aim is to comment on any jacket post saying it looks like his coat. Completely off topic and unhelpful as well.
Looks like OOS already
Anyone else struggling to add to cart / order this? Website seems botched.
Picked up a black one the other month and a nice nice jacket and well fitting too and also warm. If I didn’t have loads of jackets already I’d have picked up this in another colour
No it's not. It's garbage. Poorly laid out and far too much wasted space.
The other Pixar Art books go for much more and this is a good general overview of there work presented in a nice format.
This is a very disappointing book. Looks good on outside but lacks substance. There are better Pixar Art books available.
Heat…I remember the first pixar short i saw was i think Tin Toy… Based on John Lasseters’ new baby?… I was amazed - then i saw Jurassic Park in the cinema 😳
Different kind of books really. This has a better balance of text and images. If you just want visual Pixar eys-candy I agree The Art of Pixar might be a better investment if your prepared to pay nealy 3 times the price.

Bury Arcade Club is HUGE - 3 massive floors, all packed with machines (not just arcade games but pinball, consoles and even basketball and skeeball games) but always with plenty of space even on a busy weekend. It's so big that unlike the smaller options you never feel cramped in there, and there's so many machines that if something you want to play is occupied then there's countless other options, and they have plenty of hand sanitizer about. . I've been there a number of times during Covid (including a couple of weeks ago) and always been absolutely fine - it's all pretty easy to avoid close contact with people. It's well worth the effort to get there - it's a 2 1/2 hour drive for me but well worth it. Even the food and drink prices are reasonable in there too.
How can it cost £20 for one in Sheffield but only £16 for one in bury that is far bigger (confused) Just looked up the one in bury and it looks brilliant But it is cramped place not much space and I find it hard to believe if you are going spent a full day in there you are not going come away with covid? Full of kids packed out inside and all crammed together puts me off going ;(
The one in Bury is the biggest in Europe, I've been to the other one in Leeds and a few others and they just don't compare. If I was travelling from a far I'd want to go to the best place, rather than wasting my time; an extra 30 minutes in the car isn't exactly a problem. This is a similar situation across the country, there are a few arcades that opened in Liverpool which use Mame cabinets. I agree, being only 30 miles away from Bury is really amazing, but if I was 100 miles away I'd still make the trip every so often. It's good, but not a crack on the Bury one; but that makes sense considering it's the bigges in europe.
I can't recommend Arcade Club enough, been a regular visitor for a few years now ever since going on a stag do - Bury just tips it for me but Leeds is great too, and both are tremendous value for money. The problem is that after you've been there all the others look rubbish in comparison. I was really excited about Pixel Bunker in Milton Keynes opening, as it's an hour or so closer to me than Bury, but really shouldn't have bothered as half the machines were either completely out of order and switched off or had some sort of fault. It was virtually the same price as Arcade Club too, but for a limited 3 hour session as opposed to all day (and despite that we still left early)
Well I live in Sheffield and my brother lives in Swindon, so just trick me into thinking you are my brother and then come and stay for free :D
They should offer a £30 parking only option as I'm not overly interesting in visiting their buildings, but do sometimes park there in order to go walking/biking. It should also be for the car, not per person - the reason I left the NT was when Clumber Park tried to charge us per head for the occupants of the car we were in.
not a deal, not new. if you have been a member for 5 years, then you get this anyway. If you haven't then you don't. I haven't been a member before but clicked on this to be disappointed. Suggest it be expired
not a deal
Nothing new is this a deal?
is this a new, different offer to all seniors or the usual concession (i.e., only available if you've had a membership for at least 5 of the last 10 years)?
