Mobile phone provider 6 Replies

Hello. First time poster to the Pen Selwood website. Not sure if this is the right location for a query like this, but here we go.I have an O2 phone which has a good signal most of the time, but then drops out to nothing intermittently. It's not the phone, and I suspect it's another provider's mast nearby crushing the signal.Anyone have any advice on the best mobile provider for the village? We're up near the church.Andrew WarrenContinue

Occasional help with care

It's called 'old age' but I do need help getting up in the morning and getting to bed at night, I do have two ladies who come in but would like a third as a reserve. There is no medical care required or lifting and I do pay for time. If anyone is interested please contact me Gill Matthews on 840412Continue
