  • Please do NOT change ANY settings on the boiler under the stairs. Do NOT press any switches as it is setup for remote access.

  • If you need the scheduled changed, send me an email and I will set a new schedule remotely.

Garden and Shed

  • The front garden is a great place to sit and watch the world go by, however, it is not secure for small children to be left unattended.

  • The back garden is very small and steep and unfortunately not suitable for relaxing or playing.  The back garden path can be slippery after rain, so please be careful.

  • Bikes and paddle boards may be stored in the back garden. The area is generally safe.

    • I store my SUP in the front garden without concern​

  • The shed can be used for dry storage of large items, however, it can may be awkward to use due to the steps.

    • It is can be good place to sit and make a phone call.

    • The shed does not have a lock (note, I am considering having a bolt and padlock installed - feedback welcome)

    • The shed is our letter box for deliveries from the Royal Mail, please be courteous and either bring the letters indoors and leave above the fridge for collection, or leave in a pile in the shed.

  • Smokers may use the shed, as long as they act sensibly and do not cause any damage.

    • Smokers should dispose of doubts, filters, roaches etc properly - ie bagged and binned. Please don't throw in the garden or in the bin.

NOTE: The shed is currently half full of "stuff" - it can still be used, but with limited room for now.
