    Amazon Basics AA are the best batteries I’ve ever purchased. We have a pretty big stock of rechargeables and some non-rechargeables for stuff like remotes, etc (the long term stuff)

    Dirt cheap too

    Currys used to do a pack of 48 logik as batteries for 9.99 xD, in fact, still do... So that's like 21p a battery ! Can't say I have the need for so many though, but maybe good for children's toys at Christmas :p

    B & M are also a good place for batteries.
    However, i find its the sort of place that you can’t just pop into for one thing.....so many bargains that you end up with an abundance of things that you didn’t know you needed.

    Apparently B & M stands for Boozers and Mingers.

    Anyway, here is the link to the batteries

    Putting good bids together for anything takes a lot of work and talented people / researchers - who need paid somehow

    Yep. When you do public tender bids there’s a threshold at which point they actually give you a small amount of money after you’re shortlisted to cover the costs of bidding on the actual tender. At least that’s my assumption, I bid on a £180k tender and it didn’t have that, but a £210k one gave £4k to each shortlisted bidder to put together a more detailed bid. Can’t imagine they just decided to do that, presumably there’s guidance somewhere.

    In what world do you live in if you think that a bid to access hundreds of thousands of pounds doesn't cost tens of thousands of pounds?

    Yes they have gone mad, at this point it's almost better to leave them to it. Except that it'll almost certainly fall apart so spectacularly that almost half of us will die again. But they know what they're doing. Better to just let them get on with it and hope for the best.

    Because what can you do?

    The old post house is getting closer to opening again, and it's new name has been unveiled. Welcome...

    The Post House Bar and Grill :p

    Similar premises as the original, having a bar, restaurant and function room , should be good.

    It is being fully gutted internally which is a bit of a shame having a refit so soon after it was initially opened as the original post house, but so be it, guess the new owners needed to make their mark and needed to be a bit more than a lick of paint.
