    Stewardship Payments for 2018

    Same here, had an RPA inspection last week, 4th or 5th in 8 years. Inspector left happy. Still no idea where the December 2018 money is. No matter, I’m sure they will pay the June payment on the 1st won’t they!

    Stewardship Payments for 2018

    Just had the same email after being promised full payment in March or a bridging payment in April. So, I phoned the RPA, who were unable to give me any information about my claim, or when I might get paid. Shockingly, they just gave me the phone numbers for FCN & RABI which apparently “should...

    Stewardship Payments for 2018

    Anybody been paid yet? I haven’t. Was told by NE two weeks ago that I would automatically be paid 75% of my claim in April if no payment in March.

    Pneumatic seed drill distributor head

    Anyone got some sort of distributor head for a cultivator drill I’m making? I’ve got the metered seed blown to the cultivator, just need to send it down 8 seed pipes now. Thanks.

    Markus Keaney on BBC news last night

    What a charming bloke! If this character is indicative of Jeremy’s activists then I can see why the Labour Party MPs felt they had to leave yesterday. It’s yet another nail in the coffin of my attempt to understand the politics of all my friendly ex-metropolitan remainer neighbours who...

    What did you expect when you voted Leave?

    What I expected would happen when I voted leave. 1- That we would extricate ourselves from the ever tightening clutches of the EU. Thus protecting British citizens from the consequences of living under a power-hungry federal government with scant regard for democracy and the rule of law. 2-...
