Re: UPDATED FORUM NOW ON LINE. GIVE IT A GO.

Well done Kate, all your own work?

The only issue I have found is that messages in the PM Inbox have a black background with faint grey script. Consequently, they are almost unreadable.

That's correct the Europcar Office (shared with Interserve) is about 200m from the main terminal. They moved about 2 years ago.

Exit the terminal on foot, tun left and the office is on the far side of the first roundabout.

National Strike - Thu 21 Sep

Looks like another national strike has been called.

Ryanair has just cancelled the Perpignan - Stansted flight for that day!

Interestingly last year there were some 15 restaurants in the 66 and neighbouring areas offering the deal, this year only 6. Yet the overall number of participating restaurants across France has increased from 1,200 to 1,400.

Nothing in Argeles, Canet, Narbonne or Ceret this year.

Thank you again Allan.

It is indeed Liberon RINGR125 Détachant bois 125 ml remover that I have been looking for. Neither Leroy Merlin nor Weldom had it in stock, despite being shown as stockist on the Liberon website.

I have emailed Liberon and asked them how I can order some.
