Cant believe I hadnt seen it as we get The Connexion. Just hadnt got round to reading it!

I have read nothing on changes to renewing a UK passport for those resident in France. I have looked on the internet but have found nothing. Could you point me in the right direction John.

Why not put down a weed suppressing membrane with gravel on top interspersed with the decking boards you can buy. You could also add plants in pots and tubs.

Andorra

This was the most exciting thing I could find!! People may tell you Andorra’s nothing but skiing and shopping. They might add that Andorra la Vella, its capital and only town, is a fuming traffic jam bordered by palaces of consumerism. (Fact: Andorra has over 2000 shops – more than one for every 40 ...

So sorry to hear the sad news. I too had never met him but we had "spoken" on the Forum many times and we both hailed from Devon. He will be missed. Lets hope there is a Forum in the afterlife so he can continue to give the benefit of his vast knowledge. RIP Roger.

I have a fence along which I want to train some sort of climbing plant. Preferably something that will hold its leaves in winter so it doesnt just look like bare branches. I had thought about a passion flowers but has anyone got any suggestions.
