  1. This seems to have replaced the original topic rather than just being a poll, so I will respond here. There are different viewpoints but one thing I've noticed is that most people who have commented have either been against binning, don't bin but can see why that's not particularly bad compared with other options/ waste disposal practices, or against the sudden change in tack from crt. Not much from people who regularly bag and bin. That's not arguing one way or another, just that we seem to be missing voices from relevant people. Maybe they aren't on this forum or possibly feel uncomfortable
  2. How much dog poo is either left where it is or bagged and put in trees, compared with human poo bagged and binned, apparently legally. Is it the fact that it is human poo that is bothering people so much?
  3. Looks like they have removed it. But it is still in your quote.
  4. From South Glis council website on disposing of dog waste. "Dog waste bins In recent years national guidance on the disposal of dog waste has changed and it is no longer necessary to separate dog waste from other types of household waste. For this reason, dedicated dog waste bins are no longer required and waste can be disposed of in any available litter bin or your black household bin. Some parish areas in South Gloucestershire have opted to continue providing dog waste bins, but others have removed some or all dog bins and ask responsible dog owners to use dual use bins,
  5. Good job it not got a mast then!
  6. Although we are being asked to stay at home a lot of people are out and about doing lots of things. If you are fairly local to the boat I doubt the police would stop you. I'm out and about with work a fair bit and never been questioned. Not saying you should ,or won't get into trouble but if you did I go to check the boat and it's not miles away I think it would be very unlikely that anyone batted an eyelid.
  7. Thanks. That's a lot clearer.
  8. Or maybe 29th March when the official stay at home order is due to end.
  9. Can you find what you are looking for on the ons data here. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/datasets/coronaviruscovid19infectionsurveydata
  10. We had a situation when camping on a small unattended farm site in Wales. Family decided to use the only toilet onsite to empty their van toilet , with splashing, and use the only drinking water tap to wash things out. We had to sanitise everything before letting the kids go anywhere near it . Good job we were aware of what happened or us or anyone else on the site wouldn't have had a clue and just used the facilities as usual. Makes you wonder if bagging and binning is that bad in comparison.
  11. It doesn't help you but might help someone else. I paid cash but did ask for a signed bill of sale. Templates are available online. It might not help in really complicated cases but it's better than nothing and does show you bought the boat from a particular individual who was claiming to own the boat and that was the full purchase price.
  12. Not wishing to "stir things up" and apologies if this has been mentioned in the previous 21 pages. I'm sure most people commenting here with cassette toilets have access to and use proper Elsan points. I've no idea about %s so won't try and guess except to say that people who can't or won't access Elsan facilities may well use inappropriate facilities to empty their cassettes, including facilities used by members of the public. Happy Nomad said there is always somewhere to empty the Thetford, wherever they stay in the caravan. Not saying Happy Nomad does this but some campervan users acknowled
  13. I've got one of these torches which is really useful https://www.primetools.co.uk/product/sealey-led180-rechargeable-slim-folding-inspection-lamp-121-smd-lithium-ion/ I don't think it has been mentioned yet but something to clear stuff from your propeller when you need to go down the weed hatch. Have a search on this forum for weedhatch tool suggestions.
  14. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
