Friday 13 October 2017 – Defect Update

Tuesday 10 October 2017 – Fail

No.  Not everything has been fixed.  And our SS didn't turn up for the re-inspection, he did say that he would be there, and that's why Mr W took the morning off work, so that he, the SS and the Inspector could get together and cross things off.   I'm beyond disappointed.   I''m not…
