Hi from Gloucester (uk)

Post: # 241221Post Crickleymal »

Hi folks

I'm Malcolm based near Gloucester. We (my wife to be precise) have an allotment, chickens in the back garden and my wife keeps bees. Hopefully at some point (these things always get put off don't they) we'll be getting a woodburner and installing solar water heating. I'm an electronics engineer and a keen caver so I do dabble in alternative lighting sources and batteries.

Hi. I'm just down the road in north Wiltshire. At the moment I'm working in Cheltenham.

Dabbling in batteries - well that's not a hobby I've ever heard of before. :lol:

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Welcome!
Bees do sound brilliant: Solar water, evacuated tubes are very efficient my friend has two lots and I do recommend them.
