The UK paper license becomes redundant soon! Pop in for a DVLA form and replace your old one soon!

Jolly good! I've lost track of the times I've been asked:
"Do you have your paper counterpart?"
"Dagnamit!"

Some cracking music tonight (Thu) at the +Blue Bell Inn with the Band Wagon. Paul Reaney & Phil Bradley are along for the fun! #nq  
 
We have some lovely acoustic music here on the second Thursday of the month with the band Wagon!  They are back at the Blue Bell for another one of their excellent evenings of original 'folkish' acoustic music.

The band Wagon - an informal collective, the core of which is Bill Malkin (guitar and vocals), John Sylvester (keyboards), Dave Russell (bass, fiddle, banjo) and Chris Lee (bass, mandolin) but which also includes Graham Bellinger (harmonica, guitar) and other musical friends.

The biggest rail strike for decades starts this Bank Holiday Monday – but +Liftshare won’t let it ruin your plans! #LiftShare  
The first national rail strike in 20 years has been confirmed for May 25. The 25th is a bank holiday which means there will be less commuters than usual but more families coming back from a long weekend. Will the rail strike affect you? If you are travelling over the bank holiday weekend we recommend …

#WorldWhiskyDay  it's on now!  Lot's of specialist malts and we're shaving off 20p a tot too at the +Blue Bell Inn !
 
We're celebrating #Whisky  for #WorldWhiskyDay  so you had best come and join us!

20p off a tot of one of our 20 unchill-filtered whiskies to try!

World Whisky Day invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. Events are taking place all over the globe. If you can’t find an event happening near you why not host your own World Whisky day event? All you need is a bottle of whisky to share with your friends. World Whisky day celebrates all types of whisky/whiskey and encourages everyone to enjoy whisky responsibly.

World Whisky Day is all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. We are not about being snobby and you can drink it however you enjoy it. We want to be all inclusive that means any kind of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world.

We also want to encourage you to drink your whisky/whiskey the way you enjoy it most. So if you want to add ice or water or a mixer that’s fine by us – as long as you enjoy it.
There’s a difference between enjoying a whisky and really appreciating a whisky. If you want to analyse a whisky then we suggest you drink it neat with a splash of water.

Slainte,
Blair Bowman
Founder

Story

Engineers get stuff done!
Introduction
Steve Marquis,

I'm a people person and since people are at the heart of most problems, I'm also something of a problem solver!

I'm still a design/consulting engineer at heart, spent 30 years in IT/comms after a mech eng start, worked in virtually every industry, now retired to run a pub in the UKs NE Wales mountains. That pub is now the first pub in Wales to sport a Post Office Local over a bar!

Having bought product to market I'm using my marketing skills and IT abilities to promote the business via our website and social media. I'm a Google+ early adopter and keen to develop it's use for small business and share that experience with the wider community.

I've been reflecting on the above and it occurs to me that these days I am more of a conduit rather than a creative for original thinking, however, I do sometimes have my moments!
Bragging rights
I've been a hands-on Mechanical, Design, IT & Comms Consulting Engineer that when I've had the opportunity, project/programme manages, markets, sells and writes about it all too! I'm also a wannabe Permaculturist!

Just the job for a quick pit-stop for hot-choc and a crepe with the advantage of a wonderful array of ice cream and an abundance of great sweet treats.
