Bear in mind that RVs are generally not allowed to stop for overnight stays on public roads, so you may have to pay campsite costs. Also, they're very very heavy on fuel and cost a lot of money to fill. Is it a proper RV or a camper van as the big RV requires a HGV Licence to drive. Don't forget if ...

I think you're missing the point here, Ryan is talking about the horrible portable generator driven lights that Alton use when the park is open during the winter for Scare Fest etc. Instead of investing in lighting which only be used for a few weeks of the year AT rent out portable flood lights to l...

It's honestly not there Lon. Firstly, as mentioned by Joel it's now against the law thanks to the good old Data Protection Act. Secondly, having worked in a credit referrals team a few times over the past couple of years, there's definitely no information linked to members of the household returned...

But you dont become associated with someone else UNLESS you've applied for credit or operated a joint bank account with another person. I'm not associated with anyone in my household, and never have been. As for you theory, yes, thats correct. But lenders will be hard pushed to give you credit unle...

What I said is correct, but you have to apply for a Notice of Disassociation it's not always automatic. Your credit file is based on the address first then the individual. If Tom Jones lives at 133 The Avenue and moves to 321 The Grove, and doesn't reference The Avenue, his credit history is broken ...

i thought it was illegal to keep the debt to an address which is why you are asked to prove where you have lived for x amount of years. I see a few equifax things come and go at work and I've never seen anyones mention the house just their own debts. One thing it could be Chris is that 18 you may n...

If you've got good credit history at your current address then the electoral roll should not affect it. You need to be at your current address for at least 3 years or can provide addresses for the last 3 years. How do you know you have good credit history until you check? Credit is based on the hous...

Sad news about the pier, but I must admit, I went to Weston once and thought it was the most boring seaside town I've ever been to. Lifeless, soulless and dull. Can anyone convince me otherwise?? For the life of me, I cannot work out why piers seem to have a habit of catching fire, is there some phe...

Whilst the directors of Aspro wont be blamed legally, if this is heavily documented in the media, it will have a negative effect on their visitor numers and reputation. Then again legally it will make no difference to Aspro, so i guess you're right that it doesn't matter too much to Aspro If anythi...

Its interesting that at the time of the incident the park park was under different ownership. It was a small, family run park then, but is now owned by the major Spanish entertainment corporation Aspro, who own and operate numerous water parks and theme parks around Spain and Portugal and several h...

All the more reason for ride hosts to check restraints. I was at Alton a couple of weekends ago and the ride host on Rita didn't check any of the restraints on my side. When I got off the ride I spoke to the guy who was supposed to do it and I said why didn't you check any of the restraints on my si...
