#88187 UKPS 2017 AGM!

An entertaining and positive day for us all. The group discussion we had about the society's future and how we can improve on what we have were very constructive.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the talks and thank you to all the speakers. The fireworks was something else, the best to date in my opinion well done Karl.

BUT whatever they have will have to be correctly imported into the UK, which isn't a task for amateurs like us.

It must be CE marked AND it must also be an accepted type of firework for the UK market.


That go's without saying, we wouldn't wont to do anything underhand would we.

Mostly good, (particularly £39 for three years) but that countersignature stuff really winds me up - who is to say that the listed classes of person are any more honest than normal decent citizens? Also you are giving them assorted proofs anyway.


Also sign & date and put their name under it? That could be anybody - sign it John Smith, teacher - how could that ever be checked as right or wrong?


All seems to have come straight from the Victorian era.


Yes gov'ner I'll tug my forelock, because I'm only an untrustworthy peasant...


I totally agree with your sentiments, but there has to be some form of cross checks even if it is open to abuse, what else can they do.


At lest you do not need a counter signing by a corrupt politician, incompetent doctor or somebody from the legal profession that shouts total crap just to make a name for themselves and persuade the gullible.

You can't beat growing your own timber for charcoal, I have planted willow Salix fragilis or crack willow. Going to coppice it every couple of years or so.

Wish I had been there Deano, I ended up just looking at other peoples stuff from the garden at a friends house and then took a long walk home in the pitch black.


It is amazing how many people you pass by doing the same thing on new year, all very friendly and jovial.

One person jumped out of there skin when I said happy new year, asking me were are you in the darkness.
