Mark Hopwood....he reads everything addressed to him

He might read his emails but he doesn't reply to any of mine!  I once had a reply from his email address but signed off by Nicole Black of Customer Relations.  She said she would get back to me asap but never has.

Of course he doesn't - it'd be a pretty much a full-time job doing so.

Reading elsewhere that Ben Rule has been given 'gardening leave'. No independent verification and I post as rumour only.

Gardening leave normally precedes a move to a competitor.

Only just spotted this. It made me laugh. You have been the victim of the rumour mill. My garden could really do with me having some gardening leave but I'm still hard at work. In fact I didn't even get any time off this Sunday!

Pleased to hear you are still "on-board" and glad you've had the opportunity to put the record straight.

Glad also that the rumour I read on another forum was unfounded. I was clear here to say rumour only.

I've put them straight at the other place.  Wink

My garden could really do with me having some gardening leave but ...

My sympathies, Ben: I've taken the past week off work as annual leave, to 'do some gardening, etc' ... but it's been pouring with rain  Roll Eyes Grin

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
