Since 1967 young Herbert

Then you should know the position we were in, how close we were to going bust.
And that was before we found out later it was even worse that known.

I do indeed and I stand by my original comments. I must emphasise young Herbert that I have absolutely no wish to return to those dark miserable days, but I can't abide apocalyptic nonsense of the sort being pedalled on this site.

What apocalyptic nonsense, old Andy ? Explain.

If I have to explain this then I'd rather spend my time doing something more enjoyable thanks. Over and out

I think he’s trying to say that BFC was on a possible trajectory that may have risked “going bust” in certain scenarios but it was not an imminent actuality.

So you come on here, rubbishing it that the club was on the brink , yet won’t tell us how we were not.

If your not going to back up that claim then don’t waste your time coming on here.

I bet you were one of those Noades sympathisers. Sounds like it.

Dont think I've ever come across a Noades sympathiser.

“Over and out” is technically incorrect. “Over” means “end of transmission, expect response” , while “out” means “end of transmission, not expecting response”.:whoosh:

I thought you were doing the off ? I don’t believe you found something more enjoyable to do than to talk waffle. You’ve still got nothing to say & keep posting

I don't know if anyone is able to help but I live in one of the houses backing on to Griffin Park and we've been sent a party wall agreement letter by Ecoworld offering a surveyor to act on our behalf. What's the best way to respond in this situation? Is it worth going to the trouble of appointing our own surveyor for this? The letter is from Behan chartered surveyors if that is of any help (if it was 'Benham' I'd be much more likely to trust it!)

Thanks in advance if anyone is able to help.

I might be able to put you in touch with someone who is very active on this front and also lives near the ground.

A few years ago the property next to mine was to be demolished & new homes were going to be built. I got a letter offering a surveyor to act on my behalf. I accepted and ended up with a new party wall at absolutely no cost to myself

That would be great, thanks. It's one of those tricky ones where it's probably fine just to accept their offer of a surveyor but it also feels like there could be a conflict of interest further down the line. Thanks for responding so quickly!

@Will Bee

I have some information for you:

There is a group of local residents collaborating on this. Some are going with Behan and others are appointing their own plus they are looking at appointing ones to represent multiple householders. Get in contact with griffinparkresidents@gmail.com

Here's some item's that have been discussed:

If there are still residents who'd like to be represented by the Griffin Park Residents' surveyor, please drop me a line with your name, address, email and telephone number as a single block of text, so that I can cut and paste and share with our chosen surveyor. If you have already contacted me, there is no need to resend. Once we have selected a surveyor I will create a mailing list of residents in the shared surveyor group and stop sending out emails regarding this matter to the larger group.

Some residents have emailed to say, they are selecting their own surveyor and that is fine.

Others have asked about going with the Behan Partnership who are also representing EcoWorld. Every professional I have spoken to advises strongly against doing this and several residents have written to me to concur.

For the few still thinking “why didn’t we just update GP” the complexities of sorting these issues now for Ecoworld is a helpful answer.

Those people are probably still wondering what we need with one of these new-fangled horseless carriages: "Why don't we just keep Dobbin?"

A chance to recycle the Henry Ford quote: If I'd asked customers what they wanted, they would have said "a faster horse".

A well used quote in my Business Analysis line of work.
