Andy- the code is simple, Andy will tell you. Alternately, if both gates are closed, use the builders entrance

Wonderful news. Thanks Andy (and Ron & Ken). If they have any video of our white walls (outside), then that would make Sheila's day

Can't wait to get back out there and see all the changes.

motor bikes should not be allowed in SWB unless Lambrettas are as well. Every sunday we could get drunk at the bar and have a fight. Not sure where go karts fit in I guess arthur needs 4 wheels to act as stabilisers must confess Im on 4 wheels now with my agricultural ATV s handy for weedspraying nd no arthur I cannot drive a tractor

Hi All,

Just back from a few days away and its great that we do have our wet room as requested. Still being tantalised with the white walls promise but I guess all will be revealed soon. A picture of wardrobes or kitchen fitments would be good Andy

Just checking the weather and it looks like its warming up nicely over there so the pools will start to be used etc.

We still have 89 sleeps so I think shopping for 'stuff' for C41 might make the time go quicker!!

Have a great day

Sheila&Phil x

Rocky, I always had a suspicion there was something dodgy about you- now you've come out of the closet as a mod [excuse pause whilst I expectorate on the floor].



Andy, don't need photos, but Sir Geoff asked how the claret and blue colour scheme on 133 was going. Give our regards to the SWB/RMS crew. Please also ask after Mad Max [the dog].



Have a good trip.

Rocky, you may not be able to drive a tractor, but I bet you can worry sheep!!!



It's true a go kart doesn't need stabilisers, but neither do I until after the second bottle of wine.



Ah well, must go, off to see England v Slovakia. If you look at league 1 you will see the mighty Shrimpers [Southend United] are aiming to get in the play offs. May be playing the Tractorboys next season..........

Hi Guys

Haven't been on for ages but have sort of caught up.

Is anyone going out in the near future. We would love it if someone could take some photos of 120/1 (GLB) as they are supposed to be fitting a ballustrade around our patio, as it is too high and they are supposed to be relaying half a dozen floor tiles as there was a flaw in the tiles, goodness knows why they put them down in the first place!



Anyway any photos would be great.

Cheers

Andy- just for you, "Desperate Dan" [yer man Rooney] was in a class of his own, although most of the team [with the exception of the serial philanderer Ashley Cole] played well.



Sir Geoff said that if Sir Alex was going to help [obviously in a very minor role] with the opening of 133, for hygiene purposes can you provide a bin for AF's discarded chewing gum..................

Just booked a flight for a week at the end of October.

It's a reasonable price but in the time I looked it up, texted my wife for agreement, got her reply, the price had gone up 60.

How's that for inflation?

Checked again later out of curiosity and it had come down 40 from the price I paid and then went back up again, talk about yo-yo prices!

Thanks Andy, I've just twigged that Cylad is aka Macha aka Private Pike. I assume that Captain Mainwaring would call him a "stupid boy".



I think all those who have looked for more than a few minutes will be aware that there are "issues" between the GCs and TCs, and indeed the property ownership matters, but one can only assume that [as opposed to Juliet aka Suzanne who I think is married to a GC] Cylad/Macha/Pike who is British is either being paid for his efforts, or has little else to do with his time. It's interesting that despite him detesting the current regime/property issues, he voluntarily lives in NC.



Andy, from your last post you seem to be as much of a Luddite as me. We need a crash course in IT from Tekknochicken. Rocky/Zhivago will of course be excluded for wanting to ride scooters.

Hi Sheila -



We were naughty and took over our own dinner and side plates - I think we even took some glasses!! Arthur's mum gave us her old cutlery canteen (from the 50's or 60's - I think) - other kitchen bits we took over also. We went over to IKEA (Pat and Andy drew up a very detailed map 'DO NOT DEVIATE' and is available from the SWB/RMS office) there we bought mirrors, glasses and glass candle holders etc.



We are having our bedroom curtains made up over here and will take them over on our next visit.



Jackie x

Yet another thing to add to my list If you have a list already then that will help the grey matter organise itself then that would be great.

I hope we can 'eat posh' when we are all out there together in June/July Or maybe a a party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi



Andy, Sue and Alex - hope you had a great time!!!!!!!



Arthur and I had a meal at Al Shaeen (hope that's the correct spelling) - I ordered a king prawn massala - well what I got was - three normal size prawns cut in two - so I got six small pieces of prawn in not a very good sauce - we will avoid this one in future!!



Sorry can't be much help - that's the only Indian we've been to - but I have to say we are very spoilt in this part of Essex - we have some wonderful Indian restaurants.

I think that will be done last when all site work is complete. C40 are arriving today and Andy and Sue are there shortly so maybe more news then.



Jakki did you send me "The List"

Sheila - what have you got so far for your villa??



I had been buying things for a quite a while really - I mean even down to kitchen scissors and chopping boards - Arthur was amazed when he saw what I had got. John Lewis at Waitrose (which is a few miles from where we live) is ideal for getting great ideas - kettle/toaster/mugs/plates/sharp veggie knives/coffee/tea/sugar caninsters/bath mats/loo roll holder/bathroom shelves/soap holder/bed linen/pillows/duvets/bathroom mirrors/towels/tea towels/ - we even took a frying pan for our cooked breakfasts - we still have a list of what to take next - we must get a laptop and get you and Phil to each us about Skype!! To be fair we did actually buy some things in NC - such as a rubbish bin for the kitchen/a clothes dryer/bucket, broom and mop (which were pretty cheap in Lemar). We got some cheap saucepans in IKEA and we plan to get some free standing wooden shelves for the wetrooms on our next visit.

I took out my own fabric for the kitchen - and Hayhay made up the blind for me. I am also replacing the metal tie backs he put up - I have an eye for detail and the ones he used just didn't match anything!! Again, I have seen some that will in John Lewis.



Arthur and I intend to use the gym when we are next out - so a sports bag each is also on the list. Some walllights that we got in IKEA in the South are much cheaper other here - so a trip to Thurrock was in order last week.



We have asked SWB to remove some ceiling lights for us - far too many!!!

The roof terrace sink - is anyone having doors made for the space underneath - we had thought to have a wine cooler fitted but apparently it would be too hot - I think it would look smarter with doors put on though.

I know it's incredible isn't it that nothing got broken!!! Of course, you can store stuff at our place - no probs.



Arthur downloaded this from Pegasus website just the other day :-



"2- Hand baggage : This is baggage taken on the plane by the passenger. Each passenger is permitted one item of unregistered baggage measuring 20cm x 40cm x 55cm and weighing a maximum of 8kg"



Wish we had known this before - will be taking a copy to the airport with us!!!

Just thought of something else that Arthur has stocked up on - energy saving light bulbs - he was in Lidyl last week and they had an offer on - it was something silly like five bulbs for 50p or something!!!

Hadn't thought about doors but we also want a cooler upstairs somewhere. We have thought about getting a water cooler with small fridge in the base and having it in our bedroom. My main thought for the roof is some kind of shade as it will be roasting up there.



We have heard though that as there is water and soakaways on the roof you could set up a overhead shower quite easily to cool off.

The shower idea sounds good - I did have in mind to buy a modern four poster bed and hang with white muslin and very large cushions - just to relax with a large gin & tonic listening to Jason Marz.

Yes its going in the back right garden corner. We still have to find a place that does them. Apparently there is a place that supplies and fits them over Lapta way so we need to sort that when we are out in June.

Sheila, I think the place you mean is Mustafa Genc- he's doing our glass screens in the wetrooms. He has a display of bathroom fittings at SWB. The lightbulb offer in Lidl [sposored by British Gas] was 50p per lightbulb, 40p [in total] for 5!!! Lightbulbs, particularly low energy bulbs are an arm and leg in NC. You will probably find that when your villa is complete there will be a mixture of bayonet and edison [screw] fittings. If you can't find them elsewhere, Ikea do edison fitting bulbs.



Despite putting furniture together and putting up light fittings and toilet roll holders etc during our last visit, I have a full work programme for our visit in June..............................c'est la vie.

KDV [i.e. VAT] is paid with last instalment to SWB. Solicitors sort out Land registry fee[register contract], although technically you can do it yourself. Hav you paid stamp duty??



Sorry Phil, but I can't be responsible for whatever your list will be, bet it's not as long as mine.



I won't tell you again Rocky, you've got to keep off the vodka.........it's giving you a split personality

Well - they should be named and shamed as far as I am concerned.



Those people who do not pay are, of course, in breach of contract and when I raised this issue with SWB I was informed that any breach of contract, SWB would be seeking relief through the courts. I was also advised that the authoriries take a dim view of any breach of contract and those persons involved will not be entitled to their title deeds.

Hi Sheila,

We're going out three times before the end of the year and even with that number of trips we think it's going to be a struggle to bring everything we want from England but we'll pack what we can.

Being a male I don't want to spend all my time shopping.

With more and more people being over there at the same time Andy F. will need a very large toolkit!

By the way when I was a teenager I wanted a Lambretta 125 but never got one going straight to cars so in the bar me and rocky will be sitting with the elderly mods and at the other end will be the elderly rockers.

Andy, whilst out in SWB would you check if 123 GR has still got builders chippings piled up against the side of my apartment please.

Well Loby I did not guess you were a Lambretta man, my first was a 150cc series three I think it was 20 deposit and 8 a month. Then the dream an SX 200 withhout a crash helmets and a few minor slip ups on icy roads. Should we make SWB a noise free zone with no cars, no motorcycles and no scooters? In many Italian holiday villages it is so peaceful you park on the perimeter in a designated parking area and use battery powered golf carts no danger to children (unless they drive them) and it sems idylic. Hey guys n gals can we help MRs z find z and have you gone Andy?

Just be careful Arthur we hope that Loby and I will not rise to any bait but we can be pretty mean. I expect you have a leather jacket with studs on and the kinks on the back. This is why we must be a quiet environment with no tribal uniforms I promise I will leave my Parka on my lawn tractor. Golf carts now seem a must even Mrs Mint must agree surely she wont want any trouble finding the motorbike in the ravine in the morning.

Sheila, you can get that sort of gear from the local TRNC Anne Summers shop !



Zhivago probably dresses in top mod gear but it's the first time round in Russia.

(apologies if there are any real russians out there)



Never did get my Lambretta instead had a second hand 90 Ford Anglia (sloping back window) and that certainly liberated me from the bus.



What was other peoples first car and any stories to go with it ?

My first car was an old Skoda, given to me by my Dad when he was due to get rid of it. My Mum didn't like me riding motorbikes, so she prevailed upon my Dad to give it to me. Not only did my Dad give me the car, he paid the insurance as well. As my Dad was a bit careful [to say the least], for him to PAY the insurance left me speechless................

Arthur if you refer to my lambretta again as a hairdryer I will call on you and pull up your daffodils so be careful. So Southend Hells Angels were really cool pulling up at their raves in a skoda with their leathers on. I bet that helped you pull the birds. I bet Jakki wasnt around then I guess she has more taste. When I heard I was going to be given an old A30 by an aunt I went out and traded my SX200 for a mini. OK not great but ...

Rocky- I don't do gardening. Actually we don't have any daffodils [just a few roses with bark chippings to keep the weeds away], but if you pull up our flowers, you'll be a brave man because you'll have the Boss to contend with. She might even set our killer West Highland Terrier, Robbie on you.



As for the Skoda being a crumpet puller.............well [surprisingly] no actually.

I think we all have fond memories of our first car, I sold that one after about a year to a chap at work for 50. He told me later after about two weeks his foot went through the floor, it was rotten, but what do you expect for 50 !

I can't really remember but I don't think MOT's had come out yet in those days, it was about 1970.

I do remember though that my insurance was about 21, third party, fire and theft.

Instead of a bath we have the option of just having a shower put in which is in a corner of the bathroom which is fully tiled with very slightly sloping floor with a drain hole hence a wet room! Does that make sense. I am buying a villa so a bathroom downstairs with a traditional bath with shower over for mainly friends with litlle kids but in our ensuite upstairs we have a wet room.

Although anyone buying a villa with wet room upstairs is going to have fun as the window is right where the shower is placed!!!!!

Sheila - have you thought about installing a glass screen for your wet room - we are having them installed - they cost (including labour) 400. each.

We were all for wet rooms initially, untill our builder said "you'll soon get sick of wet toilet paper, wet towels, and wet dressing gowns..."

- Hurried re-think! - shower screens ordered...

Hi Jakki.

We are going to see how it is without one but maybe to contain the water splash we will have to rethink. We are having a shower screen put over the bath downstairs.

Which lights are you having taken out?

Also Jakki Have you got a plan of what to put at the window in the ensuite ? At night or with the lights on its going to be see through so outline spotting could be a sport on SWB!!!!

The light in the kitchen [Madam likes cooking by half light], and the one over the window in our master bedroom- which I think you've had moved.



We gave the idea of no glass screen a try but it isn't practical, whatever you do, most of the floor will get wet without it. After a shower, I was perpetually sweeping water towards the drain with my foot, some water having almost got as far as the toilet. I also think it would start to rot the door. As for your other comments, I'll start having nightmares that I'll be seeing Phil's silhouette through the frosted window!!!!

From 13th April in Lidl (the super market) in their weekly special offers they are selling mosquito nets for putting over beds.

The price is only 3.99 and for that you get the frame and the net.

No idea of the quality but that looks a bargain.

From the picture it looks ideal for keeping out the sandflies and the mossies..

Hi all only 2 days left in Florida why aint anyone posting Andy its no excuse being in NC there are intrenet cafes just be aware of the i (i) problem on the keyboard. Also the bird life here is fantastic sod the alligators once youve seen one they all look the same, can recommend an airboat ride for the bird life alone. Property prices are fallinh here you can get 4 bed 3 baths for not much over 100K but the better areas cost about 160K and the top golf complexes around 200K. A nyway is there any news on Z please Mrs Z keep us up to date hopefully you can find our friend.

The new photos are looking good but I think SWB are teasing us as we havnt had a photo since 19th Jan but we know (but have not seen yet) that there is so much more done than then Getting quite excited as there are about 5 people visiting SWB that may send us photos in the next week Yippee

Happy Eater all SWbayers it will be good to hear from everyone on their return.

Arthur I see ManU did get a win so perhaps Andy will now pay a couple of lira and go to an Internet Cafe to broadcast the news. My prediction looks good for the champions league the final will be Barca V Arsenal as these two beat FC Porto (sorry Andy) and Chelsea. Mint re photos I have not seen any from Andys mate who was taking some about 3 weeks ago yet. We get back from F on Tuesday and you are correct Arthur being an astute accountant there are several AMericans here starange that. (but not in our villa) We pack 2 nite and travel tomorrow then I need to get a short trip to SWB in May/June to put the furniture etc in before we arrive for July holiday. If it isnt finsih we will be looking for a rental there are hundreds on the internet but the market is not developed and wont be for a long time anything like Florida.

when I say anything like Florida it does not have the experience of managing holiday properties and there are not the attractions for the masses. NC has space and unique wild areas littered by virgin areas, flowers and birds and in many cases litter as well. THe villa management in USA is expensive (varies on service and property) on top of community fees (about 100 per month) but there are no worries as the villa management companies invoice monthly with a statement and pay the bills for you therefore no risks of electric or water cut off (Note that Connie) obviouly you leave something like a $1000 dollars with them initially and they pay the bills from that. If you need any jobs doing the management company arrange them or do them themselves. EG I have asked for a good quality pool cover on a roller total cost $400 approx and a new pool pump has also just cost $400. Hopefully the rentals will come in to top up the bank account. Mrs Z have you found Z yet? (cont)

Yes Mrs Z I am getting worried, if you are paying a private investigator you may need a fund set up so ask Arthur he must be a loaded accountant coz he buys the curtains and then Jakki goes out and buys them again. He is also clever because he knows there are americans in the USA and he is not even here..

mint if I rent out through my agent in florida it costs more because they need their cut , they have our villa on their website I will email you seperately on this. MY own bookings can of course take advantage of their services such as safe hire welcome pack and pre/post cleaning.lWe need them to update the info coz we have phone(with free USA calls), dvd player, and internet (Wi fi) which they have not included in the details. Also we have updated some soft furnishings There are cheaper flights thro MOnarch from Gatwick to Sanford which is only a few miles north of the orlando international airport and its all highways out here.

Rocky, why not try and let your Florida villa to Z and Mrs Z so they can have a reconciliation?- or don't you fancy clearing up the broken glass in the fireplace?



As for the curtains, Jackie didn't like the ones done by Hayhay in the bedroom, so it was simpler to buy some material in the UK and get our curtain maker to do them. At least you then get what you ask for, rather than [with the NC curtain makers], what they want to give you.



As for being loaded, just like the nurse asking the old jewish bloke in the hospital bed if he was comfortable, he replied "well, I make a living"

I've said this before I think rocky is very rich and has long blond hair and a beard.

His real name is Sir Richard Branson, he doesn't like celebrities and when we are out there we won't have to buy any drinks because he will buy every round.

I won't anyway because us elderly mods will stick together.

I also believe we have a russian rocky on SWB.

Sheila/Phil, have you the franchise for the restaurant because according to message 137 you have a Happy Eater ?

By the way the Pia Bella is a nice hotel but has more lights than Las Vegas.

thanks Sheila, ha ha i thought as much..... im so angry this morning, after contacting swb aboiut 4 times re the completion dates and to ask if there would be any discount given, seen as the apt has gone past the 4 months completion date and i got this reply from yoav: ...................

As for compensation As we have been more than fair & tolerant with you during the process of purchase, with many various delayed payments, I find your request somewhat puzzling, to say the least.

In any case:



Any delays in construction have been in the sole intention of keeping the construction quality of the units & site.



SWB has not (and will not) grant possession to any client failing to pay 100% of agreement sum, VAT & communal charges.

i am so annoyed, we amended payment amounts and dates due to their late completion!!! argh! has anyone else been offered compensation for late development?

Thanks Rocky no hurry just interested.



Jakki we were so excited to see photos but there is still a way to go but it is looking good. Still missing the extra cupboard in the kitchen by the back door, the wardrobes and the wooden pergola's plus then painting and finishing plus white goods, air con etc etc etc.

Seeing the plot flattened with no rubbish is cool and finally seeing it white outside and with the wet room restored upstairs after hearing about it for so long.



71 sleeps so who knows we may not need a hotel after the first few days while we get snagging signed of etc it would be really great if we could at least sleep there a couple of nights before we leave in July.

re message 149 I think there have been many comments on this forum about compensation or the lack of these payments perhaps not our swb threads. I think you will find they do not happen. I am sure we are ok with swb but where developers fail to finish a property or a develoment they may be under financial pressure and any compensation claims would only aggrevate that situation and make it worse. I think its a no win situation Sam and would agree with Yoav that quality and completion is more important than meeting a fixed date. If you are reading this Yoav please make sure mine is completed early May..

I have to agree with Rocky's view on things - going out to NC in February, on the aircraft I sat next to a guy who told me that four years ago he paid 65k to a builder as a deposit - the builder became embroiled in a land dispute with the land owner - the matter went to court last year - this guy is going to appeal the court's decision - it could take another five years!! However, he remains very upbeat about things and still loves NC - let us be grateful ... 'quality and completion is more important than meeting a fixed date' - wise words indeed!!

Trying to work out how to get the telescope out there safely is a puzzle at the moment along with how long will we need a hotel for but will leave that until really near the time then see what stage things are at.

To keep myself dry I use the showercap I bought in Holland [think I've used that joke before]. Obviously Rocky you would need to make a conscious decision to want to look in our bathroom window, and although gay porn is not my thing, if JUST looking at me through the frosted window "floats your boat", who am I to deny you that pleasure??? Phil [aka Tekknochicken] normally uses his telescope to look at Uranus [used that one before also]. Perhaps Rocky, instead of invading the personal privacy of your neighbours in Somerset [whether or not they've got their smocks on], you could use your skills with a telescope to try and find Zhivago [now that really would be looking for Uranus] or Mrs Z.



Anyway, it's good to have you back Rocky and to know that you weren't a victim of the US military's "friendly fire".

Got link many thanks- got sofas from place called olguns, not sure the exact location but very pleased with them, always wanted chunky sofas so ordered 2 3 seaters which i think maybe to big for the room but feel free to have a look and a lounge when your over next, in the shop they seemed very good quality and paid about 450 each which i suppose is fairly similar to uk prices. Did shop around quite a bit.



Im going over for summer holidays 0n the 13th august for 2 weeks so will see you then, are you bringing the family and staying in the villa?

It shouldn't be hard finding a cheap place to stay - go to laterooms.com and pick up a bargain - but Rocky don't you think your place will be ready by June???? Shame you can't take your trip a little later - we are out there from the 15th. I think Sheila and Phil use the golf club for internet/wifi.

hi all im feeling better after good nights kip. first of all the site is fantastic and im shure when complete it will be great, but a few things are a bit worrying.i met edith on second day and mike a few days ago. mike told me its very unlikely we will have a resteraunte as every person who they have shown site to will not touch it with a barge pole as a buissines venture, certainly if no one from outside is allowed to use it , also looking like no supermarket either as one is opening in eight weeks on new road just up from SWB. as far as a bar for drinks he said RMS are looking at running it. not what i wanted to hear but in reality what i expected due to sites isolated position...

Hi andy I am not surprised that the restuarant does not look viable as a commercial proposiiton even more so if only residents are able to use it. The shop also needs a larger footfall from a far larger development after all there is already a shop withiin a mile or so and another supermarket will suffice nearby. You must look also at the positives we dont want to encourage outsiders to the development. Well the bar may be a problem unless we open it as a residents alcohol library with secure key entry. If these places remain empty what will become of them obviously someone is planning on a financial return for the investment. I think Loby is intending to open a fish and chip shop called Lobys Plaice and he is relying on you to stock it for him from your catches even though your friends indicate you dont catch anything. So what can we guys do with the empty units any suggestions. I thought an NIC might work (natural insemination clinic)

hi rocky, well im dissapionted about it, i was sold on swb on location and fantastic facilities now we dont have a restuarant or a supermaket in walking distance and he was very vague on the bar. if your intending renting out it shure aint a good slling piont! what you think? i asked how sales were going and he said " a trickle" no interest at all from uk due to echonomic problems but russia and scandanavia are the markets the parent company are pushing (six units now sold to russians). mike said there will be a path down to beach but wouldnt say what will be down there. .

Rocky, can't take the leather jacket because the studs set off the metal detectors at the airport. Restaurant/bar will only be viable if outsiders can use it, but it would be nice to have a small sports bar with footie on the TV. I wouldn't have a problem with RMS running it, if it's viable. If they can make a go of it, and the prices are okay, good luck to them. I don't see the supermarket thing as a problem because there are two mini markets nearby, and if you need a big shop, the main supermarkets towards Girne are only 20 minutes away.

Andy can't supply Loby, he's going to open his own chip shop, called "The Codfather". Don't ask him for a job, because if it all goes wrong he'll throw cups of tea around, a la Ferguson!!!

There is a way down to the "beach" which will be a bit more accessible once the construction work is done. As Jackie said before, there is a load of rubbish on the beach, and probably the simplest solution would be for a group of us to go down, collect....TBC

...the rubbish and have a bonfire[actually quite a big one]. I think Andy needs to be disabused of the idea that it is what we would call a beach. It might be nice for people to go down there for a few beers and a barbeque, but sandy it ain't. Thinking about it, do you have a parka you could contribute to the bonfire?

Hi all,

I personnaly would be gutted if we cant have a shop or more importantly a restaurant. My Idea of a holiday home is to be able to have convenient lunches and dinners without the aggrevation of organising a meal out, especially has restaurants in our neck of the woods is very limited. put it this way if they took the bar, restaurant ,shop out of the equsion and i was looking to buy now I would have second thoughts on buying at SWB as its not a true holiday complex which i was looking for.



I hope it gets sorted.

hi arthur, we stayed at kens place on turtle bay again, they now have two bar/restaurants and both have and need outside trade. kings bar gets packed on saturdays for the footie and shows two different games , people who live close by but are not ressidents use it. how anyone could insist on ressidents only baffles me? be honest if you were looking at investing in the bar/restuarant would you go ahead if open only to ressidents? people who voted for that on the questionaire have shot themselves in the arse. .

Hi all,



Long time no speak to!!



Disappointed to hear that there may be no shop. bar and restaurant onsite as I too have the same view as stevie and that is if Id known this first would have re-thought about where I bought??



Also to have those facilities onsite you would without a doubt need to make it open to the public to make it viable for the company running these facilities to take it on and maximise their takings. Without doing this they just wouldnt make money full stop so I am also with this one with andy and feel sorry for those who didnt think this through properly as ...cut off your nose dispite your face springs to mind?

Davina welcome back..if the units cannot be used as bar restuarant and shop what else could they be used for they would not look attractive as unused units with posters pasted on them?....a prayer room perhaps!!secure storage for owners with lockers, a laundrette, or could they be converted to apartments? Come back Z your pole dancing bar sounds attractive

re a path to the beech I am sure we will get one but it needs to blend with the natural habitat rather than a floodlit tarmac route. I have scrambled down to the beach and it was fantastic to see the lizards and the occasional birdlife nibbling on the rough growth Also it is difficult to get into the sea with the stones so whoever suggested a jetty that was a tremendous idea that would be far easier for people to get in the water. Not sure on the difficulty re construction perhaps a floating jetty would be cheaper after all the sea aint tidal to any extent is it? We dont want Andy blocking the jetty though with all his fishing mates.

It will be a real shame if the buildings are not used as restaurant shops and bar as thats what we have all bought into. Surely there must be a way that a pool/snack bar can be setup doing snacks, light lunches, hot and cold drinks and bar food at night at the very least.

An anchored floating pontoon in the sea would be great, the beach was never going to be a sunbathing one.

Jakki are you better at flipping burgers or pouring pints looks like a business venture for us is up for grabs Although I prefer a nice crisp white with a salad.

Mint its not the end of the world I have been an owner on a complex before where there was no shop and no bar we used to arrange our own fun and barbeques in our gardens and also the drinks were cheaper from the supermarket. It is difficult for all to make any venture pay in this recession and a small restuarant would not offer the choice and variety of the specialist restuarants. Perhaps when the nearby developments are completed the shop/restuarant may be more viable but we will need outsiders and this can cause problems with the facilities being used by all comers it is difficult to stop them. WIth over 100 dwellings how can you tell who are owners, tenants, friends, relatives and those that should not be there. I dont think we will starve think Arthur found a few restuarants and did not go hungry and I am sure when you have your jacuzzi and Arthurs pool is working if Shiela and Jakki can make a few sandwiches we will survive. If Andy catches anything I am sure we can cook it.

Dobbo I thought that that just meant you were approved as an individual to be allowed to purchase in NC and not much else. This probably means you dont have a criminal record so how the criminals get in I dont know unless they purchase under a psuedonym(check that fact pleeze Arthur(greaseball) and the spelling)

e and u round the wrong way Rocky, but hey, it's Saturday morning!! [please remember I wasn't the first one to take the p#ss out of spellings!!]



Sheila & Phil don't need the jacuzzi- I can personally turn our pool into one.



Disappointing about the bar/restaurant. If my memory and counting was correct, there are about 140 units in total, and you'd expect that someone who wanted to do something [even perhaps starting in a limited form], that would give enough custom as a starter, but it will definitely need outside punters.



Perhaps I'll open the "Three Steps to Heaven" , Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, Big Bopper, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Larry Williams, Bo Diddley, Elvis memorial bar/ restaurant

Hi Andy

Glad you had a good trip. The photo's of 120 I am more than happy if you email them to me, I can then upload them to snapfish.



(hindsalison@yahoo.co.uk )



Re: restaurant and bar I think realistically until people are using the site regularly it's unlikely that anyone would take it on, but next year when everything else is more established I am sure someone will be interested. I don't see the harm in RMS managing it on for a contracted time afterall they would have to stay competitively priced otherwise people wouldn't use it.



On another note does anyone know how many posts you have to send before you get to see full member details, I'm obviously still a 'newby'.

Hi all,



Applied for my PTP around 2 years ago and received my PTP authorised through about 2 months ago?



But PTPs and getting title deeds are two seperate issues.



But your right at least some are receiving PTPTs through OK so that must mean some comfort and relief to owners and surely some other PTPs should start to come through shortly??



For those with large families and small children having an onsite shop, bar and restaurant will be a conveniant must for most??



Equally I wouldnt feel on holiday if I had to cook 3 square meal a day for the tribe ...all that shopping, cooking, cleaning and washing up... May aswell have stayed at home??



Im sure something will get sorted eventually?



Maybe someone could at least do BBQs etc round the pool at lunchtimes?

The kids will be fine with a few burgers and hotdogs to tied them over??



take care d x

I think that whilst we won't have everything this year its possible over the next few years when the SWB grows in community that the buildings will get used for something near what was hoped for. Plans change which is not always a bad thing. We have to make the most of what we have and this year we can picnic down by the pools and in the evening use the communal space to hold impromtu bring your own BBQ's and parties etc.

At the moment it's all speculation about the restaurant/bar/supermarket not going ahead.

There also seems to be too much acceptance that it may not happen, too much of this and SWB/RMS may conclude that they can get away with not supplying these facilities, definately not what we want !

I purchased out here because these facilities were onsite, we need the infrastructure to increase not stagnate or decrease.

We all want to pop into the bar, use the restaurant so we don't have to drive out, use a small supermarket for the essentials (not a lemar sized one).

They still need to sell some units and with these facilities it makes it easier.

Eventually we will all sell our properties and we do want these selling points.

I've been to Steve's bar developement and next door is the gym and it's being used as a storeroom, not what we want to happen on ours.

I am not sure a bar and a restuarant are strong selling points I certainly did not buy for that reason they can bring (as i have said b4) more problems than u guys n gals anticipate. In addition if they are small concerns the stocks/menus will be limited. However I feel sure in due course someone will try to make a go of them and due to the low footfall they will not be viable. Loby you are very active with 4 postings today will your plaice be open every day for fish n chips? With davina doing bbqs and sheila doing sandwidges (thats another one 4 u Arthur) by the jacuzzi which Mint does not need anymore wots the problem. We will get by

We also intend to do a fair few lengths of the big pool daily.

Whilst dissapointing news re resatuarant/bar etc we havnt had an official RMS/SWB comment yet so happy to wait and see what happens.

I am more p****d of at the moment that we will miss the party.

If a party is going to go ahead - it's the first we've heard about it - we will, of course, be in NC on the 21st June - perhaps SWB would like to confirm.



Sheila - would like to do yoga with you - still have your DVD (but have not watched it yet!!)



Rocky - The Malpas might be the nearest, the hotel is situated in catakoy - we stayed there last year.

Rocky, you should know by now I don't rise to the bait unless it's worthwhile. I'm afraid that after this evenings cup game Andy from Wigan is likely to be "sick as a parrot", even though the game was too close to call.



Sorry you can't be at SWB for the party. Of course, I don't want to be pedantic [particularly with my old mate Andy], but 21st June is the longest day [not 6th June as per Erwin Rommel], and I think mid Summer's day is 24th June.



Anyway Rocky, I don't want to p#ss you off, particularly when you've just had a narrow win against your local rivals........

Arfa I regret I have not got my genuine USA air force parka to burn (an old message I missed that bit) it was the envy of many of my colleagues in the sixties but I swapped it for a fishing rod. The rod was swapped for my first wife by the way. I guess this week I need to order the curtains and furniture so it can be delivered when I am there. No offers from SWB owners so have got a room at 40 an hour in Titanic does anyone know it? Has Andy gone missing like Zhivago?

Loby Titanic includes 24 hours very personal care that does sound expensive though when you put it in daily or weekly terms. 40 for an hour dont sound too bad.

Andy, midsummers day and the solstice are two different things.



I wouldn't ask Berbatov to open Ferguson Heights [more properly called Sir Geoffrey Hurst Mansions], he probably can't be bothered. I don't think I have ever seen such a talented footballer who seems to have a total lack of drive and ambition. I think you should demand a refund from Spurs. What a contrast between him and Tevez, who when he pulls on a shirt always gives everything.



If you do get Ferguson to open 133, for Christ's sake make sure the landscaping is completed, otherwise he'll be moaning again!!!

Thank you Andy photos are great. Good to put a name to a face especially Sue and was that your daughter with you. The site is looking better and the plants seem to be thriving and the pools look so inviting.

Rocky, RMS will [I think] take delivery, but will charge. My modus operandi last November was to come over and stay the first night in an hotel, but have delivery of furniture organised for the next day. If you contact the people supplying furniture, they are normally very reliable on deliveries [or at least that was our experience].

Hi Arthur, my plan if it will work is to get RMS to snag in early may, pay completion monies if OK, hold a retention if necessary. I arrive on 7/6 meeting with Connie for Kibtek thing on 8th and furniture and curtains delivery on 9th, it sounds sooooo simple doesnt it?

How come we are all so quiet? Jakki I agree we could be buying anywhere other than SWB and what a sorry state of affairs some of the sites are. So looking forward to spending time on SWB and watching it all grow as more and more visit. Teething problems such as the restauarant and bar will be resolved somehow I am sure, maybe not this year but as soon as a solution can be found even if it is a complete change from what we expected. We bought on SWB as it was out of the way and quiet and its going to be the envy of many buyers on other sites. 62 sleeps and we will be out again.

Keeping a bottle of Oyster Bay company. When I've looked at links, I'd forgotten how to get back direct so had to go back into the internet connection. You're a bit lucky a Luddite like me can do this at all.

not sure now the Phases and timings work out now they seemed to go out of sync - as for the tiling stage payment I think the contracts varied a little and mine included completed electrics and one or two other things. At the end of the day it does not matter, completion will be welcome and you can be sure you will have to pay up. Didnt J nd A have the last two stages of the payments together?

Rocky just checked our contract and it's tiling, plumbing and electrical wiring so not due yet as I don't think I have loo's or sinks and not sure the wiring is finshed either. Our neighbours in C42 and C57 arrive back shortly so hopefully more news and photos. Have heard the grass seed is starting to go down so that will bring some colour to the whole site.

I'm glad to hear that the grass seeds have been put down - all that grey gravel is a bit hard on the eyes and the grass will definitely break it up a bit. Arthur has a new BlackBerry so at least we'll be in communication with the outside world when we next visit.

Hi Andysue,



Sorry haven't been on for so long - been away for Easter. I've logged onto snapfish and seen your photos - everything's coming on now isn't it? Did you manage to take photos of 103? The apartments all look the same from the photos!



PS been reading the msgs and we're with you pie, chips, gravy and mushy peas is pure heaven! And a nice pint to wash it down with!!!
