Re: Architect

You may not need an expensive "full fat" architect for a domestic extension. We're probably in the same place as you and have engaged Hertford Planning Service, http://www.hertfordplanning.co.uk/, seem pretty competent so far, but early days.

All regular Tesco stores are Superstores, the biguns are Extra's, the littluns are Expresses and the urban big city ones are Metro's

Re: Kennels

I've used two, Bayford Kennels, http://www.bayfordkennels.co.uk/, and Mimram Kennels, http://www.mimramkennels.co.uk/, of the two I preferred Bayford Kennels, both were ok. However now I board Barney with a dog walker, a better if not cheaper solution imo.

Re: 24 Hour Gym Planned For Town Centre

It's actually a really good fit for the town, services are obviously a more vital segment than "small town" retail. This guardian article points to a 44% rise in gym spending in the last year (really?)

Re: Want to get my house valued, recommend me some agents, please,

Thanks all. Chose one of the "old lot" and one of the "new lot", so far have seen one of the older established agencies and very impressed. Seeing one of the very new lot later today. I expect to be impressed by them too as an initial valuation is pretty much a sales job anyway,

Re: Senova Cycles

I can second BTWIN bikes at Decathlon in Harlow. You get a hell of a lot of bike for your money
Yeah I've tried to pick one up, a hell of a lot of bike.

For a student/station bike I'd do second hand, even cheapish new bikes have the patina of "new" and therefore shiftable by the shifty.
