Dyb dyb dyb, Dob dob dobTina as a Girl Guide

Neil confesses that he only managed 2 weeks of cubs, because it clashed with 'Knightrider' on the telly!  The adventure of Scouting is gaining popularity, but more volunteers are needed..Tina finds out more.

Or you can get along to the Goonhavern Primary school today (14 October) at 5.30pm to join in the fun activities.

Neil admits he'd like a badge, any badge...

Driving Tests

So, after Undriveables was on TV last night we got chatting about driving tests...and a few more confessions. It turns out we weren't alone. Shelley failed her test before leaving he test centre and Rik was a bit too gungho with the handbrake - for good reason - have a listen.


And then Lorna's test resulted in a walk back to the Test centre and Claire wishes that older folks took a re-test at a certain age...

Now that opens up a whole can of worms... should we have to re-take a driving test past a certain age?
