    I've got it on cs today but neither cs or cos for yesterday

    Annoyed i didn't get any today now. I wasn't interested in it for free but £2 profit would have done nicely

    If you need to locate a particular item in T....find a member of staff of management level/team leader/section leader....they usually wear the navy blue jackets/own clothes....ask them if they have the T app on their mobile to locate an item in store. They can then check their phone, will tell you if they stock the item, and if they do, they will tell you what aisle number the product is located..(they usually take you to the product).
    I find this is a really useful service....Saves a lot of time

    Free flu jab at Boots....bubbs and TS have probably mentioned it previously

    Winter is nearly here, and as we all know, it’s great to be prepared, so book your flu jab now and it could help you stay well throughout the colder season. If you’re aged 65 or over, you’re eligible for a free flu jab courtesy of the NHS**, so why not come into a Boots store near you for yours?

    Not only will you help protect yourself from flu, you’ll help stop it spreading to your friends and family too. Other benefits include:

    • The flu jab is carried out by a specially trained Pharmacist in the privacy of a consultation room
    • You can book a slot at over 1,900 Boots stores† – some open seven days a week including evenings*
    • If you’re entitled to a free flu jab, we’ll let your GP know you’ve had it at Boots

    Book online or visit your local store. See you soon.

    I just made the mistake of catching sight of the outside temperature.

    6.4 degrees C

    This time last week in Madeira it would have been around 20 degrees C.

    I had pulled up and jumped out of the car ready to pick, and then realised I need boots, trousers and it was getting dark...........I will return next week with boots, trousers, long sleeves, gloves and in the day light with a bucket (OH can separate the green bit from the nuts)
