Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

    I'd like to run to work, but then I would need to be getting a shower once I got to work which is problematic.

    Every year from April to October I walk to work and from November to march I go by bus, the good thing is that we have showers at work so I leave home at 6am and will be at work by 7am take a shower have breakfast and be on my desk by 8am :)

    It's piddling down here, it's horrible, and my roof is leaking.
    When i got up to go for a wee i thought i'd trod on a spider or something as i went in the bathroom. But when i put the light on it was just a little water stain. I had a leak less than 2yrs ago and 'cos it was only 1 slate that had slipped i couldn't get anyone to come out to do it. Eventually saw a guy doing a new roof on a house down the road and 'cos he was already here, he did it but i wondered at the time if it was done properly. He charged me about £75 and wasn't here 10mins. I've just been out into the garage to get a couple of old sheets/blankets that i use when i'm painting. All i can do until i can find a roofer is put something down in the loft where the drip is.
    Going to make a butty first then after i've had my dinner get up and see how bad it is.
    Liverpool is one of the wonders of Britain,
    What it may grow to in time, I know not what.
