Re: Lagging pipes

We used pipe lagging tape. We got it from OneStop it's basically a 50 mm rolls of plastic adhesive tape. Please use white, the black decays very quickly in the sun.

So your data (subject to a roaming limit), minutes and text allowances will work in our Europe Zone, just like they do at home. If your UK monthly data allowance is over 25GB, you’ll have a Ro...

My flight Paphos- Bournemouth last Saturday went ahead. Its a day flight, left slightly ahead of schedule and arrived 20 mins early at Bourrnemouth. It's a very small airport, but very efficient.
