Re: TV question for the slightly older members :)

Was it Nice Time presented by Kenny Everet, they said they'd had a letter from the dogs of Burnley saying there were not enough trees so they planted one for them.
The tree had a small plate at the bottom, probably long gone now.

If you get pension credit you qualify for the cold weather payment, but I don't think the state pension alone qualifies.

As I understand it, all pensioners get the £10, one pensioner from each household gets the Winter fuel allowance and then the cold weather payment if it gets cold enough.

The list of benefits on the .Gov web site includes state pension so you will get it Steve.

Plenty of cars don't have that range either.
But you can "charge" them in 2 minutes which is what puts many people off EV's also you could arrive at a service station and all the charging points could be taken, great if you are on a tight schedule.
