Thought for the Day
The best sermons are lived, not preached

Wentworth at war
It can be difficult to feel too much sympathy when people who are comfortably well-off get squeezed for a bit more cash, whether it is in the form of taxes or some other levy. Nevertheless, it does seem that the members of Wentworth Golf Club, and residents on the Wentworth estate (and by definition you cannot be on your uppers if you qualify to be in either group) have a case when they say that the club’s new owners are hiking their subs at an unacceptable rate. These new owners comprise a Chinese conglomerate operating under the name Reignwood, which has said that existing Wentworth members must pay £100,000 simply to retain membership, and an annual sub of £16,000, which is double what existed before.

Save up to £80 with an Ex-Demo GoKart

Feb 22 2016

**04/04/2016; SORRY, ALL EX-DEMO GOKARTS ARE SOLD NOW**

We have a limited number of ex-demo GoKarts for sale. They’ve had only a maximum of 10 uses, so there will be some signs of use to the frame, but this will be purely cosmetic.

Each trolley has been carefully checked and cleaned in our factory, and will be mechanically as good as a new trolley. Which is why we are able to give them the full two year warranty.

You can choose between Manual or Automatic speed control, and any one of our six colour schemes. The battery will be brand new, so you can choose between traditional lead/acid or the new lightweight lithium option.

Price wise they’re quite a bargain, with £70 off the manual trolley, and an £80 saving if you go for the Automatic.

Please click here for more info, and to buy.
