    At the head office they have a pub, and micro-brewery if I recall correctly, called Bugman's. Good beer, and reasonable prices.

    I can't afford any of the things our local council has discounts for, even with them.

    i learnt a long time ago that we here can use the swimming baths in town and any other county council baths.....off peak......finishes at 4!

    i called up and said the only discount that i am aware of i cant take advantage of as i work the only time its on, they sounded intrigued and said they would call back.....was about a month ago now lol

    we also get junk in our pay slips too but even with offers and discount i find it ore expensive that most places any way. either that or its selling mobility scooters or something else i would never need

    In Northumberland we get discounts advertised every month on our wage slip for things like cheaper car insurance and discounts on boiler cover and the like. Once tried the car insurance and it was still cheaper to go elsewhere so was of no use!!! but will keep looking and trying. .
