    As does the Observer - you can still enter the Everyman Crossword comp by fax! :eek:;)

    Sound business reasons for keeping both. Pagers are not affected by the tech used to stop X-rays leaking to areas of hospitals where they are not needed, and so are more reliable in some situations than mobiles. Mobiles are, in any case, prohibited in large areas of hospitals.

    As for the fax, I can't recall the exact details but they have a higher status legally than e-mails.

    Turned up at Chipstead FC yesterday in rain, mud, cold etc to see them play FC Romania in FA Trophy. Interested to see this sign, so returned my knuckle dusters, bog rolls, broken bottle and zombie knives to the boot of the car.

    We have similar signs at the rugby club. I coached mini & junior rugby for many years and have enough stories about the antics of spectators and coaches to write a book. The worst has to be when I was refereeing a primary school tag rugby tournament. I ended up evicting the headteacher of one school from the side lines.

    They have disabled mooring posts on the Thames in Staines. And judging by the corrosion, have had for some time.

    It's upside down because the murky grey at the top is the Thames and
    a) I can't swim
    b) it looks wrong if you rotate the pic.​

    Don't see all that many coracles in Staines.

    Mind you, their seem to be a lot of outrigger canoes about these days. Wonder why that is.
