I am pleased to be able to bring our forum back on-line. The reasons for me taking it away have not all been resolved, but the situation now is that I am able to bring it back to see if it still has a future. I will keep it live as long as there is a demand for it and that demand with be determined by its usage.

Unfortunately, I am not an owner anymore and it is very unlikely that I will be again, this means that I no longer have the ability to keep the content of the forum up to date and ensure the information given is accurate; that is something that will now depend on the forum members.

The forum will be maintained through Redstick Enterprises, but I will still monitor the forum's function, content and membership applications.

I would like to know if anybody is interested in taking on the role of Forum Administrator and helping to ensure the forum maintains the standards and quality of content set by all our members.

If anybody is interested in the role of Admin, or if any of the original Moderators wish to have that role reinstated, please let me know by emailing hof@redstick-enterprises.co.uk

Gumtree scam

Post by Geraldine » 2 years ago

We were notified first from Haven reception about 5 phone calls they had checking out a van we had on Gumtree. Someone by the name of Jo Jones was renting our van thro' a similar Advert on Gumtree. 1 customer I replied to earlier got back in touch saying she had been contacted by J J to rent our van - fortunately she knew we had no vans available so didnt bite - however I had 2 more from "Customers!" who had bought - advised paying using PayPal!
How many other copies of owner vans sold like this is unknown. The Police were informed and so was Gumtree
