    Nerys, its a lovely lake of approximately 30 acres, of which about half is usable , but only a couple of areas that I can launch from as its at present 10ft too high from the January floods.
    If it ever gets back to normal then there will be about 200 metres of beach to launch from.
    If you look on Google earth at Sugwas Pool Country Park. You can view the aerial view.
    Cheers Colin.

    I understand what you're saying Nerys, we had forms to fill ( got our doctor to help) as well about 8 years ago and then we get an annual revue, usually over the phone.
    Hope you get sorted, we need your wisdom.
    Cheers Colin.

    Colin, are those photos of the small lake that is near you? If so, you are lucky to have that near you. It looks quite big to me , but what is it like for launching? are the banks quite steep? My nearest club has rather steep banks with a platform at the bottom but wheelchair access is a no go for me, consequently I have a round trip of over a hundred miles to get to Cold Knap. In a way I don't mind because purely from a nostalgia point of view it is my childhood pond yacht sailing place and where I learnt to row.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Colin, We are with Western Power too, they did ring on the morning of the power cut to say what was happening and this was followed up a couple of days letter by a form to fill in about situation. After we had been off a few minutes, Alice set up the battery and inverter, she is my principle emergency service.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Nerys, I am sure that you could get help if you ask whoever manages your local power supply and explain your medical requirements regarding your power needs.
    We are supplied by Wester Power, and they are very helpful.
    I get messages via text and email if they know in advance of any work that requires a power off.
    And I get updates about faults and power cuts in our area.
    Cheers Colin, BTW well done on your promotion.

    Hi Colin. In a perverse way you are lucky that you have a ready made situation for help, but I am not sure what they would do here. I suppose we would best be described as a linear village and I have no idea if there are any other people in my situation nearby. Actually, my safety net is our big battery and inverter.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Rick, I am a member of the Worcester model boat club, but thats a round trip of 50 miles.
    But for my smaller boats I have a local lake about a 1/4 mile.
    But I can't get my larger boats through the gates.
    Cheers Colin.

    Good morning Nerys, the hamlet I live in is only 13 homes, and 5 of the residents are at risk. The transformer that feeds us is on a pole in the field behind my neighbour, that is usually where the generator is connected.
    I believe that would be normal procedure in rural areas, I don't know what would be normal in your area.
    Keep safe and get better soon, cheers Colin.
