    It's o'k dave insn't it for you, your mobility scooter runs 12 volts. There will be loadsa fuel no strikes as yet just people hearing what they want to hear, and not what is actually been said. So calm down ladies.

    My nearest town of any size is Bideford. 14 miles away. Bideford has already run out of diesel. The next possible supply point is Barnstaple, about 23 miles to the nearest filling station. Sainsbury's. Always a queue there.

    Dorset Police were forcing some garages with fuel to close today as the queues were becoming traffic hazards

    Regards

    They had both petrol and diesel at Curridge Services just off the M4 at Junction 13, five minutes from Newbury Air Rifle Club, when i was putting up the directions signs about 16:30hrs this afternoon, and no queue, but it was 148.6p a litre for petrol!

    Got enough so i can get to club over the weekend.

    Everything now set up, apart from winding out the strings and nailing up the plinking range boards (the posts are already out), first thing in the morning.

    Hope to see you all tomorrow.
