Throwing more light on Childcare services.
I live close to Gatwick Airport where we have less 9ja ones. My wife had to stop her job because my job varies day, late & night shift. A friend recommended A baby sitter for me. I also saw the baby sitter on Childcare.co.uk
To cut story short, I lend her £100 b4 she start looking after my little one. She failed to pay me back and she was threatening me that she will report me to the police and sue me just because I message her friends, family about her evil act. On my town page on Facebook, I discovered she stole things from kid parents she was looking. She is a Botswana girl. I thank God that she did not look after my kid and that i only lost £100 because she said to me that i should learn not to give my little one to strangers. Am planning of having a permanent afternoon job so that my Mrs can do permanent early job because my kids will be two ✌️ soon and most nanny's over here charges over £12 after tax & N. I
You should have told her to go ahead and report to the police. That is not harassment moreover you lent her the money and have the proof so you have a strong case.

Happy New Year everyone

Yesterday my recycling bin went missing so I decided to check my CCTV to see who the culprit was. To my amazement I see the bin man empty the bin and then throw the bin in the dust cart. He seems to be high on something. I’ve reported him to the council. This is the cctv clip

Next time your bin goes missing it might not be your next door neighbour.
Lol....... definitely high on something cheap
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by kaad: 3:53pm On Jan 04
okay, so we moved to a another apartment in November, I'm a student so i applied for discount on our council tax
and till now we have not received any bill and don't even have a CT account number, I hope this will not have any negative effect or the bills being increased or something. or is their something we are missing? like we haven't received any correspondence from the council.
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by DisGuy: 4:23pm On Jan 04
^^ cant recall exactly but your council tax will be calculated for 10 instalmental payment meaning you get 2 months free**...please call your council to double check

I have been told to contact my local MP but after serious thought I decided not to. As I don’t really want the bin man to loose his job. The council have ordered another bin for me free. So I’m cool.

You see why I mentioned lottery? I don't blame the husband for having his reservations, likewise I don't blame the wife, for enjoying her services and price and I don't blame the nanny, for attempting to overstay her visa.......


As things stand at the moment, employing her is highly risky (financially and legally).......


Likewise employing her on an expired visa, is also equally risky (legally and financially).......

They all have a decision to make and take, unfortunately I would not decide for them.......


Thanks for your advice

Please I have another question, can a mother who is a British citizen living in the uk fill for her daughter who is 25years and lives in Nigeria to come and live permanent or settle in the UK with her? Why I asked is that a classmate of mine is here and I asked her if she came in through visiting visa, she said No that her mum fill for her, so she had a legal stay. She said that all her siblings are British citizen and live in the UK. Please do UK do such? bc I know that it is very possible in USA but for UK I am not sure so I decided to ask. I will appreciate your responses dear house.

If they owe you any money, they would normally send it out automatically.......

The worst office to call to confirm refund, is that tax office......

Because, you might turn out to be owing them money.....

Are you on emergency code or is there something you are supposed to be claiming for ? If so then you might be owed a refund. If you are an employee then you will automatically get it but if you are self employed you will need to put in a tax return.

The only option from me to you, is if you have UK's certificate (BSc, MEng, MSc PhD) and work experience, try apply to companies who are tier two sponsor. Faith is key, it's possible.

This has nothing to do with african’s mind. For such a minor error this guy could loose his job, I don’t really want to pursue the case because the council have already ordered a new bin for me. It’s too early in the year for me to be chasing this. When I took a critical look at the video I think the guy was drunk or high on something.

I like the fact you didn't pursue it dough, but he shouldn't have been high on the job and imagine it was something worse he carried and dumped... just saying

Agreed not Africa's mind. These guys are wild, particularly, uneducated ones. This guy will mess you up if it were other way.

Welldone every one,

please if someone says OUTSIDE MANCHESTER, SUCH AS LONDON, GLASGOW, SCOTLAND AND WALES, SHEFFIELD, LIVERPOOL, LEEDS,BRADFORD ETC.
Does the person means cities or towns in UK and England? Just trying to find out the remaining places the person meant.

Based on my research on Google. Here is what i got.
Cities in UK
https://simple.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_in_the_United_Kingdom

And

Cities and towns in England

https://simple.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_and_towns_in_England


Which means the cities in UK and cities and towns in England are the other places.

Am I right?

There’s a huge difference between England and UK. UK means United Kingdom and it comprises England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

What you’re asking is if there’s a difference between cities in Lagos and Cities (and towns) in Nigeria. Whatever is a citiy in Lagos must be a city in Nigeria but whatever is a city in Nigeria may not be a city in Lagos.

Glasgow is in Scotland so it’s obviously not a city in England. Manchester is a city in England and therefore is a city in the UK but not a city in Scotland, Wales or NI.

I doubt that you can file for family to stay here permanently and legally unless they are under 18 or a spouse. I have heard of ancestry visa, google that to find out if that’s how your 25 year old friend stayed.

Thanks so much for your response. Am not even looking for cities or towns. Google search put me in that direction.

What am actually looking for is the other places OUTSIDE Manchester aside from LONDON, GLASGOW, SCOTLAND AND WALES, SHEFFIELD, LIVERPOOL, LEEDS,BRADFORD
