    I think even with the exchange rate, France is still cheaper than Cornwall. I'm going to France anyway.:BigGrin:

    I live in Cornwall,(Newquay to be precise) Much talk about the summer traffic and it can get quite bad. For all the bad publicity it is surprising how many people want to leave the area they are in and come to or retire to Cornwall. Anyway, I think you should all come to sunny Cornwall cause I,m booked to go to France. (Says it all I suppose).

    That would depend on where in France. Northern, you'll get English weather so why bother, but way down south you'll get decent weather and the style it attracts.

    No, no, that's what you are supposed to do with them. They were designed as a safe disposal system for biological waste by ecological Pendle Witches who did not know how to safely dispose of the waste after a good disembowelling session and they invented this bagging system which they buried down deep shafts and, incidentally, in the process invented the coal mining industry.

    No competition! France has more warm sunshine than Cornwall without the extreme heat of Spain; french bread, cheeses, and so on..... Why do you think we moved here (and so did other Brits)? We holidayed in Cornwall (and had a sunny day) and France and kept returning to the latter for all the above reasons, which led to the decision to move here.

    Come on down!
