All those living Chicksands/ Henlow

Just to let you all know that apparently the Esso garage just off the A600 in Shefford and the Jet garage just off te A600 in Henlow have been card cloning. A few people from Chicksands have already been victims of it.

Its official - Bedford is officially my least favourite place in the UK.

I never trusted any of the places around there for cash, normally did the cash back thing instead. Was uneasy at the number of ethnic youths hanging around a certain cash point in the town centre.

Similar scams becoming more commonplace in my part of the world as well (north-west UK) its becoming a bit of a nightmare. Local crime gangs are acutally fighting over which cash points fall into their 'territory'.

None of this fills me with confidence, what with being posted to DISC shortly... Is rural Bedfordshire really that full of crims?

Could anyone provide me with lowdown on the area, please?

Shefford has a good curry house... and ummm... well the rest of it sucks.

Bedford has a couple of ok (ish) establishments to go refresh yourself. But mainly its a backwards place, with the odd neaderthal and immigrant to boot. Others may disagree, but I spend as little time as possible in that part of the world.

Thanks for that T_C_C.

Two dodgy pubs and a curry house. Please at least tell me there's a decent escape route, otherwise I'll be wishing I hadn't signed up for death by languages...

Wednesday night is student night in Bedford and is therefore hoofing!

Oh course, if you don't like young nubile females...

Shefford Tandoori is very nice indeed!

The Tandoori has already been mentioned.

I am sure ICE has been filled in..erm filling you in with the local dogging sites etc.

There are some good pubs just a few miles out that escape the usual crowd from the camp. Once you get off the main road though it can be a bit "backward".

It is a nice location though with reasonable access to the M1 and A1. Being more centrally located than Ashford, it can be a bummer if you want to go to the beach !!!!

The kebab house in Bedford can be good for a fight at kicking out time!

:roll: Trust you!

Teech if you need to visit dogging sites go out of camp and it's the first woods on the right! 8O
(There's something that the Welcome to Chicksands booklet won't tell you)

Before you ask, no I didn't partake, but I heard some very good stories from the guys who patrol round them there parts! :twisted:

Ice
