    Default Midges

    I'm just back from Reiss beech and the midges are at it big style.

    We have a number of different remedies and contraptions in our shop to help keep the little beasties at bay and would be delighted to thin them out.

    Sold out of our Midge repellent Goats Milk Body Butter at the Mey Games, most of it went to Northern Constabulary.

    not sure what to say to you AliciaMackinnon

    perhaps you stay inside at the right times

    or maybe you dont get them in Thurso ????

    We get them here in East Mey when there is no wind, which luckly is rare

    I bought my Mum and Dad a midgie eater to combat the evil little beasties at their house.....but if they dont use it.....it will be coming home with me to combat those evil little beasties at ours before getting returned to them!
    The more its used the less midgies there are to bite/kill the next year!

    i hope they paid for it out of there own wages!!!

    i can't see the police being out in the places where the midges are enough to warrant spending tax payers money on midgey cream! midges aren't causing them not to do their job either! they are covered pretty much from head to toe anyway and if they are getting bothered by midges i'm sure they could afford to buy it themselves, i haven't heard of any other employees getting supplied with midge cream

    stupid purchases like this the full length of the country is exactly why we are in the state we are in today

    stupid things like this

    and this

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10499030

    and a million other things i cant be bothered to post up lol its ridiculous especially the 100,000 to change the colour of their shirts
    It's Nice to be Nice!

    I have had midgie cream and suntan lotion supplied at work when on outside jobs.
    So its not just the police that can get it issued.
