Barrie Brothers Cyf was the name of the company so the new business will have to have a new company name as it's unlikely that they will trade as a partnership.

Am I being a bit too optimistic in thinking that my insurance company will be giving me a partial refund on my insurance payment now that they have this evidence?

I read that article earlier Steve and was really disappointed after reading it.      They had the business in a small building on the caravan site near the roundabout as you approach Newborough.     At the time we did many walks in that area and often finished it with a coffee and cake in the cafe, it represented good value for money and the food we had was very tasty too.
However they expanded their business and hiked up the prices so we stopped going there as soon as they did that.
What has happened in this case is one that really annoys me and I know that nothing will ever be done about it.    People often set out in business trading in their own name but as it expands then they form a limited company and become directors of it.     If the company goes in to liquidation then there is no comeback usually on the company directors and so they can trade again usually under another company name
When I was working one person I knew had traded under nine different company names and yet nothing could be done against the director as it was the limited company that was liable to pay the debts.
Like I say nothing will ever be done to correct this loophole whichever Party gets in to power at the next general election

Wales' 20mph limit leads to '20% drop in vehicle damage claims'
Insurance company says evidence of drop 'clear' since the nationwide 20mph default speed limit was introduced last year

Sea dogs and landlubbers alike descended on Conwy at the weekend for the town's annual Pirate Festival.

The event celebrates Wales' rich history of buccaneering seafarers, such as Pembrokeshire's infamous Black Bart, the former Governor of Jamaica Henry Morgan from Llanrumney and Rhuddlan brothers Owen and John Lloyd, who some believe were the true inspiration for Long John Silver in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.

The festival attracts thousands of visitors to Conwy each year to discover more about pirate history, immerse themselves in the music and arts that came out of the period and much more.

Veterans, cadets, civic leaders, and the public attended a service at Llandudno War Memorial to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy.

Among the ex-service personnel present were two Second World War veterans both whom laid wreaths in memory of fallen comrades.

Organised by the Llandudno branch Royal British Legion ,the service was led by The Reverend Canon Philip Barratt with prayers including those written by Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, eighty years ago.

This makes me angry.................

The huge debt trail left by Marram Grass as brothers set to relaunch Anglesey restaurant
Marram Grass and Lerpwl restaurants left more than £1m in debts after both ventures went into liquidation

Companies House records show they left owing more than £1m from those previous ventures - including staff wages and tips, money to suppliers, a bounce back loan and cash to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' (HMRC). These failures did come at an incredibly difficult time for the sector - with the pandemic closely followed by a cost of living crisis that has hit hospitality very hard.

But a local said there is some ill-feeling over the debts left now that they are starting afresh. The owners were asked to comment but declined at this stage. A source said they had put everything into the two businesses.

Covid-19 / Re: General Covid 19 and FLU news...New combined flu and Covid jab

New combined flu and Covid jab has 'higher immune response'
Moderna has been testing a single vaccine giving full protection

Moderna say their new combined flu and Covid vaccine provokes a higher immune response than if you were to have the vaccines as separate single jabs. The firm says their latest results mean the new jab could be rolled out on the NHS if it is approved by regulators this year.

The NHS currently uses Moderna's Spikevax vaccine for Covid-19 booster programmes, along with Pfizer/BioNTech's Comirnaty. Moderna has created and tested a version of Spikevax which includes a flu vaccine dose, meaning people wouldn't need two separate jabs to give them Covid-19 and flu protection.

Moderna's findings showed that the mRNA-1083 vaccine led to higher immune responses against flu and Covid than two other single vaccines currently in use, including the current Spikevax. This is the first time final phase 3 data for a combined vaccine has been published by any firm.
