Vintage radio service/repair nr Dinan?

I have an old UK valve radio circa 1950-60 that needs a check up.

Does anyone have ideas where I could arrange this? I'm about 20 mins south of Dinan.

Re: Vegetarians in France

Yeah, but you don't really have to BE veggie to have at least a modicum of sense about what that means.

I'm not Muslim or Hindu, but I think I'd basically know what is OK/not OK for them to eat.

I've lived in various countries over 40 years and I...

Re: Cost of private healthcare

Is it not the previous year's income? Why would it be 2 years back? The previous year would seem more logical.
