http://www.saynoto0870.com How many times have you got irritated by the fact that you cannot find the telephone number of your local branch of a national business or organisation. Instead you get an 0800 or 0845 number and some unconnected person speaking from a long distance away. A friend of mine gave me the address of a web site which provides local numbers as an alternative to the national call centre. Just follow the link and try it for yourself. I find it really useful and it is well used.
