Sorry to hear about your board problems guys. Chappers has been banging on about how great it is for ages. 

I was hoping to get over there at some point - hope you find a new venue and manage to recover as much of the current set up as poss. good luck with the dismantle

This is probably no use to you but if you are desperate to find some storage for your boards until a new venue is found then I can offer storage for as long as you want.
The problem is I'm not especially near being in Tod (near Bridestones), but if you can get the boards over here I'll keep them for as long as you want.
Like I say probably no use to you, but thought I'd offer.

Nice one Nik, Mark has a van that we can fit all the panels in and maybe some of the timber save the giant 6 metre roof beams. I'll ring him tomorrow and see if it's possible!

No problem. Like I say it's not exactly a local storage solution but if it is of use to you then let me know.

Nik, that's real generous of you thanks. I'm not sure what plans have been made as I've been otherwise engaged, but your offer is much appreciated.

Top board name Nik-think many young fathers here will appreciate it.

The dispensary has been renamed the "8x4 assemblage of 18mm mold spores sitting in fatnecks basement until further notice'. Catchy I know.

Vibe; Old Skool with a capital O (crimpy polished Bendcrete style & a bare concrete floor).

Man up you faggots.

I.e.
You know, there's going to be sex, drugs, rock-n-roll...chips, dips, chains, whips...You know, your basic high school orgy type of thing. I mean, uh, I'm not talking candlewax on the nipples, or witchcraft or anything like that, no, no, no. Just a couple of hundred kids running around in their underwear acting like complete animals.

I think 'unforgiving' is fair.

You paid 13.99 for Sublime's Greatest hits?  They saw you coming.

Looks good though, nice one.
And, you are correct: Cre55brook is totally naughty here.
(Welcome btw)

Who can truly put a price on funk?
And on that note, I personally would trade a kidney to find my Gangstar albums from back in the day. They give me half a grade. :dance1:

13.99 is a bit of rip thinking 'bout it though.......
