Folks,
I am in a spot of bother as unknown to me Pilkington Tiles have gone into liquidation and I need a few border tiles that I bought from their factory shop in Poole (Dorset) - now closed.

I have found out that all the remaining stock went up to Manchester and guys in the shop there have confirmed that they have some of the border that I am after to finish a job.. Problem being they don't do mail order so won't post the few borders I need!

Desperate as it is I was wondering if the power of Pigeon Watch has a member living close enough or knows someone who could pick-up and post the borders to me?? I would certainly make it worth their while to the value of 30 (plus the cost of the tiles and postage) if it saved me a trip up North for a few tiles....

Yours hopefully, Richard

I'm not a million miles away either and often go past that junction, if you mean the Clifton junction off the M60
Let me know if you're stuck :good:

Great response, Many Thanks.

I should be all sorted now as Jonesy1 is going to pick them up on Saturday. :)

I had a feeling the power of Pigeon Watch would come through!

What a site and bunch of guys.. Hope I can do the same for some of you one day :blush:

Cheers, Richard
