Re: Bricklayers fred innit

... I’m sadly still thinking of it - as a nipper my Dad would send me down to collect it and I could keep the change to buy some chocolate or sweets in those large glass jars. I daren’t recall how many years that was ago *, I can still see the guy who grabbed the newspapers ushered into the shop - l...

Re: Bricklayers fred innit

Re: Potential Greyhound syndicate

Many thanks for the interest so far Let’s give a week or so and see what the final interest is As Oioiboy explained the monthly bill won’t be much at all between a group of us - providing they are fit they almost pay for their keep with run money/ winnings.

Four bins here - not too bad for me as I’ve a mid size garden but for terrace houses etc you can’t shift for sodding bins

General house waste
Cardboard/ Paper
Cans/ plastic
Garden waste - this was free and is now optional but around £40 a year
