Berwick to North Midlands

Post by Foden on Tue Oct 11 2011, 19:07

Just a long shot, but could anyone transport an iron baseplate 2ft long from the Berwick area down country to the North Midlands or Yorkshire area for me please? Thanks for looking.

Pete.

I wish you'd asked sooner Pete I know someone that's just done Scotland to Derby about 10 days ago. I'll ask on the Scottish vanners forum I'm on see if anyone else heading south in the next week or so.

We are only on temporary electricity at the moment Stu, a sub station exploded and left Ashbourne, Matlock, Bakewell, Uttoxeter and Cromford without power. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-15279267 They have set up mobile gennys for a week or so as the substation is still to unstable for workers to access it, of course the gennys have to be refuelled so the power goes of while they do that!
We plant to be back to normal whithin a week or two.

Pete.

Sorry to hear that Pete, That's a big sub station to take out that many houses, I'm sure they will give you a discount in your bill for all the disruption caused. Laughing Laughing I hope your soon back to normal Pete as I bet you loss power just when you need it. A sinilar thing happened to us but mainly our estate and they had a genny running for about 10 days the noise was unbelevable and it was at the other side of the estate must have been torcher for those near by.

Hope your sorted soon,

Stu.
