We've got a fairly wide geographical spread of membership throughout the UK and on occasions there are items which may need moving from place to place.

I'm thinking of items bought on Ebay, things bought from Danbury, etc where it might be possible to form a chain to get the goods up, down or across the country, using individual members, who can pass things on until they get to their eventual destination.  

If you'd like to be part of this chain perhaps you could add your name to this thread - Tim could you set up a Sticky Topic for future reference?

Count me in.

Happy to be part of 'the network' and as Reading is reasonably central (east to west) and accessible from multiple motorways, we can also be a delivery/collection depot if needed.

Free cup of tea/coffee for all deliverers and collectors, or even a pitch for the night if its a late one!

>Abs: done.

I think it would be a good idea to detail how this would work logistically. Give a theoretical example for instance.

Double the chance of transporting something through Reading. Means we might need to meet up more often too! Rolling Eyes

Here you go Tim.

An example:

Getting a Pan from the Midlands to Lancashire

A man with a van, buys a pan where he can, online from a Paul in Walsall

A man in Halesowen, knows where it's going and takes it as far west as Towyn.

The kind man in Wales, travels up and down vales to take it close to the border

Where a man that we know, says it's not far to go and it's better than using mail order

The pan carries on, with a kind man called John - who takes up out of the county

Until one final push and with no great rush, the member has gotten his bounty.

I'm hoping the Delivery Service can help me get some books from Kitegirl to the grim uplands of Lancashire.

You may recall that whilst on tour in Spain last year we made friends with a couple from Porto, one of whom is an English language school tecaher and the other is Chairman of the Parent Teacher's Association.

They were setting up an English Club at the local junior school in their area and asked if I could find them some children's books in English to help them set up the library. I managed to get about 100 up here from friends, relatives and collegaues and shipped them over for them.

The Club was officially opened this month - see story Here.

They now need some more books to expand the library and to assist other schools, so I'm collecting again. On Facebook, Kitegirl (Rachel) said she had some she could let me have together with a signed copy of her book, Dragonflu and I wondered if there was any way we could get them from Kiteman up here, via the BraziBay delivery service.

If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.
