No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

For a moment there Kevin you had me going, but I think you've got at least one handle on the situation.

Sadly, as I've had to say on a number of occasions during this campaign, politicians words are no good, nor is a piece of paper - until it is voted upon and then rubber stamped. As DMBC are proving so efficiently by their determination to throw us a sop, and then carry on regardless. Easy words by Anne Millward I'm afraid - but I like your observations, 'tho I doubt she will.

This is a prime example of democracy NOT in action. But as I've said, it is not too late to stop 'em and turn this around.

Instead of incredulity on our behalf, it's action we need and pulling together, especially at this difficult time when everyone is pre-occupied elsewhere.


Kind wishes to all, Nigel

Hi All,

Well said Nigel, this is our only chance - these collections I believe are the best in the world and the only ones in the UK.

Lets pull together!
