Maxim 

 

Steve O will be purcashing a new supply of maxim soon.  Contact him on 267-7779 or steveocallaghan@hsbc.com   to place your order.  Electrolyte (orange flavour) £11.50,  Maxim original £9.00

 

Steve says these prices are about one-sixth of the price you would pay by buying bottles of lucozade sport or equivalent from the supermarket, and Maxim has a better content.

 

Leeds Country Way soup bowls

 

I still have 15 of these in the back of my car.  They can also be used for keeping your supply of safety pins.  Please claim them from me any Tuesday or contact me to arrange collection or delivery.

 

I think Rob Bumstead still has some slate coasters for Calderdale, his phone number is 269-0124.
