    Feel it would be better to bring them into Birmingham rather than try to post them, I would prefer to hand them over. I can be in a pub in Birmingham with them up to around 7pm Monday or Tuesday this week, going to Egham fest for a few days Wednesday, or Monday or Tuesday next week as I'll be off to go to Peterborough fest on the Wednesday followed by Newark for a few days. We don't stay out late in town.

    Let me know what's best for you.

    A big thanks to you Gill for the box of mats. A big thanks to Andy as well for being much more organised than myself !



    Just had a look through and there are some obscure breweries in there - well ones i hadn't heard of anyway.

    In case you didn't know there were 424 mats in that cornflake box.

    Thanks again.

    I didn't know that. If I was taking part in a guess how many beermats are in this cornflake box competition (a bit like guess the weight of the cake but with a cornflake box and beermats) I would have said closer to 200. It surprises me although I was able to add an office collection of beermats to Gill's donation. Hope you've got room for them all !
    Waes hael!

    A summary of the story behind Hondo's link:

    It’s about a furniture shop, in Surrey, called ‘Innsatiable’. They are giving away free alcoholic drinks to customers but ask customers to buy furniture or a beermat to support the business. Since opening in July they have sold around 12,000 beermats but also some furniture items as well. Because they are not selling alcohol they do not have or need a licence, which makes it difficult for the police to stop them from serving alcohol. If you want to buy some furniture (or a beermat) late at night they are open until 11.45

    I wonder whether it will last.

    I also wonder whether Delboy will buy me and Gill 400 pints in exchange for all of those beer mats

    Hi Delboy
