Is anyone in the East London/South Essex area putting in an order into the Thornes sale?

I only have one colony and want a small number of things (national brood box, OMF, crown board, roof, couople of supers, perhaps and a QE) so I am looking to piggyback someone else's order.

surely real cost of time, effort and petrol outweigh any potential P&P savings of this idea (unless you live next door to each other).

No, just so busy with work I am unlikely to get round to doing it unless compelled to do so.

And it's always nice to make local contacts.
