Part Pots of Paint and Plywood Wanted

I am looking for part pots of paint and some 6mm plywood to use on our  charity coconut shy. 

I'd rather use part pots as I need a variety of colours and never going to use  full tins.

We are making a coconut shy for our charity event at the  "Kent Miners Festival" and all proceeds from the day will go to a Miners Welfare Group. 

I've already got the metalwork sorted which is an ex market stall and the stall covers and now I need to do the decorative panels and decoration. 

If you got any part pots of paint in the shed thatI can have I'm in Stockport during the week, Leicester at weekends and Deal in Kent once a m onth. 

I'd be pleased to collect them if you are near these locations or on my route between them.  

I'm also looking for some used bplywood to make some decorative panels. I don't mind joining panels together but I will see what I can find. Old plywood would be fine.

Email me at [email protected] if you can donate any paint or used plywood for the project. I lreally ike using donated stuff because it recycles the stuff and it means people care.......

I've ordered 100 balloons too to give away like last year and some printed T shirts to wear promoting the coconut shy.

I'd be pleased to receive any paintings or drawings of clowns, balloons or flowers and will copy some of them on to the stall panels. You can post them to me, the address is on the website or you can scan them and email them to me.

Well enjoy your summer, have a good holiday and stay safe. 

Sea Fishing On Deal Pier, Kent

I was fishing off the Pier the other weekend, caught a dogfish that promptly waggled his body till he leapt off the hook. I been thinking about changing my tactics. I always use a single clipped down trace and fish on the bottom. I'm thinking of using a two boom flowing hook trace with a bottom bell lead like I use on a boat. I'm thinking of lifting my traces above the rocks and weed and even fit the lead on a rotten bottom so if it snags i just lose a lead.

I also been thinking aboutadding a small bait feeder at the bottom of my trace at the lead end. It works for Carp Anglers. If you can give me any advice or have something to say about fishing then get a reply in.

Theres apparently 50,000 people reviewing this site and i don't get one email. Make the old gaffer happy and start giving us a bit of response.
Anyway heres some fishing pics......
