Thanks Neale, and Ray for the comments, the day was unreal my youngest son David was with me and he was my rock, I found all the people there so genuine, be they a gold medal winner of a European bricklaying apprentice competition or a peer of the realm, I got on with them all as their passion and respect for tradesmen crossed any class or status divide.
I will post some more pics, (but will not bore you to death) I feel I have at least been a humble envoy of our noble craft, our trade will survive forever, a robot will never overcome what we do day to day.
Respect to all members.
At the end of the day you work for yourself and you can only do the work to your own professional standards.
I'd just keep records/photos of my own work in case something comes back to bite him and he tries to proportion responsibility .
Fantastic Ray, sorry I never got time to pop in, we were pushed for time, but I look forward to meeting you in April.
The day was amazing, the meal, the company the drinks, rubbing shoulders with Sir this, and Sir that, MBE's OBE's Lord Mayors of London ex Lord Mayors etc, all real good people.
I will post some pics, as I get them, here are a few.
Just before you do the tongue test distract your customer so you can have a quick peek on the box, or back of the tile the bit that says made in Spain or made in Italy, Turky etc, then do the test, tell them the type of tile and where it was made, you will get the job. Any tiler who can tell what type of tile you have and where it was made by tasting it has got to be good.
One quick tip Ash, if you are not sure if a tile is ceramic or porcelain, put your tongue against the reverse side of tile, if it grabs your tongue it is ceramic, taking the moisture from your tongue, if not, it is porcelain, dust pressed or other.
I have had some strange looks from clients when I do this, but it is a good guide.
I SAID FORCE IT !!
Mr Devlin has called to say they have attended at the Defendant's premises to go ahead with the attachment but
unfortunately the premises are empty and shuttered. He has asked if you would wish them to go ahead and try
and force their way into the premises.
If they did that there would be approximately a charge of £200.00 inc
VAT but this is for only 1 roller shutter and if there are no further locks behind the shutters.
Would you wish the Officer to go ahead with this?
May we please hear from you as soon as possible.
