Cornwall courier
« on: March 10, 2014, 09:36:56 AM »
Hi all. I need to get a couple of windscreens from Falmouth Cornwall to Essex/London, I don't suppose anyone is making a trip of this description in the next few days? A long shot I know!
Or, does anyone know a good courier who does a Cornwall to London run?   Thanks.

If I still had a car,(none since '09) I would have gone down there for you Bob and picked them up. Had some great holidays down that way. Only six hours journey time.  Hope you get someone to help.

Well you have a moped Rob! Couldn't you strap them to yourself some how? ;D

I love it down that way too, where did you used to holiday? We tend to favour the Looe, Polperro, Fowey are.

Eh ? I had the same problem last year when I got the Bond back end , we made a weekend of it , visited aunty and half way down spent the night withe brother in Somerset . Funny how we think these distances off putting . In the U.S. They wouldn't , but then again with our road system and fuel price. Make a lovely weekend of it Bob Spring is in the air

We rented cottages in Bodmin, Boscastle, Launceston, Looe, Camelford, Tintagel over the years. Sometimes going to Mid Wales for a week and then down to Somerset, Devon or Cornwall the following week. Loved driving around the country lanes etc. :D :D :D
