  1. Tina Sparkle may be able to help with 31.
    On 59 Swarthmore are having a jewellery weekend which may be helpful. Nice young man could help with 96 and 86. On 64: B&Q have apparently been selling rolls of insulation. On 80 Business Link do local free workshops which could help. On 91 and 68, I have friends in Leeds with these hobbies if an introduction to them may be useful. Oh, and if 13 is always S, it doesn't count ;) Sam x

  2. PS on 64 I forgot to say for £1.

  3. @Sam: I've just realised I typo'd 31; what I meant was the WYP. Still, a backstage tour of the Yorkshire Evening Press could be very cool indeed, and I might just leave it as it stands :)

    I shall discuss the others with you soon, too.
