Hello Richard, yep - fairly new to LJN...plus dont have time to go on here as often as I'd like! I live in North Kent, Greenhithe and I try and work around the Tunbridge Wells area mostly. Are you a new business?
I'll be moving down to London later this year / early next year - if you need any help at Chelsea or Hampton Court (even if it's just running for cups of tea and sandwiches!) I'd be happy to get stuck in. I think it'll take a while to establish myself down there again, so I'll have plenty of free time and won't cost anything. Good luck with the plans.
