Typical. Colleges gripe about resources and funding but when you try to give them something for free they can’t be bothered to come and collect it. The good people at Seymour Powell have, for some time, been attempting to dispose of a number of good quality drawing boards – six AO size boards, plus one big enough to hold a full size car – which are now surplus to requirements. And despite repeated telephone calls offering to give them away, two famous colleges have failed to come and pick them up. They’re now up for grabs, says Dick Powell. First refusal will be given to BA level courses, but ownership of a functioning van may tip the balance. Call Dick on 0171-381 6433.
