Hello Roy and Readers,
                                  I thought i should share this with your readers Roy, as i was particularly impressed with your gentlemanly service........  I recently enquired as to the value of some stone artefacts i had in my possession.  Roy answered and although he doesn't buy such articles, he immediately suggested that i try a friend of his at Cheshire Demolition in Macclesfield. Roy even went out of his way to find me the number out of his own phone.
Stan at CD invited me to take my stone ornaments into him and he offered me a very acceptable price, which i duly accepted. I thought back to how Roy had helped and realized that i would probably still have my artefacts if he had not been willing to go that extra mile for me. I might add here, that i contacted two other stone traders, one of whom, put the phone down on me and the other very abruptly answered 'No i dont!' - and then put the phone down!  Thank Heavens for gentlemen like Roy i say! A very grateful - Jon Weeks 

Flag Theft

Hi there!
             I've been trading in Natural York Stone Flags now for over twenty years.
 
Something that never ceases to surprise me, is how often our customers tell us the same story, over and over again.  I'm talking of course, about those amongst us, who, quite brazen facedly, steal stone flags for a living.
 
Personally, i've never needed to steal york stone flags.  I've always found that paying a decent price for them, generally keeps me and mine in clover.  Frankly speaking, these stone thieves actually put in more effort than i do and must come out with less to show for their toils than i have ever done!
 
Still, they (three or four to a van) divvy up and risk imprisonment by breaking into back gardens etc and digging up as many stone flags as they can, from areas throughout the N.W. of England.
 
Some of the stories i've heard in stone yards over the years, would make you think twice of having stone flags on your premises at all.
 
They're always interesting, but really cocky stories - gobsmacking and devilish tales of the cheek and gaul required to get away with such a crime.
 
But what can we do about it?
 
I'd appreciate your views.......
