not sure if anyones interested but B&Q are selling a 27" long round bladed spade, made by roughneck, for only 8.98.
the same ones that are advertised by Treasure island for 16 +5.50 P&P.and by
Regton for 14.69 + 3.49 P&P
they are really well made and have a lifetime warranty.
Ideal for 'tecting, and nice size to hook onto a belt.
Or you could, grab yourself and OAP drag them down to B&Q on a wednesday and save another 10%.

Ian both myself and my father (b ea ch boy) have used the spade and have no problem with it at all its really well made, we've put a small metal plate bracket on the stem held with a jubillee clip so that it clips onto a belt to save carrying it by hand. the spar hand can then be used to carry a mars bar, cup of tea etc hahaha

Ah right, that explains it Kev, I saw said spade at the Caerleon rally and my first thoughts were "some cheapskate has put jubilee clips around his spade to hold it together rather than buy a new one"

Apologies my friend.lol.  Smiley Smiley
