hmmm. I reckon if I went to the BM to ask for money for such a project,
they'd regard it as ample proof of marble-loss, and foreclose on me.

besides, had enough trouble raising about 2 grand less than that, recently.

And offer free work experience to the local comp year 10s in "Large Vehicle
Maintenance and Repair". He could even offer NVQs and Modern
Apprenticeships. There would be plenty of work to go round, or so I'm told.
He could make a mint. There's a lot of money in private-sector "training".

How about a mobile shop,cafe or even Pub.Just get a water trailer and fill
with beer like they do abroad.You'll be able to park it on the beach, up a
hill, or any out of the way tourist spot.
Don;t think health and safety drive 4x4's so should be alright for a quick
getaway.Sex and tourism is where all the money is how about a mobile brothel
for Farmers!!

ah, but I've just replaced the disco 'cos it didn't have enough seats.
current one has 8 pax and the ability to add 4 more, given the right driving
licence.

You almost made me spill my cornflakes!!!
I now have this vision of the aforementioned Mr Shackles touring the valleys
in a bright green 101 sheep brothel, hahaha. He could even put a sign on
it, saying something like "COME IN AND EWE's THE FACILITIES, WELLIES
PROVIDED"
Nice one. :-) :-) :-)

Yebbut, you'd need a Dodge Ram as well. Set up right, you could fleece the
customers.

No, but yes. No, I was not being serious ( a rare event). But yes, there
is a lot of money in training these days, since it all started being
outsourced. The company I used to work for had about 40 staff, delivering
NVQ assessments and everything from door manager courses to health and
safety. I left after being refused a pay review by a man in a brand new
Jag, whose wife co-incidentally had just taken delivery of a new Nissan.
The other partner had a Merc and her husband a Peugeot. All in the same
week. I was told I could not have a pay rise on the grounds that the
company couldn't afford it. I left the next week. But yeah, the money is
there. You have to get used to dealing with Govt funding agencies, though,
which is something I could never do with a straight face or a BP of less
than 200/120.
