Ha - that’s so funny!
As you’ve come out especially for Fred I hope he’ll be able to do this for you.
Now, with all the enquiries coming through, I thought I should at least phone him to let him know that I’ve put a shout out on his behalf because I didn’t have any work lined up for him. As grateful as he was, I think he was a mixture of touched and shocked that I’d done it.
So, the situation is this right now - he’s doing a bathroom refurb for the next 2-3 weeks and he should be able to start lining other work up from then onwards.
However, as he lives in Carshalton and the bathroom job is in Morden, he’ll be pushed for time to get over this way to look at everyone’s jobs so I said I’d be happy to survey and report back to him, after which he’d contact everyone personally. This might seem a bit weird as I won’t be taking any commission, but I’ve got lots of spare time on my hands and my experience in house building and refurbs and knowing Fred’s capabilities (having had him working on all of my properties including my homes since the late 80s) means that you’ll be in pretty good hands.
So, if you would like me to have a look or chat about any work you need doing please drop me a PM and I’ll give you my mobile number.
