Due to Covid restrictions , I am having a few short breaks in the UK instead of going abroad to Portugal or Lanzerote which is my favourite spot of late .
my Daughter will still be at Home with the Dogs but not answering Emails or Telephone calls and my mobile is not coming with me so no contact will be available while I am away .
1st break is next Bank Holiday weekend is to Whitby , for a short long weekend from Friday to Monday 28th to 31st of august
2nd break will be in two weeks after the Whitby break to my favourite place in the UK Brixham in Devon for 7 days .
so I also will not be able to take messages emails or telephone calls from 12th to 19th of September .
again my daughter is at Home with the dog’s but not answering any emails or telephone calls .
I may book another short break closer to Christmas it depends how work is going and bookings or the lack of them .
Out of the two I feel that Brixham has more to offer , in weather ( if lucky ) in scenery , and in places to visit nearby .
also local pub’s and Restaurants are good , but then again Whitbys pub and restaurant scene is not bad .
and Whitby is famous for it’s Northern soul and Goth weekenders … as well as Dracula .
Supporting eating out and UK business in B&B and shops is more important than chasing the summer sun abroad these days .
the UK economy is taking a battering and was bound to happen and is no big surprise , we could all lessen the hit if we buy British or stay British for holidays at the moment .
The UK public has got to start supporting UK business especially small local business which are the first to go , the Government has extended it’s support to small business owners until October
After this all small business owners are on their own ..its make or break , so go out book those short weekends in the UK spend some money in local shops and pubs and restaurants .
I could have so easily gone abroad for a couple of weeks , but feel that I must support those that may well support others , and in a round about way it effects us all .

A period of a round 1910 to 1936 is the time period of the table manufacture
Orme & sons well known for their preference to make tables in solid Oak …chances are if you see an old oak table it will be a Orme & sons .
This table is being sold on its own or with a very collectable Orme & sons Arts & crafts scoreboard
Lighting Shade is included in the price as is the gas stove heated iron balls and long tackle plus rests .
Square shaped fluted leg with decorative button and flat bead edged knee panels
Now these boards are a bit special , and this one more so as it is from the Arts & Crafts period and design .
The table can be sold separately for £500 and the score board for £600 , or both for £1000 .
and as a gesture the owner will throw in a nice set of framed period rules .
the score board is a 10 player life pool and billiards board and has 6 ivory buttons missing but overall is in very good order , I am sure you could locate 6 buttons from a collector or billiards firm .
or buy an old bone ball and have some made on lathe .
the arts and crafts carved design of the closed door fronts to this board make it unique and collectable
Be a shame to separate it from the table , but these boards are in demand .
if the table is sold first then the board can go after .
but the buyer of the table gets first refusal of the score board .
Ivory name plate on the table has King George V as monarch , reign from 1910 to 1936 .
a good way to date a table if you have no original sales receipt is the end name plate on the cushions
most carry the time period of the Reigning monarch .
Sadly we live in a time where the board is worth more than the table , but we have priced these items at a very reasonable costing ,
this reflects the sale s prices currently fetching around the UK for S/H tables and equipment .
A good time to buy is right now .
a nice set of framed period Billiards rules , could do with a new antique effect glass in the front .
these are included if you buy both the table and the score board .
but if not then this set of rules is £50 .
Table is located near Bamford , Manchester .
Cost of removal and collection is down to buyer , the table is on GROUND FLOOR , so no stairs to get down with the heavy slates .
