I just thought I would let members know that you can purchase a box of 100 pairs of  disposable gloves for just under £5.00 from Gloves for Less dot com.  That price  includes V.A.T. and delivery costs.
I think it's an extremely good deal.  Prior to this I found I was having to pay on average. about £8.00.

FDPW Members exhibiting

Exhibiting at The Line Gallery in Linlithgow from October 1st to the 25th are our very own Susan Smith who I believe lives over that way , Catherine King, Sheila Carnduff and Clare Yarrington.  I really like their web set up .  Very personal and just friendly.  It is peculiar because I used to live in Linlithgow when we first landed in Scotland and had not really been aware of this gallery.
