Offer: Large tent (Govanhill G42) Gifted - Land Trekka tent - given to us by my father in law who got it from a car boot, I don't have time to set it up so not sure how big it is or if all the pegs/poles are present and correct or if there are any holes. It is very big though so I think at least 4/6 person and has two separate compartments. It is quite dirty and there are some mouldy patches on the inner fabric so needs a good clean and airing. There is no carry case for it but I will roll it and tie it up with something. In your reply please suggest a date and specific time for collection - we can be around most of the time. Thanks.

Offer: Table and chairs (Govanhill G42) - Glass top table and four chairs. The glass is 122 cm (48") x 76 cm (30") and comes off for easy transport. The frame of the table is off white painted metal and also comes apart for transport. The height of the table is 77 cm (30.5"). The chairs are all held together in some way by odd screws so they're all a bit wobbly and I would recommend tightening the screws or getting new ones. The fabric on the chairs is a bit grubby but I would imagine it could be cleaned. Collection from Govanhill ideally within the next week. Thanks
