HOW TO PURCHASE A SPOKES MAPP BUFF
Update: purchases after Christmas
Collect & buy: After Christmas some of the sales-points under (2) below may still have buffs available, price £10 payable on collection.
If South Edinburgh is convenient the best contact for ‘collect and buy’ from December 29 onwards is judy.cantleyATbtinternet.com, phone 447 7108.
Orders by post: please send a cheque for £12 payable to Spokes – this includes postage.
If possible, please buy your buff(s) from one of our volunteer sales points, as below. If you do this, the cost is £10. Please bring exact payment with you – we may not have change. You will be given a receipt. If you want the buff before Christmas, please make your purchase by Weds 21 December at the latest, so as not to bother our volunteers in the last few days.
If you cannot buy/collect as above, and would like your buff posted please send a cheque for £12 payable to Spokes – this includes postage. If you buy by post we cannot guarantee that it will reach you by Christmas – we are all volunteers and may not be able to deal with post sufficiently in the second half of December.

WHY IS IT THE SPOKES MAPP BUFF?
- Why not?
- Because it’s got a Spokes map part, or should that be mapp art?
- Because Mapp and Buff are both consonant, vowel, repeated-consonant, so they look good together.
- Because it Makes A Perfect Present [as mentioned in the heading of this article – did you notice?]
