Title: GrowsterBank pound coins...
Post by: Growster... on September 30, 2017, 09:53
Please note that as the last day for using the old pound coins is in two weeks time, GrowsterBank Ltd is recalling all these early to beat the rush.

Please send all your old pound coins to: -

M.P.Growster Esq.,
Chief Cashier,
GrowsterBank Ltd.,
High St,
Hawkhurst,
Kent.

Thank you.

Too late Mr G.  Even swapped them out on the grandkids piggy banks.  :D

I hope they were the real thing, Auntie...

(I had several forgeries in my pocket at the same time, one was a gold painted lump of metal and even I spotted it...! The parking meter did too...)!

Hello MPG Esq. Having raided an old piggy-bank, various handbags, purses, wallets, backs of drawers (no - I wasn't in them at the time), and down every cushioned chair and sofa, I have the grand sum of one which I am more than happy to deposit in your bank. Please will you send me your account details etc so I can get it to you before the expiry date.
May I also add that whilst searching in these hidden places, I found some old groats and am told on good authority (Gezundheist bank, Switzerland) that they are rather rare. If anyone out there has any, I am prepared to buy them off you at a reasonable price. Postage and packing is free as long as you agree to the terms and conditions as stated on the website www.goosejet.hi/five including "we are not responsible for any delays or failures to deliver, including those that are due to alien spacecraft, pigeon-fanciers' disease, road-works on the M6 and, if anyone is on holiday at the time of delivery, bad luck!

I had far too many to pop in the post Growster, so I thought I'd have a quick drive to Hawkhurst (completely forgetting that it was a Saturday, and the bank was probably closed) - what a lovely place it is!  :)

Sadly, I don't own a Sat Nav, so I was unable to find the bank.... ::)

As luck would have it, an old chap with a wheelbarrow said that he knew you well, and allowed me to load the coins into his barrow (which took a while).  I do hope that he hasn't done himself a mischief delivering them?

Looking forward to receiving my cheque in the post.
