Hi, coddy! I have seen one of these recently but can't remember where, have you tried Homebase? (only I think that's the only shop I've been to recently that might have had one)

Janh Mon 20-Jun-05 14:58:51

Found this one - doesn't tilt but does pack up small - very handy (you never know when you might need one!)

ta jan will look

aloadoffishyballs Mon 20-Jun-05 16:13:20

is this one?

Janh Mon 20-Jun-05 17:05:32

Um - I think that's a garden parasol, it's nearly 6' high - beach ones are usually shorter aren't they? (Mind you garden ones are usually higher...dunnooooooo)

Try ringing - this stuff has quite a short season and probably doesn't even get on the website.

what about towsure?

or one of those shops on the seafront? they have loads

Janh Mon 20-Jun-05 17:07:58

Focus have a beach one and it is 1.8m high too. (But the Homebase one says water repellent, would you want that on the beach???)

Hello fio

Fio2 Mon 20-Jun-05 17:11:09

hello jan, whilst someone is listening to me, how much do playschemes usually cost? my thread has died with no posts on it

Janh Mon 20-Jun-05 17:14:02

Awww, sweetheart - have you bumped it much?

Um - it's how long is a piece of string for playschemes - depends who operates and how much they're subsidised (if at all) etc. Watford, for instance, has a fab one for about 2p a day (not really) and other councils charge much more. Where do you want one? Lovely Margate, where you live ?

Fio2 Mon 20-Jun-05 17:21:05

I dont live in Margate Jan, i live in Hernia bay no the one we have been offered is in canterbury but its 8 pound a day and the one more local to me is 10 pound a day
