Wickes with the trade account is good,the only problem is they dont do 8x3 plasterboards and im not maulling 8x4 boards on my own in the van so i go to a buliders merchant to get them to load it.

8x3 . There’s a throw back . I can remember we used to dab new builds with them in 9.5mm . Thought they were obsolete
