Keeping the North East posts alive Nibs, we should post in this section more often.

Re: Bongo friendly garages in Yorkshire and the North East

Hello all!

I'm looking for a Bongo Friendly place in Barnsley (and around).
We have a nice little garage in Hoyland, however, they're not Bongo 'specialists', and now we need the head gasket to be replaced and there are some electrical issues all around, we 'd like to have it looked at and fixed by a reliable guy/gal (no reason to be sexist! :D ) who knows his/her Bongos. More than fed up with the troubles it gave us so far, so ready for a good proper fix!

There is supposed to be 'a guy' somewhere around Barnsley Hospital Area, but cannot retrace this tip?

Anyone?

Thanks in advance!

(yes, I have found http://www.doreservicestation.co.uk/, but was wondering about anyone a bit closer! Ta!)

Just used this garage to sort out my broken heater. Feared I would need a new fan motor/resister but they thankfully repaired the motor at a cost of £63.

Does anyone know a good garage in the north east of England for sorting out my Bongo's AFT roof which is jammed shut. I'm in the Alnwick area but could travel a reasonable way for someone good (Northumberland Scottish Borders, Tyne and Wear, Co Durham). I've heard about the garage in Cramlington from this forum which isn't too far from me, would they be good for AFT issues? Thanks.

Ring Tony Chrisp at Derwenthaugh Motors 07596862711, he's doing a lot of Bongo work for us North east bongo owners.
Also Bongo Barn at Stocksfield may be able to help mention Stu Coates as contact.

Thanks Stu, I'll try those. For everyone's information, I tried Bridge Garage in Cramlington and they don't do Bongo roofs. He said they used to but they stopped because they were too fiddly and not worth their while.
