Perhaps he doesn’t like you . If you have ever tried to knock him down on price he won’t like it and will remember .
Probably ,when bidding against him at Caenby Corner as kid it was very interesting as you could see he had a price he would go to and no more. If you ask what price for something in the field he will have to go to the house and find out when he bought and for how much before he can give a price. No I meant no offense he’s definitely a character.

He is a character alright but I really get on well with him but I know many who don’t . I never argue on price and sometimes don’t even ask as I know I won’t find whatever it is cheaper . Places like his are getting few and far between .

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
