Looking for tall bookcase

I'm after a bookcase or similar set of shelves for my workroom.  Needs to be at least 1200, ideally 1800mm high, 300mm deep (to hold paper supplies).   Width quite negotiable as long as it can be transported.

Condition unimportant as long as it's sturdy (to hold heavy books and paper).  Timber preferred but I am open to options.   Paintwork etc doesn't matter - I can always spruce up something that is scratched or stained.

Catchup Hosts

We are always looking for Catchup Hosts. 

For those who haven't yet been to a catchup, these are low key affairs in a member's home or venue they have arranged.  Usually its on the first Wednesday of the month from 10am-noon, but this is flexible if the host prefers a different day and time.  Members bring along goods to trade and there's time to sit and chat (unlike markets which are often rather busy and noisy).  All the host needs to provide is somewhere to sit and put the kettle on for a cuppa.  Members bring a plate of something to share for morning tea.  Hosts sometimes choose to have a shared lunch or offer to cater lunch for a small unit charge - its all flexible.

Its a great way to meet and get to know fellow members.  Quite often this leads to trading which you hadn't even thought about. 

Do let us know if you'd like to put your hand up.

Collecting berries of Malabar spinach

Take part in a great research project for a new food. I am aiming to collect as many dried Malabar spinach berries as possible this autumn. This is for a Polish chemist in Krakow who is analysing the betacyanins in the purple berries to assess their nutritional value - they may be a new super food. If you are growing Malabar spinach all that is needed is for you to pick the berries when they are purple and dry them in the sun or in a dehydrator. You can either give them to me at the OPM or post them to me at 42 Essex Street Goodwood 5034. I am happy to pay units for this.
