Not a very interesting topic I know, but I thought I'd post it bearing in mind the suspension of quarter referbishment in the next financial year due to the SDSR. Having just found the AFF Journal on the coffee table at work I gave it a quick read (sad I know) and discovered this nugget of information: Quoted cost of carpet replacement for a quarter £43.50 per sq m. http://www.aff.org.uk/linkedfiles/aff/families_journal/armyfamiliesjournalissue84-autumn2011.pdf Now seeing as the carpets in all the quarters I've had have been of crap quality who dreamt this price up? Cheapest I found after a very quick search was £8.16 per sq m. Beige Tufted Heritage Thames Twist | Carpetright Now by my thinking I could recarpet 4 quarters for the price of 1. Do I get a GEMS award for this? or ridicule for being a sad twat.
