    Hi again - just to clarify. Any date between Tuesday 16th Jan to Friday 19th Jan. I meant to say perhaps go for something in the middle like Wednesday 17th January (not 20th as mentioned originally) and in the evening because of possible work commitments for people. Again, we can go with the flow of interest. Once we've got people confirmed I'll sort out a venue. Hope that's OK with everyone.
    Cheers

    It's taken us 8 weeks to locate the scaffolder that Mark Jackson of Geo build sub contracted. Sure enough he hasn't been paid for several jobs either!
    Hopefully our new builder will beable to start January to start putting right the mess Mark Jackson left us in!

    Hello again everybody. We haven't had a response to our previous post so we are firming up the date of the meeting to Wednesday 17th January at 7:00PM. We hope this is convenient for everyone. We are happy to host the meeting at The Hayes, 19 Newport Road Stafford ST16 1BA (parking available). This is next door to Footsteps nursery and more or less across the Road from Vets 4 Pets. All welcome and hope to see as many of you as possible there. Joe and Angela.

    UPDATE - Just to let you know that one of Mark Jackson's ex-contractors will be coming to the meeting on 17th (someone else that hasn't been paid for his services by Mark) and he is arranging for someone from the Express and Star to come as well.

    A short-URL to this thread as a letter through their door is probably poor taste, right?

    I saw them there yesterday.

    To be honest, I thought exactly the same thing.

    And the page will be taken down very quickly for impersonation.

    It needs to be clear it is a page about them being cowboys, not trying to impersonate them

    Thanks for your concern, that’s my house you are talking about. I read this thread before work was agreed, I was told about it. He completed an extensive internal refurb and extension for me 3 years ago to a very high standard to architects plans and signed off by a independent building control company. So had no issues hiring him again.

    I hope it goes well for you. Obviously you have previous good experience of Geo Build so you can only judge by that.

    Well Geo build used to be a good company three years ago!
    That’s why we used them, good reviews off his family and friends. Then Marks couldn’t care less attitude came along and like everyone on the forum received an extremely poor job. Poor time keeping ( if they bothered to turn up) Poor workmanship and contractors constantly swearing and moaning about Mark not paying them.
    We too had our work signed off by building regs only to find no membrane had been put in place. We only found this when our floor was dug up by an independent company. We had mould growing under our floor boards!!
    We have spent in excess of £12,000 so far correcting Mark Jackson of Geo Builds “work.” Please don’t be fooled by him and all his promises. He had known our family for years, we had been to his home and he was a neighbour ( before his poor wife had the sense to kick him out).
    Well you can only warn some people- this isn’t one families opinion, there are lots of families who have all been lied and cheated by this man. Be VERY careful using him.

    Couldn't agree more, Mark Jackson only cares about where his next payment is coming from, he honestly couldn't care less about the project management, order or quality of work, don't be fooled by his gift of the gab! We had days on end where no one would turn up, sometimes they would arrive just to take materials from our job to take elsewhere! The longest we went without seeing anyone was 3 weeks! We are thousands out of pocket, having to pay someone else to redo work. If anyone continues to keep this cowboy in business, more fool them, what about the sub contractors who come and do some work in good faith and never get paid? So many families have been affected, disgusting and he will be shut down!

    I cannot understand how anybody would employ this conman. He has obviously lied and cheated so many people out of their savings. Promises of a reliable service are all over his website but they are pictures of his estranged wife's home and his sisters house. I have heard numerous accounts of dangerous and poor work done by this company, stories of substandard jobs done by his subcontractors, Jason and Simon Barnes and one family having workmen defecating and urinating in their garden as Mark failed on his promise of a portaloo. Why would anybody in their right mind employ such a disgusting character???

    Out of curiosity, how many people have said that they are coming to the meeting on Wednesday and has everyone that replied to this thread that was affected by Mark Jackson been sent a PM?
