There's not a lot can be done in all honesty. They can be improved a little by ensuring the plastic is clean and then applying a plastic dressing such as Aerospace 303. SOme people swear by stuff like peanut butter, but the improvement there comes from the oil within it and this re-hydrates the plastic a little.

The best results I have achieved are with some Meguiars trim dressing and a hot air paint stripper. Clean the plastic, apply the dressing and heat gently. This just starts the surface of the plastic melting a bit and the dressing them amalgamates with it. DO NOT get it too hot, it's a very delicate balancing act.

If my car is sorted when I get back from France on 31st, can I blag the polisher?

As far as I know Andy has it, so might be sensible to go to Garry then Dave?

I'm in no massive rush especially as I'm in the middle of moving house!
Perhaps its best to arrange to get it to a MAM (which I can now make as the wife no longer works Monday evenings) and I can pick it up from there?

If Andy can bring it to the SAM tonight I can probably bring it, or if not Mark probably can.

The big problem with that plan is Andy! I did txt him at 8am to remind him about the SAM tonight.
