  1. It does a bit, thanks! Although I can't find anything online about Crown Holme Ltd who are mentioned. I guess Broomhill Library is the next port of call...
  2. Thought I'd resurrect this thread. We're also interested if anyone knows anything about who owns this blue building on Ashgate Road. We've spoken to Fable and they don't know anything. We have exciting ideas for what we could do with this building!
  3. I couldn't work out which section to post this under, hope someone looks at this here! I'm looking for a 1930s door for my house and have found this one on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-1930s-front-door-excellent-condition-/171335767270?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Doors_LE&hash=item27e46854e6 My current front door is 815 wide, and this one is listed as 850 wide. My question is, is that too much to trim off this door in your professional opinion? Or would it be alright? The post says the door is of solid construction. Thanks for any advice in advance!
  4. Does anyone know re the Sheffield cats shelter... If adopting a kitten, do they need you to prove you won't leave the kitten unattended for a certain number of hours during the day? Like the rspca does? Ours would be unattended with our older cat from 9-5 as we go to work. I don't want to be disappointed when we go and try to adopt one!
  5. Calling all chicken owners! I'm thinking of getting a few chickens soon to have in my back garden, however I'm wondering about what to do with them when we go away on holidays, or away for the weekend. Id be interested to hear what other chicken owners do when they go away? Its not quite the same as just asking someone to pop in and feed your cat is it? I don't want to get the chickens then realise i have no one to look after them. Any thoughts or advice would be most appreciated, thanks!
  6. I feel bad saying I'm glad to read about all your mishaps, but it does put my failings of my first year of allotmenting into perspective! I thought it was just my inexperience, but it is good to know that it will be that combined with the weather and insane slug population this year. Is enough to put anyone off, but I will endeavour to do better next year. Having said that, I had some lovely early potatoes, lots of broad beans, a good few courgettes and my tomatoes are producing well in the polytunnel :-) As for everything else....
  7. Hi folks, I'm looking to try winemaking for the first time, and was just wondering if anyone had any winemaking equipment they were wanting to get rid of or sell? Just before I fork out on new. Get in touch if so!
  8. Hi all, My boyfriend and I are considering putting an offer in on a property but would need to convert the detached single garage into an office for it to meet our needs. I've just spoken to a local garage conversion company who are asking for £50 to provide a quote, as we don't own the property. This seems a bit steep to me, but maybe I'm being naive. Can anyone recommend a company who will provide us with a free quote to do this work? Thanks Hannah
  9. Been on today, lovely new taps to see, and the water is on! Thanks all for your posts
  10. I presume you are referring to the fact that in all of these locations are other well established chain coffee shops??
  11. Hi! Oh, that's very good news, means something's being done at least. Not got chickens yet...after having our plot broken into and our polytunnel vandalised slightly, I'm a bit concerned re the welfare of the chickens. Seems people just break in to cause destruction for fun.
