  1. I've found some bricks which look identical on the Jewsons website. Do Jewsons sell to the public and will I be able to buy such a small quantity or will they not want to deal with me?
  2. I'm looking for a small number (about 10) bricks to patch up some damage to a garden wall. The closest match I can find online are called Ibstock Throckley Mixed Buff Rustic Brick https://www.buildbase.co.uk/ibstock-65mm-throckley-mixed-100010352-280083 Does anyone know where I might be able to obtain some of these locally
  3. I'm looking for some recommendations for home CCTV in the Sheffield region. I need some advice on what exactly I need but my expectation is 4-5 cameras and I'd like a decent 5K or 8K IP based system from someone like Hikvision. Can anyone recommend any local installers?
  4. I have a Roland LX17 (digital, but upright style / size) piano which I need moving as I'm moving house shortly. It cost around £4500 and is upstairs in my current house, with quite tight stairs, so I'd rather get someone "proper" to move it rather than rely on a removal firm or a man and van service. Does anyone have any recommendations?
  5. Not knowingly but I guess it's possible I clicked it by accident last time I was logged in. I logged in just now to see if it was back yet and was pleasantly surprised to see the banner gone, but never mind
  6. I notice that the banner at the top, which said Classifieds was currently unavailable, has been taken away. However, the Classifieds sections do not seem to have been reinstated. Can anyone advise what is happening?
  7. Shape Seating have a showroom in Bakewell with a fantastic range of office chairs. You need to make an appointment to visit but they will spare you all the time you need to make sure you find the right product for your needs. I couldn't recommend them enough.
  8. Well... I'm not a big fan of Sony or of bridge cameras, but must admit the RX10 III looks a lovely bit of kit! And seems to have excellent reviews to match! I would definitely echo what blue9iron says - get yourself to Harrisons and make sure you're certain what type of camera you want. Even if you don't understand enough to choose a particular model or even a brand, at least figure out whether you want an SLR, a bridge camera or a compact... My preference would always be SLR but I accept they can be cumbersome, too big/heavy for some people to manage, or simply too complex for you to want to learn. Equally it can be tempting to think you want a nice compact camera because you can take it everywhere, but then find them to be fiddly and confusing to use as settings are sometimes hidden behind complex menus rather than just having a button for it! Bridge cameras can be a good compromise and the RX10 III definitely looks like one of the best out there... for me the deciding factor is what feels most comfortable to use and be sure it won't be a hindrance to taking it out with you. Harrisons are exceptionally helpful, especially if you can go mid week when it's quieter they will spare all the time you need to make sure you understand what you want or need. They'll let you play with as many cameras as you want for as long as you want, and won't try to pressure you into a sale. Even if you don't buy anything or after their advice you decide your choice is something they don't actually sell, it'd be worth your time calling in
  9. One thing to consider if you're looking at hollow rather than solid doors, is you're unlikely to be able to trim 6'6 (1982mm) down to 1900mm vertically
  10. I'm looking to have a 2-bed semi detached house repointed. Can anyone either: 1) recommend anyone to do the job 2) give me any indication of a price - I accept every job is different but if anyone has had a 2 or 3-bed semi detached or a terraced/town house it'd give me a ballpark expectation
  11. When it started the plans were for an Aldi, Costa Coffee, Home Bargains and a Frankie & Benny's. Not sure if any of that has changed since.
  12. I have a large amount of soil to get rid of and a skip is probably going to be the only feasible way. Does anyone know of a skip hire company in Sheffield / Rotherham that offers discounted rates for just soil?
  13. I'm in the process of levelling my garden and have a load of soil available to anyone who can collect. If anyone is interested, please get in touch.
  14. I'm in S26 and have a load of soil available to anyone who is able to collect, as I'm in the process of levelling the garden.
  15. I'm after someone to dig up my front lawn, roughly 6m x 4m, to a depth of about 2 inches as I want to lay gravel. I may have other jobs in the future so someone local to S26 would be preferred, but any recommendations welcome.
