  1. Looking for a good local kitchen fitter/carpenter to refit a small kitchen. Any recommendations appreciated!

  2. Hi. Does anyone have any electrician recomendations? Many thanks

    1. I am afraid that, so far, no-one has recommended an electrician which is why one is not listed. Once you find one whose work you would recommend, perhaps you would like to have him or her added to our Trusted Tradesmen list. The (simple) procedure is explained at the head of the table.

  3. Has anyone used the tradesmen to repair external render? My house has started to leak again. Thanks
