Mobile wood burner repair

Does anyone know of any wood burner repairers who can house visit. I need a backplate re-welded and the catch on the main doors has snapped but still closes. Thanks

Golf course suited to novices

Can anyone suggest a course in the Coin/Alahurin area suitable for beginners, something not too hilly but a bit of a test.

We do not want to go back oil fired or gas central heating as we are quite ...

Re: Bes t PAYG mobile rates

We tried to make a call and our phone said that our account was no longer valid. We went to the vodaphone shop in La Trocha, Coin and they told us that the time limit was now 3 months not 6. If it was still 6 months then our phone should have worked as we were within the time limit. They also called...

Re: Bes t PAYG mobile rates

Re: Bye bye Sky?

Until last week I had been able to view a limited amount of SKY FTA channnels but it has suddenly went off. My Sky boz still shows a red light but will not switch on. Does anyone think that the box is merely packed in or have SKY switched completely

Has anyone used the firm SKY DOCTOR? Thinking of getting IPTV through them. Their website looks good and they seem to know what they are about but looks can be deceiving.

Re: auto watering systems

I have a TORO automatic mains supplied water system, probably brought from UK, which seems to work whenever it wants then sometimes does not work at all. Anyone know of good irrigation engineers/mechanics or should I revert to a cheaper version of the same. I can buy one in UK for approx £90

Thanks for your advice on this. Yes the leaves do curl up and they also turn yellow. What is the name of this supplement for trees, please?
