    Any suggestions for plasterers/ general builders in the SE5 area (Brixton/Oval end) gratefully received

    We are in need of someone to do some plastering in the bathroom - not a major job, (I hope) just a repair to existing plaster where water from the bath has seeped through and then some retiling. We also want to investigate installing an extraction fan to hopefully prevent future mould

    Many thanks

    Any recommendations for an electrician in the Brixton area? I'm looking to put in some bathroom lights and an extractor fan and apparently these things have to be done officially now (not that I fancy trying to put in the fan myself, I should add :eek: )

    Anyone know of a reliable and reasonable builder,Want to knock out a window and replace it with a door .so I can have a roof garden.

    Had one quote.And was gobsmacked when he said it would cost £ 1.750..

    Think it'll be cheaper to go buy meself a sledge hammer and do job myself .

    Brixton Hatter Home is south London mate

    It's worth being careful with plumbers and only using one a mate has personally recommended from experience. The Corgi rating means nothing really - any old jobsworth can get a corgi rating and there's plenty of corgi-registered pirates out there....

    Snails and Nails

    Don't quite get how giant snails are in this thread BUT as they are:

    Can't help but admit that when I saw them I was slightly shocked. Not because of snails per se but because of the way they are kept and handled. Shouldn't be allowed.

    Not sure if I'm supposed to post this, but there didn't seem to be any replies to requests for electricians so here goes.

    My missus is a qualified spark - covering the Brixton, Streatham, Clapham, Tulse Hill etc area. Obviously I am biased, but she's very reliable and does a good job. Estimates for larger jobs are free. If you want to contact her - email or phone 07801 269394.

    She's not working over Christmas and the New year (at my insistence, so she can take a rest!), but she'll be checking messages before starting back at work on 7 Jan.

    Hope this is helpful
