Offer: Leaky hose (Fulbourn CB21) - About 15 m watering hose. Feed it around your greenhouse, flower or vegetable bed, connect to a proper hose. When you turn on the tap, it leaks gently all the way along to water everywhere at once. This one is old and may have an extra leak or two. If you need the end fitting as well, I'll look out a new O ring seal for it. Watch your water meter bill, too, because it is easy to overdo the nearly automatic watering!

Request: Hook or sickle (Oakington CB24) - Hi - I do some voluntary work around our village cutting back hedges and things and an old fashioned hook or sickle would be really useful. Any condition as long as it has a sound handle would be OK as I can sharpen it myself. Thanks Graham Offer: Light bulbs (Fulbourn CB21) - Six obsolete unused energy-hungry light bulbs. There's a 100W reflector lamp; a 150W conventional lamp; two 100W conventional lamps; and two 100W halogen bulbs "129W equivalent." All are bayonet BC or B22 base and mains voltage. More suitable for a museum item or something you don't switch on much, because they are so much less efficient than any modern energy-efficient lamp. Happy to split if you want only some.
