Offer: Bags of Hardcore (CT14) - About 20 bags of hardcore - was under slabs that we took up. Would break up nicely to form a base layer for slabs, driveways etc .... or whatever else you want free hardcore for.
Offer: Old Concrete Slabs (CT14) Gifted - We have a pile of about 50 450x450mm old slabs and a whole load of hardcore to give away (about 20 bags). So does anyone need some for under a shed or greenhouse or whatever. They are outside the house so can be collected safely.
Offer: Aluminium Greenhouse (CT16) Gifted - We have bought a property and there is an abandoned greenhouse in the garden. We don't want it so would anyone else ? You will have to dismantle it yourself and take it all away. Maybe an individual or a local community project would like it.

Request: Logs for Mushroom Growing (CT14) - I am going to have a go at growing some edible mushrooms from dowels .... so I need to find some suitable logs to use. The instructions say ... "Logs should be cut from healthy trees during the dormant season. Preferably you should use hard wood logs for mushroom growing - oak, beech, birch, hazel, willow etc; sycamore, apple and ash are not recommended. The log should have a diameter of about 10-15cm." Can anyone help me please ? Are there any tree fellers that would have suitable branches/logs that we could maybe have - as not much use for logs as probably too small as logs for burning Thanks, Gill

Any questions - please ask. Thanks Gill
