Request: Bicycle wheels (Llanbister) Withdrawn - I'm still looking for front and rear alloy - not chromed - 27 inch wheels to help restore an old and interesting racing bike. With or without Derailleur. OK if needs cleaning up. Thank you. MODERATOR NOTE As we have members on both sides of the Wales/England border, please be aware of and comply with current English and Welsh Coronavirus restrictions Offer: Suspended ceiling (Llanbister) - This is more by way of seeking if there is any interest, rather a definite giveaway at the moment. I am considering removing part of suspended ceiling, approx. 11feet x 10ft6. Includes 3 triple fluorescent light fittings, all working. Tiles are mostly intact, evidently fire resistant, I do not know what material they are made of but think the ceiling was installed in the 1990s. Metal framing. If I do decide to remove it, the taker must be available to help dismantle and take away on the spot, Let me know if of interest.

Request: Bicycle wheels (Llanbister) Withdrawn - I'm looking for front and rear alloy - not chromed - 27 inch wheels to help restore an old and interesting racing bike. With or without Derailleur. Thank you. Offer: Cold frame? (half a door) (Llanbister) Gifted - Half a door! This might do for a cold frame or building into a shed. I have just removed an old semi-glazed front door and cut off the bottom half as pretty rotten but the top is not too bad (see photo but handle not included!) - all the 6 square panes of glass are intact and seems a shame to waste by taking to the tip. Measures approx 52 high x 32 inches wide. Reposted as need it out of harm's way before glass gets broken. MODERATOR NOTE: IN LINE WITH WELSH GOVERNMENT POLICY PLEASE REFRAIN FROM JOURNEYS WITHIN WALES OR ACROSS THE BORDER UNTIL THE ‘FIREBREAK’ ENDS. THANK YOU.

Offer: Cold frame? (half a door) (Llanbister) Gifted - Might get this week's prize for weirdest post - half a door! This might do for a cold frame or building into a shed. I have just removed an old semi-glazed front door. The bottom half is pretty rotten but the top is not too bad - all the 6 square panes of glass are intact and seems a shame to waste by taking to the tip. If I cut it so as to keep sound wood on the lower side, it will measure approx 52 high x 32 inches wide. Offer: shop shelves (Llanbister) Gifted - SHOP SHELVES - FREE! Random pieces of adjustable, very strong steel shop shelving system (ex-Sub Post Office): assorted shelves and brackets of different widths, 6ft+ uprights, edge trim/priceholder strips, etc. See photo for a sample (there is a lot more). I can't guarantee that you can make up every piece into a complete unit so you might need to track down the maker for replacements if necessary. FREE to anyone who can make good use of it - community project, workshop or if you are defying the state of the economy, even a shop! NOT splitting - must take all. 'Fair Offer' policy applies, giving reasonable time for responses and evaluating requests. Also posted to a Llandrindod sell/swap Facebook page.

Offer: Work trousers (llandrindod wells) Gifted - Might seem bit of an odd thing to offer! Pair of 'Tuffstuff' work trousers, 32 waist and short leg, with more pockets than a snooker table. Slightly paint-splattered, worn very few times but washed and clean. They never felt right as the legs are too short for me . Thought better to go on TrashNothing rather than charity shop as its qualities might be overlooked because of the paint!
