Request: Check Your Spam Emails (Ubley) 15d - Just a polite message to remind people to check their personal email spam/junk boxes and sign up to push notifications to make sure you get your messages. I’ve had 5 people (all new to Freecycle) fail to respond to wanted items in the past week. Happy Freecycling everyone 😊 Offer: Lynx Set - Unwanted Gift (Ubley) 15d - 2 brand new & unused lynx sprays.
Offer: Tile Backer Board & Screws (Ubley) Gifted 15d - 2 and a half pieces of tile backer boards. Left over from when we installed our bathroom floor. Also an entire box of screws with washers (we were sold these with the boards, so passing them on with the boards too). Board size is 120cm x 60cm and 6mm thick.
Offer: Wellies (Sizes 8 , 5 & Childs 7) (Ubley) 15d - The pink sparklies are childs size 7. They were used frequently, but our daughter outgrew them so quickly and they still have lots of life left in them - we bought these from new. The vibrant green are size 5 and dark ‘Dickies’ wellies are size 8. We found these inside the greenhouse that was in our garden. The greenhouse wasn’t visible or accessible because of the elderflower trees that were growing out of it, so I don’t know how long these would have been in there, but they both look practically new. The small green pair even has its price label still inside. They are a little bit cobwebby, but nothing that a vacuum nozzle couldn’t handle.
Offer: Faux Leather & Diamanté Headboard (Ubley) 15d - Headboard for a double bed, has 1 or 2 minor imperfections. We bought this new 5 years ago, but hasn’t been used for 2 (as it’s been in storage while moving into our new home) we no longer need it, and wondered if anyone would like it as it seems a waste to take it to the tip.

Offer: Ceramic Toilet (Ubley) Gifted 17d - Toilet that we removed from our house when we first bought it. It will need a new flush system, as the old one was broken during removal, but that’s good because then you won’t need the overflow hole, as most modern ones have an overflow built in that discharges into pan. This is just the cistern and the toilet, I don’t have the connecting bolts to join the two, but these can be picked up easily. There are a couple of marks on it though (pictured) some grey in the pan and a small area of brown at the front. It has been stored outside for a while, but I have given it a scrub down, although the pan could maybe do with some bleaching to remove old limescale marks.

Offer: Small Water Feature Pump (Ubley) Gifted 22d - I assume that this was originally inside the water feature / pond lining that is also listed, as I found it in close proximity in our garden. I unfortunately don’t know if this works as it was disconnected when I found it. Please let me know if you need any more details or pictures. Thanks

Offer: Pond / Water Feature (Ubley) Gifted 22d - Black plastic pond liner/ liner for a water feature. It has a plastic lid that covers the hole, so I assume you’d put a water pump underneath the lid for a decorative garden feature. It was unrecognisable when we discovered it, all over grown with brambles. But there was lots of shingle around it and the remainders of a pump nearby. Thanks

Offer: Garden Ornaments/ Items & Firepit? (Ubley, BS40 6) Gifted 22d - Various garden ornaments, some are missing heads, presumably where the previous owners too a strimmer to the very over grown garden at some point. Also a very old, small washing machine drum, maybe useful as a small fire pit for someone or a large flowerpot if holes were drilled in the bottom. Happy to provide more pictures if needed. Any questions please ask.

Offer: Cot Mattress (Ubley, BS40 6) Withdrawn 23d - Wondered if any one is in need of a cot mattress before I take it to the tip next weekend. It has a waterproof, removable mattress protector that is machine washable. We bought it new for my daughter in 2016, but she has just got a new bed which needed a bigger mattress. There are some markings on the back of the mattress which are from the wooden slats in her cot.

Offer: Metal Roofing / Sheets x5 (photos) (Ubley, BS40 6) Withdrawn 27d - I found these buried, actually physically buried under earth 🤨 in our garden! The ones closest to the top seem to have suffered the worst, but wondered if anyone could use these? Collection from Ubley, Somerset.

The ones closest to the top seem to have suffered the worst, but wondered if anyone could use these? Collection from Ubley, Somerset. Offer: Stone Blocks / Bricks (Ubley, BS40 6) Gifted 27d - Lots of stone blocks and bricks from when we removed our porch. Some were broken during removal and most still have cement on, but seems to come off OK. A variety of sizes and more to follow when we remove another outdoor wall this weekend.

Offer: Tiles (Ubley, BS40 6) 27d - Chicken vein tiles. I think about 50 in total, they have the image of a chick in them. Still grout on the sides and back, could do with a bit of clean before being used again. I’ve kept some to make a small splash back, but the house we just bought had them everywhere! Take as many as you want, seems a shame to tip them. Thanks
Offer: Metal Handrail (Ubley) Withdrawn 27d - Large metal hand rail, already removed. Had been offered before lockdown, but they are no longer responding to messages? Available for collection from Ubley. It’s in 1 very long piece!
Offer: Concrete Slabs (Ubley) Gifted 27d - A mixture of sizes, all 60cm width, some have a length of 60cm, some 90cm, some 45, some cut down to 10cm. I think there are a total of 19 60cm x 60cm, 2 90cm and several more that are cut down, but they have been bread under years worth of soil and plants. Collector to lift the slabs, and you’ll want help because they weigh a tonne! All others that we’ve lifted have come up very easily though. Thanks Ellen
Offer: Stone Blocks (Ubley) Gifted 27d - Stone blocks removed from a low decorative wall in our garden. They do have some cement left around the edges though, but maybe useful to someone? More of these available if needed. Collection from Ubley, please. Thanks
Offer: Greenhouse & Garden Items (Ubley) Withdrawn 27d - These were all buried in a greenhouse, that was buried under 4 trees that had grown through it! All of these were left by the previous owners, wondering if they can be of any help to anyone? Some flower grow bags (I assume they are like tomato grow bags). Lots of little colourful metal wires, not sure what the purpose of these are. 3 tired looking hanging baskets too. Collection from Ubley. Please see my other posts too. Thanks

Offer: Stone / Block Wall (Ubley) Withdrawn 29d - Stone Faced Blocks / Wall - collector to demolish. This wall has to be removed before our driveway is started on the 1st of July. I think these blocks are stone faced, with a sort of breeze block half at the back (like the one pictured), but I think some blocks are going to be solid stone, as also pictured - unfortunately until it starts to be taken apart we just don’t know. The back side of the wall is rendered and has 2 large pillars. Good news is we have lots of solid stones too if those are wanted as well. Any questions, please ask.

Offer: White Sink & Pedestal (Ubley) Gifted 34d - White ceramic sink. In really good condition, apart from the cobwebs. No cracks or dink’s. We removed it from our house when we moved in. I’ve taken out the plug hole because that was pretty rusty (so you’ll probably want to buy a new waste plug hole). I’ve still got old one if you want it though. I’ve included a picture of the underneath to show that there is no sign of rust around the nuts on the taps, so if you wanted to change them, they should come out easily too. Check out my other items too.

Offer: White & Green Vein Tiles (Ubley) Withdrawn 37d - Lots of small white tiles, with avocado green ‘veins’ through them. I removed them from our house when we moved in, most still have adhesive on the back. Thanks for looking, feel free to have a look at my other listings too Offer: Various Metal Poles - Some scaffold (Ubley) Withdrawn 39d - 4 different lengths of metal poles. One is very rusty with a little foot on the bottom and a loop around the top (matching ones to this are concreted in our garden for use as washing line poles) The longest pole is a scaffolding pole. If your interested in the pole with the loop at the top, we’ve got 3 more that will be available soon, sadly the foot is to cemented in to use, but you could still use the poles, once we’ve got them out (we’d be happy for you to take an angle grinder to them if you wanted, to leave the cement blocks behind). Collection from Ubley.

Offer: Garage Cupboards (Ubley) Gifted 39d - Garage cupboards, I think ex-kitchen wall units. The plastic vinyl cover is starting to peel off some of the shelves and they could do with a good clean, but structurally they are sound and would suit a garage or shed for storage. Collection only from Ubley. Thanks

Offer: Various Metal Poles - Some scaffold (Ubley) Gifted 46d - 5 different lengths of metal poles. One is very rusty with a little foot on the bottom and a loop around the top (matching ones to this are concreted in our garden for use as washing line poles) The longest pole and 180cm length are scaffolding poles. If your interested in the pole with the loop at the top, we’ve got 3 more that will be available soon, sadly the foot is to cemented in to use, but you could still use the poles, once we’ve got them out (we’d be happy for you to take an angle grinder to them if you wanted, to leave the cement blocks behind). Collection from Ubley.

Offer: Large Toy / Dolls House (Ubley) Withdrawn 47d - Large pink, cream plastic dolls house. This was given to us by a neighbour for our daughter to have, I cleaned it up with the intention of giving a lick of acrylic paint to spruce it up, but my daughter is not interested in it, and we have lots of other projects on the go, so I wondered if someone else might be able to find a home for it. From what I can tell it has lived a long life outside, so some of the plastic is faded, but it all still seems nice a sturdy. The main noticeable messy areas are the stick on rugs on the different levels. But I’m sure these could be covered with some glued down fabric, or contact adhesive paper. Will leave out for a contact free collection when a date and time is agreed. Thanks Ellen

Offer: Electric Towel Rail (Ubley) Gifted 48d - This had been asked for by someone, but they are not responding to messages - remember to check your messages to get your items everyone 😁 Electric towel rail, left in our house from the previous owners. We uninstalled it from the property and put it in the garage which we’re now emptying. I think it works, but can’t guarantee it. Collection only from Ubley. Have a look at our other offers too. Thanks

Offer: Garage / Shed shelving (Ubley) Gifted 48d - These had been asked for by someone, but they are not responding to messages - remember to check your messages to get your items everyone 😁 2 sets of wooden shelves from our garage. 1 set is ready to be used again straight away. The smaller set would need to have its shelves replaced, but, Good News. . . we have plenty of pieces of wood that could be used to replace the flimsy existing shelves. There are woodwork holes present, that’s why I’ve said they’re only suitable for shed use. Any questions please ask. Have a look at my other offers too. Will be complying with social distancing when collection is arranged. Thanks

Offer: The Great Garage Emptying (Ubley) Gifted 49d - We’re emptying our garage/shed and their is a lot of things that we have sorted out that we don’t want or need as they were all left behind by the previous owners. First up here we have LOADS of (a shed load - ha ha) of nails. There’s also a few hinges, door locks, keys and a variety of other things. I hope I’ve pictured everything clearly enough. All the nails look a little bit rusty, I’m assuming that’s due to age as the boxes all look fairly old. The locks are pretty knackered apart from one that still comes with its keys. But the others might be good for craft projects? Any questions please ask. Have a look at my other offers too. Will be complying with social distancing when collection is arranged. Thanks
Offer: Electric Radiator (Ubley) Gifted 49d - Electric radiator, don’t know if it works because we removed it before we used it. It’s been stored in our garage since we took it out, but we are emptying that out now. Collection only from Ubley. Have a look at our other offers too. Thanks
