Offer: Child’s bike with stabilisers (Ubley) 79d - Child’s bike, in a used condition, but a good sized first bike. Our 4 year old daughter really loved this as her learner bike. Sadly one of the tassels that we added has come off, the seat is faded, 1 peddle is slightly damaged (but that doesn’t affect it) and the chain guard is missing. Hopefully it can bring another child some happiness? All the damaged things are replaceable. Collection from Ubley, BS40
Offer: Kitchen Cupboard Handles (Ubley) Gifted 81d - 17 kitchen cupboard handles, all with screws, but some screws are rusty and bent, so some may need replacing. I bought these off eBay and then we never used them in our kitchen. Contactless collection from Ubley, BS40.

Offer: Packaging Bits & Large Bubble Wrap (Ubley) Gifted 84d - Very large rectangular piece of bubble wrap (129cm x 162cm) and a large black bag full of packaging and protective bits (styrofoam shapes, smaller bits of bubble wrap, brown paper, tissue paper, that weird plastic type sheet stuff and other bits). All clean and freshly unpacked from our items, put in a clean bin bag to prevent my little one making snow angels in the beans and popping all the bubble wrap. Happy to leave out for collection.
Request: Wooden Curtain Rings - BS40 Area (Ubley) Withdrawn 113d - Really sorry for the want. We’re trying to raise some money for a local fundraiser and as part of this are looking for wooden curtain rings. Any number will do, size and colour are not important, but wooden only please, not metal. Any number would be hugely appreciated, and I can collect (preferably after the 2nd of December - as this is not essential). Ideally in the BS40 postcode area please, I live in Ubley, but am happy to travel around a little to collect - every little helps 😊 Thanks very much
Offer: 2 x MDPE 25mm Tube Inserts (Ubley) Withdrawn 144d - 2 x MDPE tube inserts. Designed to fit in 25mm pipe. Contact free collection from Ubley
Offer: White Louvred Wall Vent - New (Ubley) Withdrawn 144d - This one is not in a packet - presumably for external wall. Not sure how I ended up with 2? 100 mm Diameter as well
Offer: External Louvred Wall Vent - NEW (Ubley) Withdrawn 144d - Brand new in packet - still sealed. Bought and never used - 100mm diameter
Offer: Waterproof Laminate Flooring (Ubley) Gifted 154d - This is 6 full size pieces of Finese Floor (Helsini - style). You’d normally get 5 in a box. We’ve fitted this in our bathroom and now this is left over - BUT we have used all of these pieces as temporary flooring in our house in rooms where we had no flooring, so there is dust on the top, and some bits that have stuck into the foam on the bottom of each plank. There are also some pieces with large chips missing. I’ve included a picture to show it installed in our bathroom. Any questions, please ask. Collection from Ubley
Offer: Fibre Glass Insulation 10m2 (Ubley) Gifted 154d - Found this in our house when we moved in. It’s unused, still in its original bag, but does look a little old. There are a few holes in the bag, but the insulation itself looks OK, maybe a little dirty where dust has got in through some of the holes. Might be useful for someone to do top up insulation? Hoping to avoid taking it to the tip. It’s currently stored in our garden shed which is waterproof. The label says it will cover 10 meters square. Thanks

Offer: 25mm MDPE Water Pipe (Ubley) Gifted 157d - We’ve got 2 separate pieces of 25mm MDPE pipe. The first, larger length was given to me by my sister-in-law. She had been using it to make hula hoops. We had it to use as a new water supply to our property, but it’s missing a cap at 1 end, so Bristol Water wanted to charge us to clean the inside of the pipe, and we then bought a new 25 meter length, which worked out cheaper then having the first section cleaned. The 1st length is, at a guess, 20 meters long. The 2nd piece is the left over off cut from our new pipe installation, maybe 5 meters long (with detection cable attached with cable ties). I’d like to give these 2 pieces away together please. Any questions please ask.
Offer: Wellies (Size 5) (Ubley) Gifted 158d - 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 look practically new. They even still their price label inside. They are a little bit cobwebby, but nothing that a vacuum nozzle couldn’t handle.
Offer: Faux Leather & Diamanté Headboard (Ubley) Withdrawn 158d - 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: Lynx Set - Unwanted Gift (Ubley) Withdrawn 158d - 2 brand new & unused lynx sprays.

Offer: Wellies (Sizes 8 , 5 & Childs 7) (Ubley) Gifted 229d - 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.
Request: Check Your Spam Emails (Ubley) Withdrawn 248d - 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: Tile Backer Board & Screws (Ubley) Gifted 249d - 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: Ceramic Toilet (Ubley) Gifted 251d - 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 255d - 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 255d - 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 255d - 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 256d - 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 260d - 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.

Offer: Stone Blocks / Bricks (Ubley, BS40 6) Gifted 260d - 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) Withdrawn 261d - 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 261d - 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 261d - 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 261d - 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 261d - 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 262d - 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.
