Free: Blue Fabric Gazebo cover for 3m x 3m gazebo (Wheathampstead AL4) Promised - Hi, Sadly our old gazebo body did not survive previous rain/wind. The top or cover is for an older 3 x 3m model. Somewhere I have some side panels but cannot find them at the moment. I'll keep looking. Probably purchased from Argos originally, can't tell you much more except that it still seems waterproof and might do as a spare. (cover only no structure) Thanks Dave.

Free: Wooden coffee table - broken leg (Wheathampstead AL4) Withdrawn - Hi, Decorative wooden coffee table, approx 3 ft long. Needs some restoration/upcycling.

Free: 3 old pasting tables. Used for advertising (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - As can be seen, these tables were used 'A Board' style for advertising.

Free: Kawai Digital Piano CL36 Owner's Manual (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi. Though we no longer have the piano, the Owners Manual has just been found in a clear out. Anyone local who might have this type of piano, saves downloading the manuals. Just to emphasise, this is the paper owners manual only and not the piano. ! Thanks, Dave. Free: Bag of Sticky (Glutinous ) rice (Wheathampstead AL4) Gifted - Hi, Bought by my daughter (by mistake) , we've only used two portions and its not as easy to cook as we thought, unless you have the right equipment. Most of the 5Kg left and has been safely stored in kitchen cupboard along with the rest of our food. We are not going to use and seems a shame to waste it. Any lovers of sticky rice out there ? Thanks Dave.

Free: Part Bag Fishmongers Finest Dry Dog Food (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi. Offered are the remains of large bag of dry 'white fish and potato' Sensitive dog food. Too rich for our new rescue dog. Not that much left in the bag but at a guess over 1Kg which might help someone I hope. We are in Lower Luton Road, Wheathampstead. Perhaps not worth travelling for the amount left but hopefully will suit a local dog owner. Thanks Dave. Request: Vintage empty wine bottles (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi, Rather a strange request, just in case ... Would like to find a few empty wine bottles (not last weeks from any major supermarket thanks,- I have some of those!.) in this case I'm looking for some from the 1940s era. Perhaps someone may have come across something recently in clearing a shed etc. and think they are only good for recycling. Would be appreciated here. Many Thanks Dave. Request: Some old garden trellis (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi, Rehoming an ex-racer greyhound soon and I am told I need to increase the height of some of our garden wall. Looking for a couple of pieces of wooden trellis (ideally rectangular 3ft x 5ft ) that I can put onto to some posts against the wall to increase height. I'm sure I could make most sizes work. It would appear that greyhounds are happy to jump over 4ft (the height of our wall !). We are in Wheathampstead, can collect locally. Many Thanks Dave. Free: Breville Rice Cooker (not working) (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi. Modern Breville Rice cooker, probably used less than 10-15 times. Problem possibly with thermostat, now not heating. I know its not the fuse in the plug, thats about my electronics limit. We were bought another for Xmas. Naturally I'm loathe to throw the broken one away, as its fairly new (out of warranty of course) , and may be a simple fix for someone. Anyone interested in repairs, you would be welcome to collect. - Socially distanced of course. Thanks Dave. Free: Old map books or guides (Wheathampstead AL4) Gifted - Hi, I have a number of out of date UK road atlases, guides and world atlas that might suit someone doing craft work or making decorative items. These are not really suitable for use other than dismantling for individual pages. Any use to anyone during lockdown before they are recycled. Collect from Wheathampstead Thanks Dave. Request: Thermostatic Radiator Valve head (Wheathampstead AL4) Expired - Hi. Obviously its coming to that time of year. In trying to switch on radiators two thermostatic valve heads have broken (they don't make em like they used to !). By any chance would anyone have one or two no longer needed in the back of a drawer or in the garage. They would be greatly appreciated here and put back into use. (To clarify its just the temperature setting head that I'm after). Thanks for reading Dave.
