Offer: Radiator - 1800x500 (Cofton Hackett B45) - White radiator. 1800 long x 500 high. Single panel radiator with rear fins. We have fixing brackets for it. Good condition, used for 4 years. Removed last year, whilst making some changes to the house. There is some rust around one of the end caps which will need attention (I think the end cap was loose and had been leaking). We had a similar problem with another radiator and after scraping away the rust, applying rust treatment and fitting a new washer it is now working fine. So this should be easily fixable. Collect from Cofton Hackett, B45.

Request: Stones for dry stone wall and steps (Cofton Hackett B45) - I need some stones for building dry stone wall and building some rustic steps, please. I am looking for flat pieces of stone similar to the photo (this photo is our existing wall which I need to re-build and extend to make space for a larger greenhouse). I am also looking for some larger pieces of stone which may be suitable for making some rustic steps to climb to the upper garden level (we have a steep garden). We can collect - just a few pieces or multiple car loads, from within about 5 miles of the Lickey Hills (so Rednal, Rubery, Longbridge, Barnt Green, Lickey, Alvechurch, North Bromsgrove or North Redditch, etc.) Thanks for reading, and anything suitable will be appreciated.

Offer: Childs bike - 16 inch wheels (Cofton Hackett B45) - Child's bike - 16 inch wheels. Needs some tlc, it is a bit battered. The brakes are stiff and difficult to use, so I suspect it needs new brake cables. Quite heavy bike. It was given to us, but we didn't use it. It could make a good project if you can fix the brakes and give it an overhaul. Collect from Cofton Hackett, B45.

Offer: Fern plants (Cofton Hackett B45) Gifted - I have just dug up and divided my large fern plants (Dryopteris felix-mas, male fern) The leaves will grow to between 2 and 3 feet long (see attached photos) There are about 6 clumps, between around 5 inches and 12 inches across. They don't have any leaves yet, but have a lot of leaf buds ready to grow soon. (you will need to be careful when planting, not to damage these or cover them with soil) Collect from Cofton Hackett, B45. To minimise contact, once you confirm collection time, I can leave them at the bottom of the driveway ready to collect. Bring a bucket or box with you to put them in.

Request: Wall Stone for dry stone walls (Cofton Hackett B45) Expired - I am looking for some wall stone please, for making dry stone walls. We need quite a lot of stone in various sizes - similar to that in the picture. We are happy to collect small or large quantities, from anywhere within about 5 or 6 miles of Rednal. Also happy to help to dismantle a wall (as long as it isn't held together with mortar). The stone we want is a hard and heavy stone, with fairly flat surfaces. We want it to add to our existing dry stone walls to hold back the soil in our hilly garden, and to extend the wall and add another section. We would also be interested in larger stone pieces which would be suitable for making steps. We are near the Lickey Hills, and can collect from South Birmingham/North Worcestershire areas (Lickey, Barnt Green, Alvechurch, Northfield, Rubery, North Bromsgrove, etc.) Thank You
