Offer: Underlay (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 10d - I have a quantity of good quality carpet underlay (thick Hyper brand). It will cover a floor in excess of 12' square, but is in manageable pieces. (Underlay is supplied in 54" widths, so none of the rolls are more than that.) It can be safely collected at all reasonable times. Jeff 07980481849 Request: Pond Plants (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 32d - I am just creating a very small wildlife pond, and wonder whether someone with a larger pond may just be embarking on their annual pond maintenance. A smattering of small plants would be really useful, and I would, of course, collect 'safely' by arrangement. Thankyou - Jeff (Sprotbrough). Offer: Two Standard Lamps (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 43d - We have recently sold our static caravan. These two standard lamps (see photo) complete with 'seaside' shades if wanted, are now surplus to requirements. Can split if required. Jeff & Brenda. (Handover can easily be done at a safe distance.)
Offer: Pifco Rechargeable Vacuum (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 58d - Excellent condition. We bought it for our caravan, which we've since sold. Vacuum no longer needed, but would be ideal for a flat or a smaller house. Thanks for looking - Jeff & Brenda. PS: can be collected in total safety, as we can bring it to the five barred gate halfway down our drive (Sprotbrough Park).
Offer: Fence Panel offcuts. (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 135d - Following storm damage last weekend, we have half a dozen offcuts of vertilap fencing (see photo). They are all 6' wide, and between about 23" and 27" tall. In effect, they are the top sections of 6' X 6' panels, where the bottoms had become shattered. There is no rot, and they may well be useful in an allotment or for a project. If all else fails, they'd chop up into kindling for anyone with a log burner. Will fit into a decent sized estate car or small van. Collect pretty well any time. Thanks - Jeff & Brenda
Offer: Cordless Phones (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 157d - A set of four Phillips cordless telephones. There is a master phone, with charger base/answerphone, plus three 'slave' units with charger bases. They'll need new batteries (a total of eight rechargeable AAA size) but are sound otherwise. Offer: TV cabinet/unit (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 167d - Light wood TV cabinet with storage. Excellent condition; simply surplus to requirements. Please see photo. It's pretty heavy, but could deliver locally. Thanks for looking - Jeff & Brenda.
Offer: Pair of Hi/Lo Motor Horns (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 285d - Pair of 'wind tone' motor horns in working order (12v negative earth). It's not possible to fit them to my current car, so if they're of use to anyone, they can have them Request: Bale of straw. (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 1y - Looking for a bale (or part bale) of straw to support strawberries. Anybody know where I can get the same, please? Thankyou - Jeff (07980 481849). Offer: Block Paving (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 1y - My neighbour at 77 Park Drive, Sprotbrough, has a large amount of block paving for free collection. It's neatly stacked in metre size cubes at the roadside. Request: Walking Frame (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 1y - Following foot surgery, my wife is having problems with her balance. We therefore wondered if anyone has a walking frame ('Zimmer' frame) with or without wheels, please. I could collect promptly. Thankyou - Jeff. Offer: Sunding Bicycle Computer (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 1y - Sunding 548C1 bike computer (odometer). This is the handlebar unit ONLY. If anyone has lost their computer unit, but still has the wheel magnet etc, then they are welcome to collect this. I must stress that the computer is useless without the wheel magnet. Thanks - Jeff Request: Wheelchair Wanted - short term (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 1y - My wife has just had a foot operation. The hospital have given her some crutches, which are fine, but the loan of a wheelchair for a fortnight or so would be of great help. (When she had her other foot done a couple of years ago, a member of the family lent us a wheelchair, which was invaluable, but unfortunately he's since given it away.) Nothing posh needed, just a basic chair would be lovely. Thanks - Jeff & Brenda (Sprotbrough). Offer: BT Home Hub + Modem (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 1y - BT Home Hub, together with its Openreach modem and power supplies. Both as new. Request: Bunk Beds (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 1y - If anyone has a pair of bunk beds they no longer need, we would be grateful for them for our twin grandchildren (boy & girl) as they are getting too old to share the double bed in our spare room. (Indeed, if anyone with spare bunks would like to exchange them for a double bed with mattress, in excellent condition, please contact me. I could collect/deliver. Thanks - Jeff Offer: Two Hollowfibre Pillows (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 1y - A lady was asking, recently, for hollowfibre stuffing, for making soft toys. We have two pillows that have gone 'lumpy' in the wash. They're perfectly clean, but no longer any use for sleeping on. We're in Sprotbrough village. Jeff & Brenda Offer: Central Heating Radiator (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 1y - Radiator in excellent condition. Eight years old, and only removed due to having door fitted where it was sited! It is a K1 (single panel with fins - approx 1436 watts / 4800 btus) and is 600mm high by 1400mm wide. Has blank plug and bleed fittings, but will need valves. Request: Half a dozen runner bean plants (Sprotbrough DN5) Received 2y - Hi. If any fellow gardener has half a dozen runner bean plants spare, we would love them! Thanks in anticipation - Jeff & Brenda. Offer: Coffee table (Sprotbrough DN5) Gifted 2y - Heavy, dark wood coffee table in excellent condition. Approx four foot by two foot. Apologies if photo is upside down; neither of the rotate buttons will function. (Administration, please note!).
