Request: Pocket calculator (battery) (Lichfield WS14) Received 1d - My daughter has just started as a nurse and it is handy to have a calculator on her person! We have a couple of pocket ones but they need light to function and when she works night shifts then it is not light enough to power it. If anyone has a little one that is battery powered that they are no longer using then that would be appreciated. Thanks Offer: Turf - contains moss (Lichfield WS14) Gifted 4d - About 3 square meters of grass that we have dug up to widen a bed. It will have moss in it too but could be of use just to cover a rough ground or something rather than for a golf course standard lawn!
Offer: Perennial garden plants (Lichfield WS14) Promised 4d - I have dug out all sorts of things - mainly ones which spread easily - some pink and some lilac geraniums, Michaelmas Daisy, white Phlox, day lilies, mint, orange montbretia, pink sedum, small euonymus variegated shrub, ground spreading euonymus and a few other bits and pieces. Offer: Ralph Lauren Polo Red aftershave (Lichfield WS14) Gifted 18d - Half a bottle if anyone likes it. My husband has gone off it!! Offer: Exercise pull up bar (Lichfield WS14) Gifted 45d - I collected this via Freecycle but sadly it does not fit well in our doorways so perhaps someone else might like to try it? The pole is 81cm when it is extended to its full width so perhaps check your doorframe width first. It slipped from ours as could not get it tight enough.

Request: Baking stone (Lichfield WS14) Withdrawn 64d - Just in case anyone has a baking stone that they are no longer using, I would like to try it for bread and pizza making, now that I have a decent oven that gets good results! Thank you. Offer: Tefal Clipso pressure cooker (Lichfield WS14) Gifted 71d - Steel pan so it works fine on induction hobs. Needs a new rubber gasket seal I believe as not keeping pressure in.

Offer: TV Stand (Lichfield WS14) Withdrawn 111d - Black glass 2 shelf TV stand with chrome legs. Apologies that I did not get a photo before it was dismantled. It is angled at the back of the shelf corners so that it fits into the room corner, if you see what I mean! Shelves are 31" wide, 16.5" deep. Height probably around 18".
