Offer: Netbook (Allestree DE22) Gifted - 11-year old Acer Aspire Netbook with Intel Atom processor and Windows XP. Comes with original box and accessories. The battery has expired so it will only run when plugged in but it does work. I'm sure it could be of use to someone.

Offer: Water Butt (Allestree DE22) Gifted - Nearly new 220 litre water butt with diverter kit and stand. There is a problem that the plastic at the bottom is a bit weak. Not a problem if you sit it on a solid surface but if you want to stand it on bricks the weight of water will cause it to deform and fall off.

Offer: Single Duvet (Allestree DE22) Gifted - Old thin single duvet. Only really any good as a bed for a pet. Offer: Fuji X-T10 Digital Camera faulty (Allestree DE22) Gifted - Body only with no battery, lenses or accessories. The sensor has a fault which leaves a small black mark on all images.

Offer: Electronics (Allestree DE22) Gifted - This is a battery backup for sensitive electrical equipment or dealing with power cuts (typically computers). The unit is in perfect working order but the battery requires replacement (the expensive part!) The unit is split into eight plugs, four run via the battery and WILL NOT WORK until the battery is replaced. However the other four are just surge protected so could be used without replacing the battery.
