Hi, does anyone know of a local place that could replace the handles on my handbag? I've found a couple of on-line places but would like to use a local shop if possible. The "ordinary" cobblers can't do it. Thanks!
Next time :-) have a chat with the leather experts in New Malden in Leather and Grindery http://www.leatherandgrindery.com/
Konstantino did a superb job. Made completely new handles (matching the rest of the leather) and undid the lining to sew them on. They are stronger and better than before! Thanks, all, for the recommendations.

There is no such a thing as a "META DATA specialist" You need to outline what you need to do and then people with a technical background may be able to suggest the kind of professional you need and give you some pointers.

I'm wondering whether Wandsworth Council have cut back on street cleaning and maybe also recycling as a cost cutting exercise? For weeks now I've been applying online for more recycling bags but none have been delivered and I've seen little evidence of ... [ more ]
Just to update, not only have I now received a full compliment of recycling bags for each missed delivery, but a man came around to personally hand deliver some and double check I'd received some earlier. Fantastic! Could not have asked for more.

Thank you very much Yvonne. I have not seen or heard any official warnings about this but saw your message, checked out my Hotpoint model and low and behold it is on the list and is therefore potentially dangerous. Thank you for passing the message on. ... [ more ]
You are welcome! My friend had a serious fire in her flat caused by her dishwasher. Basically, the general advice is never leave a washing machine, dishwasher or dryer running when you are out!

Speak to John Leatham 07843 262 071 - top guy been working the Streatham area for over 11 years and is highly reliable.
Thanks, all. I went with Mark Drinkwater. Came when he said he would and quickly fitted the new valve at a reasonable price. I can now recommend him, too.

How much does this sort of job cost? thank you
