Fitted Wardrobes and Cabinets

Dominique G in Shipley
Are fitted wardrobes and cabinets expensive to have done? Who would you recommend? Interested in putting some in our bedroom and possibly some cabinets in our lounge and bathroom.
Susan B
Johnny Whitham 07793083138 made fitted units in our little bedroom (old cottage with not one straight wall and a sloping ceiling) and a storage cupboard downstairs out of MDF which he paints whatever colour you want. He uses MDF as it can be cut to ... [ more ]

Help in garden

Dina P

I'm looking for someone to help me with a little light gardening? Any one out there? I've got the tools ( I think!)
Susan B
A young man called Michael Lamont 07818 432857 has his own small business, does a really good job, is very considerate and will not overcharge you. No job too small. You could ask him for a trial session.

Decorator and handyperson

Helen
in Shipley
Can anyone recommend an experienced and reliable decorator to wallpaper and paint. Also a handyperson to do small plumbing and odd jobs. Thanks.
Susan B
I can second that. Steve Rhodes did a brilliant job decorating my second bedroom. No mess, efficient, reliable and reasonably priced. His son, Jordan Mackin, 07785546595 is an electrician and plumber. His brother can do tiling. All great workers and ... [ more ]
Susan B
I have just had a message from the streetlife support team to say my recommendation of Steve Rhodes as a decorator has been removed! This apparently is due to either the meaning being unclear or I have used poor spelling or grammar. I assure you that ... [ more ]
Susan B
I have not a clue! They said they had removed it but my friend told me last night it was still on. Very strange. Thank you for letting me know. They may have made a mistake and put it back on. I will put it down to 'human error' and not to my lack of ... [ more ]

I second that Scoobydoo. I agree entirely being a horse owner. I hope they bring legislation in soon to contain unauthorised users.

Horse riding

Jenefer L
in Manningham
Can anyone recommend a friendly, good riding school, for an adult who can ride a bit but wants to get better, so she can canter without falling off!
Susan B
Salter Royd has an indoor ménage so there's nowhere for your horse to canter to therefore it should make you feel safer. Once you feel confident there are hacks out you could do in a group with an instructor. Hope you find somewhere and enjoy it. From ... [ more ]
Susan B
Sorry, which one was sold? Wilsden or Salter Royd.? What was your experience of Salter Royd lessons as I am going back a few years?

Damp proofing needed

Susan B
in Baildon
Can anyone recommend a reliable damp proofing company to help with the rising damp on 2 walls in our lounge.
Susan B
Thank you for your comments Terry but, as Peter says, if you are going to give negative comments about a company it would be helpful if you could name them. It does sound a disastrous job she had done and I wonder why it wasn't resolved. However, ... [ more ]

Reiki Healing

Susan B
I find Linda's prices very reasonable and below the usual cost as she treats you from the comfort of her own home. It's a really good stress buster and helps if you're feeling a bit 'under the weather.' The house is easy to find and not far from ... [ more ]

Susan B

Hi so sorry to hear that. The police aren't interested in lost dogs and don't get involved. Ring your council and ask for the number of your local dog pound to see if anyone has handed it in or it's been caught by the council dog warden. If it's been ... [ more ]

Pretty tortoiseshell, ginger and white cat

Tina C
in Shipley
This little cat is frequently seen begging for attention in the East Parade/ Heather Road area. It has been fed by many caring residents, but it is obvious it is unable to get home and the RSPCA are unable to do anything. Why is it left to its own ... [ more ]
Susan B
We have to remind ourselves of the RSPCA's mission and that is its commitment to ' cruelty' towards animals not to take in strays. As you rightly say there are other charities out there which help to rehome animals or reunite them with their families. ... [ more ]
