Sue Bridge (39) has asked me to let you know that she has taken out third party insurance of £5 million to cover any damage done by traders who do not have appropriate insurance themselves. She is happy to explain.

Simon Youngs “Computer Boffin” 07751 795 762.

Used for 5 years. Very friendly and competent with reasonable charges.

Residents have used him to sort out software on a muddled Windows
 PC and to replace failing parts.

P.D. Hunt Ltd: phone 02380814348

I have only used these guys once, when all my electrics in the flat blew! It’s my understanding the company installed the original electrics in the flats but that is only rumour.

It was late afternoon when all went dark. Engineer arrived, found original fuse box had overheated and fused itself together. He did a good job and certainly ensured all was fixed before he left.

Slightly expensive but, given it was a late afternoon callout, not too bad.

RGM Electrical Services. Phone Richard on 07795211836.


I have used the company for the past 17 years. They did everything from rewiring my old house, putting in new plug sockets to sorting out fuses when they tripped. I totally trust them and will use to install additional sockets in my flat.




We have used Rob Ball for the last 25 years for building and decorating and found him always courteous, sensible and obliging and value for money. He will always cover up and clean after any job. He is ever in demand so cannot appear at the drop of a hat but will usually give a date. It might be useful to arrange with others a monthly drop in to sort minor problems.

He is available during working hours on 07721616020

We used them in 2018 rearrange our extend and rearrange our kitchen unit.

Example Here

They also installed a waste disposer and tiled our splashback.

We have been delighted with their design and workmanship.

Several other apartments have since used them.

Tom Powers Maintenance: phone 07561200468

Tom is a general handyman who I have used for the past 10 years or so. Before I moved he did a lot of work in both my house, garden and greenhouse. Since I have moved here, he has installed new kitchen units and shelving all round the flat, put up pictures, installed restraints on anything small grandson could pull down and helped me redesign silly corner cupboard in kitchen so it now has a pull out revolving unit that I can get to!


 Tom's Company carries £2m 3rd party insurance but, as I carry £5m on my own insurance, I use him for McCarthy Stone 'permission required' things and he's not yet been rejected.
