We are very sadly selling our house in the Perigord after 30 happy years and have a lot of good quality household items, bedding, linen, clothes etc which need rehoming. I am loathe to just send them to the tip as somewhere there might be someone who could use them. Does anybody know of a charity which might be able to make use of the ?

Hi, does anyone know of a farmer in the Sarlat region who would be able to cut (and bale and keep the grass) our land of 1.2 hectares and then plow a 3000 square meter area? We need to plow every two weeks, three times altogether,  We're working in Normandy at the moment until we can move so trying to find someone is a bit difficult..any help or direction would be really appreciated.  Thank you

I am restoring a traditional stone barn and need some stone blocks (stone typical of  Bergerac area) to rebuild a doorway. I need several cut blocks, preferably old and weathered, about 35 cm deep ( similar height and width), to match existing. Does anyone have such material for sale (tumbled down barn/building ?) or know of where such reclaimed materials can be sourced in the Bergerac area ?

Hi, before I try buying a converter I would like to check if anyone has a good supplier in the Dordogne?  It’s needed for a US vacuum cleaner hubby just bought me. The electricians here near me were unsympathetic and of no help whatsoever. All answers gratefully received.

Would be most grateful for any advice on where to buy and the best method of fixing composite decking.  Also which make is regarded as being good value for money. I have so far been advised not to buy the hollow decking, it is prone to impact damage, but to buy a solid decking containing between 50 and 65% wood which is stronger and less likely to warp or look too 'plasticy'. I have read a number of reviews on the french websites.  The reviewers generally do not have many positive comments about the various clip fixings.  I would rather not drill and screw the boards if I can help it but if the other fixings, which do look a bit fiddly, are not man enough for the job, especially for steps, then may be I should. Any advice would be appreciated especially from anyone who has used this material.  Thanks in advance.

I have a detached holiday house near Cours-de-Pile just outside Bergerac. There is an area of lawn approx 30 x 60 metres including the house footprint and the drive, which has not been cut since early November. I had intended to visit this week to do a bit of maintenance work but, for obvious reasons, this has been postponed. Could anyone recommend someone, who would be able to cut the lawn and, if so, could you let me have contact details?David CheadleBathUK
