I need approximately 40 tonnes of compactable stone to create a driveway. Can anyone recommend a competitive builder's merchant or preferably a quarry that can supply this, in the Agen - Cahors region?

Can anyone give me an indication of the difference to the value of a very small piece of land - a kitchen garden to be precise - that the presence of a well makes. It is a good well, which has not run dry in the three years I've had the property. However, a farmer is keen to get his hands on the land/well and I am struggling to get a sensible idea of the true value. The piece of land itself is too small for a farmer to make anything of it, so it must be the well he wants. Any thoughts would be welcomeAlan Longland

We have a well which seemed to dry out very fast once we used it to water garden. The house and well are 187 years old. I wonder if should make the well deeper to reach the water table? Bearing in mind there is a lot of farming around us. Does anyone know a well person (whatever they are called?) Thanks Jillie

Hi, Does anyone know where I might buy a pipe freezing kit similar to one supplied by Screwfix in the UK, see link below. I've tried the usual Bricos without any luck.... http://www.screwfix.com/app/sfd/cat/pro.jsp?cId=100130&ts=81457&id=13369 Cheers,

I am looking for a metal, double dish rack of a type I have seen but not found yet - Any big stores in Aveyron that someone knows that might have this sort of thing? Also - are there any low-cost stores like the equivalent of a Uk 'Wilkinsons'? Unfortunately, we don't live in France yet so don't have much chance to investigate ourselves ThanksJM

We have a house in Aveyron and I would like to know of any big garden-centre type stores that are around in that part of the world. All I have seen are small places with limited stock. Thanks JM

We'll be moving to Tarn et Garonne nr Beaumont later in the year. Are there any gardening books/websites in English that can give advice about what suits the area? At present I garden in the cold NE Scotland so hoping for better things - unfortunately 'Gardeners's Questiontime' doesn't advise on France!

Having just bought a house here and having brought my beloved Godin cooker from the UK which is being installed at the beginning of March, I am selling the Neff hob which is going to be replaced. I've looked on the internet for the code but have been unable to find it. The model no is T1722NO. I've found a similar one T1643. It has four rings, touch control and works perfectly. If anyone's interested then please email. It is three approx. 3 years old. Price 150 Euros. We live in dept 81. Buyer collects.

We have recently moved to an old house near Lectoure (32) and have discovered that there is no insulation in the roof. As I have a bad back I don't fancy installing it myself does anyone recommend an artisan who will do the job
