HiAt last we have sold the UK house and are ready to get the contents shipped to our storage site. Covid 19 isolation restrictions have meant I've not been able to get back as easily as hoped.The contents of our home are due to arrive on Saturday morning 19th June, but the barn needs some space clearing to be able to pile the contents inside.Shipping to the Villefagnan 16240 area, I'm looking for someone willing and able to do a few hours tidy up inside the barn (assisted by my local buddy) before the goodies arrive.Deadline to get the space cleared is 18th June, but I should be able to arrange for the assistant pair of hands anytime between now and the 18th. There's a cash bounty for the willing additional pair of hands.If you can help or know someone who may be willing and able please reply to this message or contact direct at:house@laulind.co.ukCheers Ken M

Hello/Bonjour -We are coming to our newly purchased home in Chabanais in late July.  Our house is empty with no furniture!  I am looking for advice on where to shop for the essentials as well as furniture (new and antiques).  We literally need almost everything (beds, sofa, tables, kitchen equip, etc).  We will have a rental van to pick up items.  We will have to accomplish all we can in just 5 days or so.  I know we wont get everything we want in 5 days but we have to make some progress to be able to bring the rest of our family on the next trip.  Help!

We will be shortly moving to a new house with a large plot which needs to be turned into a garden. Can anybody reccommend a garden centre or nursery - ideally one which will offer 'trade prices' given that we will be looking to buy many trees and shrubs, grass seed etc. We will also be looking to buy a polytunnel.
