Bit of an odd request, but I want to do some clay throwing of a pot, but I want to go right back to basics.  i.e. dig up a small amount of clay to throw on a wheel.  I know you have to create a slip, and sieve it to clean it up, roll it out etc.Anyone know any local potters?  They might know.  Or any local spots with reddish clay.  Just want a small amount.  ThanksSee More

Local tool sharpening guy

Hi everyonejust bought myself a lovely vintage push mower from the 1950'sI may have a go at sharpening it myself in future, but at least for the first one, I want it done professionally.I am aware Beckenham mowers exists, but I gather they are really expensive.  Whatever happened to those people who used to go round sharpening tools out of the back of a van?Anyone know any cheap tool sharpening services?ThanksSee More

Need local recommendation for Man with a Van

You'll see from my other post I have scored a greenhouse, but I need to pick it up on Sunday. Can anyone recommend a reliable man with a large van.  Due to the size of the some of the pieces of the greenhouse, it will probably need 12ft loading length.CheersSee More

If I could find some like minded people, I'd like to revolutionise this place in terms of sustainability. We are a huge drain on energy and resources just like every other suburban town out there, and there is no need.
