PROJECT: Ford Focus for sale

Are you a bit handy with cars? Fancy a project? I’m selling my 2004 Ford Focus Flight as we have bought a new car - it needs a new exhaust (including catalytic converter). I’ve found the parts for around £100 on eBay, I just don’t have the time or the inclination to fix it, but it’s a great little car with a lot of life left in it so it seems a massive waste to scrap it. Other things to note are two small chips in the windscreen (although one has been filled by Botley Windscreens, it’s just still visible) and a bit of a leak in the boot when there’s torrential rain - the seals and vents have been checked by the garage and reported to be sound, they suspect it might just be a case of tightening up the tailgate. All pretty easy fixes really.

Mileage is 131,597. It is still driveable, but obviously needs attention sooner rather than later.

Looking for £300, but open to sensible offers.

Free Coaching opportunity

Dear neighbours.

I am working on growing my coaching practice in the local community and am looking to work with two new people in March. I will not charge for sessions but would ask that anyone who is interested would be willing to make a donation to a charity or good cause in exchange if they find our work has helped in any way.

I primarily work in health and life coaching with women but am very open to other scenarios if you feel coaching could help you (which I'm almost certain it could if you are ready for a change!)

I look forward to hearing from you soon if you are interested; if it's not for you perhaps you could share this with a friend?

REM-Fit Snow Pillow

If you get warm/hot at night, this pillow is perfect for you! It has been made using super clever material that makes it cool all night long, and it is a really supportive pillow.

We bought this pillow for £89 when also getting a mattress from REM-Fit (which we absolutely love!) however, the pillow was too firm for both myself and my partner. It has been slept on for two nights in total, with a pillow protector case and standard pillow case over it (we took care as weren't sure when initially feeling it so suspected it might need returning/re-selling). The box has therefore been opened but we have repackaged it. You can read more about the pillow here: and despite us finding it firm, many reviews say it feels medium

We are happy to sell for around £40, and will take offers. Please email thanks!

Ashdown Perfect Ten Bass Amp

I'm looking for an offer around £50 for this amp, which is in very good condition. The model was sold from about 2012; now discontinued. It has a 10” speaker and is rated at 40 watts. 

It’s a perfect practice amp with plenty of bass thump and is also ok for small rehearsals or gigs. There’s no line out but there is a very useful line input for music players and a headphone out, so you can play along to tracks and practice in silence if you want. If you are starting out on bass guitar and need a good first amp for a modest price, send me a message.


Power Output (RMS) 40W 

Speaker Configuration 1 x 10" 

Line Input Impedance 1M Ohm, Input range 100mV to 10V 

H x W x D (mm) 505 x 444 x 500 

Weight (kg) 21.43
