Does anyone know a decorator in The Borough are who would be willing to do a small job? I need someone to wallpaper a bedroom? We can do the painting ourselves. The flat is so small, and we have nowhere to go while it's being decorated, so I don't want people in any longer than necessary.

I think I must be the only person who read this guys references on here, called him, and to whom he provided a quote more than twice that of any other contractor who priced for my project.

To explain, I contacted Mr Nelson further to a recommendation on this site. I was a bit disconcerted when Mr Nelson turned up with someone who then behaved as if he was his 'manager'? (I'm not sure because he didn't introduce himself) and who then took charge of the process of looking around and commenting on the scope of work. The resulting price quoted was ridiculously high. Perhaps they decided they didn't need the work, or fancy it for some reason, so maybe they deliberately priced themselves out of it. However, the overall experience of engaging him and his 'manager / partner' to get a price was not edifying, and the resulting laughable quote just underlined my initial discomfort when I showed them around.

The guy I eventually commissioned has completed an excellent job, at a (imo) reasonable price.
