I'm happy to report that Lee arrived on time at 7.00pm and sorted my kitchen light out - thank goodness. He was honest with me and not expensive and I'll certainly contact him again should the need arise.
I have a fantastic electrician who is honest, reliable and reasonable (I wouldn't use the word cheap as I have learnt through bitter experince that you get what you pay for). He was originally recommended to me by a friend and he has done a variety of work for other friends. If anyone is still looking let me know and I'll give you his number.
After we saw KM's message on Thursday we decided to give Lee a chance. We called him on Friday and he came round on the weekend to put up a couple of lights. Lee was everything KM said in terms of friendly and reliable. We will definitely use him again.
