Scarlet a Pomeranian dog needs a home

Meet Scarlet, a 1 year old Pomeranian dog who was found abandoned. All Dogs Matter are now looking to find her a forever home (or a temporary foster home in the meantime). This affectionate girl can live with children aged 10 years and above. She would prefer to be the only dog in the home. She can’t live in a flat as Pomeranians can be very vocal.

Gate posts and gate needed for house in Alexandra Park

The gate posts at the front of my house have rotted away and the cast iron gate is also on its very last legs. I know where I can get replacement gate posts made (apparently there's a joiner in Muswell Hill who does them), but what I'm looking for is a builder to fit them. I also need a cast-iron gate fitted too. So if anyone knows of a good builder for this sort of job, or has ideas about local salvage places for gates, please do let me know.
