Handy men are the best

COUNCIL chiefs say 98 per cent of residents who have used their approved handy-man service are satisfied with the work done.

A total of 134 elderly and disabled people who have used the service were questioned by Nottinghamshire County Council.

For a flat rate of £10 per session, plus the cost of any materials, approved traders can put up shelves, fix loose carpets or carry out other small jobs for the over 60s or disabled.
