8b73260ce0143c139c61e89a496843ee.pngAre you looking for a local trades person in Hereford or Worcester - a decorator, builder, dog groomer, or even family photographer?  Check out the ones recommended to us!

While we would all love to have the perfect home and garden, it can take up a lot of time and energy to keep it all looking it's best.  And let's be honest, we can't be good at everything, and who has the time? But fortunately there are professionals out there who can step in to do the job quicker and better - it's their chosen profession after all!

After so long locked down in our homes, many of us are keen to get out and start enjoying local places now opening, and are busy planning fun things to do with the children.  So many fun activities don't cost a fortune - we have loads of ideas here - so why not plan to get out as much as possible, and pay a professional to come in to tackle those outstanding jobs?

We want to help support our very best local businesses with free listings on our website, so if you know the perfect plumber, fantastic photographer, a dazzling decorator, or the greatest gardener, let us know! They can be added to our growing base of local tradespeople by submitting their details here.

Those with recommendations from our readers will be added to this feature!  Send your recommendations in here.

John Short - Painter / decorator.

'John was excellent from the outset, giving us a good quote and showing us to images of his previous jobs. He is a busy man with lots of bookings (not surprising) - all from word of mouth - but we liked that he was clear about his availability, and didn't let us down.  A very tidy worker, and really pleasant guy.  After he came in to decorate one room, we immediately booked him in to do more.'  Trev C, Herefordshire.


Charlie Summers Portraits - family / maternity / newborn photographer.

'Charlie was fantastic to be photographed by. She was so good with my daughter and put her and us at ease straight away. We weren't sure of a location but Charlie suggested a wonderful spot with beautiful scenery, definitely somewhere we'll return to. All in all a relaxed and enjoyable morning.' Lydia N, Herefordshire
