Yes and yes.

They specialize in metalwork and plastics (castellations, mouseguards, roof metal, frame spacers etc.)
Also good value.

However, Brian the owner and main man had a bad road accident around 6 months back. I don't know the latest but his friends/family were keeping things ticking over as best they could. Possibly a reduced service still in force but well worth a try.

There is no website to my knowledge. Phone 01905 29517.

Can't fault them, generally buy tin for roofs off them and castelated spacers.

Just been looking at their ad in bee craft they also make extractors as well. No prices for anything in their ad though.

I bought a few things off Brian when he had the business.
He let things slip slightly after he had a pacemaker fitted and then was involved in a bad car accident.
I spoke with the couple who have taken the business over when I ordered some roofs last week. They are increasing their product range and hope to have price lists out soon, they are also working on setting up a web site. They are also changing the name to, I think, BeeBits.
Meanwhile, the telephone number is still the same 01905 29517 and ,as yet, they don't do credit cards.
The roofs arrived within a few days, the young lady in the office phoned prior to let me know they were on their way.
Very happy with them.
Paul.

Thanks Paul,

Good information. A bit more of what this forum needs and a good deal more useful than petty spats over technique.

The products were well made and I would buy from him again

I have tried to contact them but had no joy, however if the main man has been ill it's quite understandable.

Hairbear, what are the queen excluders like are they framed stainless steel wire?

They did list framed excluders,but the website has been out of action for a while....and only recently back in action....so i expect they will be listing them again in the future.
