My Essential St Leonards

I moved here a number of years ago and every time I needed a trades person, service or recommendation I asked around and in time found what I needed. With Some good and some bad experiences. To save you time, here are is my list of “Essential St Leonards”



For the Home

Handy Man

Handy Man House and Garden 

Med has completed a few jobs for us. Installing utility room cupboards, boxing, minor electrical jobs and plumbing.


Senlac Electrical

They have installed ceiling lights, bathroom extractor fans, garden lights and security lights.

Wood Burners / Stoves


We went to what it felt like was every Wood Burner supplier in East Sussex. These were by far the most professional.
They don’t install, but have a list of people the recommend. It is in Robertsbridge about 15 mins from St Leonards.
