Fireplace grate

Mayur from Howick

Hey everyone, I am looking for a cast iron or steel grate for my fireplace. The current one gave up after approx. 70 years of service ( I guess). I have been trying to find one online but no luck. Is there any local shop where I can get one from or someone willing to sell theirs if they don't … View moreHey everyone, I am looking for a cast iron or steel grate for my fireplace. The current one gave up after approx. 70 years of service ( I guess). I have been trying to find one online but no luck. Is there any local shop where I can get one from or someone willing to sell theirs if they don't use their fireplace anymore.

TIA

Small businesses are vital to the recovery of our economy.

During the Covid-19 restrictions, business owners have shown initiative, hard work and resilience to keep afloat.

But many have been hit hard.

Lack of clarity about just how heavy the toll of the restrictions have been on individual businesses and their ability to quickly rebound adds to the uncertainty of the national economic recovery.

Therefore, Prosper is launching a survey targeted at finding out the scale of Covid-19's impact.

You can take that survey right now – it will only take a few minutes.

As you can expect, we’ll be implementing a lot of procedures to keep you, our communities and our people safe. You'll see we have introduced contact tracing, increased cleaning, hand sanitisers and ways to help with social distancing.

We're as excited as you will be, that the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will be open, as we’ve been able to extend it for a limited time.

As they are high touch spaces, unfortunately we won’t be opening Weird and Wonderful, Volcanoes gallery or the Kai Room. We’ll keep updating our website as details become available, so you can plan your visit.

See you soon!
