Help I have a hole in my ceiling

Dianne from Hamilton East

Today while vacuuming, I discovered a hole about the size of at least an inch in diameter up in the ceiling next to my chimney......there is no other evidence of holes, anywhere else in that ceiling and it has never leaked or had any damp.

Today while vacuuming, I discovered a hole about the size of at least an inch in diameter up in the ceiling next to my chimney......there is no other evidence of holes, anywhere else in that ceiling and it has never leaked or had any damp.

Has anyone any ideas of what I need to do; my thoughts are that the gib would need to be replaced, at that spot, half a sheet would do it......would this be the way to go?

Any advice would be much appreciated

Scam

Dianne from Hamilton East

Just be aware that the Inland Revenue fake emails have started the rounds again. Probably reckoning on people needing quick money fast atm. The bona fide Inland Revenue never asks you for account details, nor does it have a form that is in this email.
Best to not open it and just press delete.
