Hello all, hope you are safe and well.
The fence between us and next door blew down some years ago, Mr Neighbour offered to put it back up, which was kind of him.
However, he is obviously a stranger to a spirit level and the fence is not only all over the shop with regard to the "horizontals" but is now leaning quite badly.
We've had a couple of quotes to replace it, and it's looking like well over £800
We really can't fork out that much at the moment, so we're wondering if it would be acceptable to approach neighbours and ask them if they might contribute to the cost, as a new fence would benefit them as much as us.
Generally we get on well, but Mrs Neighbour can be a bit "prickly"
They are younger than us, both work full time, and have no mortgage. I'm down to 2 days a week, Mr P has gone to around half his previous income, and we still have a mortgage
What are your thoughts?
