A quick shout out to our Sparkland family of readers: me and my family need somewhere to live from July 1st (we have to move out of our current house)... and are eager for hook-ups and personal recommendations for nice landlords in East or South Bristol who are looking to rent out their house for 6 months or longer from July/August onwards...  we are only interested in private rentals, we make good neighbours, and we promise to keep the house in a good condition, prettified on the inside and green around the outside!
We need:
• 2 bedrooms
• a garden
• street van parking space outside
• reasonable rent!
Pls get in touch with Vicki on editor@thespark.co.uk if you have info or contacts... many thanks...
