We want to get a new gas cooker to replace old knacered one..., can we install it ourselves or do we need a Corgi gas fitter in which case how much should I expect to be charged?

You do need a registered gas fitter, yes. We had a dual fuel range cooker fitted last year and it cost £100; it would have been £50 for a regular cooker- it was just the range was so heavy it needed two men. All the pipework was in plce- it just needed connecting up.
