Bath based GTV needs new belt - which garage?

Every now and then when I start the car, I get that awful 'diesel sound' for a minute or two.
I am told that this might be a warning that the belt or tensioner needs replacing.

So...rather than wait for it to snap, I've bought a belt kit and am now looking for a garage in the Bristol or Bath area to fit it.

Any suggestions or recommendations??

Didn't you ask this question a few days ago ?
For my money it will be Smaky every-time, he is in Lyneham and can be contacted through here.

The sound is the variator by the way
