Changing Light Bulb (interior) - high part on ceiling

Peter from Fairfield

I have to replace light bulb in a recessed light as per photos below in a hard to reach area on ceiling in lounge - I estimate 10 or 12 feet high - need someone with a ladder to get up to do this task and I don't know if it needs a halogen bulb or LED.

I have to replace light bulb in a recessed light as per photos below in a hard to reach area on ceiling in lounge - I estimate 10 or 12 feet high - need someone with a ladder to get up to do this task and I don't know if it needs a halogen bulb or LED.
Can anyone recommend an electrician who could do this small job for me - or can someone else with a suitable ladder come around to help?
I will pay for your time.
I'm retired and cannot get up ladders like I used to

Passengers using Wellington Airport can expect to be bussed to their aircraft during a billion-dollar revamp.
The 20-year redevelopment will also involve the airport effectively flipping its international and regional terminals. The northern terminal will be used for regional flights instead of the current international flights and the main terminal will be extended to the south and redesigned to cater for international and domestic flights. The airport has also confirmed the $31 million purchase of Miramar golf course, with the land to be used for additional aircraft parking.

Hi Neighbours, while waiting for the next Rugby World Cup match would you jump on board a real life Mario Kart?

When we heard that it was possible to experience real life Mario Kart in Tokyo with Maricar, we just had to visit. Join us as we dress up as Mario, jump in our go-kart and cruise through Tokyo. We speed past Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and the super famous Shibuya crossing. We didn't get the chance to throw any green shells or banana peels but this is definitely one of the most fun experiences in Tokyo.
