    I know I've left the door open for complete smut, but how would you fill deep holes like this? These are from old and now disconnected (done by electrician) electrical interfaces.

    Brush out dust and loose debris

    Seal cut out with PVA diluted 1-5 with water - allow to dry

    Fill with bonding plaster, can whack it in at around 40mm depth in one hit, press in well to compact, level off with a trowel or damp batten of wood

    Can also fill with a mix of plaster board and bonding plaster if you have any scraps, just seal cut out as above, bonding plaster, PB, bonding plaster, level off

    From your previous post looks like your having the walls skimmed (?) so finish doesn’t need to be super fantastic at this stage ?
