We recently had a new window installed. The old one has a horrible plastic trim around it, which the new one does not. I now have this small patch of wall that needs to be patched up.

Not entirely sure how to do it. I've attached some photos.

Would filler be sufficient.

It is a lathe and plaster wall, by the way.

Thanks

To get the smooth finish you are doubtless seeking, (professional quality) plastering, rather than filler might be more appropriate.

Hi,

Thanks for the response.

Yeah, I was wondering whether it is too small a job for a plasterer to take. I usually find it hard to find a tradesman for small jobs, to be honest.

So you think the two options are filler or get a plasterer in?

You might find a "handyman" service which would be able to do a small job for a reasonable price, or you could you could try yourself using filler or plaster.
