I've got some small usual stone chips on my car and the odd scratch on the back I'd like to get sorted this year , can any one recommend a good paint repair place and know roughly what cost I'm going to be looking at . I have maybe 4 - 5 tiny stone chips and a scratch on the bumper 2 - 3 inch long .
I'd attempt the repair myself but I can always see my repairs and the car is our pride and joy I'd rather get it done right . Any help Much appreciated

go to the local dealership and ask for the MOBILE number for their dent man.

because then he can do it cash without his office knowing....

I usually use a local body shop for such work, they usually do these little jobs at a good price. Someone dented my sill in once and he pulled it out and painted it fir 150. I used to use chips away in the past too as a friend had a franchise. Someone smacked my car with a door last year and my usual guy couldn't do it due to ill health. As it was a dent and a scratch chips away wouldn't do the dent and the dent company wouldn't do the scratch so I ended up with auto restore. Part of auto glass. Not cheap but they gave a fixed price over the phone, did it at work by erecting a huge fume extracted tent to keep it all clean and did a great job. Cost over 300 though :/
