What i want it to do is if in the text box a user puts in plumber and postcode ha6 8TP then bring back all the plumbers in that postcode.

Please help

Thanks,

The google maps places api is what you are looking for i believe, http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/places/

Give that a look and let me know if that isn't what you had in mind.
