I've a few things I need changing on my site.

I can do most stuff but a few things are perplexing me and whilst I know someone who's a friend of a friend etc I don't want to hand it to someone who isn't really that clued up about it.

I know that there are some places on the internet where people sell their time to do this sort of thing, does anyone have any suggestions?

I think you should have this thread renamed :)
I use Dreamweaver for site changes.

On that note - I've got someone I can ask if I run into trouble or google it.
And I'm on a laptop forum that I can ask on...

But do change your title into "where to get help" ;)

Ask a moderator if they'll do it?

1: I'd like the menu on the left to stay static whilst the gallery flows underneath (so the menu stays on the screen at all times).
2: I'd like the images to auto resize to suit the screen or call on a resized version.
3: The arrows in the top right hand corner to be underneath the gallery (in a more obvious place basically or to be replaced by something easier to use).

I can do the basic CSS changes but looking at the whole site pragmatically is something I can't quite figure out.

At a quick guess... menu -> floating CSS sounds like it (But I am NOT a web designer)
By the way - this site is good for menu's that you can use :)

I used one for my math's site (not in my sig)

Edit:
Why did you make your site wide?
I personally find it rather - ehm - unwieldly - not to say its bad - there is a lot of personal choice and I'm very conservative - but I find it a tad - hmm...

What you could do is use PHP to change the photographs - so that you stay on the same site - but the image is changed.
(That's what I've become to be quite keen on myself :D and use)

Thanks, will give it a go but, god my eyes.
I failed my maths GCSE 4 times and my short term memory is shot.

Good luck :)

Oh, and maths is an odd one - it is the most logical subject on earth - the purest of the pure sciences - and still - some people are good at it, some just aren't.

So, some like it, some don't - don't worry.

I do my own. It helps somewhat that I prefer relative simplicity to begin with, so what I want usually isn't all that difficult. Usually.

On occasions that I have expanded into new territory, and needed some help, I have found people here and a couple other forums to be most knowledgeable and helpful.
