Got hub and rim, need it to be built. Was given £30 price, although not sure if that includes the price of the spokes. Seems ok?
Say... That's a nice bike..

    i wouldnt think that includes spokes, tevre around 75p £1 each.

    £30 is a bit steep if it doesn't include spokes, but it does depend on the final quality of the build. Generally the longer it takes the better it'll be, but the person does need to know what they're doing.

    FWIW cheapest spokes are about 40p each - try Velomax.co.uk and doubt they're included in the price.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
