Question Cam belt and battery change

I've just bought a subaru impreza - 2007, 60-odd thousand miles etc. I am going to book it in for a service soon, and am aware the cam belt is likely going to need changing (the dealers knocked 500 off the price in return for foregoing the servicing, they did give it an MOT though). However, what I also didn't realize when buying it is that the battery has been a bit of a fob-off and (according to my uncle) only holds sufficient enough power for a smart car!!!

Obviously I am going to have to replace this as well. Being the first subaru I've owned, and also the first car where I'm needing to do repairs more than just swapping out the wiper blades, can anyone give me an estimation of how much I'm likely to end up paying, and also what sort of mechanic they use?? I'm in Surrey in the UK, and have used my local mechanics just for MOT's and the odd blade swap-out etc as previously mentioned. This car is alot more specialised than anything I've given to them before, so I want to make sure I'm dealing with the right guys BUT also not getting ripped off (I didn't pickup on the fact of the low battery power, so you can see how easy it would be to scam me!!!!).
