Compare your plant to Lysimachia punctata.

Looks like Lysimachia punctata (yellow loosestrife) to me.

Thanks you so much, had a look this is definitely it. Going to try bring a cutting on now that I know what it is ( fingers crossed ).

A cutting from the stem is not likely to be successful but any piece you can get from the base of the plant with a bit of root attached will grow. It spreads easily and is extremely hardy. I am sure your neighbour would give you a little bit. That's all you'll need.
