When in doubt Gripfill stick plenty on and bob's your uncle! you really want to pre drill and screw it down but get yourself a skeleton gun b&q and some gripfill or similar and get plenty on the bottom of your wood,this is a bit rough but you can do that yourself! If you ever need to fix anything to brick/stone etc you will need a hammer drill,7mm masonary bit, some brown plugs,and screws which are long enough to go through the thing your fixing and past any gap inbetween and into the wall/stone at least 40mm(the length of a brown plug).The screws to match this just ask for 8s or 10s(that is the size of the screw head).Example time----Fit a curtain batten to a plastered wall---Batten is 20mm thick so 20+40(plug) so for that you'll want 2"" screws 50mm stay a little under the overall depth as the screw will sink into the wood!!!! A well over the top answer for you there.
