    Just joined. I am on the wrong side of fifty and having changed direction recently am struggling to get a job. Way back in the early 90's (during the last century!) I had a window cleaning business and have decided to try and get back into it in order to generate some income!
    Never had water fed poles first time around so they will come in handy and save me climbing ladders :) (could tell a few stories about those too - still have nightmares about working from the top of a triple extension!). Just getting everything all set up at the moment and I'm based in Somerset.

    Hmmmm.....not quite as fit and a bit heavier this time! Last time I ended up running quite a profitable business with three vans doing a mixture of commercial and domestic all off ladders, that was when I was young and full of ambition ;) Now older and wiser, looking just to bring in some sort of income. Part of me is looking forward to it and part is not ha ha!
