    Thought this might be of use to those of you working in the tight streets. Cambridge is a nightmare in the old terrace streets. Lots of restricted/residents parking. All credit to the traffic wardens of the city, they do a good job and I have never had any problems with them. I always stick a note on my dashboard saying where I'm working, and mentioning that its front and back, just in case they don't see a ladder and think its someone pulling a fast one. Fed up of writing notes I had a custom sign made up that I can use a dryboard marker on....

    Nice and bright so it doesn't get lost in the clutter on my dashboard.

    Heres the ebay link for the place that made it, absolute bargain, I didnt even bother making an offer; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/1-CU...00068&clkid=621399519433207569&_qi=RTM2108002
    Friendly emails,the guy even uses one himself for sign installs. It was at my door 2 days later. :thumbsup:

    I've had a bit of time on my hands today so I was thinking of other possibilities. I fancy getting a swingboard sign made up for when I do pressure washing jobs etc.

    I have a sandwich board that I have made up, next year there are 3 lush villages near me (cricket greens and tea cakes) that have village halls, committees and annual shows.

    I plan to sponsor their programs next year to get my name on the front of the booklets that go through every door in the villages and also have a stand with leaflets, inquiry forms, etc at their annual village fairs.

    Going to hire a couple of busty girls in company t-shirts a size too small and short shorts to walk around the events handing out my leaflets. :))
