Corona – A little help….

Some  of the kind offers being made by our business community  – and a little government relief.


Electrical Breakdown help

I would like to offer, for a 3 month period, free Electrical call outs to anyone within Eastington, to include one hour of labour.

This would be for any loss of power or any dangerous situations. It does not include materials, which would be charged at cost. In a time of need, this may give people some security, and avoid any journeys for contractors.

I already have an approved safe working system should any customer be in self isolation, and obviously if isolated myself the terms would no longer exist. I am a fully qualified approved contractor, who now as a bit more time available due to the closures of Colleges. I sincerely hope I can help anyone who may require these services..
