Get organised for 2019 in the New Forest!
It's time to tick things off your 'to do' list with help from local New Forest businesses!
Now the festivities are done and dusted, take a quiet moment out to plan for the New Year. If you’re anything like us, a ‘to do’ list - or several lists - follows you around and never seems to get any shorter!
Our New Year’s Resolution is to tick our 'to do' lists in 2019, with a little help from some of the fabulous businesses we have here in the New Forest and Lymington area…
Get your house in order!
Sort our your heating!
Aqua Plumbing & Heating Services have been an expert, friendly and reliable plumbing and heating service to customers for 25 years. Get your boiler serviced every year rather than risking issues when the cold weather snaps! And get in touch for all your other plumbing and heating requirements.
With temperatures set to drop, warm up your home with a new stove from the New Forest Woodturning Centre - who also currently have a January SALE!
Meanwhile, Cooling & Heating Solutions can provide heating solutions (and air conditioning) on either a temporary or longer term basis.
Clean those windows and gutters!
Christie’s Window & Gutter Cleaning Services' fleet of vans each carry all the equipment needed to provide high level window and gutter cleaning services for domestic and business customers. Blocked gutters can cause issues with damp walls and worse. Christie's have invested in brilliant high-level window cleaning and gutter cleaning equipment powered by SpaceVac which help them reach all those high up, out of reach areas. Definitely worth a call!
