|The Last Hurdle
Welcome to our tete-a-tete, designed to keep you up to date with all our latest news, views and advice.Personal message from Jules Thomas Well now where did January go? It certainly didn’t take us long to get back into the swing of things after the Christmas break and it looks like a fair number of people have had the same thoughts as us. 2012 – let’s crack on! We had a record number of enquiries this month and subsequently a nice increase in our client base.
Those who follow me on Facebook Linkedin and Twitter have seen some of the great announcements we have made already this year, one in particular bears repeating:
I am extremely proud to announce that Sarah Hodgkins has joined The Last Hurdle team. I am sure you will join me in welcoming Sarah. I for one am very excited to have her with us!

Spotlight – Time For You – Northants
The Last Hurdle spotlights are here to highlight local businesses that are closely connected with or are clients of ours.
We are proud to be the Northamptonshire branch for the UK’s premier domestic cleaning franchise operation, Time For You. The Time For You Domestic Cleaning Company has over 165 local franchised business owners, currently cleaning over 12,000 homes across the UK on a weekly basis.
We provide honest, reliable and affordable domestic cleaners to clean and care for your home. Our excellent, professional home cleaning service is confidently offered at highly competitive rates. We offer you the same dedicated home cleaner each visit and all cleaners are referenced and insured. We visit and vet all our cleaners in their own homes before introducing them to our clients. We believe life is too short to spend it cleaning, so let us take the strain from you.
Let Time For You home cleaning give you that most precious commodity: TIME! After all time is finite, isn’t it?
Ann Brebner & Claire Elliott, Franchisees
Our weekly, fortnightly or monthly home cleaning service is provided by fully-vetted, fully-insured cleaners at very competitive rates.
You will receive the same cleaner each visit and Time For You will always find an immediate temporary replacement if your cleaner cannot be with you for any reason, guaranteeing that you will never be without a cleaning service.
