The Story so far….
The first seeds for Bluebell Handyman and Gardening Services were sown in April 2014.
With a half finished novel languishing in the drawer, Claire felt that she had had enough of being sat behind a desk for almost 40 hours a week and in traffic jams for 2 hours a day with no hope of ever having the time to finish it! After much discussion she decided to take the leap and give up the office job, finally giving her time to complete the book.
However, soon word spread around family and friends that Claire might have some spare time on her hands! Requests for help with gardening (already a lifelong hobby), decorating and dog sitting began to come in.
In between that and finally completing the novel (Skyecliffe – available on Kindle through Amazon) Claire has never looked back.
They christened their venture “Bluebell Garden Services”, mainly due to the little blue van which they bought with the proceeds from the sale of Simon’s beloved Vespa.
So – here they are over 2 years later and Claire is as busy as ever having built up a loyal and growing customer base. With new requests coming in all the time, they have made the huge decision to expand the business. Simon has given up his job to become the “Handyman” in the newly named Bluebell Handyman and Gardening Services.
Simon, a skilled engineer has worked for various companies in Hull for over 30 years, but he too wanted to get out from behind the desk. In his spare time he has renovated and worked on several houses, thoroughly enjoying working with his hands and wanted to put his skills to good use.
“Requests for jobs were increasing and the chance to work together as a team was one that we both wanted to grab with both hands. We are now able to take on bigger and more challenging jobs, utilising Simon’s many skills and vast experience”.
