Chimney Sweep

A friend of mine has recently moved house and the chimney needs sweeping they think.

Does anyone know of a reliable, friendly and inexpensive chimney sweep who they could recommend.

Many thanks Steve

I`ll pass the information onto my friend for both people. I think it will probably be a case of who answers the telephone first or who is available the quickest.

Many thanks for both replies.

All you have to do is SEARCH +ALF or +CHIMNEY and it will take you straight to it.
Do not forget to put the plus (+) sign in front.

Thanks for finding Mr Jacksons photo, it's a great picture, us kids would wait for what seemed like ages to see his brush come out the top of the chimney.
