About A Sweep +
Colin is a Scottish although he has lived in England for longer than he lived in Scotland! He is married with one son. His father recently moved from Scotland and settled on the Devon Cornwall border, some thirteen miles from Colin's home.
Colin's career background is mainly in demolition, as a hands-on supervisor. Due to the recession, Colin was made redundant in 2009. He found another job in Demolition only to be laid off again. This was a terrible blow for him, as he had always worked, and been a hard worker.
Colin found that suddenly he had a lot of thinking time on his hands and with few opportunities for gainful employment due to living in such a rural area, he decided he wanted to train as a chimney sweep. So with a lot of support from his father and his wife (me) that's what he did, - and he's never looked back!
Colin has often been asked, "Do you know anyone that can cut back my hedge?" Or "Do you know anyone who can take down my green house?" In fact he was asked so many times, that he decided to take on some of the jobs he knew he could do, himself. As Chimney Sweeping is for the most part, seasonal work-this works out well for Colin.
With no fixed hours of work, Colin can accommodate
very early starts, late finishes, and weekends to fit in with your
Colin covers an area of approximately 20 miles East, South And West,
and 15 miles North from his home in Black Torrington.
However he is flexible, so just ask!
