"I just wanted to say thank you for the incredibly informative and enjoyable carpet and upholstery cleaning course for beginners on the 11th and 12th January. I was a bit apprehensive at first but was soon made to feel very welcome and part of the group.

Derek Bolton, as I am sure you are aware is a one off and I feel you would be hard pressed to find a more knowlegable person in the field. I think you have the mix just right and it made a whole lot of difference by not trying to push the equipment selling side of things.Anyway, enough said, well done.Best regards
