With the internet now being the main way we find out about information and choose services on everything from holidays, items to purchase and local service companies, it is becoming increasingly important that we are able to read reviews / testimonials from the people who have used the services of those companies and what they thought.
I have to say I am now one of those people that will read reviews whether it be for a hotel, a restaurant, items of clothing, any other shopping item or a local company that I may need to carry out repairs or services in my own home.
That is why we made the decision to create a page on our own website to start sharing all the reviews/testimonials that our own clients have been willing for us to share. This enables any new or prospective clients to read them and see the level of service they can expect from us. We ask each client that we work with to complete a questionnaire on the every aspect of the service we have provided. This gives us essential feedback to ensure that we continue to offer only the highest levels of service. We only ever put on our website the testimonials that our clients have specifically signed to agree to being used. As with all personal information being shown there are specific Data Protection rules that must be adhered too.
Well I am delighted to say we have now put on our website client review / service rating number 600 of which I am extremely proud of.
We have testimonials from both our commercial and domestic customers examples of both are below:
Holly Western, Property Manager – Lesters Property Management.
“We have been using Prestige Cleaning Services for a few years now. I’ve always found Leisa and her team, professional, friendly and ready to help, even with very short notice! I would highly recommend Prestige Cleaning Services for oven and carpet cleaning.”
Mr Quigley – British Bakels Ltd
“Many thanks for another first class job”
Mrs K Gillies
“Excellent service. Excellent technician. Carpet much cleaner than we ever expected. Oven left gleaming after an excellent clean.”
“Just perfectly prestigiously cleaned!”
It is very important to us as a family run, independent business that we offer a high level of service so that our clients want to recommend our services to family and friends or come back to us to have further work carried out. The most important form of marketing to us are the recommendations from our clients.
If you have any questions or you would like have a quotation or would like to book an appointment then please do call Leisa on 0800 228 9574 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
What is Pancake Day?
The traditional name for Pancake Day is Shrove Tuesday and it is the last day before the Christian festival of Lent. Lent is the festival leading up to Easter Sunday. In previous times Shrove comes from the word “Shrive” which means to confess sot Shrove Tuesday was traditionally the day to confess your sins and receive absolution before Lent began.
Lent is the period of time to give things up “I am giving it up for Lent is the common phrase still heard”. Traditionally fats, eggs and milky foods were forbidden during Lent which is why on Shrove Tuesday pancakes were made and eaten as it was a way of using up those specific ingredients and the last day to indulge, which is where the name Pancake Day came from.
When is Pancake Day?
Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday and is the final day before the start of Lent. Pancake Day always falls 47 days before Easter Sunday so the date changes each year. Pancake Day falls between the 3rd February and the 9th March.
What is a pancake?
A pancake is a thin flat cake of batter which is fried on both sides in a frying pan. It can be served with sweet or savoury fillings.
Still in some parts of the UK the festive tradition is the Pancake Race which is where people with frying pans run through the streets in a race tossing pancakes into the air and catching them again in the frying pan.
Other countries names for Pancake Day
In Spain Pancake Day is “martes de carnival”
In France Pancake Day is “jour de crepes”
In Italy Pancake Day is “giorno pancake”
In Sweden Pancake Day is “pannkaka dag”
A pancake recipe I always use with excellent results is a Delia Smith recipe a link for this is below

With only a few days to go until Valentine’s Day, it is not too late to plan something extra special for the loved one in your life.
The simplest option would be to book a table at a local restaurant or pub, but why not make that extra special effort this year and surprise her by cooking her a Valentine’s meal for just the two of you and enjoy having a lovely romantic evening in the comfort of your own home.
The meal does not have to be complicated and does not even need to be a full three course menu a simple main course prepared and oven cooked by you will show her just how much you care.
Start by sending her an invitation a couple of days before to surprise her and start the build up for a special romantic evening.
Laying a romantic table arrangement is an important part of setting the scene for a romantic meal.
Below are a few of our ideas on laying a romantic table arrangement:
- Use a table cloth as this always dresses up a dining table beautifully
- Use napkins, if they match the table cloth great, but if not how about using red paper or cotton napkins to continue with the romantic theme
- Candles or tea lights on the table always give a romantic feel, however it is important to remember to never leave burning candles unattended
- A single red rose in a vase or if you are feeling extravagant a bunch of red roses as a centre piece in the middle on the table
- Table confetti always looks really effective and comes in all sorts of shapes and designs or if you are feeling particularly extravagant you could always use red rose petals
- A couple of delicious handmade chocolates placed on her table setting
- Chilled Champagne or Prosecco is always a nice way to celebrate a wonderful evening
When you have spent the time and effort on cooking that romantic meal for your loved one the last thing you want the next day is for either of you to have to clean the oven, grill or hob after your culinary expertise has been at work. So to finish off the valentine’s weekend tell her you will arrange for the oven, grill and hob to be cleaned so she doesn’t have too.
Call Leisa on 0800 228 9574 or email firstname.lastname@example.org who will be more than happy to provide you with a quotation or book an oven cleaning appointment for you.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
