Cleaners R Us East Anglia Ltd is run by Leigh and Russy Cole along with Karen Mann who is the Office Manager. We have been providing a trusted cleaning services in Norfolk and North Suffolk since 2003.  We provide reliable, police checked, vetted, insured, honest and dedicated cleaners to householders in need of assistance all over Norfolk and North Suffolk, at an affordable cost.

Our vetting process is, we believe, second to none.  It involves a personal visit by us to the cleaner’s home, the comprehensive checking of ID, the taking up of references, a police-check, then a visit by the cleaner to our own home where fundamental cleaning practices are tested and reinforced, together with expected behaviour and health and safety issues. 

On top of all that, the householder then gets a chance to meet the cleaner before the cleaner becomes their cleaner.  That cleaner then remains their cleaner on a regular basis.

The cleaners benefit by being matched to the specific requirements of each householder, thus ensuring that everyone is happy.  Eg ironing and bed-making can also be a part of the service, if required.

Although we have clients who have been with us almost from when we started and are still receiving a regular weekly clean, we recognise that things change and so we are now able to also offer fortnightly and monthly cleaning services as well.  If circumstances change the other way and more hours are required then we are happy to help.

If you have any questions at any time, then again, we are happy to help.

We also turn our hand to one-off cleans, Spring-cleans, deep cleans and end of tenancy cleans on occasion as and when the need arises.

What can I expect during a service visit?

When you call P Goodacre Domestic Appliance Repair, you can expect to receive top quality service at a fair price. We will send out a courteous technician with ample training and experience on your specific appliance. Your technician will thoroughly troubleshoot the appliance to determine the root cause of the problem and then provide you with an estimate for the recommended repair. We carry many replacement parts in our vehicles so it is highly likely your repair will be completed in one visit. We never leave a mess behind and we are always happy to answer your questions in detail.

Why did I receive a lower repair quote from another company ??

I will make every effort to offer fair and competitive prices. One common reason that other companies may quote you a lower price is that they are not actually going to complete the repair as recommended by the manufacturer. For example, instead of replacing the entire control board (as many manufacturers recommend) they may want to just replace one damaged component. This may solve the short term problem, but by leaving the old component in place you may be at risk for future problems. You could also be at risk of voiding your warranty protection by not getting the manufacturer recommended repair.

Back in 2002, in the early days of Google, I began following its hints and tips to get a business started online. I stuck to the rules. I learnt, understood and repeated. By the time I started my lighting business in 2005, it was working. My phone didn’t stop ringing and the orders were flooding in. My customers were finding me on Google.

I learned about the importance of on-page SEO and the posting of regular blogs for my customers to read. Google loved my regular, fresh and original content.

All of this layered online marketing activity meant that my business was being found. It helped propel my website to the top of Google’s rankings for organic search. Customers were reading my blogs and clicking through to my site to buy. I had a successful and credible online business.

15 years on, I want to give back. I understand websites and how they work. I want to share my learnings. I want to share my successes and my failures as well as the knowledge and expertise I have gained by listening to Google.

For my clients now I create websites that convert visitors into customers.

Like to learn more?

Call me now on 01603 383477 and I'll explain how I can help your business to grow.

Chris Crowther spent 42 years of his working life flying aeroplanes and helicopters in various parts of the world, mainly West Africa as Chief Pilot of a helicopter operation, and where his first books were written. After hanging up his flying helmet, he skippered passenger boats on the Norfolk Broads where he now lives with his wife Sue, rowing and sailing while plotting his next “Jack Fellows” adventure.

THE “JACK FELLOWS” SERIES OF MURDER AND MYSTERY

Dastardly deeds are not something you automatically associate with Norfolk, but local author Chris Crowther has gone even further and used the tranquil magic of Broadland as the setting for his series of whodunits.

The sleuth in these stories is Jack Fellows, a navigation ranger with the Broads Authority, who spends his days patrolling the waterways, assisting boaters and enforcing the river by-laws. Like many rangers, he has a police background, in his case as a Detective Superintendant with Scotland Yard, and a copper’s instinct that looks beyond the carefree boating to a rather more sinister world of strange happenings and questionable deaths. For Jack, much to the dismay of his long-suffering wife, Audrey, this is just grist to the mill of his investigative skills. And so, amongst marsh and reedbed, old boatyards, dilapidated windpumps and unique wildlife, wrongdoers are pursued, though with many a twist en route, to a solution that will challenge every armchair detective until the very last page.

WATERPROOF – A brutal murder, but the police soon have their man . . . or have they?

STILL WATERS – A girl inherits a boatyard from her grandfather . . . except she’s never heard of either before in her life.

THE WATER FROLIC – A joint endeavour might just reconcile two very different communities, until . . .

WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE – How do you solve a crime that had to be impossible in the first place?

MURKY WATERS – The simple contents of a long-lost handbag lead down a trail that becomes ever murkier.

DEAD IN THE WATER – Could a despised new landowner really be the victim of a time-slip?

Located in the North Norfolk village of Roughton, I offer bespoke Guitar Tuition to players of all ages and abilities, whether you're an absolute beginner, an intermediate player who just lacks direction, or an advanced guitarist looking to improve your technique.

My speciality is Classical Guitar, and to date I have entered well in excess of 200 candidates for Trinity College graded examinations, with a 100% pass rate, from initial to grade 8.  Whilst many players love to work towards their grades, some players simply enjoy playing for the love of the music, and tailored lessons mean that these students can learn whatever style inspires them.

Also available are acoustic and rock guitar lessons, particularly useful for those wanting to play in a band or write their own songs.

customerfeedback.jpg

Hi Simon, I would like thank you and share my recent experiences of the cruise you organised. Firstly, we had a wonderful time cruising up to the fjords on the Crown Princess. The ship was absolutely fantastic. The customer service was amongst the best we have ever experienced, the food was out of this world and the variety of things to do kept myself and my family thoroughly entertained. It was an excellent choice by yourself that this would be a worthwhile first time cruise. Most of all though I wanted to thank you for taking the time to research and investigate which would be the best cruise for my family to take. You used your vast cruising experience to identify our needs and you put our minds to rest with superb customer service. You walked us through every step of the booking process and always made yourself available regarding the many questions we had whether it was about the cruise, embarkation and disembarkation or what to do in Norway. The service you offered was just amazing and we would not only consider you first for future cruise bookings but also would highly recommend you to friends and family in the future. Thanks again for everything - Mr and Mrs Gyde

"Having always been sceptical about dealing with travel agents, it took some persuading to use All Things Holiday and Travel. My fears were totally unjustified – Simon asked what we wanted and was able to organise the whole thing.  At every stage, we were given realistic options, with all the relevant information. Once the details were decided, he gave us a time frame and throughout the process, by Email, or phone when necessary, kept me informed and explained what I had to do. We had a wonderful holiday with everything, from the parking, flights, transfers, hotel and the tours we’d booked, going like clockwork. I can honestly recommend All Things Holiday and Travel. The care and attention given to us made everything stress free – and all at a very competitive price. When I’m asked “would you recommend to friends and family” I’ll say 10 (where 1 equals least likely and 10 equals most likely)”  Martin Jones Norwich

"Reflecting on what was an entirely new experience for me, I realised that I might have had less enjoyment from the cruise had I not had the advantage of some expert advice from travel agent Simon Chapman. I wanted to visit the Baltic, but it was Simon who picked Celebrity Silhouette as the right vessel for the inclement weather you can experience even in June.It was Simon who recommended Aqua class - well worth the extra, not least for the marvellous dining experience in the Blue restaurant, with an attentive head water who quickly learned my preferences, and somehow always managed to get my husband and I a table by the large picture windows just a few feet from the sea. And it was Simon who provided knowledgeable advice on shore excursions in places I had never visited before - like St Petersburg, Tallinn and Riga. Five star service Simon" - Susan Grice

"We would like to say a massive thank you for the super cruise you organised for us. It was great to have a personal service from our travel organiser who made sure everything we needed was planned to perfection. The holiday was wonderful and all connections were smooth and faultless , thanks to your superb attention to detail. We would not hesitate to recommend your service to any of our friends who need holiday and booking advice". The Haines family, Norwich

By being sensitive not only to the fabric of the building as well as it’s interior dimensions and flow, we focus on the creation of sustainable and long term design solutions by working closely with our clients and discussing their needs in detail. Intelligently sourced materials and finishes play an important role in making this a reality.

Our aims are to offer 

  • Individual Designs for each client.

  • Skillfully combine architecture and interiors to create individual schemes.
  • Exceed your expectation in design, innovation and level of service.

What is Westacre?  What happens at Westacre and when?  Where is Westacre?  Well, a warm welcome awaits you at Westacre Theatre which has been offering inspiring, inclusive and creative excellence in the heart of West Norfolk for over a quarter of a century.  And Westacre Theatre is probably the only all year-round rural performance venue anywhere in East Anglia.

Why?  You find Theatres in towns and cities – where there are lots of people.  But Westacre is different.  In rolling countryside, Westacre Theatre’s scenic setting comes complete with landscaped lagoon.  In the Summer, the sheltered South-facing terrace hums with audiences eager with anticipation. 

Centrally located just 10 minutes’ drive from Swaffham, 20 minutes from King’s Lynn, and within half an hour of Downham Market, Watton, Dereham, and Fakenham it is easily accessible to most communities in West Norfolk. 

But tucked away in peace and solitude; it remains one of West Norfolk’s best kept secrets.  And once found, everyone always says how lovely it is and ‘Why didn’t we know about Westacre before?’

Westacre attracts all-comers so the volunteers, cast and crew are a happy band performing vital roles in its varied activities.  Many of the team are long-serving troopers; once at Westacre people tend to stay for the friendship and fulfilment. 

West End this is not and nor does it pretend to be.  But The Westacre Theatre Company perform regularly to great acclaim – straight plays of immense integrity and magical musicals too.  As you may expect, Westacre Theatre is more than just a stage.  You can hear every word and see every movement from any of its 80 seats.  The fully-equipped studio theatre is central to its all-inclusive ethos but there are many other parts too.  And the sum of those parts is greater than the converted Chapel where Westacre Theatre was born 25 years ago and is truly a tardis. 

Its own in-house productions are complemented by sourcing the very best Live! and Encore screenings via satellite from the likes of National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare, The Globe and Matthew Bourne.  Fans of mainstream cinema are catered for under the Wednesday Flicks banner showing a carefully selected programme of contemporary films. 

The Riverside Café-Bar serves relaxing drinks, light lunches and simple suppers.  The light and airy Foyer Gallery hosts a continuous back-to-back varied programme of exciting art exhibitions from both up-and-coming and established artists based locally and further afield.  Drama workshops are held weekly and in school holidays for young people from 6 to 18 years old.  Popular art and craft master-classes are all in the repertoire and often over-subscribed.    

There is ample free off-road parking (with surfaced spaces by the door for the less mobile).  A flat floor throughout (including for a universal access loo) goes right to your front row seat in the Studio Theatre.  Give us a look to see what we mean. 

  • W = Wednesday Flicks - The best of contemporary cinema
  • E = Education – Classes in art, crafts and play reading; Bursaries for fortunate students
  • S = Screenings – The satellite link brings world class performances to our full-size screen
  • T = Theatre – Take your pick from well-known favourites or more challenging drama
  • A = Acting – For ages 6 to 18 to create drama without a crisis in weekly drama classes, half term and summer workshops
  • C = Café-Bar – Relaxing drinks at all our performances with light lunches and pre-performance suppers at selected shows – they are very popular so advance booking is wise
  • R = Riverside Walk – A short wander from our sheltered terrace takes you to the tranquil River Nar
  • E = Exhibitions – Artists of all abilities display their latest work in the three distinct spaces open at performance times

Performances and activities are presented in three seasons each year so there is always something new about to take off. www.westacretheatre.com is constantly updated so a visit there will provide you with the pointers you need about what is in store.  But keep checking because fresh productions are being added all the time.  And the value-for-money ticket prices have to be seen to be believed. 

Westacre Theatre is overseen by a charitable foundation so all the support you give to Westacre (just by enjoying a cup of freshly brewed filter coffee, or acquiring that piece of art which caught the corner of your eye) will all go to the worthwhile cause of keeping Westacre Theatre sustainable and alive for the next generation.  The cast and crew is a tiny team but they certainly make it all happen.  Now they are on your radar, do different and try the Theatre that is different too.

Warm, encouraging and supportive, I’m a professional vocal coach and guitar teacher. With years of recording, touring and performing experience, I love sharing my skills and passion for music, offering singing and guitar lessons in Norwich, Norfolk, UK for all ages.

I can tailor the lesson for you in a fun, relaxed environment that also ensure you’re equipped with a range of techniques.

Vocal Coach

I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or performance and learn various vocal techniques and exercises. You can also record your vocals and make quality demo recordings. I can also help you with your nerves, breathing and help build your confidence. In 2015 one of my talented vocal students, Breeze Redwine, won the Pre Teen Award at TeenStar, the UK’s biggest search for teenage and pre-teen singers at Birmingham’s NEC. She also achieved the highest score of the night from the prestigious industry judges and beautifully performed my song ‘Here Alone’

In 2016 she released her debut single called ‘Courage’ which I wrote for her.  The music video has had thousands of views on YouTube and is released on iTunes through Proper.

She also recently won many awards at the World Championships of Performing Arts, an international performing arts talent competition and educational experience held annually in Hollywood. Among her many achievements, Breeze won 4 Golds, 2 Silvers and Overall Champion twice. She also won an Industry Award, meaning she is most likely to make it in the music industry.  

“Lisa has been an amazing vocal coach to my daughter Breeze. She has been having lessons for over 2 years and worked wonders with Breeze’s confidence, performance, breath control and vocal ability. She’s guided her through difficult songs and different styles while being constantly supportive and encouraging as well as regularly sending exercises and backing tracks. She has provided invaluable guidance and support for when Breeze has had major auditions in London and across the UK and Breeze recently won the Pre Teen Award at the prestigious national Teen Star competition at Birmingham’s NEC. Lisa has also been teaching Breeze guitar and she is already on her way to playing lots of songs. Thank you Lisa. We couldn’t have done it without you.” Jackie Redwine

Guitar Lessons and Ukulele

My guitar and ukulele lessons are fun and enjoyable. Focussing on those beginning the guitar or those aiming to follow the singer/songwriter path like myself, I ensure lessons are built around your aims and can teach you your favourite songs and riffs so that you’ll learn quickly.

Singing and guitar lessons take place in my comfortable, fully equipped teaching room in the golden triangle area of Norwich, where on street parking permits are provided.

Flexible times, competitive prices.

To find out more please e-mail parrotrecords@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you and would be happy to help with any of your queries.

I’d love to hear from you and will be happy to help with any queries.

Testimonials

“Since having singing lessons with Lisa, I’ve noticed dramatic changes in my voice, for example I always used to sing from my throat and I’d run out of breath very, very quickly. Lisa has sent me vocal exercises and backing tracks to practise at home, which I find very useful in preparation for the next lesson. It’s a great hobby, and it’s something that I look forward to doing each fortnight, which is quite funny because I actually have a singing phobia, but Lisa’s teaching style puts me at ease. Ann Marie Harrison

 ”Lisa has really helped me with my vocals and given me so much more confidence with my singing. She has shown me some great vocal techniques which have really improved my singing.” Kate Yuill

“Before I started having singing sessions with Lisa, I didn’t feel confident anymore at my ability to sing. Since having the sessions with Lisa, she has helped me to gain my confidence back, she is friendly and approachable. She has shown me how to strengthen my breathing skills and support my core vocal ability and head voice. Sharing her vocal warm ups and techniques to attempt some challenging songs…Lisa is helping me to prepare for a big audition and thanks to Lisa the song I have chosen is broadening my vocal ability to a higher standard, Lisa is being patient and providing me with some really supportive feedback to progress further.” Rachael Francis

“My 10 year old daughter, Saskia, has been having guitar and singing lessons with Lisa. Within weeks of starting she went from not being able to play a thing to singing and playing many of her favourite songs.  Since then she has gone from strength to strength.  Lisa has been a real inspiration to Saskia.  She knows how to connect with children.  She’s vibrant and fun but at the same time nurturing and attentive.  It’s a real pleasure to hear my daughter perform.  Thanks Lisa.” Kerry Williams

“I have been attending vocal lessons with Lisa for about a year now, as a student at Access To Music I was looking for some extra support with my vocals. Lisa is honest, patient and understanding of my vocal needs. I have learnt what my voice is capable of, breathing technique’s and warm up exercise’s. All of these contribute to my new found confidence with regards to my singing. I would highly recommend Lisa for all your vocal needs.” Karl Moore
