Finally the cold weather has arrived, although even this month had a few days where t shirts seemed more appropriate than thermals. At the start of the month and the year, we welcomed Darren Hills into the company, as detailed in my previous blog. I am very optimistic that Darren will develop into a first [...]

February 2014 was a bit of a mixed month really. After a period of sustained wet weather, where flooding seemed to be the biggest risk, the weather finally calmed down towards the end of the month and we had some truly delightful spring like days. I don’t remember any days of early morning ice scraping [...]

This week is very exciting for us at GuardHome as it sees work starting on our new offices. After almost ten years  of running my business from a very cosy room in my home, I have decided we are sufficiently mature  to have our own offices. Some of the local residents may already have seen [...]
