Our team is highly skilled and is the key to our success and we look forward to another 20 years serving the people of Stafford.”

Catriona Berry, brand operations manager for Merry Maids added: “It’s fantastic that Barbara and her team have reached this milestone and it is evidence that a local business offering a local service can succeed. Barbara, Ian and Helen are committed to developing the Merry Maids brand and are a real credit to the wider franchise network.”
