Nick Hewitt launched his window cleaning business last summer after being made redundant.

The decision to go it alone has paid off – Mr Hewitt has around 350 regular customers all over Norfolk and fits 60 to 65 jobs a week into his diary.

Most of his clients are domestic but he also serves commercial clients in Norwich.

“I am nearly full up now, business is fantastic, but I will fit people in if they come to me,” he said.

“It is mainly domestic but I have a few commercial jobs.”

Before launching his own business Mr Hewitt worked as a print manager at newspaper publisher Archant in Norwich, where he had worked for 20 years.

After leaving the company he decided on a change of career and purchased a mobile window cleaning van.

He received a start-up grant and business training from Broadland District Council.
