Some have already booked that summer break, some are just going or just back from the annual ski trip and others are thinking about a quick weekend to the local spa resort, Slieve Donard, Newcastle.

I am just back from a great Karcher dealer conference in Stuttgart, Germany. Thank you Karcher for treating us like kings and queens, sorting out alternative flights when BA cancelled for no reason and for launching us into 2017 with a raft of new and exciting products. My plans for 2017 are pretty much set already, at least from a business point of view, new products, new launches, new staff and this week a celebration with two members of staff who have been with me for 25 years. Congratulations to Norman and Derek who have been 25 years on the roads of Northern Ireland assisting customers and flying the company flag.
