hmmm. i live in Rochdale and work in Ashton. it would've been nice to see it.

about these "records"? excuse me, but what exactly do you have to do to break them? and how is the competition performed? man, i'd prolly whip all your asses at this game. i'm the fastest window cleaner in Greater Manchester. anyone who thinks otherwise is just plain wrong.

nah, i'm just joking really. but i like to think i could handle the pressure of a window cleaning competition (which is just hilarious!), why?

Well, it's time to put your squeegee where your mouth is!  The Fed Show is on 24th April, and there will be an official Guinness World Record rep to oversee our very own competition.

You can see how you fair against the legendary Terry "Turbo" Burrows.  (I'm afraid it sounds like you've thrown down a gauntlet now! and Terry's not one to walk away from a challenge like that)  

He doesn't have that little "S" next to his name for nothing!

Its in Leicestershire, details are on the Fed website

I'll contact Beryl for a copy. While I'm on, I'll remind her she hasn't replied about the room rates at the hotel Roll Eyes
