Hi everyone

We have had our vacuum cleaner break after 13 years of use so we purchased another 2nd hand.
Unfortunately that didn't last 1 use....

Does anybody have an old vacuum they are no longer using by any chance?
I'm wanting one to the clean house as my children have typical allergies which are helped hugely by regular vacuuming.

We celebrate your child’s maths and English achievements, big and small. Tutoring at NumberWorks’nWords is based on success. Each child feels more confident about themselves as a learner when they experience success. Tutors provide positive interaction, certificates are awarded and centre-wide celebration is given when students move up a level. You may have been in the centre and heard the clapping and cheering when this happens. It’s so rewarding to see the smiles on the children’s faces and how proud they are of their achievements.
