What makes an Electrician?

How are electricians made?


In the UK electricians have traditionally gained their initial training and experience through an apprenticeship scheme that combines formal courses and examinations with a period of at least 3 years working under the guidance of a qualified electrician.

Garden Lighting in Cambridge

Garden Lighting in Cambridge

We recently just finished a stunning lighting design and installation to a customers garden in Cambridge


The project was very different from out usual garden lighting projects. The garden was already finished and planted! So we couldn't dig and bury cables into positions and we also had to be careful about damaging plants and corrugated piping

Electrical Hazards in the home

Research available from the electrical safety body, the NICEIC, has found that the public are mostly unaware of the electrical dangers lurking in their homes. Householders that were questioned had electrical hazards in their homes including exposed bare wires, loose cables, old wiring and overloaded sockets


Appliance Safety

Many house holders in Huntingdon often ring me to ask if there is a problem with their electrical supply. Understandably they are not sure if it is safe to continue to use their electrical appliances at home or if they should call an electrician
