An in­dus­trial cleans­ing equip­ment firm is clean­ing up in the wake of Peter­bor­ough’s busi­ness boom. The­grow­ing num­berof­com­pa­nies mov­ing into the city is of­fer­ing a wealth of op­por­tu­ni­ties for Whit­tle­sey-based clean­ing equip­ment spe­cial­ists Hugh Crane (Clean­ing Equip­ment). And to cope with the new de­mand, the com­pany, which has been in Sta­tion Road for 15 years, has just com­pleted a mul­ti­mil­lion pound re­vamp of the firm’s premises af­ter buy­ing a neigh­bour­ing site.

It has en­abled the firm to cre­ate a large show­room and a Na­tional Train­ing Cen­tre that al­lows cus­tomers to try out­e­quip­ment­be­fore­buy­ing.

Jim Saun­ders man­ager of the Peter­bor­ough premises, said: “Over the last few years we have seen a large in­crease in com­pa­niesin­vest­ing in the area. The­cen­tral­lo­ca­tio­nand the de­mand for ware­hous­ing has seen an in­crease in the de­mand for state of the art clean­ing equip­ment.

“Clearly our pre­vi­ous fa­cil­i­ties didn’t al­low us to cope with this de­mand so the in­vest­ment was es­sen­tial for long term growth.” Parental Re­spon­si­bil­ity means ‘alll the rights, du­ties,, pow­ers, re­sponsi - bil­i­ties…which byy law a par­ent of a child has in re­la­tion to the child’.

This means that it al­lows the par­ent who­h­a­sit, to make de­ci­sions on be­half of the child, for ex­am­ple, where the child will at­tend school, med­i­cal treat­ments, or change of name. If more than one per­son has Parental Re­spon­si­bil­ity for thechild, then­ev­ery­one with it will need to con­sent to the par­tic­u­lar de­ci­sion be­ing made.

A mother ac­quires au­to­matic Parental Re­spon­si­bil­ity through giv­ing birth.

A fa­ther’s ac­qui­si­tion will be au­to­matic if the fa­ther is mar­ried to the mother at the time of the child’s birth. If mother and fa­ther are not mar­ried, fa­ther will ac­quire Parental Re­spon­si­bil­ity in one of three ways: ei­ther by way of be­ing named on the child’s Birth Cer­tifi­cate (as long as the child was born af­ter 15th De­cem­ber 2003); by way of agree­ment with mother called a Parental Re­spon­si­bil­ity Agree­ment; or by way of Court Or­der.

Try­ing out some of the equip­ment at Hugh Crane’s Na­tional Train­ing Cen­tre, in Whit­tle­sey.
