Hire firm cleans up as businesses pour in
New arrivals provide more opportunities for one city company
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.
