Who is The Handyman?

Thanks for stopping by.

My name's Gary Newson. I grew up in Medway, and have been living in Swale for almost a decade now. I'm a devoted husband and proud father too.

Throughout my working life, I've earned experience and knowledge both in theory and in practice. Now, I'm offering my services as a handyman to the local community.



As a child, I used to work in my father's bed shop during the school holidays to earn extra pocket money. It wasn't long before I was able to put bedsteads and other bedroom furniture together at a very efficient rate.



I left school at 16, and started an apprenticeship at GEC Avionics. Here, I gained invaluable hands on experience, not just in electrical work, but also in metalwork. Although I never completed the apprenticeship (most 16 year olds have no idea what they want to do for a living) I took my experience to a job in a sign factory, where after just a few months, I became Electrical/Assembly Workshop Supervisor.



After 15 years of this, I fancied having a go at something else. I spent 10 years in farming. This was a lot of fun, and the skills and knowledge that I brought with me, made me an invaluable individual. Someone who could be left alone to get on with a job, whether that be building a fence or fixing a broken down tractor in a field.

Of course, I picked up more experience during my time in farming, including passing exams for handling dangerous chemicals and spraying pesticides.



That just about brings me up to present day. I'm now running my own business, putting all my skills and ingenuity in one big tool bag to make a difference to people in my local area of Swale, Maidstone, Medway and Thanet. I've always enjoyed being thought of as the "man who can" in my work, now I'm taking that to the community.



I offer a variety of services domestically and commercially at very reasonable prices. I come with a wealth of experience in basic electrical work and plumbing, woodwork and metalwork, deep clean carpet shampooing, window cleaning, door hanging, changing locks, and assembling flat pack furniture.



Just added! Pest Control. In addition to all the above, I am now able to commence battle against any unwanted houseguests you may have acquired, wasps, hornets (the human kind are your problem).

Take a look around my site. If you would like a quote from me for any forthcoming work, simply go to my Contact page, and I'll be in touch as soon as I can. Once again, thanks for stopping by!
