Did you know?
It is considered lucky to have a Chimney Sweep at your wedding. The tradition goes back 200 years when a sweep saved the life of George III and the king decreed sweeps were the bearers of good fortune
Chelmondiston chimney sweep Nigel Spinks from Chim-Chimney offers this service, usually on his old fashioned bike, when he is not sweeping, or installing log burners.
