Clean Shield MD Kathy Price & I were pleased to have been invited to a recent discussion chaired by Gloucester MP Richard Graham. Many local businesses sent representatives to the seminar held at Pure Offices at Kestrel Court, Gloucester.

Clean Shield MD Kathy Price said “We have a reputation in this country of making the best of things, whatever life throws at us, and I am sure that we will come out of this process as a stronger nation”.
