TWO Daventry women have launched a new DIY service.

Do It Yourself Dames is aimed specifically at providing handiman and DIY services for local women.

The company has been set up by single mums Julie Young and Lorna Merricks.

Julie said: “We decided to set up the business because we had a few friends and other people asking for help.

“Our friends know we can do DIY and they’ve asked us to help with all sorts of things.

“It can be intimidating and some single women, or women at home on their own, can find it scary to have a strange man come into their home to do work, so the idea is that they can now call us and get a women in to do the work.

“We know there’s demand for it out there.

“We’ll do everything DIY related, from painting and decorating, to putting up shelves and gardening.

“I’ve even painted murals at one of the town’s schools as well.

“We just want to get out there and help out girls.”

The pair can be contacted on 07944 953835 or 07929 054342.
