This next piece I should have put in a month ago and for the late entry I must apologise to Ray Dean. He has been a window cleaner in Robertsbridge and area for the past 50 years as of the beginning of September just gone. The first house he ever went to was in Bellhurst Road and he has over the years cleaned many a pane in the village. We would just like to say Congratulations and well done for continuing to keep part of the High Street windows sparkling after all this time. I am sure there have been many changes since he started as a young man. If you would like Ray to sparkle your windows he is usually in the village on a Thursday morning, just look out for him and his ladder.
