Q  Need desperately to get the windows in my villa cleaned.  Can you recommend any good window cleaning companies?

A You could try a company called Clearwater who use lightweight telescopic poles that can reach to heights of 60ft.  I used them the other week and they had a special offer on cleaning windows (2 for 1).

It’s the end of term and most children have just about made it to the last day with uniform intact all be it with paint decorating their shirts but for most a new uniform will definitely have to be purchased on return from holiday.

Q Hello Louise. Would you happen to know of a swimming pool where public can access and where ladies are comfortable to swim? preferably close to Warqaa, Mirdif, International City. If not these places where else?

A There are swimming pool facilities at Al Nasr Leisureland 04 337 1234, Mushrif Park 04 288 3624 and many of the city hotels will let you use their pools at a charge such as Le Meridien Airport 04 217 0000 & Radisson Blu, Deira 04 222 7171 however I do appreciate that this can be quite expensive.  If any reader knows of any other  swimming pools that are a reasonable cost and ladies will feel comfortable,  Expat Echo would love to hear from you.
