Cleaning firm thanked for its support

REGIONAL cleaning company Monthind is among businesses to have received thanks for their support for the Reserve Forces in Afghanistan.

Ian Daly, known to colleagues as Dan, who is part of the Colchester-based company’s window and specialist cleaning team, served for a year alongside the regular Army before returning to his job.

Tony Clarke, managing director of Monthind, said: “As an employer it is our duty to support our staff who wish to serve our country.”

Mr Clarke and Mr Daly were invited to attend the SaBRE (East Anglia Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association) dinner in Chelmsford as a thank you to employers who have supported their staff in Afghanistan.
