A second career outdoors

Christchurch and surrounding area.

Christchurch's franchisee - John

Since joining Ed's I've moved my Ed's business twice to suit my personal circumstances. Ed's systems and the Office team have supported me so well through my moves. I'm now running my Ed's business in Christchurch and I'm just as happy and motivated as I was when I started almost seven years ago.

I was a communications officer with the Metropolitan Police for 19 years and took early retirement. It was too early to retire and I had always enjoyed gardening so I decided to start an Ed's Garden Maintenance business. I started up in September 2011 and in two months, had 14 regular customers plus one-offs. Now I have almost 50 regulars and my business is going great guns. What's more I really enjoy what I'm doing and don't miss the shift work at all!
