Raising vital funds for Ashgate Hospice, Derbyshire

Just a quick little update to ask for your help. 
Local Matlock business owner Lindsey Adderson is raising vital funds for Ashgate Hospice in loving memory of her daughter Jessica who sadly passed away. Lindsey, owner of Smiggle Kitchen, is hosting a cake, canape and cocktail party to raise money for the fantastic hospice and is asking for donations towards the hospice who are only partially government funded.

If anyone would like to read more about Lindsey's fundraising or would like to read more about Ashgate and Lindsey and Jessica's story, please follow this link.  I'm sure you'll agree it's a charity worthwhile of anything you can afford and your time.

If you share this, thank you.

Morclean have donated two rounds of golf at Matlock golf club to the cause which we hope will help raise much needed funds for Ashgate! Morclean Bear wishes you all the best of luck in winning them and hopes to see you out on the course soon!

Maths, Rates and Coffee... Interclean 2014 Prep

This week, in preparation for ISSA Interclean 2014 (we're at stand 11.805 for those who are visiting) we, Morclean Bear and I, are working through the marketing and advertising quotes. Maths isn't our strong point mind you which is why we're working together on this one.

We've got a list as long as our arms with everything we need to get through so it's going to be a busy few weeks in the office. That said, it will all be worth it in the end!

PREVIEW: Bin Wash Machine Gets Makeover!

The finishing touches for our new Bin Wash Range are all coming together nicely. We got this sneak image back from the moulders yesterday with the first glimpse of the new plastic bin wash cover which will give the machine a tidier, sleeker look... below is the prototype sketch for when we have the new front cover all ready to go.. it will be fully unveiled at Interclean in May where we will be at stand 11.805 showing off our sparkly new machine!

Also don't forget our Bin Wash machine has been entered into the Tomorrow's Cleaning 2014 Awards - vote for our Bin Wash here before March! I'm sure you'll agree it deserves a vote :)

It's a Bronze... #LoveCurling - the cleaners sport!

Huge congratulations to the Women's Curling team, who curled their way to win a Bronze medal for Team GB this morning! We now have a total of three medals (one Gold, and two bronze) with another guaranteed medal to come tomorrow with the men battling it out for Gold...

What can we say, we just love sports which involve cleaning!

ISSA Interclean 2014, All Systems Go!

It's only 11 weeks now until ISSA Interclean RAI 2014 in Amsterdam and we're hard at work in marketing prepping for the event.. I've even had to draft in extra workers!

Morclean Bear has been hard at work helping me prepare a checklist of things to complete before we go... we'd best get back to it!


All Hands on Deck for Morclean

Earlier last week we shipped Keith, a member of our Sales Team, off to Southampton to board a luxury cruise liner before it headed off to the exotic Caribbean.

Whilst aboard Keith was demonstrating one of our vapour steam cleaners for use on upholstery and carpets on board the ship, making sure everything was kept clean to the highest of standards for all the guests.

They were so impressed with the machine and it's versatility and capabilities that they are seriously considering using them on their whole fleet of ships. The cruising industry will be cleaner than it's ever been with the Morclean Vapour Steam Cleaners... you can find more information about our range of steam cleaners for a variety of different uses here.

For further information on our vapour steam cleaners please call a member of our sales team on 0800 1300 402.

Polish Adventures

This week we're in  Poland with our new Bin Wash machine; our journey is mapped out below...

From Tuesday 18th - Thursday 20th February our Bin Wash Machine will be taking a little tour of Poland.

The journey begins on Tuesday in Bydgoszcz where we will stay overnight. We will then drive over to Poznan for Wednesday morning and then to Gorzow Wielkopolski where we will stay overnight until Thursday Morning. Thursday will bring another day of touring through the Polish countryside - Walcz, Rila and Wyrzysk amongst some of the places we will visit, and then it's back to Bydgoszcz to begin the journey home.

If you see our van or machine out and about around Poland, give us a wave! We will hopefully have some photos to share with you next week.

#LoveCurling... Cleaning Up The Olympics!

#LoveCurling has been trending pretty much since the Olympics started on Saturday... the BBC and Olympics have managed to get people hooked on Curling, the only sport which involves CLEANING. Obviously, we LOVE it! Here at Morclean we're all about the cleaning!

Maybe it's something we should think about expanding into - ice polishing kits? It could take off... Stranger things have happened...

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT - Just over 11 weeks to go...

It's just over 11 weeks to go until Morclean head to Amsterdam to check out all the latest cleaning inventions and ideas to take the Cleaning Industry by storm! And guess what we've been keeping quiet until now? WE WILL BE EXHIBITING AT INTERCLEAN TOO!! This is our first Interclean where we will be exhibiting so it's very exciting for us. We're very excited to unveil our brand new Bin Wash machine in Amsterdam! We will be at stand 11.805 and 11.705 so make sure you come and say hi and check out our latest machine!

We can't wait to meet both old and new faces and mingle amongst all the positive and innovative technology which is blossoming in the growing market of industrial cleaning. They'll be everything from new healthcare cleaning/sanitising systems to wheel wash demonstrations and of course our wheelie bin wash so it's bound to be a varied show.

Let us know if you're heading out and what you're most looking forward to... the countdown continues!…

Morclean Sponsors Sochi Winter Olympics 2014

... we wish we had that in our advertising budget! But seriously, it's amazing what you can do with a few graphics.

According to my little table on my desk, today sees the Biathlon, Cross Country, Freestyle Skiing, Luge, Snowboarding, Ski Jumping and Speed Skating.

It looks like we've got a few medal hopefuls coming up in the next few days. More Morclean Olympics inspired graphics coming soon!

It's Sochi Time!

Tomorrow marks the start of the Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia. Throughout the games and as a little bit of fun, we have created some funky graphics for most events because let's face it, we all love a nice picture!

It's the Opening Ceremony tomorrow in Sochi ... we want to wish Team GB a huge 'GOOD LUCK' and we hope they come back knowing they've done their best. We will be watching from home with a cup of tea (maybe a wine in the evening), feet up and in the warm, cheering on from the sofa. COME ON TEAM GB!

Countdown to the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014

With only 3 days left until the Winter Olympics 2014 kicks off in Sochi, Russia the Morclean office is getting into the Olympic spirit!

Our logo has had an icy and sport-inspired makeover for the Quadrennial event which starts on Friday.

Whilst our medal chances look a little bleak compared to the record breaking amount of medals in 2012, we're still in with a shot in the curling and speed skating as usual, as well as having great chances in the freestyle skiing, bobsleigh, skeleton and snowboarding.

My personal favourite to watch is the figure skating so I'll be tuned into that all weekend, how about you?
