It’s probably the last place you’d expect to find any chimney sweep, let alone your very own Mr Soot.
But recently our owner David was a ‘cover star’ on the legendary satire quiz Have I Got News For You!
David explains: “HIGNFY is one of my all time favourite shows, so to see myself on it was a bit strange to say the least.
“It came about as, a few months ago, I wrote an article for the Guild of Master Chimney Sweep’s magazine, Sweep Stuff.
“Fast forward a few weeks and it seems the HIGNFY production team picked up a copy, had a rummage through it and decided it would be great to feature it in the Missing Words Round.
“The photo on the front was actually a selfie I took while shadowing one of London’s oldest chimney firms, H Firkins, last summer.
“It’s amazing how many customers saw it, and messaged me to say: ‘Was that actually you?’
“It was great to get some national coverage, particularly as we are now starting to grow as a company with nationwide contracts. It’s publicity you really couldn’t buy!”
