Bohemia Village Voice  Bohemia Village Voice

For bohemians everywhere

Bohemias Bob the Builder

Variety is the spice of life for Bob Parsons.   He does maintenance, extensions, chimney repairs, roofing, refurbishing, bathrooms, kitchens … the list is almost endless.   He told the Voice that refurbishments are one of his favourite jobs – “particularly during the winter months!” Bob has been in business for twelve years.  
Originally from south-east London, he moved down to Hastings in 1989.   At the time, he was an HGV lorry driver, but during a spell of unemployment he saw an advert for a bricklaying course at Hastings College.   He obtained his City and Guilds Level 3, became self-employed, and has never looked back! It’s very much a family business. 
Bob’s son and brother-in-law work with him, and his brother used to as well.   Most of his customers are regulars, and he gets a lot of new trade by personal recommendation.
Now Bob has a special reason to celebrate – he got married at the end of August!
