Hi, I'm Alison Manning, founder and owner of The Flying Fairy. Thank you for visiting us and if you are looking to find out a little more about what we do, you've come to the right place! The Flying Fairy is a very special and unique company based in Burton upon Trent, and I believe it is the high quality range of housekeeping services we provide along with the simplicity of how we do this, which sets us apart from the rest.
I don't think our humble beginnings are particularly unique. In early 2020 I was working in a large corporate environment where I'd been for many years. I had built a successful career in a challenging and somewhat all-consuming job. I'd recently been promoted, had a baby and moved house, so life was pretty hectic! I am a keen organiser, very structured and detailed and so enjoyed the work involved in trying to keep all the plates spinning. But, I recognised that part of the challenge was a simple matter of maths..... I just didn't have enough hours in the day to do it all. I needed another me!
As work filled most of the week and with a young family at home, I found I needed to rely on multiple service providers to carry out many of the jobs that come with running a home. The cleaning, gardening, weekly food shop, arranging maintenance appointments, washing, ironing, paying bills and running a hundred and one errands. The list went on! The service providers didn't always turn up, they weren't always the friendliest and managing so many of them became a job in itself. It was then that I realised what I needed was a Housekeeper, one person I could rely on, a professional like myself, who could share the taking care of my world. I searched for the solution within the local area and found nothing. And so, in the absence of being able to find a simple solution to the busyness and chaos, I decided to leave the corporate world and launch The Flying Fairy.
Our aim is clear, to deliver high quality housekeeping services, to busy families and professional homes across Burton upon Trent and beyond. We strive to take away stress, and give back valuable time. Your house is a home and your time is precious. You want someone to walk in and just get things done without you needing to be overly involved. You want a service that will save you time, is value for money and won't let you down. You want, The Flying Fairy.
We also offer a Companionship service which provides some much-needed company and friendship across Burton. I recognise how important this particular service is to so many people, no one should feel alone. At The Flying Fairy, we are committed to doing all we can to help end loneliness within our town and with more elderly people choosing to stay in their homes than ever before, this is often an additional (and incredibly important) aspect of life that needs to be managed by often, the younger members of the family.
Our commitment to offering high quality executive housekeeping services in a simple and cost-effective way remains firmly at our core and everything we do is tailored to the individual needs of each client. We would love the opportunity to show you what we do and what's more, we may even bring cake!
Wishing you lots of happiness and sparkle.
