Who we are
FAMILY-RUN PROPERTY MAINTENANCE
Allow us to introduce ourselves, we are a hard working family of three made up of Anna, Guy and Bobby (plus our fluffy companions Bonnie and Lagertha).
As a family business, we retain a unique quality that every member of our family plays a role to offer a modern-day social enterprise which enables us to handle the fundamental periods to the survival and on-going success of The Handy Family Company.
Our passion is to help people. With our backgrounds in furniture production, engineering, retail and design we can deliver meaningful results. We love what we do and we aim to please!
It took many years of self-education, hard work and perseverance to get where we are today. We are thankful we chose this career where we can continue learning as it is ever-evolving in the property sector. With each year we continue setting goals for ourselves, no matter how big or small and for that, we are most proud.

As soon as you meet Guy you will understand why many people refer to him as a Viking (he's not a real one!)
Guy has over 25 years of experience, he has worked for Hammonds Furniture manufacturing and assembling quality bespoke bedroom and home office furniture. Guy offers a high level of craftsmanship and his attention to detail is meticulous. He is an electrically trained domestic installer and has qualifications in Engineering and Engineering Maintenance. Guy has been assessed by the chartered institute of environmental health and is in electric and safety maintenance training.
Guy likes spending his spare time painting models and collecting 1980’s toys (a bit of a geek at heart)
Property Maintenance Operative
If any pots are missing from the kitchen you can guarantee there in Bobby's room! (A typical teenager)
Many people refer to Bobby as a wonderful young man, mature for his age and tall like his Dad. Bobby finished school in 2020 with 6 GCSEs and has a Diploma in Plumbing and Heating Engineering and has completed an apprenticeship in property maintenance operative. With a great-grandfather and grandfather who both worked in the building industry, he was destined to become a tradesman.
Bobby likes spending his spare time glued to the XBOX, his phone or his iPad!

Dedicated to helping in the community.
The Handy Family Company are dedicated to helping in the community and with your help, we are able to support the following charities by making a monthly donation
Rainbows Hospice for Children
Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People care for those with terminal illnesses including a growing number of children with cancer. They provide specialist care and support to help children, siblings and family through the toughest days of their lives helping them to treasure every precious moment.
Care is provided by a professional team of highly respected nurses, carers and therapists together with a large support team, under the direction of a team of doctors providing specialist paediatric, and palliative care for children in the hospice and in the community. Rainbows strive to help families escape from a hospital environment, focusing instead on a home-like atmosphere.
Me & Dee
Me & dee has a simple mission, to ensure families going through difficult and uncertain times are gifted with memories they can treasure, never losing sight of what truly matters. Because it’s those special moments shared with the ones we love, no matter how complicated circumstances may be, that are most precious of all.
They can’t change the difficult times. But together they can help families going through life-changing circumstances to laugh and smile when they need it most, making sure it’s the special times that will always be remembered. Their lodge in Sherwood Forest on the Sherwood Hideaway site is a place where families can spend together in a tranquil setting. It’s a place where families can leave the hospital visits behind, a break from the lovely doctors and nurses who look after them, giving them time to be a family again.
The me&dee Hideaway location is close to so many attractions that families can get to should they wish to venture out and enjoy. With your support, families and children facing life-changing and limiting circumstances can find the space to celebrate the precious time they have together.
