Timber Blinds Dusty, Broken,
Dry and Faded?
Are they mouldy, stained, dusty, slat broken, split or in need of repair?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions you need AMAZING CLEAN!
Oiled Timber Blinds
We gently clean these and then re-oil with natural oil, which nourishes, preserves and rejuvenates the slat surface.
The results are amazing adding years of life to your blinds and saving on the cost of early replacement. Don t leave
it too late; the harsh sun can permanently damage the timber in your blinds.
We gently polish these by hand with a premium beeswax quality polish infused with citrus oil, removing tough stains,
heavy dirt and dust. Your blinds will not only smell refreshed but they will feel and look clean, waxed and polished.
So why not sit back & relax &
let us do the work for you.
We can also clean & repair
all types of blinds.

ORGANISERS of the 2011 Canberra
International Electric Vehicle Festival are
hoping Canberrans will use the event to
take their first ride in an electric car.
Festival co-ordinator David Glynne
Jones said the festival, which will be held
on September 25 on the West Lawns of
Old Parliament House, would attract
many people interested in electric
Mr Jones hoped the annual festival
promoted the early adoption of electric
''The key point of the festival is really
to give Canberrans an early awareness
and understanding about electric cars and
electric vehicles,'' Mr Jones said.
''I've had a strong interest in electric
cars over the last five or six years and that
became an active interest after the
National Electric Vehicle Festival that
was held here in 2009.''
Now in its third year and with a new
name, the Canberra International Electric
Vehicle Festival will be attempting to
offer as many rides in electric vehicles as
possible this year.
''We're working on getting about 1000
people into cars to have their first
experience of electric cars,'' Mr Jones
''People are very surprised at the
performance of electric cars.
''I think the big highlight is just going
to be the opportunity to get in an electric
car and go for your first ride.''
The festival will feature the latest
production electric cars now commer-
cially available in Australia -- the Tesla
Roadster, Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Blade
''There's going to be some very
exciting cars here,'' Mr Jones said.
''Nissan are also bringing their new
vehicle called the Leaf and that will be
here for preview.''
The Nissan Leaf is fresh from its
Australian debut at the Melbourne Motor
Show and due for release on the
Australian market in mid-2012.
All of the electric cars that will be
displayed at the festival use lightweight
lithium battery technology with electric
Alongside the electric cars this year
will be electric motorcycles, scooters and
bikes, and for the very first time electric
''We've made an arrangement with
Lake Burley Griffin cruises to operate
their electric launch Cygnet,'' Mr Jones
People attending Floriade will be able
to travel by electric boat from the Regatta
Point jetty to Commonwealth Place,
where they will be met by electric cars
that will take them to the festival site.
The festival is supported by a climate
change grant from the ACT Government
and sponsorships from organisations.
