Life is a constant chore for an Oxford family which is today celebrating the 10th anniversary of its cleaning firm.

Sue Brightman, 47, set up Chores of Headington, in 1991, from a back bedroom at her home in Goodson Walk, Marston, and her husband Trevor, 48, gave up his job with British Telecom to join her.

Since then, they have worn out four washing machines cleaning a million dusters.

They have also enlisted help from daughter Andriena, 29, son Niki, 22, and his mother-in-law Jean, 50. Grand- daughter Aimee, 11, is also allowed to help out sometimes when work gets busy.

The couple now have a team of eight workers and 130 regular clients.

Staff have cleaned boats, caravans, farms, haunted houses and small one-bedroom flats.

Sue said: "We only need a castle and a windmill to complete our list."
