A COMPANY newly-established in Potters Bar is aiming to sweep away the gloom of recession by creating new jobs in the community.
The GOL Group, a company specialising in cleaning and garden maintenance of apartments and office blocks, moved into its new offices in Station Close with a promise to play an "active part" in Potters Bar.

GOL partner Peter Gray said: "We chose Potters Bar because of its fantastic road and rail networks, allowing us to continue expanding not only in London, but now into Hertfordshire, Essex and Kent.
