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.
The company moved from its old headquarters in Barnet because it had "outgrown" the premises, and the new residence offered better parking and travel connections.
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.
