Lynn James

Bourne Valley Electrical Services

Neil (usually known as Jamie) and Lynn James have been together since 1998, when they met whilst working for Stannah Stairlifts Limited, as a quality engineer and a multi-lingual personal assistant to the managing director respectively. Jamie decided to retrain as a fully qualified electrician in 2005 and they set up Bourne Valley Electrical Services Limited in 2007. Lynn mainly concentrates on the administration and is the Company Secretary, but is often pressed into service as a “much maligned go-fer”. They do enjoy working together and have managed to remain friends as well as husband and wife! Having a lady wielding a screwdriver often causes bemusement, but we have found it to be helpful when more elderly customers live alone and are, understandably, wary of strangers coming to work in their homes.

Bourne Valley Electrical Services Limited is based near Salisbury, but will work anywhere in the south of England for a reasonable size of job. They do have access to other trusted Part P registered electricians with whom they have worked before, should a larger workforce be required. Although principally domestic electricians working in people’s homes, they also work for local churches, village halls and shops, as well as in offices and factories.

Any electrical job, no matter how small, would be considered and a free, no obligation, itemized quotation is offered. Bourne Valley Electrical Services Limited pride themselves on providing good service and quality workmanship. Their ethos is to treat people as they would wish to be treated themselves: politely and with respect, working as tidily as possible and cleaning up carefully afterwards.

They have completed a wide range of tasks over the years: reinstating power to a farm (including working in a cowshed with a two-foot deep soft ‘flooring’ and bulls!); working on Spire FM’s radio transmitter; providing a power source for above-ground swimming-pools; conversion of a ship’s container into a workshop; conversion of a house stuffed full of furniture into four flats; car-charging points for dual-fuel cars; running network cables in a doctor’s surgery, marketing agency and pet supplies company; effecting repairs and portable appliance testing in a busy kitchen with a foreign chef throwing a tantrum…there are never two days the same.

If you are are planning a new-build or to renovate a property: a new kitchen, bathroom, extension, loft conversion; partial or complete rewire or hear of anyone else mentioning these tasks, please consider us – we would be pleased to help! We do electrical inspections for peace of mind, to satisfy insurance companies and between changes of owner or tenant. We replace older style fuse-boxes with rewireable fuses for modern consumer units with miniature circuit-breakers, which are especially easier for older people (and the rest of us!) to use.

For any electrical task, call Bourne Valley Electrical Services Limited – the “Bright Sparks”.
