Hour Hands was set up by Christine Frith and Liz Goscomb to allow people leading busy lives to regain some free time. Both have had to balance the demands of successful careers with small children and the upkeep of a home and family. They are only too aware of how full life can be, how many day-to-day jobs remain unfinished and how little ‘me’ time is left over. And so the seed for the idea behind Hour Hands has been sown – when the pressure builds and things get too stressful, Hour Hands is now on hand to help.
