He did the job five years ago.
And now a Huddersfield man who vowed to clean up St George’s Square in half a day has offered his services again.
Stone restoration expert Charlie Cartwright stepped in to sort out the troublesome St George’s Square fountain back in 2010 when it ran into problems.
Now, having seen the £230,000 cascade water feature again brought to a halt, he has offered to return and sort it out.
All he wants is £300 donation to Kirkwood Hospice.
He stepped forward the first time after Kirklees Council admitted it could not remove some tough stains from the black granite surface.
The cascade – which was a centrepiece of the £4m revamp of the square – has been out of action this summer for weeks.
Kirklees Council is awaiting technical reports to try and sort it out.
But Mr Cartwright believes it can be up and running again after a good clean.
The 54-year-old, who runs a stone cleaning business, said: “There are stains all over the stonework and we now have vegetation growth along the feature.
“It’s because it has been out of action and neglected that the vegetation is growing.
“There’s also an awful lot of rubbish in there but I am confident we can get in there and get the job done to get the fountain working again.
“I spoke to a council official last week and offered to do as he did before in return for the same terms, a donation to the Hospice.
“I’m still waiting for a reply”.
Mr Cartwright cured the council’s headache the first time around by using his special Farrow System machine.
The system, invented by British farmer Nigel Farrow in the 1980s, was showcased on Tomorrow’s World and is patented in this country.
It uses an environmentally friendly combination of water, heat, volcanic minerals and air and forges them into a powerful cleaning system.
