August Blog 2017

We are mid-way through the season now & we are just about taking a breath. Due to our recent successes we have been fortunate enough to add to our growing team and are happy to say they are coming along fantastically.

Ongoing investment through training to national and international standards is a priority for our business and we are looking forward to our workforce adding to their growing list of competencies & qualifications.

The funny thing about this is Environment agency were responsible for the publication of the first Codes of practice!
