Week 2 - A work in progress

This week has been interesting. The weather turned from wet to cold (thank goodness). Thursday and Friday featured a fluttering of snow, not ideal when you are in damp buildings.

As you can see from below Wednesday saw the arrival of five portable cabins which we will be working from in week three – a little warmer than where we have been working in week one and two.

The mood is positive among the team as although there is much to do you can now see a real improvement from day to day.

The priority was to make space for new machinery to be delivered. This involved dismantling the old machines that had been damaged. Now a beautiful space has appeared ready for the new kit.

Our “flood sale” mailer was sent to all customers and our phone lines lit up! Discounted stock was being sold all day. A great success.! Do contact us if you want to know what stock we still have. In addition we were organising for the delivery of our portable cabins – or as we like to refer to them our luxury office block.

They are here five beautiful portable cabins to call home to our sales team. Excitement is the word of the day.

Received a letter from Holly Lynch MP, outlining the speech she made in parliament describing the effect the floods have had on Yorkshire and Lancashire and how this is relevant to the Northern Powerhouse.

We have had a week with steel being delivered everyday. Not quite as much as usual, but a start. So today was the day to feel pleased, look back and reflect on the progress we have made over the last two weeks.

Saturday and Sunday – A lie in and a lovely hot bath required!

That is until next week. Keep checking in.
