On behalf of all of our Directors I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work, support and interest in Bakers of Danbury and its sister companies Collins and Curtis Masonry and Pickford Builders over 2022.
We have had the privilege to work on some beautiful historical buildings and homes again this year, some of which we have detailed in this newsletter.
Since launching a new in-house training programme for Heritage Building Craftsmen to work within our Church department Alex Warburton and Aaron Harman-Day have begun their 18 months externally accredited on-site training. In the New Year we hope to recruit another two trainee Heritage Building Craftsmen. The trainees will work alongside a Bakers of Danbury experienced mentor to carry out their on-site training, structured around an NVQ level 2 qualification, externally accredited heritage building training and other core training which will include a variety of health and safety courses.
After 30 years of working for Bakers of Danbury, our Contracts Director Ant Wood has decided to leave the business to concentrate more on his other interests. I am pleased to advise that Dave Lillywhite has been appointed as Ant's successor within the church department. Dave has been working for Bakers of Danbury for over 30 years, so will make for a smooth transition. We were also sad to say goodbye to Brian Cooper who retired last month, after serving 45 years with Bakers.
