……and just like that, November is here and Autumn is well and truly in the air! As the nights draw in and the mornings become crisp our workload shows no sign of retreat up to Christmas and beyond. It has been incredibly humbling over the last couple of months to hear from many local familiar faces and some brand new ones to book in their tree and hedge work requirements alongside new commercial customers coming on board. Not only has our customer base grown further, so has our work force. We’ve welcomed Nathan and India recently who between them have years of past experience and valuable knowledge. Nathan and India have been great additions to the AJB gang and have brought with them enthusiasm, drive and most importantly the skills we need to further succeed as a team. As usual, we continue to plough on with training, the priority being first aid refreshers but possibly more exciting are the courses coming up for Harry and Dan. Harry will be completing his CS31 course in a couple of weeks time to enable him to fell small trees and Dan will be tackling his NPTC 21-09 Level 3 Award in Aerial Tree Rigging early in the new year. We have always maintained as a business that putting time and effort in to everyone’s personal and professional development will reap rewards in the long run for all those involved. As ever, if we can be of any assistance for any size job or if you require a free, no obligation quote, please do get in touch via our ‘Contact Us’ page and we will get back to you. The countdown to Christmas is on (dare we mention that word with two months to go!) and we’re all looking forward to a well earned break, but first, back to work and doing what we do best, onwards and upwards!
