First Aid Training

This month we have had our teams go through their first aid training. This training alone can save lives so it is as important as ever. It also promotes a positive, safe working environment and brought our team together to learn key skills that can be used in and outside of the workplace.



MRCT Food Bank

Last week 4 members of our team spent some time supporting our local food bank.


The Harlow Foodbank, run by the The Michael Roberts Charitable Trust, is a vital local service feeding over 750 families weekly. The work they do today is more critical than ever.

They are always looking for volunteers to help, or if you fancy donating, I’m sure they would warmly welcome your support. Please see the links below if you are interested in finding out more or volunteering.



Meet our suppliers

The main cause of pest infestations within a workplace that I have come across comes from workers leaving uneaten food and wrappers amongst office desks, particularly with the rise of hybrid working and people leaving the office for days at a time. This often leads to mice infestation or attracts fruit flies that feast on the leftover residue found in coffee mugs, yoghurt pots or fruit pots etc. The best solution to this is to keep food in Tupperware and ensure that nothing is left behind in offices that could attract pests.
