Many hands make light work, as new group of volunteers start onsite

This month we have had a new group of 10 volunteers start onsite under the guidance of Jenny Truran from Lancashire County Council Conservation Studios. As part of our ongoing support of the volunteer schemes onsite and as part of our social value contribution, HH Smith have kindly provided the PPE they will need to safely work onsite and have also provided each volunteer with a personalised “Heritage Conservation Volunteer” fleece.

The volunteer group have taken to the training scheme really well, and in the picture below, the group can be see working with Jenny and Heritage Conservation Joinery Specialist Tim Phelps. Tim was brought in to train the group in historic joinery restoration, and he commented that he was surprised at how quickly they had taken his training onboard, and how naturally they had taken to the process.

RIP David Smith

It is with great sadness to inform you that David Smith passed away last Saturday.

David has been at the helm of the company since 1978 where the company has grown from a small plumbing and heating company to 30 million pound construction company.

The core to this success is family values which is imbedded within the company.

David’s wishes were for the company to continue its progression which as a family we will strive to ensure will go from strength to strength.

Fiona, Matthew, Nicola and Michael would like to thank everyone who have sent their condolences. They have received countless phone calls, emails texts, flowers, meals, thoughts and prayers.

These have been most comforting in this difficult time and a reminder of the impact David had on so many,

Haigh Hall Is Go!
We are delighted to have been awarded the contract with Wigan Council for the external repair and restoration of Haigh Hall. The Grade II* Listed Hall, currently on Historic England’s ‘At Risk Register’, is revered by local people as Wigan’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’ and has been at the heart of their history for over 900 years. This initial phase of work forms part of the Council’s wider ambitious plan to fully restore and repurpose this iconic heritage asset, transforming the dilapidated empty shell into a cultural visitor destination of national significance.
