Winter is Coming…

Oct 25, 2023

Rectory Green resident, Joan Eastwood, asked if the Emanuel Whittaker team could remove the high level hanging baskets that had ceased blooming and replace them with some decorative balls for the upcoming winter, so her block and the memorial garden would still look bright.

Emanuel Whittaker Joiner, Mick Crossan, was happy to assist with this.

Problem Solved

Oct 25, 2023

On a sunny day at Rectory Green, you will often find the residents catching some rays in one of the various garden areas.

Resident, Michael Mooney, called into the Emanuel Whittaker site office one day to see if we could fix the damaged tube from a parasol base that is used in one of the communal areas.

Emanuel Whittaker sub-contractor, PBI Engineering, kindly welded the bolt back on to the steel cylinder.

Emanuel Whittaker Joiner, Mick Crossan reassembled the repaired stand.

Recycle, Reuse!

We mentioned in a previous Good News Story, that Rectory Green resident, Gerald Williams, had an allotment nearby where we had dropped off pallets at his request to assemble a compost bin.

On this occasion, Gerald approached us for some used glazing from our window replacement scheme, to construct a cold frame greenhouse.

Emanuel Whittaker Joiner and resident favourite, Mick Crossan, dropped off several glazing units to Gerald’s allotment one lunchtime; afterwards Gerald thanked Mick and the team for helping with his next project.

Helping Hand

Sep 27, 2023

Great Places residet, Mrs Robinson, returned from the shops with several bags of shopping.

Emanuel Whittaker Site Supervisor, Marc Woodall, could see that she was struggling to carry her bags to the building and up the stairs and came to her rescue and carried all of her shopping into her kitchen for her.

Mrs Robinson was very grateful.

Jump into action

Rectory Green resident, Robert Grice, was ready to leave early one morning and realised he had left his car head lights on overnight, which had drained the battery.

Robert popped into the Emanuel Whitaker site office to see if we could help.

JB roofer Matt supplied the leads and Sovereign window fitter Jamie Schofield provided the jump start Robert needed and it wasn’t long before he was on his way, waving his thanks as he drove off.

Well done team!
