As many of you know Debby left the company at the end of March after many years. On Debby's final evening we had a get together at Blandford with some food and soft drinks.
 
Jeff presented Debby with a watch and Bouquet which all the team contributed towards.
On behalf of us all at AWR we wish Debby all the very best for the future.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM

SOPHIE MATTHEWS

NEW VEHICLE



Another new vehicle has joined the fleet, it is an Iveco 100E18 slideback with 2nd car lift. This vehicle will stay at 10 ton and will require an HGV driver. It will be based at Salisbury.




TEAM MEMBER PROFILE

As a way to help everyone get to know about members of the team we are going to have a 'profile' each month, the first to be chosen is Martin Tite. Martin is a breakdown technician who started with AWR in November 2003 and lives at Sturminster Newton with his wife and two sons. Martins hobbies are Carnivals and The Ladies Driving Challenge which raises funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

For one of the Ladies challenges Martin cut off the front of 2 Diahatsu four tracks and welded them together so the vehicle could be driven at either end!!
Martin said that the ladies had great fun trying to negotiate around a laid out course. For his next project he is going to try and turn it ionto a breakdown vehicle, "now where can i fit the spec lift!"
