Julie and Jamie in forklift success!

Office staff Julie and Jamie this week decided to further increase their Sherry Textiles versatility by undertaking a week long course in how to manoeuvre the company's pivot-steer forklift truck. The fast learning duo breezed through the theory aspects of the course early in the week to pass the written tests with flying colours. Then came the exciting part; being let loose in our warehouse, weaving (carefully!) down isles and expertly positioning pallets of various towels and bed linens. After quickly acquiring their driving skills both Julie and Jamie managed to pass the practical test under the watchful eye of Pendle Fork Lift instructor Glen. The pair are now happy to pass the forklift driving responsibilities back to usual driver Glenny. Don't worry Glenny you've no competition with these two!

Holiday time!

The Sherry's team members have been coming and going this summer and using the chance to escape the woeful English weather. Recent sales recruit Jamie returned to begin his new role at Sherry's after spending 2 months travelling around south-east Asia. Jamie visited Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. Lyndsey from our sales team visited Mallorca for 2 weeks and returned with a great tan and her 99p flip-flops still intact! Operations director Julie enjoyed a relaxing week (and a few cocktails!) in the Costa Blanca while Sandra in admin decided to head north to brave walking the Scottish countryside. Diane headed south to the adventures of Robin Hood's Bay to enjoy a week away with her family. Poor old managing director David however is still counting down the days until his cruise in the mediterranean. Now it's time to pack away the sun cream and get our heads down and back on with work for the long cold winter!
