The summer months have seen a slow-down in progress at the Cordial Factory. At the beginning of December the apprentices informed management of seasonal work commitments. They would not be available until the end of February. As such, all progress on the Cordial Factory has ceased (not unlike many episodes of Grand Design). Despite the lack of progress over these past months it is encouraging to note that when the apprentices return to work they will bring with them new and improved skills.
Managing a heavily loaded wheelbarrow over steep terrain is a valuable skill – being able to ride in such a wheelbarrow just as challenging.
Being able to get around the work site quickly and safely is crucial. And being able to stop!
Concentrating when handling powerful machinery is essential, demonstrated expertly by our senior apprentice.
