Sunday 1 October 2017 09:30 - 14:30

Crew: Aleksei Tuertyaev, Deividas Miskinis It has been a while since we finished the project, but I just wanted to thank you again for your services and for providing what truly was a 'a-team.'

Both Deividas and Aleksei did an absolutely perfect and complete job, they were incredibly professional and were leading each installation day with a fantastic vision, practical thinking, proactive and hands-on attitude, and also positive energy. Both were always on time and Holloween we always finished before the expected end-time. It was a real pleasure working with both of them, and I hope to have the opportunity to hire your services very soon again.

Thanks, and all the best.
Kind regards,
Laura Schmieder

Just wanted to send on our HUGE thank you for the crew we had booked this morning (Jimmy, William, Konstantinos, Martynas)

The guys were exceptionally quick and helpful with this job. Furthermore, the driver who was collecting the equipment we were packing could not speak any English at all. Fortunately, Martynas was able to communicate with him in Russian! This was a BIG help for me, so I really appreciate it!!

Please pass on our thanks to them

JOKE OF THE MONTH

Joke 1:

Teacher: "Kids, what does the chicken give you?"
Student: "Meat!"
Teacher: "Very good! Now what does the pig give you?"
Student: "Bacon!"
Teacher: "Great! And what does the fat cow give you?"
Student: "Homework!"

Joke 2:
A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family."

Joke 3:
A blonde and a redhead have a ranch. They have just lost their bull. The women need to buy another, but only have £500. The redhead tells the blonde, "I will go to the market and see if I can find one for under that amount. If I can, I will send you a telegram." She goes to the market and finds one for £499. Having only one pound left, she goes to the telegraph office and finds out that it costs one pound per word. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer. Finally, she tells the telegraph operator to send the word "comfortable." Sceptical, the operator asks, "How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?" The redhead replies, "She's a blonde so she reads slow: 'Come for ta bull.'"

Crew man of the Month goes Loic de Lapeyre de Bellaire

Thank you for all your hard work it’s much appreciated.

Well done. Please pop into the office to collect your Leatherman.

                                                  Lewis                                                     

Hi Sharon

I just wanted to say thank you for all of Lewis’ (and the others when we had additional support) for the small Severn Trent roadshow. It wasn’t in the most glamorous of locations, but Lewis was great to have on the time and was very hard working and conscientious.

Lewis developed quite an admiration for our cardboard cut-out character, “Phil”, which was always a running joke around not to forget Phil, don’t damage him, pick him up when he faints, etc. Not particularly funny now but the sort of thing that made a boring tour less repetitive. I therefore thought I would share a photo I have just seen on my phone, for you to perhaps include in your internal newsletter.

Thanks again and speak soon,
Ben
