STAR FEEDBACK OF THE MONTH

 

Thank you to your crew members for coming in early on Sunday it was really helpful and they were great. Charlie

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for the crew onsite, stand out guys for me were Manuel and Ed who made a brilliant team. Very keen guys, smart and reliable at all times often thinking ahead and planning what to do next without a great deal of management required. They both understood the job and worked really well together, I’m really pleased you were able to provide the same guys for each call, this consistency made my life much easier onsite. Please make sure Manuel and Ed receive our thanks.

I recently had Andrew Mills on two of my jobs, one at 8 Northumberland Av and the other at Leicester Sq. He was willing to stay on an extra few hours at the Leicester Square install with another member of the team which was very helpful. On both jobs Andrew has been very prompt in looking for continuous work to ensure he remains active helping Easter the installation push forward. Andrew also has a good hand in controlling other members of the team and will organise crew in agreement with the crew chief to help get work completed. I wanted to mention his hard work and make you aware of his efforts.

Thanks

Hope you are well? I wanted to firstly say how delighted we were with both Magic and Marius on the installation of the Zoe Bradley windows for Pandora. They both did an excellent job, please pass on our thanks to them.

I just wanted to write to say thank you to all of your Crew who worked with us for the install and derig of Lush in the Basement at Old Billingsgate from Saturday 10th to Saturday 17th February.

Zurab was leading the team throughout the install and was very helpful with the various tasks we threw at the team. He constantly made sure that the team were busy, making sure the appropriate people were leading or dealing with particular tasks.

He was careful to check in with me throughout the event updating me on progress and checking what else needed to be done. He was happy to help me with particular logistics, especially when it came to sharing workloads with the Alpha Crew team allocated to upstairs. Access to the basement wasn’t straight forward but Zurab kept on top of the truck logistics and organised his crew in a way that meant the whole install was very smooth and relaxed.

During the install we loaded 10 tonnes of sand into the basement and laid it out into a beach scene. The venue were very worried about the amount of mess this would make. Marcus ran this part of the install.

Marcus listened carefully to the way in which we proposed to minimise the mess and he lead his team in a clear manner, I was really impressed with how quickly it all happened and how controlled it was.

Zurab then ran the derig of the sand. Zurab was very clear with his team about how we were to manage the loose sand and I’m happy to say it went really well.

I was really pleased with the service your teams provided throughout the week, it was a pleasure to work alongside all of them.

Thank you

Joke Of The Month

An Irishman named Paddy got a call from his doctor. “I’ve some bad news for you… you have cancer and it can’t be cured. I’d give you two weeks to a month.”

Paddy, shocked and saddened by the news, managed to compose himself. He saw his son who had been waiting. Paddy said, “Son, we Irish celebrate when things are good and celebrate when things don’t go so well. In this case, things aren’t so well. I have cancer and I’ve been given a short time to live. Let’s head for the pub and have a few pints.”

After three or four pints the two were feeling a little less sombre. There were some laughs and more beers. They were eventually approached by some of Paddy’s old friends who asked what the two were celebrating. Paddy told them that the Irish celebrate the good and the bad… he went on to tell them that they were drinking to his impending end. He told his friends, “I’ve only got a few weeks to live as I have been diagnosed with AIDS.” The friends gave Paddy their condolences and they had a couple more beers.

After his friends left, Paddy’s son leaned over and whispered, “Dad, I thought you said that you were dying from cancer. You just told your friends that you were dying from AIDS!”

Paddy said, “I am dying from cancer, son, I just don’t want any of them sleeping with your mother after I’m gone.”

A blonde was a bit overweight so doc put her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day and repeat this for 2 weeks, next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5lb's". When she returns, she's lost 4 stone. Doc asks "Wow, Did u do as I said?” The blonde nods. "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day. “From hunger?" asks the doc. "No," says the blonde, "from skipping!!"
