Hope Woodwork has always enjoyed a good relationship with the Bruderhof Community near Robertsbridge, East Sussex supporting us with advice and volunteers from their woodworking operations. A few months ago they approached us to help in the production of a new garden furniture range they had developed. This has resulted in a positive working venture and has been great for experience in setting up production on a slightly bigger scale.
It has also been a brilliant opportunity for some of our more advanced trainee placements to get involved in a challenging project and learn about high quality standards, for products being sold to a wider market. It has provided some great training opportunities.
