Another coffee morning…

A fabulous turnout at the coffee morning held at Jubilee House on Friday, 29th August.  Danbro, Conlons, local residents, friends of the estuary, local counsellor and the Blackpool Gazette were all there.

A great event that brings the local community together to openely discuss the Jubilee House development as well as the chance to take a brief tour of the inside of the building.    Some lovely tea and delicious cakes as well!

Gordon from Conlon’s opened the meeting with a brief overview of where we are in terms of building completion and Damian and Helen, co-owners of Danbro, confirmed that we will be in the building, and fully operational, from the 5th January.

Despite the wettest August in history we are still on track.  So this is it…the final countdown (I’m sure that sounds like a song to me!).

Well done to all involved in hosting the coffee morning.  See you at the next one!

Recent Student Visit to Jubilee House

Blackpool & The Fylde College students made a recent visit to Jubilee House (they’re all working towards a joinery qualification), where they were given presentations (in a specially set up ‘Safe Zone’!) on all aspects of Health & Safety and the ‘behind-the-scenes’ workings on a building site. A tour of the site then followed.

Another great coffee meeting…

our thanks to Gordon, site manager, for organising another fabulous coffee morning at Jubilee House last Thursday. Representatives from Conlon, local residents, Friends of the Estuary and Danbro were all there.

As usual it was a very open and interesting forum with a brief presentation by Gordon and Damian, MD of Danbro, highlighting the building developments and changes going forward, with a question and answer session at the end.

Everybody seated!
