WMS hails Awesome Twosome!

WMS apprentice’s Ben Hatton and Archie James have really stolen the show at WMS Bideford branch recently – by successfully securing their Carpentry and Joinery Level 2 qualifications!!!

Ben and Archie have both worked really hard to get to this point, and everyone at WMS is proud of them.

WMS Operations Director Matt Westaway said “ apprentices are the future of our business and to see these two lads come through the course and ready to move on to the next stage of their career is fantastic!”

WMS continue to invest in apprenticeships which offer a real grounding for a rewarding career in construction, and WMS in particular!.

Manning the WMS stand under the social value banner at a client’s resident fun day recently WMS ran a number of competitions for residents, the most popular being the “name the seal” and “guess the sweets.”

Pictured here are two happy chappies,  Thomas with “Stephen” the seal and Leo with his jar containing 92 packets of sweets!
