Moorcroft says goodbye to one of its long service employees

The Moorcroft team have said goodbye to Martin Thomas who has been with the company for 33 years.  At 70 years young Martin, a first rate joiner has led by example and epitomises the Moorcroft ‘can do’ attitude.

Managing Director  Myles Platt made the presentation with colleagues to Martin on his last day.  “Martin not only possesses the traditional skills of a finishing joiner but can put his hand to many other skills such as tiling, concrete work, paving  and flagging.  We wish Martin and his wife a long and happy retirement which commences with a cruise around the Mediterranean!  Don’t get comfortable and leave us your phone number.”
