What a very strange year it’s been - again!

We have sadly lost colleagues who are still missed but we have also gained some lovely ones along the way. Against all odds, we have completed over 8500 vehicles across 2 sites and despite the home working (and the endless Teams calls!) we have become stronger as a group.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and wish you a safe and happy Christmas & New Year, see you in January!

✅ DRIVING SAFETY by DRIVING EFFICIENCY ✅
=======
This week we welcomed the first batch of new TM spec vehicles which forms Stage 1 of our Fleet Renewal Programme.
Working closely with Enterprise and VFS we were able to play an integral part in the design and build of these Traffic Management Vehicles and shape the future of TM.
This further signifies our determination to lower our carbon footprint across our fleet by running some of the most modern fuel efficient vehicles available. The introduction of more modern vehicles also forms part of our longer Low Carbon Strategy which encompasses our continued aim to introduce the most advanced technology in order to pro-actively serve our network of customers whilst reducing our overall environmental impact. This is continually reviewed and is instrumental in maintaining our ISO 14001 accreditation. 🌍

This is Andrea Barnes. Andrea worked as a Senior Buyer in our Procurement Department for 16 years. Before VFS she worked as a buyer for a massive airport retailer, ensuring new stores were ready for opening on time and purchasing anything from teddy bears to Cartier.

Andrea was once captain of her ladies darts team. She loved F1 Racing, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and she was the best left handed crocheter around! Most of us here own something she has crocheted for us over the years. She also kept us all in a steady supply of biscuits and pain killers.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer a long time ago but recovered well. A few years ago she was diagnosed with bone cancer but continued to work throughout her treatment. Over the last 6 months she became steadily more ill (but refused to give up work!) and 3 weeks ago was diagnosed with un-treatable brain cancer. She passed away peacefully in her sleep, in a hospice, in the early hours of Monday morning.

Andrea was, without a doubt, one of the strongest people we have ever known and refused to give up right until the very end.

Our thoughts are with her husband Derek and their daughters Elizabeth & Victoria.

She will be so missed

Every year, around Christmas time, we collect for our local food bank. This year we received a lovely hamper from Venta Global, so we held a raffle in the factory, with all proceeds going to Eastleigh Basics Bank & Westfield Centre Food Bank in South Elmsall Town Council

In total, we raised £163 and delivered 2 big boxes and 5 bags of food.

Since the start of the pandemic, our local food bank has fed twice the amount of people, than in any other year they have been operating. If you can spare anything, I'm sure your closest food bank would be very grateful.

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that our Managing Director of 22 years, John Hanlon passed away in the early hours of this morning with his family by his bedside after a 3 year battle with bowel cancer.

Those of you who knew John will remember him as a larger than life character who took no nonsense, lived life to the full and had fun along the way.

All of us here at VFS give our sincerest heart-felt condolences to John's family and know that today we have lost a friend, mentor and great leader.

A very sad day for us all here at VFS

John Hanlon 1955 - 2020

This is stated on your, VFS, website: TYPE APPROVAL VFS implement a policy of obtaining European Approval as opposed to National, ensuring volume limits imposed by the National scheme are avoided. For low volume bespoke vehicles not covered by European or National approvals, Individual Vehicle Approval’s (IVA) are performed at a local VOSA facility. LAUGHABLE!! ABSOLUTE LIE 🤣😂
I am constantly trying to contact VFS and nobody helps. Your warranty chap just cut me off on the telephone and you are trying to pass the buck saying it is not something you get involved with!!!! This is an obligation required by the French authorities from VFS and no-one else can help, It seems you are happy to sell your vans then wash your hands!! Disgusted
