Early season snagging

As a new season gets under way with frankly far too much rain so far, there are always a few snags to pick up.

Mobile home installers at Vieux Port clearly didn’t try opening the door before they blocked this mobile and plumbed it in. Skinny customers only please!

VP bad installation

Also on VP, the new gas delivery driver got a bit confused and left the gas bottles in entirely the wrong place – just as well the team’s trusty buggy had been delivered on time.

Senior courier James Kerr’s verdict on all of this …..

Mobile home installers needed!


Left a bit …… right a bit ……

Lots of you have seen new mobiles arrive on site this season, part of a rolling replacement programme designed to improve our stock across the board.

More of the same for next year means mobile home manager James Gibson is looking for people keen to get involved with uninstalling our old mobiles and putting new ones in place ready for next season.

Kevin and the team will start pulling mobiles off site and dismantling decks early in September, and installation will go on throughout the winter.

Job requirements are:

  • Physical fitness (heavy lifting and crawling about under mobiles)
  • Full driving licence (maintenance/montage type vans)
  • Practical experience and familiarity with tools
mobile plumber

Glamorous stuff.

Contracts will start in September and run at least until Christmas, depending on availability. Installers can expect to work a five or six day week.

Anyone interested should contact their Area Manager in the first instance for further détails.

The Final Peg


final peg

Last one …………….. now, how many weeks until demo?


Montage officially finished last week with the final peg going in on Gigny at about 15:00 on Friday June 16th. Ridiculously late, you may think, and you wouldn’t be wrong either, but I’m taking the view that it’s an improvement on last season and therefore a good thing. Of course, it would have finished somewhat earlier had my montage team recognised the difference between a roof frame and a gazebo, but there you go, just can’t get the staff these days.

Still, we beat the mobile home installation programme, with the final one of these going in on Baume just the other day, and gas testing scheduled for the middle of the week. Jason’s installation team are still on it, with skirts going onto the new mobiles at Gigny over the next few days. All of which means everything should be up and running for high season. Just. Phew!
