Burcombe BBQ

Thanks to everyone who popped along to Friday’s social, in true British summer style it wasn’t quite BBQ weather but it did at least stay dry – and we had good food and music!

Next social for your diaries will be Saturday 15th September – more details to follow.

Annual training morning at Burcombe

It was a warm morning for the annual health and safety training session in the Burcombe yard at the weekend. Groups of drivers attended refresher workshops on tipper, sweeper and mixer maintenance and updates, company news and annual checks, as well as a fire safety demonstration by Phoenix Fire Consultancy.

The morning was fuelled by Helluva pasties and was a successful and beneficial morning for all!

Health & Safety Accreditations Gained

Burcombe Haulage have been successful in obtaining additional accreditations in health and safety. Completing the Contractor and Non-Construction SMAS SSIP accreditation for 2018/19 as well as the health and safety accreditation for the CQMS Safety Scheme, puts the company not only up to date with regulations but also enables the opportunity for further tender contracts in future.

Another Great Show

It was another great Royal Cornwall Show with the sun shining for most of the weekend and our vehicles both on display and working at the Wadebridge Showground.
Burcombe Mercedes, Isuzu and Volvos were all on show on their respective stands while the sweeper was there at the end of each day working to get the site looking clean for next day visitors.

With thousands of visitors and so much to see among the livestock, stalls and displays, Burcombe are delighted to once again be involved with Cornwall’s biggest yearly event.

  

Royal Cornwall Show this weekend

The Royal Cornwall Show starts today and runs until Saturday. If you’re heading down, see if you can spot our four Burcombe lorries on display around the showground.

We’ve recently got ourselves on Twitter and Instagram, so give us a follow – BurcombeHaulage – and we’ll have plenty of pictures from the Show tomorrow!

Plymouth Half Marathon 2018

Burcombe’s very own Carina, Nic and new company recruit Helen Manley took on a very hot Plymouth Half Marathon at the weekend, raising money for 10 charities as part of Caradon Hockey Club’s 10-4-10 charity campaign this year.
The Caradon team have raised almost £1,500 with offline cash amounts still to be counted.

There is still chance to sponsor them at Team Caradon – Plymouth Half Marathon
