|"I have a background in healthcare IT and business operations and work on the day-to-day running of the business. I also manage the workshop and furniture making activities. I became a director in August 2014 after working as a volunteer on business planning and reorganisation. I love interacting with our customers and enjoy the creative side of planning new workshop projects. I also like to work with the adults with learning difficulties. I think our most important social aim is to give opportunities to those that would otherwise find it difficult to find a place to work or to contribute."
||"After having worked in IT in the city for over 10 years I was looking for a change. I discovered the world of community wood recycling via the NCWRP website. I Spent time volunteering at the Bristol and Manchester Wood recycling social enterprises and found the idea fitted in with my thinking – a business with social and environmental aims. In 2008 I took the plunge and started up a Wood Recycling business with St Albans Emmaus. In October 2010 with support from Emmaus I set up the independent St Albans Wood Recycling CIC at our current location in Pickford Road."
