Job Vacancy – Cleaner Required @ Lidl (11 to 20 hours)

For our cleaners, every sweep of the brush is a step towards perfecting the customer experience. Working a couple of hours per day, usually in the mornings, you’ll make sure that the store is clean, tidy and safe to move around, both on and off the shop floor. There’s a lot to do, but if you’re someone who likes to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, this could be the role for you.

Our cleaners are an essential part of our store teams. They are relied upon to ensure both customer facing areas and employee areas are clean and tidy.

Rate of pay is £9.50 to £9.80 per hour.

World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day is a holiday that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. The purpose of this day is to help everyone understand that kindness is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations. With kindness, we can overcome the divides of politics, race, religion, gender, and so much more. What began as an effort from the World Kindness Movement at a Tokyo conference 24 years ago is now a global movement reminding everyone of the power of kindness. https://inspirekindness.com/blog/world-kindness-day-2021-your-complete-guide

43 Weeks To Complete New Business Development

Network Space Phase 2 Development

Construction work is to start on Monday 8th November for the next 43 weeks on the phase 2 development on Sandyford’s James Brindley Way, which will include the building of 5 industrial units.

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (SAGE) has been in talks with the contractor Caddick in regards to noise reduction during the construction, which they have confirmed as follows. Non-noisy work start time – 7.30am, Noisy works involving plant start time – 8am, Site finishing time – 5pm, No weekend works planned at present. The contractor states they trust the development will be completed with the minimum of inconvenience to residents.

The works will consist of ground stabilisation including piling, concrete pad foundations, steel frame, cladded façade, windows, warehouse sectional doors, toilets to ground and 1st floor, 1st floor office space, car parking and concrete service yard turning circle, new statutory services and a new drainage layout.

The development should have a completion date of around 5th September 2022, and the contractor has agreed to keep residents updated on progress throughout the programme of works.

It is good to know the contractor has listened to the residents association’s concerns from phase 1 by keeping the noisy work down from 7.00am previous to 8.00am now as well as no planned weekend work, which caused much distress to local people.

The positive side to this disruption is the opportunity of more employment coming to Sandyford and Stoke on Trent as a whole.

Congleton’s Henshall Hall Has Ties With Sandyford

Henshall Hall was once owned by Stuart Johnson who also owned Johnson’s Potteries in Tunstall as well as later in Sandyford.

The ties linked in from a stately home in Congleton to Sandyford is due to Stuart Johnson having properties built in Sandyford, and him naming Henshall Place after the residence he owned back in Cheshire.

This piece of history links anyone living in Henshall Place to Stuart Johnson wanting some of his grandeur back into Stoke on Trent and especially Sandyford, unfortunately the hall was demolished back in 1975 after suffering severe fire damage.

Fuel-saving Tips to Improve Fuel Economy

  • Remove excess weight, and get rid of any rubbish in the car
  • Air conditioning uses fuel. But having the windows down causes drag, which uses up fuel too. Well, here’s what to do. At low speeds, open the window – the fuel used to compensate for drag is less than the fuel used to power your air con. But when driving on the motorway, it’s the other way around. So turn on the climate control and roll the windows up
  • Only topping up with what you need and avoiding having a full tank means the fuel you do have goes slightly further
  • Your driving style can have a big impact on how much petrol or diesel you use. Try to keep your driving smooth. Gentle acceleration and using the highest safe gear will use less fuel
