What a vision last night’s game and the scenes at Wembley were 🎆🌟

I was absolutely blown away by the energy, the talent and the patriotism that always comes with watching national team sport.

And with that victorious, patriotic feeling came the inspiration for this issue…

Because, here at WFP, we’ve got our own reasons to be popping champagne and glitter bombs…

Starting with…

Our Founding Director Paul Field‘s shortlisted position as ‘Business Leader of the Year (SME)’ in the British Ex-Forces in Business Awards!

Paul started his professional life out in the Navy, and it’s in their firefighting team that he found his zest for fire safety 🔥

“You don’t realise how much of an impact being in the Forces has on you until you look back and appreciate the resilience it’s given you. When I reflect on the comradery I had with my old shipmates, it reminds me of the importance of teamwork, which is an important framework for building any business.”

Paul’s last award wins were in 2018 as ‘Employer of the Year’ in the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) East of England Awards, and this year when WFP Fire, Security & Electrical won ‘Fire Protection Service of the Year’ in the Prestige Awards for dedication to fire safety throughout the pandemic 🙌💪🔥

Over the last four years, Paul has overcome some incredible personal feats, so the WFP family are incredibly proud of this recognition for a business leader we’re lucky enough to call our own.

The winner will be announced on 8th September – good luck, Paul! We’ve all got our fingers and toes crossed for you! 🤞

Next up on the agenda for this week…

We’re turning your attention to our YouTube channel!

Our Electrical Manager Ricky Howell is big on electrical safety education, so we’re going to be trickling in some new video content for you here and there, (so please keep a look out and subscribe here!)…

Starting with this mini-interview on ‘What is Fixed Wire Testing?’

And a pretty cool time lapse showing an LED lighting upgrade 💡

And, finally…

We’re on the hunt for an Electrical Apprentice to join our team this September!

Interviews are underway this week and we’re thrilled to be working in partnership with JTL to spark one lucky electrician’s future 🎇

If you know anyone who may be interested in this, then please send them our way or direct them to this page on our website which has more information on how to apply!

That’s it for this week!
