Bike UK Takes Delivery of Velopost Post Box

Bristol based cycling specialist Bike UK has teamed up with fossil fuel free delivery service Velopost to offer customers the opportunity to buy stamps and post letters when they shop.

Bike UK in Clifton, the city’s largest bicycle and accessories retailer, is the first retailer to install a Velopost post box after a successful pilot in Destination Bristol.

Bike UK Shop Manager Damola Johnson says ‘We want to contribute to the community and green credentials of our city as well as growing a thriving business, and this Velopost link is perfect.  I dare say we’ll be able to tempt a few people with Bristol’s widest bike and accessories range whilst they’re dropping off their post’

Velopost Divisional Manager Phil Smisson  says ‘There has been huge enthusiasm from Bristol retailers to help us with a roll out programme and we expect this to be the first of many partnerships which allows us to provide residents of Bristol with the same cost effective and carbon neutral letter delivery mechanism that is enjoyed by Bristol and Bath businesses.’

CFH Docmail celebrates after one of its team gains NEBOSH Diploma qualification

Somerset-based print and mail company CFH Docmail is celebrating after a senior member of staff graduated with one of the most prestigious and sought after Health and Safety qualifications. 

The NEBOSH Diploma is one of the most comprehensive qualifications in terms of the amount of effort involved and the time required to complete all of the work. Pat Snooks, Process Control Manager at its Bath site, graduated from Warwick University after dedicating 18 months to this qualification.

Pitched to the academic equivalent of a  degree level qualification, the intensive NEBOSH course involved Pat studying with Caerphilly-based Santia Consulting, passing three exams and submitting an 8,000 word assessment. Having gained the NEBOSH General Certificate qualification in 2010, this was a natural progression. Pat comments, "The NEBOSH National Diploma required in the region of 475 study hours but I had the full support and encouragement of CFH Docmail and my family throughout.

"It has been a very tough 18 months of learning and study but proves that you are never too old to learn! Graduating was a very proud moment and the qualification has already proved invaluable within my daily work. It has allowed me to develop my knowledge and provide professional and practical advice on strategic health and safety decision-making within the CFH group."
