On Monday 12th December we held the ‘Cutting of the Ribbon’ Ceremony to mark the start of the external demolition. Guests included local dignitaries; Nick Toogood-Mayor of Radstock, Ron Hopkins, Paul Millard & Eleanor Jackson members of Westfield & Radstock Council, Craig Doughty, Jonathan Rich, Lynda Robertson & Derek Roberts-members of the Society’s Board of Directors, Don Morris, CEO of Radstock Co-operative Society, Matthew Hinds from Bath Demolition & Stephen Hickson from Rider Levett Bucknell, Susie Watkins-Radstock Nub also attended, along with our winner of the internal raffle- Chris Randall, Retail Operations Merchandising Assortment Planner.
Chris was presented with hampers full of Co-op goodies & had the honour of ‘Cutting the Ribbon’ to mark the historic event. We would once again like to thank all colleagues who entered the raffle & helped to raise a fantastic amount of £100- which has been matched by both Bath Demolition & Rider Levett Bucknell. Bringing our total to £300- this will be split between ‘Swan Transport’ & ‘Creativity Works’, who are both charities based in Radstock.
Since Monday- movement on site has been rapid, with Bath Demolition working swiftly to take down the building. They expect the whole of the building to be down before Christmas.
