Work Experience 2011

This week, we had the pleasure of having a pupil from one of our local schools (St Gregory's in Tunbridge Wells) for a few days of work experience.
Harry, pictured above, was able to see the workings of a paper merchant in action, spending some time in our warehouse (wrapping paper!) and in the sample room. I also took him out to visit a printer, Fulmar Colour in Croydon. It was a particularly worthwhile visit as the Croydon site, not only boasts printing, but foiling, die-making, lamination and finishing. It was very kind of Martin Stacey (above) at Fulmar to have taken the time to show us around.
 After the tour of Fulmar, we visited GBH's lovely offices in Chiswick, so he could see what a graphic design company does and thank you very much to Bethan for the time that she spent with us.
...and then back to our warehouse, where he helped wrap mountains of paper having been instructed by two former St Greg's pupils (or Old Gregorians as they are known) Chris Vallis and Neil Fenner!
