      May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts during the Christmas and New Year shifts.  The works were not easy by any stretch of the imagination, compounded by adverse weather conditions , working away from home and site conditions that were not ideal.  We completed the works as far as we could and handed back both possessions on time without any accidents or incidents which we should be proud of.  We had a couple of high level visits from the client who were content with our efforts and achievements.
