Apprentice joiner Callum Farrington shares his favourite job over the past few months – fitting new letter boxes at a supported living property.

Callum and his colleague Richard Gornall fitted the letter boxes at Leonard Cheshire property The Moorings in Garstang, where residents showed their appreciation.

Callum tells us; "The job was given to us as the tenants had been in need of new letter boxes for over a year.

"We fitted the letter boxes at a height so that they can access them without any assistance, allowing them more independence.

"The tenants were lovely and thanked us for doing a good job. They brought us nice, chilled refreshments which was very welcome.

"I really enjoyed working here as I felt like I was really doing something to help, even if it was something as small as getting mail. The appreciation from some of the residents at the time really made my day."

Adam Cookson, Planned Works Team Leader, says; "Callum is doing really well. He works alongside our planned install joiner Richard, mainly installing kitchens.

"The Moorings is a supported living scheme which we have the maintenance contract for. The old mail boxes had been damaged over the years and were becoming unusable. When Richard and Callum got to the site, they met with the site manager and discussed the best option and place for these to go.

"Once installed, all the tenants where made up and I think Richard and Callum enjoyed doing it as well.

"Callum has just finished his second year at college and has been with our team for about four months. He has settled in well and works really hard.

"Everyone he has worked with all talk positively about him and I think he will go on to be a competent joiner."
