And so to Scunthorpe
Well, summer's gone and I'm finally allowed outside!
I'm just starting a three/four month stint at Corus' Scunthorpe Steelworks on the p-way maintenance contract which VolkerRail has - this is something which the company has held for many years through its various guises, going right back to the company's days as Grant Lyon Eagre when industrial work formed a major part of the company's activities.
I must admit that both being outside and 'hands on' suit me much better than being in an office! As some of you may know I'm dyslexic and as such have a mind which is wired a little differently from 'normal' people - the thought of ongoing/endless admin both seriously stresses me and fills me with dread. As a result I'm much happier and feel so much more at ease with practical matters - so I'm very much looking forward to this latest move although I'm rather disappointed to miss the next stage of works on the Hull Docks Project. However, it's not bad getting to see a network like that at the steelworks! It's also a real pleasure to work in an area so rich in industrial heritage.
