Off to pastures new…

It’s quite a sad time for us here in The Old Steam Mill as we have to wave goodbye to our brilliant workshop guru James. James walked in here one year ago looking for a job and we snapped him up there and then. Visiting the U.K with his lovely fiance Mel the pair had chosen Brighton to live for their year-long overseas experience.


James at our christmas party, silly hats essential!


It has been a real pleasure working with James and he will certainly be missed amongst the team. It was quite a regular occurrence that we would find him in the workshop over the weekend creating some wonderful piece of furniture, he even hand crafted our loo roll holder from solid oak… a must in any wood workshop!

 They popped in to give us all a beautiful Bonsai tree for the office. Thank you guys, we promise to take good care of it.


Sadly all good things must come to an end and we wish you both all the very best in your new life together back in New Zealand. Make sure you send us plenty of wedding photos come the spring!
