Warehouse re-configuration to be able to store more food
Over the past few days the warehouse at Highfield Road has been reconfigured to provide greater storage and to allow a safer environment in which to work.
Work began last Thursday and the small store room has been transformed into an area for our non-food products and an administrative area, so freeing up the whole of the warehouse space for storage and greater work area.
The narrow shelves which stored the completed food boxes (below right) have been replaced with wider units that prevent the boxes tipping on to the floor - much safer for everyone. The pictures below show the boxes sitting on the wider shelving (below left). A new working area has been added to help with the daily box distribution tasks.
Thank you to all those that helped move/ build/ dismantle as necessary in the Thursday, Friday and Monday Teams and to everyone who managed to keep working whilst the work was on-going. The number of boxes we are required to fill each day continues to rise!
Adrian would also like to thank those on the Friday Team who helped when when things a little awry ending in a hospital visit. Staff at Cockermouth hospital were amazing.
