ABC HELPS IN REFUGEE CRISIS

syrian children refugees lamb

Our Company traces its roots back to the 1970's when it was started by Andy Wislocki. His parents were refugees who, in 1945 had escaped the carnage and chaos of the Second World War and Andy was brought up experiencing a degree of prejudice and hostility - but also a great deal of kindness from the enlightened people in Britain at that time. Fast-forward several decades and now we ourselves are proud to be able to help some of the displaced people who have escaped death and destruction in their home countries in the Middle East, and are currently homeless on the Continent. Many are educated and skilled people and they have chosen to risk all in order to try and find a safe haven, while their home countries are being destroyed, their homes bombed and their neighbours killed indiscriminately. They deserve and need our help, and we can help - with minimal personal sacrifice!

So far we have made a few small gestures - we have helped to deliver mattresses to refugees in Romania, and we are helping to deliver food and household necessities to the refugees in "The Jungle" in Calais. We have also made a substantial contribution to help with the production of a TV documentary looking at this crisis from a different angle. It's called "Another News Story"[link], and we hope it will encourage a tide of sympathy and generosity for these suffering men, women and children. It's not about politics or religion - just being a decent human. If you feel able to help, click on the link, and thank you!

SHEPPERTON FLOODING

ABC Flooding 002 opt

We came in on Monday morning 10th February to find the yard and workshop completely flooded - to an average depth of 60cm and rising. A quick trip to the Angling Shop was called for in order to buy waders for all the office and workshop staff. Despite the problems we managed to maintain our power supply and got all of the lorries out and working for the week, parking them on higher ground and ferrying drivers to them every morning and back to their cars after work!
