The first of these for Shadbolt took place at Great Notley Discovery Centre and training sessions have been taking place subsequently on a weekly basis.
SHADBOLT STRIKE GOLD AGAIN!
Shadbolt is delighted to report that it has recently undergone an annual audit and successfully satisfied all relevant criteria to allow renewal of GOLD accreditation from Transport for London's Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
FORS is a voluntary certification scheme aimed at ensuring fleet operators work lawfully and to their best possible practices with the overall aim of making London’s roads safer, cleaner and less congested. To achieve the accreditation, Shadbolt is required to demonstrate continuing compliance with all current legislative requirements and also that it is striving to improve vehicle/transport safety, transport efficiency, environmental awareness and driver training and accountability.
For major construction projects within the London area, membership of FORS is becoming mandatory for goods vehicles.

The Shadbolt road show returns to The Briggait and, once again, teams up with a fabulous selection of leading architectural building product brands.
With each company’s respective product range showcased under one roof, architects and designers will get the opportunity to find everything they need, and more, for all their commercial and residential projects.
We look forward to seeing you there!
