We recently re-located our Stores department to another unit on site due to expansion and we are forever adding to the already comprehensive suite of products we offer as a business. Therefore the importance of tightly managing stock we hold is significant and we firmly believe Percy is the right man for the job, both present and future.

Percy is a great example of SWC’s commitment to ‘grow staff from within’ having started part-time 5 years ago with ‘brush in hand’ and we look forward to helping him develop further over the years to come.

8, 9, 10 KM Ken!

Our very own Ken Boak here at SWC Trade Frames, with his unrivalled reputation for excellent customer service, and his delicious home-made cakes that we’re all massive fans of, is taking on a big challenge this year to celebrate his milestone 60th birthday.

Ken, otherwise known as 8, 9, 10… is running a 10K marathon!

Ken Boak

Under his own admission, Ken tells us that ‘the only thing he has run since leaving school is a bath’, so we’ve arranged for a few extra paramedics to be on standby!

Ken will be running alongside his sons, James and Mark as well as daughter Becki on Sunday 21st October & he is hoping to raise some money for his chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK.

Ken is a true gentleman who regularly gives back to the community. He is a fantastic role model to all those around him. If for every time Ken has helped someone out, a donation of £1 was made, then we’d reach the target of £1,000 overnight!

Please follow the link below to Ken’s just giving page & make his huge effort even more worthwhile by helping him to raise money & awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.

Good luck Ken!

In the spotlight…..

By day, Paul Margetts is a mild mannered Transport & Logistics Manager at SWC, but outside of this Paul is a real local hero who volunteers for Her Majesty’s Coastguard search and rescue team within the Scarborough borough. Saving lives whilst risking their own, is an everyday occurrence for the fearless teams of rescuers and emergency services up and down the country.

When we go home at night after work to relax & put our feet up, when needed, Paul is out saving lives, almost always in the face of adversity, which is an incredible contribution to the local community and a role with responsibilities that command our utmost respect.

As an unpaid volunteer, Paul together with the other emergency services do an inspiring and truly fantastic job. We are all very proud of these deserving gallant heroes who we give our thanks, praise & recognition too.


A word from Paul….

I joined HM Coastguard on 31 July 2012 after a lengthy but interesting recruitment and selection process. Once accepted into the Scarborough Team I had to undergo a lot of training in order to ensure that I was competent in the basics of being a Coastguard Rescue Officer (CRO). This process can take around 1 year to complete, but I was pretty keen so I made sure I put the extra hours and time into the role so that I could put myself forward for the relevant tests in order to become an active team member sooner rather than later. Within around 2 months I had managed to get myself to the required knowledge level, therefore I was issued with my pager and allowed to attend emergency call-outs. Over the coming months/years I increased my knowledge and experience by being an active team member as I pretty much attended every call-out and training session during that time.


During my first few years as a CRO I was based in Whitby through the day with my previous job, therefore, I carried a pager for that area and attended any daytime call-outs. My then employer was happy for me to leave work to attend these calls, providing I made the hours up, which I did. Responding to incidents for the Scarborough and Whitby Team(s) gave me a response area from the Blue Dolphin Caravan Park in the souh to the north or Staithes, due to the overlap of resources. I absolutely loved being on-call for these two areas, although it did get very difficult at times due to the pressures of work and the pressures of some of the incidents that I/we were tasked to. In the 7 years I have been a member of HM Coastguard I would say that I have attended hundreds of incidents and I believe that I have learnt something new from every one that I’ve been involved with.
