We are pleased to announce the redevelopment of a 25,000 square feet Unit at Springfield. Planning approval has finally been obtained to enable us to redevelop our largest unit, Unit 13 to create:

  1. A new enlarged and home for the Farsley Workhouse Gym and crèche
  2. An onsite café
  3. Meeting rooms available for daily hire
  4. A childrens’ literacy activity centre
  5. Additional storage facilities.

Some internal work has been progressing for a little while, but in the new year work can finally commence to the exterior of the building which will incorporate a new entrance stairwell building, replacing the old canopy and scissor lift, as well as extensive cladding to the building.

It is hoped the majority of the work will be completed by Spring and the new facilities will greatly improve the appearance of the site and offer enhanced leisure facilities.

The Phoenix Works, renewable energy specialists, are pleased to announce their move to larger premises within Springfield Commercial Centre, Farsley. The expansion to Unit 59-62 has seen an increase in both warehouse and office space. The Phoenix Works have grown significantly since their initial move to the Springfield complex, taking on many new revenue streams. They offer; domestic and commercial solar PV system design and installation, biomass heating solutions, specialist electrical services and provide electric vehicle charging stations for domestic, commercial and public sectors.

One recent, high profile, project is an installation of sixteen black solar panels with an innovative micro inverter monitoring system at St Matthew’s Church in Bankfoot, Bradford. The project was completed recently after six months of planning and project design, which ensured the finish of the installation was sympathetic to the historic building’s Grade II status. Account Manager at The Phoenix Works, Nicola Newby, said “This is the second church project I have worked on in West Yorkshire. The combination of environmental and financial savings will really benefit the church, reducing both their Carbon Footprint and electricity bills significantly.”

We are delighted to welcome Poppies to their new home.  They have been providing high quality domestic services across North West Leeds for eleven years, based in Horsforth. Poppies are part of a franchise group that has been trading for over thirty five years, with the same high standards and expectations across the country. Many of their clients – over one hundred and fifty in total - have been with them for many years, their twenty five staff likewise.

Poppies main work is regular cleaning services in people’s homes, ranging from services for the elderly on a monthly or fortnightly basis, to large beautiful properties which in the past may have employed their own staff, with many busy working families in between.  They also provide “one off” services:  these can be for landlords or tenants, following building work, a party, or to help during periods of sickness or injury.  Poppies work closely with a number of letting agents, and also with Social Services. They always visit a client before providing a service, to ensure that they can provide a service that meets their needs and priorities, and of course Poppies are properly insured.

Their staff are trained, vetted and fully employed.  They have a great team, and are always ‘here to help’
