Battle of Britain Witness Testimony
“I would like to thank Hightown Group for the opportunity of this experience. It brought back a lot of memories both good and sad, remembering my relative who flew in the Battle of Britian. My uncle was my inspiration to join up myself and have a good career. Sadly over the last few years since my wife passed away I have not had the confidence to get out and mix with people; this experience has been great, to meet new people moving forward with like minded experiences”.
Battle Field Tour of Ypres in Commemoration of WW1
“A very powerful experience that allowed us as a group to take in the level of personal sacrifice these people gave for our country. A massive thanks to Hightown Group for allowing us the opportunity to visit this place. The memories will stay forever and the friendships on this trip will last also. This trip has allowed us also to be introduced to Former Forces Support for our veterans moving forward, so thanks to all”.
F.A.C.T Trip to Liverpool
“This trip was a reward for achieving in our Cadet Centre, on route to Liverpool, we got introduced to Hightown Group via their impressive work for LJMU in Liverpool. Once we got to FACT the day went really quickly with the different workshops. Dave explained the creative nature of building design and construction by going on Hightown Group’s fascinating website and looking at some of the great projects they have completed. Thank you so much to Hightown Group for this opportunity to visit a very interesting place, it has inspired us to be creative in the future and not just keep doing the same things”.
Leadership, Confidence and Anger Management at Deafness Resource Centre
“Thank you to Hightown Group for supporting this series of informal workshops with a group of young people. The workshops promoted confidence and leadership for young people in our local community and also introduce strategies of coping with anger both internally and in the community around us. They were informal and we had a great time with Dan and Grant from Former Forces Support whilst learning about ourselves”.
R.A.F Trip to Runnymede
“Thank you to Hightown Group for supporting this very enjoyable, emotional and interesting trip. A massive part of our group is keeping in touch with each other and supporting one another. Transport and funding as we have got older has been an issue. Thankfully Hightown Group supported this great trip through Former Forces Support, a great day and some special pictures and memories shared all day”.
We are also committed to developing our staff through team building, training and reward days to celebrate achievement.
Late last year members of the Hightown Group team took some time out to look at the companies systems and structures with Executive Solutions. Our group also enjoyed team building and development days at the impressive St Helens RLFC ground as well as taking part in clay pigeon shooting at Catton Hall. Watch our short YouTube video to take a look at some of the action.
Hightown Group sponsored a six week programme designed to help unemployed people within the local area gain the skills needed to find employment.
As part of the programme learners gained a forklift truck licence along with Level 2 qualifications in warehousing and storage as well as customer service. Seeing the learners develop and grow in confidence was very important to us and we were delighted to see such a large number of them find employment opportunities.
Hightown Group recently (March 2017) worked with Willowbrook Hospice to promote and support their team of volunteers.
