Company provides festive cheer

A SCARBOROUGH property maintenance company has reassured residents their Christmas will be as safe as houses after revealing it will be on duty throughout the big day.

Willmott Dixon has announced its 54-strong team will be working Christmas Day with a fully operational service to foil any festive problems which may arise.

Mark Emptage, branch manager for Willmott Dixon, said: “For us, December 25 is just like any other normal working day.

“An emergency team will be on call throughout Christmas Day and the rest of the festive season to make sure they can respond to any problems quickly.

“However, although our team will be working, there’s still plenty of room for a bit of Christmas cheer on the big day itself.

“Our shift system means that the teams will get to enjoy at least a part of the festivities with their families.”

The company is currently working to repair and maintain 4,500 homes in the Scarborough area.
