It is with a real sense of sadness that Godiva has had to cease trading – we just ran out of steam after delays in payment and then when the lockdown came the cash and new work dried up.
Over the years we have had a fantastic team at Godiva. We have done some great jobs, kept people safe and helped to play a small part in bringing some iconic buildings to life in Coventry and across the Midlands. More recently we had reached out into other areas as we followed clients who were expanding. Together our team was making a difference, winning awards, and creating new jobs for local people.
I would like to thank everybody who has worked for us and the clients and suppliers who have supported us through good and difficult times. Also a big thank you to those who stayed with us and showed real loyalty. I want to do everything I can to help them find new jobs and also get through the coronavirus crisis.
Scaffolding is a great industry and it has helped me throughout my career. I am so proud of what I do and the people I have worked with. It has been a family to me and I would be happy to share my experiences with anyone if they think it will help them.
We are in very challenging times and what is really important it that everyone stays safe. COVID-19 is a horrible illness that has affected people I know in different ways. Health and wellbeing of everyone is very important and must not be compromised. So do your most to protect yourselves, your family and your friends.
We will rebuild and create new opportunities and I look forward to meeting again once we are through and on the other side.
