No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Redundancies at Caithness
« on: August 10, 2006, 12:33:58 PM »
Nine workers were made redundant at the Perth factory yesterday,This included five of the glasshouse workers.Unfortunately this included my good friend and top maker Harry Mckay.There are no more redundancies planned and the administrators hope to have offers by next week for the glassworks as a going concern.We can only hope they are right in that assumption. :(

Let's hope that another glasshouse will act fast and snap him up, Allan, Commiserations to the nine who have been laid off. Let's also hope there are no more, and that a rescue will happen very soon.
