With a little help from our friends

In June 67 the Beatles released the song “With A Little Help From My Friends.” Last week I was overseeing our CPO men finish off the wall and fence we had been working on for the past few months and found myself humming the above tune.

This project has been fully backed by The Triangle Trust to whom we are grateful for putting their trust and finance into our vision. Their financial input covered all the costs of pulling down “The Wall” and old unsafe fencing that has stood there for 50 years.

This basic structure allowed me to show and inform our charges about planning (drawings), demolition, foundation and building brick work before we went on to paint the fence and gates that we had ordered (and measured up) from an outside contractor.

Our team at Open Gates put in an excellent effort as can be seen by the results on show. We don’t get two chances to make a first impression and the factory is now being transferred into an asset for the area and people of Possil, all because we had a little help from our friends.

  • Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually
    understands what they are talking about on the net. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    A lot more people must read this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you
    definitely possess the gift.

  • Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have
    you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would
    value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    • Hi Brad
      Sorry about the time to respond but I must admit that time is usually running against me. I have a pasion for writing and would like nothing better to put this vision into print and will do some day soon.
      The only reason I have managed to get this reply to you is that my computer friend dropped in and sorted my email account. I did manage to publish a book in 2000 called “Where the Rubber Meets the Road” by Pat Clark and distributed most of them into Scottish Prisons.
      So I hope to start some type of blog (I don’t even know how that’s done) once I have free time.
      Thank you for your comment, it was encouraging.
      Fondest regards
      Pat
      ps. It would be great to respond to every email sent, So I am saying thank you to them all through your email Cheers
