Cumbria Nuclear News and Views - A Snail Goes Faster!

Posted in NuExec Blog

Well quiet is an understatement for the industry right now! I get that budgets have gone up and supply chain spend is going to be more, but when is that going to happen? The supply chain is buckling beneath them as having no work is not sustainable. Redundancies are at an all-time high, businesses are closing offices and pulling out of the industry whilst other SME's are having sleepless nights worrying if their business is sustainable in the current climate! – I however remain optimistic and think that come September / October time Sellafield are going to go "Shit we have this money to spend and we haven't spent it – let's start putting contracts out". Then Tier 2's will get busy which will filter to the 3's and 4's and we will recruit all the exceptional individuals they will need to deliver the projects.

So other than hearing how companies are struggling there isn't much news. You probably already know that the DDP contract is having its value cut. From my understanding it is only going to be worth 25% – 30% of the original value - that is a huge blow to companies that have spent hours on the bid for the work.

Posted in NuExec Blog

Well the whole of the industry seems to be on holiday at the moment which means very little news and even less gossip. So this is a short and sweet blog and will be my last until September when people are back from their holidays and exciting things start happening.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - Will anything get built in Cumbria?

Posted in NuExec Blog

I can't believe we still have sunshine in Cumbria. This has to be the best summer we have had in years. What a shame though for those of us who have to work and can't be outside enjoying it – still at least it has been staying for the weekend.

There have been some very interesting articles out this week about New Build but all remains quite quiet from Sellafield.

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - I did it!

Cumbria Nuclear News & Views - I did it!

This week I certainly feel proud to be in Whitehaven. We had At the Playground music festival on Friday and Saturday and although we had torrential rain people still turned out to enjoy the music. Then on Sunday was finally the day of Hell on The Harbourside. 350 people took part and about 2000 came to watch. Then finally we had the troops homecoming parade which saw our brave troops marching through Whitehaven with thousands turned out to watch. It is so wonderful to see such support for our community.


This week's blog comes out a little earlier in the day than usual and that is because I am off for a lovely long weekend in Manchester and I am taking the afternoon off! As ever I hope you enjoy the blog.

It's as simple as a chocolate transaction!

Written by Emma-Jayne Gooch, Posted in NuExec Blog

Well what a week. I was taught a very important lesson and I think I need to share it with you. I spent a lovely weekend down at Suffolk visiting my best friend. On the way home my partner got 3 kinder eggs out of his bag. He gave one each to the children and asked me if I wanted one. "Yeah go on then I said." Are you sure you want it? Was his reply. So obviously in my mind I was thinking that he was trying to talk me out of it and he was right I really shouldn't be having chocolate. So I changed my mind and decided against it. "Go on" he said you've been really good this weekend, but I was adamant I was not going to eat the chocolate. From that point on he seemed very quiet and almost grumpy.

When we got home and the children were in bed he asked me if I wanted the kinder egg again. "No it's too many calories". "But I really want you to have it" he said. "It has something special in it" "What do you mean it has something special in it?" So I took the egg (without eating the chocolate) opened the egg inside and guess what I found? An engagement ring! Stefan then asked me to marry him and I said yes! So the moral of this story is to never turn down chocolate!
