Highwire welcomes unusual new arrival!


IMG_0180We did not think the Highwire Bantam  Hen could do it this time of year, meat our little autumn miracle  7 day old “chirpy cheep cheep”! Hardly 1 oz and as big as your little finger but bursting with life!

The highwire hens eat our scrap veg and make us lovely  fresh, golden eggs.

The hen and cockerel where deeply concerned regarding their new arrival and the height IMG_1544 2of their house so we built a passive chick fall prevention system!

Top Safety Accreditation for Highwire!

Local business Higwire  has been  accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. 

Employing 13 people, Highwire is principally involved in the height safety sector.. ’s Highwire’s most recent clients have included major players such as Laing O’ Rourke through to Coca -Cola.

Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Highwire has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

 Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

 Under the safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

 Over one hundred and seventy major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
