In June 2016, we provided materials and labour for Meadowside Pre-School, Backwell, to build their long-awaited outside classroom. Our Operations and Technical Directors, and our Construction Manager went ‘back to the floor’ to construct the roof and decking, creating a fabulous outside space for the children to enjoy all year round.
H Sweet and Sons are proud to sponsor local sporting and community organisations. We’ve enjoyed a long association with Clevedon Rugby Club, with many past and present players amongst our personnel. For the 2016/17 season, we’re sponsoring the Under 6’s team.
We also sponsor Nailsea and Backwell Cider Festival, Ashton and Backwell Football Club and the Nailsea Rotary Club Annual Walks event.
H Sweet has been operating an Apprenticeship Programme since 1999, with many of our Site Managers and Construction Managers having trained through the scheme.
An apprenticeship with H Sweet provides all entrants with a thorough foundation for an exciting and fulfilling career in the Construction industry. At present we offer the following trades: Painting and Decorating, Site Carpentry, Bench Joinery and Electrician.
During the course of an apprenticeship, individuals will work towards an NVQ qualification, gaining hands-on work experience with experienced professionals across a variety of projects, as well as receiving an income alongside their learning. We’re members of the CITB Apprenticeship Scheme, and have selected Didac as our current training provider for the Bench Joinery and Wood Manufacturing schemes.
