The group were treated to a presentation where given a summary of 21 years at Ty-Mawr, hearing about how the business came about and how it has grown; from one man and an old bath to what it is today!
The pupils witnessed a mini lime slaking by Nigel Gervis before touring the production works and seeing it all happen on a much larger scale. The group then returned to the training room for a discussion on Health & Safety, and the practicalities and costs of meeting legislation for small manufacturing businesses like this. The group then looked through a Environmental Compliance Checklist and picked out one – Packaging Regulations – and discussed the implications of this for Ty-Mawr as it grows.
Christ College’s Alasdair Copp said: ‘Our thanks to Ty Mawr, and to Nigel and Joyce in particular, for a fascinating insight into their business. They combine real passion, ingenuity and innovation with strong ethical and environmental values, and provide a compelling case for rethinking our approach to how we build and the materials we use. They communicated this brilliantly yesterday and our pupils received an excellent educational experience in the broadest sense.”
Kathryn Gervis of Ty Mawr said: “Days like this are so rewarding in so many ways; they help to renew our enthusiasm for all that we have built and all that it means for us all at Ty-Mawr as well as the wider benefits to buildings and the environment. It is great to be able to take time to share a little of all of this with interested, receptive young minds.”
