Have your say

Havant MP Alan Mak has singled out a Hayling Island joinery as a prime example of a local small business whichsupports apprenticeships.

Medina Joinery, a windows, doors and timber specialist, has signed up to exhibit at Mr Mak’s Havant jobs and apprenticeship fair next Friday.

The workshop on Hayling Island is equipped with specialist computer-aided design equipment, which allows the company to create bespoke products for a range of commercial and private clients.

Given Medina’s record of providing apprenticeships for school-leavers in the area, Mr Mak was keen to promote it as a business success story and a key exhibitor at his jobs fair.

Mr Mak said: ‘By providing apprenticeships and technical jobs, Medina is a great example of a local business that’s looking to the future and investing in young people.’

James Light, the managing director at Medina Joinery at St Mary’s Road, said: ‘We are committed to training local people to become skilled in the joinery profession.

‘Alan’s jobs fair is an excellent opportunity for us to scout talent from the local area as well as promoting our business.’

The jobs and apprenticeship fair is at Warblington School from 10am-4pmon February 19.

It will be opened by celebrity plumber and entrepreneur Charlie Mullins.
