Thanks for the mention - "Your Scottish Borders".

The Scottish Borders
๐Ÿ“น Priorwood House, Melrose by Above The Borders

Priorwood House - also known as Prior's Wood, Priorbank, Prior's Bank - is a Georgian House with an interesting history and even more interesting occupants. It has been in the hands of a General, an archaeologist and most recently, the Scottish Youth Hostel Association.

It was purchased by local house builders, JS Crawford 3rd Generation Limited, in 2015, who currently share the building with Mirador Analytics. They moved into the space in late 2016 and will be joined by other local business once further renovations have been made.

After an overwhelming response to our apprenticeship bricklaying vacancy we are pleased to welcome Andrew Kennedy.

Andrew is 17 years old and lives in Burncastle, just outside Lauder, where he attended Channnelkirk Primary School and Earlston High. Andrew is a gym junkie and can be found in the gym training upto 5 times a week, his other hobbies include mountain biking and cooking.

We asked Andrew what his dream job would be, his reply was a PT to Celebrities. His idol is Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he would love to swap lives with him for a day. I'm sure Arnie would welcome a day brick laying ๐Ÿ™‚

Andrew will be with us for 4 years where he will have a mixture of on site learning and college days. Good Luck Andrew and a warm welcome from everyone at Crawfords.

We would like you all to join us in welcoming Josh Loftus to our team as our newest Joinery Apprentice. At 24 years old, Josh has qualified for a 2-year, adult apprenticeship. This route requires the apprentice to complete the same objectives and provide the same evidence of knowledge and skill as the 4-year apprenticeship but is condensed into the 2 years. This does require a lot of dedication and hard work from the apprentice, however having had Josh working here for the last 4 weeks, we are confident he has what it takes.

Josh was born in York but moved to Galashiels when he was 5 years old and has lived there ever since. Before coming to work at J S Crawfords, Josh worked as a Timber Fabricator at Oregon Timber. Just as many of his Co-workers, Josh is a keen sportsman and currently plays for Leithen Rovers AFC. In addition, Josh has played Cricket for Melrose for the last 10 years and is currently their captain.

When we asked Josh what his goals for the future are, he replied simply โ€˜to become a fully qualified joiner at JS Crawfordโ€™. We have no doubt Josh can and will achieve this and look forward to supporting him through this stage of his career.
