Blue Flame Turns 30!

Posted by

2018 is a special year for Blue Flame as we are celebrating our 30th Anniversary.

We officially turn 30 on October 16th but as it’s a special anniversary we thought we’d use the whole of 2018 to celebrate!!

We plan to mark the occasion by hosting a series of events throughout the year with everything from Quiz Nights to Bake Sales planned. We have also decided to fundraise throughout all of these events for our Charity of the Year – Children’s Hospice South West. We will keep you updated throughout the year of all the events we have planned and would love for you all to get involved.

Blue Flame began in 1988 when our Directors Paul Smith & Mark Bolitho left the Gas Board and set up on their own. They began with just the 2 of them and 1 van and over the last 30 years have developed the business to employ nearly 100 local people and a fleet of 60+ vehicles.

Mark said, “There have been a lot of changes in the industry over the last 30 years, especially the growth of renewables and I’m pleased with how we’ve adapted to stay ahead of the competition.”

Fellow Director Paul said “My biggest achievement since establishing Blue flame has been the apprenticeship programme. It is great to have supported so many people to learn a trade and build a career, many of whom have gone on to become senior managers within the company”

Details of our upcoming events as well of details of how you can donate to our fundraising for Childrens Hospice South West will be available soon.  Give our Facebook Page a like and follow us on Twitter for all the news.
