I worked with an ex Pryor operator called Nick Dawkins down at the Langage power station job in Plymouth in 2007/08, Anyone know him?. He worked for Kiers as a supervisor on this job doing Groundworks etc.

No Gary. I started on another job and didn't see the completion of the power station job we were on. I haven't seen nick since that job and i don't know if he's still working for kiers either. I do agree with you he is a thoroughly nice bloke and very handy with that pen of his ;) ;) .
