Inaugural Tumu Timbers Staff Awards Presentation.

Posted on 08/06/2020 by James Truman

On Saturday 25th July, Tumu Timbers had its annual mid winter function at the Hastings RSA. This event is just one of the ways that the business recognises the efforts of all staff throughout the year and is typically held at this time of the year due to the historic seasonality of the business.
