Carillionamey set to launch new website

Carillionamey will soon be launching a new website to provide a more streamlined and user-friendly experience. Their current website is cluttered and would like to give it a cleaner look. They also want to make it easier for customers to find the information they need. 

However, this website re-launch means that any links or pages you may have bookmarked will no longer work. Once the website has gone live, you'll have to save any new links or bookmark the new pages that you need. A lot of the information we have on the current website has also been updated and some new sections have been added so you'll need to familiarise yourself with these changes as well.

They're committed to ensuring that their performance is continuously improving and want to make sure their website is tailored to customer's needs. They're aiming for the website to go live by the end of May but will have a confirmed go live date next week so keep an eye out for more details.

Tickets for Troops - World Para Athletics Championships - 14th-23rd July 2017 - London

We're teaming up with London 2017 to offer you and your family free tickets to watch world class athletics at the London Stadium in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This is your chance to be part of the roaring crowd cheering former British Army Captain Dave Henson to the finish line.
Less than three years since lighting up the London Stadium at the inaugural Invictus Games, Dave Henson returns to compete on home soil as he targets a medal in the T42 200m.
Henson will look to qualify for Saturday's final alongside legend Richard Whitehead, on an evening which sees unbeatable wheelchair racer Hannah Cockroft kick off her quest for a trio of golds.
One year after his Paralympic bronze medal, Dave Henson will have his eyes on making the podium in the T42 200m final. The former British Army captain will likely compete against Richard Whitehead, who will be aiming to give himself an early 41st birthday present as he defends his world title.

It's the Tick Season

Ticks are small spider-like animals, which are almost invisible to the bare eye. Because of this the ticks become even more dangerous: most of the time you discover a tick after he has bitten the skin and has sucked himself with blood. That is why it is important to check yourself after you have been in grass, bushes, or heath. This includes pets.
