Changes to AIM Membership Criteria

The AIM Directors are currently discussing some minor changes to the Membership Criteria, to ensure all members are aware of and compliant with GDPR.

As with other criteria, AIM will be happy to assist members and applicants in preparing for the changes to data protection legislation.

The GDPR comes into effect on 25th May 2018 and will affect all companies that collect, store and use personal data.

J. H. Apsee & Sons

Several AIM members help their local communities by supporting charities, helping at community events or sponsoring local sports teams.

J. H. Apsee & Sons has had close ties with Bridgend Athletic RFC for over four decades and has been a keen sponsor. For the Apsee family, the main reward is the sense that they have made some small contribution to the rugby club’s successes.

Here is the news story as posted on the Barry Gem wesite…

Athletic’s gratitude to long-time sponsors

Bridgend Athletic RFC are once again grateful to Simon Apsee of J.H. Apsee & Sons, removals & storage specialists for sponsoring their recent fixture with Waunarlwydd at the Morganstone Brewery Field.

Simon and his company have been involved with the Athletic across the 40-plus years that they have been trading and are the longest contributing Athletic club sponsors. They also sponsored this season’s all-weather suits for substitutes.

Grandfather John Apsee, founder of the business, became involved with the Athletic when his eldest son, current head coach John, played in the youth in 1977 before representing Maesteg, Bridgend and Wales B at centre.

COVID-19 Statement

Although there is no rule to prevent them from doing so, not all removals businesses are working during the Coronavirus measures advised by the Government.

Those that are working have been provided with clear guidelines by the Government and supported by AIM, with safe working procedures, specific documents and frequent information updates.

Removals firms

Removal firms are able to operate and should follow the latest government guidance on safer working. Where moves are carried out, social distancing should be followed.
Companies should ensure employees understand how to operate safely and communicate this to customers.

  • Removers should contact the household in advance to check that no member of the household is showing symptoms of coronavirus or self-isolating. If they are, works should be delayed.
  • They should also encourage households to ensure all internal doors are open and surfaces and possessions have been cleaned with household cleaning products prior to them entering the property.
  • No work should be carried out by a person who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
  • Removers should wash their hands on entering the property using separate towels of paper towels which need to be washed or disposed of safely after use.
  • Removers should seek to minimise contact with homeowners and remain 2 metres apart from householders at all times.
  • Removers should implement a buddy system and ensure that the same people work together when moving bulky items and furniture.
  • Removers should bring their own refreshments but you should ensure they have access to hand washing facilities, using separate towels or paper towels if possible,
    which should be washed or disposed of safely afterwards.
