To help it cope with its growing portfolio, the property department has taken on two estate cleaners, Andrew Barr and Kevin Smith.

Andrew added: “I am thrilled to have started in my role as estate cleaner for the port. It’s such a large estate to cover, which makes my job varied each day, which I enjoy.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to become part of this team and look forward to a long and rewarding career at the port.”
