We currently have an exciting opportunity for a professional cook. Onward Enterprises CIC in collaboration with Cornocopia, Harleston has embarked on an exciting new venture, Onward Enterprises @ The Parlour. Onward Enterprises @ The Parlour is a cafe providing quality food and refreshments within a cafe staffed by adults with learning difficulties, on the autism spectrum and with enduring mental health issues who are supported by key staff front of house and within the kitchen.

2007 was a very significant year, my wife to be, Ruth , was working for an agency. A ‘temping’ Job for Onwards Telford Way, Thetford. The work and the Team immediately engaged Ruth. I was subsequently asked if I could spare a bit of time for a “holiday” to Butlins Eastbourne. It was my first year of volunteering /support for our friends, the team. An experience from which I have never looked back. I have to this day, supported our Onwards Family.
I work for National Grid as a project engineer/manager. The title is a general description for a job without any real limits, where experience and knowledge continue to expand. This has been reflected with my ‘Onwards’ voluntary work.
Starting with The Butlin’s support it continued into working and supporting ‘The Panto’ .
These two events are the high points of mine and the “Onwards” year.
Since2007, Ruth and me have moved jobs , moved from Norfolk to Kent , got married , become grandparents.
But despite this and an ever-changing pattern of our life, we have maintained passion for the Onwards way of life.
Demands on Ruth’s time (Grandchildren, business) have put a limit on Ruth’s support. Our experience has made us review the importance of supporting community. Ruth and National Grid have allowed me flexibility to continue to support all my friends in the “Butlin’s” holiday Team and Panto Crew to this time and I hope for the future.
