A landmark occasion arrived on 30th July 2020 when Kian Walwyn started employment at J C Walwyn & Sons Ltd. The Grandson of Managing Director Keith Walwyn and son of Steven Walwyn headed straight on to the factory floor working in the veneer department and final checking area. After completing Year 11 at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Ashbourne during his GCSE year, Kian has initially started before returning to 6th Form education at the school.

Keith spoke on his arrival by saying, “It was a great delight to me to see Kian interested in the family business, he’s a strong lad who will try his hand to any manual work and he’s taken excellently to the job in hand. Although he is returning to 6th Form, he will return during the holiday periods and it is a proud moment to see him join the family business.”
