HOME FROM HOME FOR GARY
Thirty five years ago Gary Wilson was asked if he fancied doing some labouring to cover for a young boy in his village who had unfortunately broken his leg - little did he know that was to set him on course for a long career in construction.

Gary has lived and worked in the village of Newton Grange, a location Walker Group has been involved with for many years, all his life and has no regrets. His labouring job turned out to be for Grange Estates, a sister company of Walker Group, which specialised in housebuilding in Midlothian. Today Gary is responsible for the maintenance across all our developments.

He said, “I went on to gain my forklift license and then I filled in for people who were off. It’s a great job. I get to speak to everyone in the company and no day is ever the same. I try to encourage all the young people in the business and keep them right. It’s the variety of work that I love. I’ve never looked back. It’s been brilliant.”
