THERE appears to have been no activity at the site of a shed and fencing company in weeks.

As previously reported, the Worcester News understands D&J Timber Buildings was last open for trading on Friday (August 11). 

The gates were locked up on August 12 and it seems the firm has not traded since.

A Forfeiture Notice, from landowners Lansdowne Rodway Estates Limited, was posted on the gates of the Unit D1 site of the Blackpole Trading Estate East-based business.

It told the firm, which supplies sheds, garden buildings, landscape products, fencing, Durapost and decorative garden products, that bailiffs acting on behalf of the landlord had "re-entered these premises and the lease is hereby determined".

It also warned D&J Timber Buildings it was under obligation to collect its goods from the site by next Wednesday, (August 30), otherwise bailiffs had the right to dispose of them. 

We visited the site on August 23 - a week after our last visit - and there had been no change. 

Materials were left out in the open in the same position they have been for weeks, and it looks like no one had been on the site since the doors were locked.

A customer was at a second gate, who told us he had come down to see what was happening, as he had had no luck getting through on the phone. 

Attempts to contact the firm's owners have been unsuccessful.

The firm's website, d& is still down and the firm's Facebook site cannot be accessed.

D&J Timber Buildings was included in our Trader of the Week feature in 2022 when the firm, run by mother and son duo Joy and Daniel Cox, announced it was moving from premises to a new larger base. 

The firm moved to Blackpole Trading Estate East 18 months ago.
