In memory of Nikki Potter

1984 - 2020

Nikki was a huge influence on all the team after Dan, her brother, persuaded her to help him with the paper work.

Like all things she did nik excelled in her role developing good relationships with customers and suppliers alike. Instant scenery would not be in the position it is today without her hard work and dedication to the job she loved.

After falling ill for a second time in late 2019 she refused to give up work and as always she was the go to person to solve problems. Nik tragically lost her fight with Breast cancer in July 2020.

We, along with our customer, her family and friends have actively raised over £6k for the worcester haven breast cancer charity.

Nikki is greatly missed and was a great colleague, mum, daughter sister, wife and friend. But most she was a beautiful person who was full of fun laughter and life.
