Please meet our team, they are all here to help you through your project so you get exactly what you want with as much ease and simplicity as possible.

Cliff Thrumble

Managing Director

I love learning, and through my career I’ve learnt something new every day. I’m a bench joiner by trade and worked my way up the career ladder. I’m very fortunate that I work alongside my lifelong friend Simon and we both enjoy running the company. The thing that I get the biggest kick out of is finding a solution to any problem and getting great feedback from our customers about our business. I love meeting people and giving them a great service, one which will inspire them to recommend us over and over.

Simon Pitcher


I have lived in Christchurch all my life and I’m never surprised to find when I visit a client that I know a family member. I’m a fully qualified bench joiner and have been fitting UPVC windows for some 20 years. My skill is surveying, I can see what’s needed and advise on the best product. I strongly believe the customer is in charge and that’s why I simply collect the relevant information and send them an estimate to read and consider at their own leisure. I hate to pressurise people.

Janet Hammond

Project Co-Ordinator

Janet has been in the window industry for over 20 years, working her way up through a joinery company before starting with us. She is very hardworking and loyal and has a great eye for detail. If she doesn’t know the answer to your question she will research it and find out for herself, as much as for you. An extremely dedicated employee and we are lucky to have her as part of the team.

Shane Austin

Sales & Operations Manager

Shane worked through the company becoming a very skilful fitter, but always wanting to better himself and grow has pushed to become one of our Project Co-ordinators. With his depth of knowledge in fitting, he is well suited to carry out surveys. This coupled with his friendly and relaxed demeanour, he has been a hit with our clients . He takes his job very personally and will make sure he does all in his power to make sure it runs smoothly.

Sarah Kyriakides

Customer Liaison

Sarah is a great asset to our team. Relocated from London she has brought her past job efficiency and has an infectious laugh and smile that puts you at ease.
Our past customers adore her as she sends out a massive thank you, when they recommend us, and it goes to order. Sarah is the oil in the Boyland Team and helps us all work smoothly.

Ellie Pitcher

Admin Assistant

Ellie has joined us straight from school under our apprenticeship scheme whilst studying business. There’s no better place to learn than combining theory with practise. She is extremely bright and has picked up the systems and processes very quickly and were looking forward to Ellie having an impact on our business in the years to come .

Meet the team


I’m confident of all our lads; they are all very skilled at fitting and work hard to make sure our customers get the service they deserve. The really do read the comments on Checkatrade and love it when people name them and say nice things. Many times, they work in people’s homes alone and not once have I had a complaint about them. They’re a really great bunch of blokes.


There are certain projects that we don’t need full time employed staff for, so we have a great team of sub-contractors which we have built great relationships over the years. Just like our fitters, I trust them all and their level of customer service is exceptional. We have a team to take on any project including plumbers, electricians, plasterers, bricklayers, scaffolders, carpenters.
