On Friday 3rd April 2020 we were alerted by a member to an email sent to them by an online publication – https://www.constructionviewonline.co.uk

The title of this email is ‘As discussed with British Woodworking Federation’ and describes an exclusive ‘Supplier Guide’ promotion with us. Please be aware that no such collaboration was agreed. The company have been contacted and couldn’t provide any details – such as the name of a colleague who agreed to this, time and date of any phone call or an official email. When our CEO, Helen Hewitt, spoke with them, they apparently took our member data from the Find a Supplier section on our website. Please ignore this email from them.

The BWF team are really sorry for any inconvenience this email might have caused at this difficult time for all UK businesses. Please be assured, that if we were to ever engage in a media partnership we would contact our members ourselves.
