“Committed to Quality Refurbishment”

 

The TRS Office has embarked on a weight loss programme to ensure that we are at peak physical & mental fitness for 2016!!!

So far the 6 office staff  have a combined weight loss of 16.8kg, 2.64 stones; with Joint MD Craig Wright storming ahead with a personal  loss of 7.5kg.

Just another way to be “committed to quality refurbishment”

CDM Refresher Training 2015

The training room was in full action again today as TRS made sure its management team was fully briefed following the recent changes in health, safety and welfare legislation.

All jobs now require a construction phase health and safety plan, irrespective of the size. We have always had a very positive approach to health and safety and only a few additional modifications to our paperwork are required.

We continue to be very proud of our accident free safety record.

GOLF DAY FOR THE JESSIE MAY TRUST…

We were all very happy to be involved with the Imtech-Inviron golf day held last week  in aid of the Jessie May Trust at the Bristol Golf Club.

A fantastic day was had by all,  and the TRS male fraternity went on to party the night away in the metropolis that is Chipping Sodbury for the opening match of the Rugby World Cup.

Thank you to everyone who supported Diane Wright in her battle with cancer  and her great friend Amanda Lake who ‘Braved the Shave’ for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Amanda has managed to raise an incredible £3.574.00 of a £2,000.00 target making her one of the top ‘Brave the Shave’ fund raisers, a truly inspiring effort at an incredibly sad time.

Thank you to everyone who has donated, Amanda’s fundraising page is still available here:

Every day is a school day…

Nigel Kay, our Business Development Manager/Director has spent a day with year 10 students at the Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar. The purpose of the day is to give the students an insight into working life prior to them going out on work experience and they do teamwork exercises as well as realising how their educational skills can translate into the work place.

“ I run a business exercise that requires the students to develop a strategy to overcome competition from a larger organisation. We then look at the commerciality of their ideas. Often there are some really clever and well thought through strategies; we’ve employed one or two ourselves, Nigel admitted.

Kings of Wessex Academy are to be congratulated in bringing students and business together is such a way.

TRS Charity 2015

Stuart Massey our Joint MD has committed himself to competing in an ironman 70.3 triathlon on 14th June in support of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research?  Yes that’s right, all 20 stones of him!

Here in the office we are laughing ourselves silly as this involves a 1.9 mile swim in open water, a 90 km bike ride and a 21.1km run.  As of the 5th of February he was up to running 3km.   I’m sure you will agree not the most auspicious start.  He has been heard to say that  “perhaps I should have supported the British Heart Foundation”.

Last year with your  generous help we were part of a team that managed to raise £64,000.00 for The  Ruskin Mill Trust.  An enormous amount of money for a wonderful local charity.

So fit he can still smile, and sing, and dance...

So fit he can still smile, and sing, and dance…

Once again thank you for your kindness in supporting our chosen charities and let’s keep our fingers crossed he manages to pass  the finishing line, he really  is going to need all the help he can get!
