Exeter Chiefs made the perfect start to the Champions Cup, Europe’s senior rugby competition with a hard fought win over Glasgow. The opening 10 mintues were not that written in the script and put Exeter 10 points down, the players regrouped and battled on with tries of Sam Simonds on his Euro Debut and the extras added by Gareth Steenson. The game finished 24-15. The game was enjoyed by MJ Stevens Staff and Barratt David Wilson Exeter.
October starts with a new site for the company at Sherbrone for Persimmon Homes. With over 20 houses already sold this is sure to be a high flying site and continued work for our labourforce. MJ Stevens will be undertaking the Drylining, Painting and cermaic wall tiling on this development, a great start to the month.
Thank you to Persimmon for rewarding our efforts and valuing our long term relationship.
