To end this month we have received the paperwork for the second phase of Persimmon Homes’ site in Ivybridge. We have been continually working on various sites in the town for over 3 years now and this looks set to continue. We will be carrying out the drylining, painting and ceramic tiling. It is great to see a long standing customer continues to believe in the company and the service we can offer across so many trades.
What a start to the month! This morning we have been awarded the drylining contract for Bloor Homes in Pinhoe, Exeter. This site is right on our doorstep and ideally located for our Exeter labour, some who have contracted to us for over 35 years. The last site we carried out drylining works for Bloor Homes was in Totness, Baltic Wharf development which consisted of very difficult and technically challenging properties.
Just 4 miles from the centre of Exeter, in a popular and historic village, this collection of new houses in Pinhoe is part of a major community improvement project, which includes new shops, business premises, a community centre, skatepark and play areas. And because it’s by Bloor Homes, you can be sure that each home features the high specification, attention to detail and traditional skilled craftsmanship that a Bloor Homes is known for.
Being keen motorsport enthusiasts we love our racing and cars. Having used Raceworld for a number of years to entertain our clients and staff we couldn’t say no when the opportunity arose to have our livery on the kart. We will be using this to further the Group brand awareness and continue to use it to enjoy time with our client base.
This year MJS Group are sponsoring Exeter Chiefs players Jordon Poole alongside testimonial and Chiefs legend Phil Dollman. It is the first time we have done player sponsorship and we hope it grows the recognition of the brand further, with players of Phil and Jordon’s quality. We will continue to work closely with Phil at Sidmouth RFC, where he holds the head coach position who are also sponsoring him this year and link up with Jordon at events throughout the season.
Our sponsorship consists of programme advert, player branding and match day announcements. We are thrilled to continue our link with the Chiefs and even more so now with the two star players.
This week our repairs and plastic surgeon operative, Tom, has been to MJS sponsored rugby club Sidmouth RFC. We were asked to bring back to life the grandstand which sees hundreds of spectators week in week out watch the team play at the Blackmoore. We have re-plyed the seating area, decorated the inside and sprayed the outside in-keeping with the teams colour scheme. The grandstand is now prepped for the green seats to be installed by the club. We are extremely pleased with the results, as was SRFC Team Manager John Dunn who commented ‘It looks mega, thank you to everyone at MJS Group who continue to support the club by making things happen’
This week started with us being awarded a triple contract for Larkfleet Homes in Cotford St. Luke nr Taunton. On this site we will be undertaking the drylining, decorating and wall tiling. Having worked with Larkfleet on a number of contracts before we are excited to continue our partnership in Somerset. Quantock View is a modern development of 2,3,4 bedroom homes, and the whole of this area is surrounded by outstanding areas of natural beauty, from the Quantocks to the Blackdown Hills, the north and south coasts, and the moors of Exmoor and Dartmoor.The county town of Taunton is only 5 miles away, offering a full range of facilities including independent and high street stores, cafes and a large selection of restaurants serving local and international cuisine.
This week saw another contract added to our ever growing order book. This time for repeat customer Chichester Developments. This new site in Braunton, North Devon gives continuous work for our dryliners, plasterers and renderers in the area. This site follows on from the popular development in Roundswell. We are extremely pleased to have won this site with Chichester and look forward to working with Darren and the team on the new project.
On Wednesday evening we had the privilege of hosting an exclusive evening at Lympstone Manor to mark Phil’s testimonial year and the partnership we have with him. In attendance were Exeter Chiefs Chairman, Tony Rowe, Burrington Estates MD Colin Palmer, Exeter College Head of Apprenticeships Mike Blakeley, Sidmouth RFC Team Manager John Dunn, former Exeter Chiefs Player Moray Low and current team player Greg Holmes. A fantastic evening was had by all in the relaxed environment of Lympstone Manor with Michelin Star food and wines. Overall this event raised £3720 for Phil’s testimonial donating to Devon Air Ambulance and the Exeter Foundation.

Culminating in a fantastic game of rugby against travelling welsh side, Crawshays. The game ended up 56-59 to Crawshay. We were extremely proud to see our branding on the shirts worn by Exeter Chiefs players past and present.
