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’
