When we are not delivering top quality real wood kitchen worksurfaces to our vast array of customers around the country, we are out supporting local sporting heroes throughout Gloucestershire.
We support a number of teams and individuals, the full list of which can be found on our sponsorship page. This autumn the cricket season draws to a close, Gloucester’s Rugby ambitions kick off, and Autograss continues to tear up the track just a couple of miles from our Quedgeley HQ.
Gloucester Rugby and Henry Trinder
Henry has unfortunately been side-lined with a knee injury since February this year, but still continues to do excellent work in the community, whilst he aims to return to the team around Christmas.
In the meantime, Henry has been working as the team’s ambassador to youth teams and helping to endorse the new pre-season West Country Challenge Cup.
Henry also got married in the summer, so congratulations to both him and the lucky bride!
With the Rugby World Cup taking a lot of the attention at Kingsholm over the next few months, members of our team will be at every game to cheer on the international competitors. Gloucester, meanwhile, will be playing their first games against Bath and Exeter at the Bristol Memorial Stadium.

This week we received the fantastic news from Frocester that – with still one game left to play – they have officially retained the Premier 1 title for another year.
In their last game against Taunton Dean, Nick Trainor’s men were as imposing as ever with a fantastic score of 291-6.
With an incredibly strong team behind him, Paul Muchall was declared star of the season after scoring his first century for the club.
We look forward to continuing to support Frocester Cricket Club in their ongoing success – congratulations to the whole team!
Stuart Deacon – Autograss Racing

Autograss racing is a fast-paced and challenging sport, with plenty of trials and tribulations facing every driver on the grid.
Despite this, our man Stuart Deacon has had a highly commendable season so far, and currently sits 8th in the UK Autograss Championship.
With numerous top 3 finishes under his belt, Stuart experienced gearbox issues that slightly hampered his season, but this hasn’t stopped him pushing on, with a fantastic 3rd place finish at York earlier in August.
Outside of the UKAC championship, Stuart has placed first in races at Hereford, Radford and Pennien in Derbyshire. With the season finishing towards the end of October, Stuart tells us he plans to build a new car for next year, based on a classic Mini pickup chassis. Good luck Stuart!
