We were more than prepared when we had a request for help from Deborah Wilson Group Chair of Bramley Beaver, Cubs and Scout group to finish, test and certify their new electrical system following a substantial refurbishment of the original 1940s building.
The 2nd Bramley Scout Group has been supporting and shaping young people from the area for over 70 years but their hall needed upgrading to modern standards, including a complete re-wire of the electrics. When their original electrical company went bust before completion it left the Beaver and Scout groups hosting meetings with camping lamps.
Being a Leeds electrical contractor has always been extremely important to us because we know this city, its people are our people, and when there’s a chance to help our own we step up. After our estimator Andy Goodall met with Debra and found out about the group’s lack of power we immediately agreed to help get things back on track.
Adam, one of our commercial electricians, spent a day testing all the lights in the main hall, storerooms, kitchen and bathroom, making sure everything was safe and could be certified.
He tested every circuit in the scout hut distribution board, finding some minor defects on the way and rectifying them as he went allowing, us to issue a satisfactory condition report.
Did you know that back in the early 1900s there used to be an electrician badge? Now, the Scout Association has partnered with the Institution of Engineering and Technology to offer an Electronics Activity badge. Great to see this useful skill being offered to young people.
Our MD, Dean Towers, said: “By donating our time and expertise we were able to help Deborah and members of the 2nd Bramley Scout Group get full use of their hall again. The club has been around as long as we have and hopefully we’ve played a small role in making sure they’re around for another 70 years.”
Deborah added: “We would like to thank Dean and his colleagues for their invaluable help, it is greatly appreciated.”
