Devon Coast to Coast Challenge for The Brain Tumour Charity

Just two days to go until young electrical apprentice Luke Wigley sets off with family member Spencer to cycle from coast to coast across Devon raising money for The Brain Tumour Charity.

They recently lost their uncle, Ron Palin, to a brain tumour and are taking extraordinary measures to give something back. Please give generously and help them to achieve their goal.

They take a winding route, up hill and down dale (lots of them!), from the harbour in Ilfracombe on the North coast, taking in Barnstaple, Okehampton and skirting Dartmoor and Tavistock. All being well they will finally finish at the ferry terminal in Plymouth on Sunday.

Luke WigleyThey’re not professional cyclists by any means so it’s certain to be quite a challenge. Here he is, looking slightly glum though it has to be said, probably at the thought of all the hills ahead. We’re pretty sure he’ll be grinning from ear to ear afterwards!

The map of the route is sold commercially so we’re unable to reproduce it here but you can read more about it at the link below..

50 Years as an NICEIC Approved Contractor

Celebrating 50 Years as an NICEIC Approved Contractor

This week we are celebrating!

Most people are familiar with the NICEIC, maybe without even realising it. It is the body who works to ensure that electrical contractors carry out electrical work safely and to a high and consistent standard.

It was formed some 60 years ago now, at a time when there was a lack of any uniformity governing standards of workmanship and electrical safety. As part of their ongoing anniversary celebrations they are reaching out in recognition of some of their longest registered members.

We are very pleased to rank among them. Chapmans marks a significant milestone too with 50 years as an NICEIC approved electrical contractor!

Chapmans was first established way back in 1925 by a young Mr. Ewart Chapman. An electrical contractor from the outset at a time when electricity was starting to become quite widely used in industry and starting to enter the home. A few years later he opened a small shop, stocking radios and accumulators – the original type of battery – and various other electrical accoutrements.

It’s a vastly different world we live in today. An exciting one where technology advances almost daily. Chapmans has changed along with it and grown, but it remains a family run business to this day.

It’s this long heritage which instils us with an uncommon focus on service, safety and high standards of workmanship, so we’re very proud to join NICEIC in their celebrations. Look out for the certificate next time you’re in!
