Tilehurst Roofing have added a new charity to our list of groups we will help this year.As we carry out a lot of works for Guide Dogs for the Blind at their headquarters in Burghfield.We saw all the lead work and cost thats involved training one of their dogs.We have chosen to help support 'Hudson' a Labrador puppy and hope he can grow into a fully trained guide dog.
Members of our Tilehurst Roofing office team attended a seminar held at The Hunt House, Paulerspury.The seminar focused on maintaining early Rolls Royce cars.We were shown round the house and museum, which provides a safe home for the huge volume of archive materials accumulated by the motor division of Rolls Royce.Henry Royce not only perfected the "best car in the world" but many other items including electrical operating machinery and even cranes.Emphasis is given to the encouragement of apprentices and young engineers and the promotion of careers in science, technology engineering and mathematics.Tilehurst Roofing are donating funds to help the foundation in their good work.This country has very few apprentices in this field, and as Henry Royce proved in his cars, we can still be a force to be reckoned with on the world market.
So whats wrong with you solo and side car riders.We quad boys were ready to Rock 'n' Roll on Sunday.But due to lack of entries, the event was cancelled.Tilehurst Roofing are supporting the trophies this year to help the event succeed.Please show your support, to help encourage tracks to remain open for us.
Dude the Tilehurst Roofing duck, made his second race appearance at Wimborne.Hanging on for grim death he and John managed a third place.Dude said afterwards "It was hard out there, but they didnt ruffle my feathers" Dude jumped onto a KTM 450 on Sunday, but unfortunately crashed on a fast corner.He sustained a stretched head and a sore beak.
The Tilehurst Roofing sponsored team Elliott had a busy weekend.Two race meetings in 2 days and a broken nose. The first a warm and sunny Wimborne, hosted by the Wimborne Motor Cycle Club.Saw our own legend John Elliott qualify through the 3 No Moto's to gain entry into the grasstrack speedway final.The six finalists all showed quality pace and racing skills.John managed to hold off a strong field to finish 3rd.After the event, a presentation was held, and with the third place medal, came £10.00 prize money.Not like the old days...John. The Sunday saw Team Elliott roll into Binstead for the South Hants Scramble Club's first round of a mini series sponsored by Tilehurst Roofing.There was a very strong turn out of quads, with very fast action.Mr Elliott again managed 3rd overall, despite head butting his handlebars and braking his nose....Ouch! Next meet - 20th July - Hawbridge Farm, Near Alton.
Dude the duck made his first appearance at the race track on Sunday.Proudly sitting on the front mudguard of Nick and Pau'ls side car outfit, he showed no nerves as he raced around the dusty and rough track.If any children or adults for that matter, would like a free Dude the duck, please call in our showroom in the Tilehurst Village Triangle.
