Marshalls held an auction for a ‘Slave for the Day’ with all money going to the charity Mind for Better Mental Health and we as contractors were bidding for someone from Marshalls to be the slave for the day and I won this man, lol!
Today my area assessor from Marshalls Ray Stevenson, a former block paver himself and now working for Marshalls came to be our slave.
It was a wet raining day so what a better time to cash in?!
I have known Ray a while and he’s told me lots of story’s of how good he is, and it was about time to push him to see what he could really do!
We had Ray laying blocks, cutting, cleaning up…… you name it he did it and as you would expect he was a good sport, worked hard with no complaints and did a great job.
I also got a signed Jeff Hurst t-shirt which was awesome and topped the day off.
Thank you Ray, good work for a great cause.
We were delighted when Fordham Pre-School asked us to transform their children’s outside play area.
We’re even more delighted to share the word from their newsletter:
Over the summer Andy and his team at AMS Building & Landscaping completed transformed the overgrown area at the back of our building to give us a mud kitchen, a sensory garden and an allotment which the children are absolutely loving!
The work was paid for with the £12000 grant we were lucky enough to receive through the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and on Friday 30th September, we combined the Grand Opening of the play area with a fundraising Macmillan Coffee Morning. Reverend Mike Banyard, together with Alistair Thomson and Becky Reville from Newmarket Tesco, performed the opening ceremony in front of a large crowd of parents, children and supporters.
Thank you to all those who baked such amazing cakes, to the Fordham Co-op for their generous donation and to all those who attended and helped us celebrate our good fortune and raise over £200 for the Macmillan charity.
As of last Friday we have been accepted as a Brett approved installer.

AMS Building & Landscaping are very proud to announce that we won prizes for our recent work at last night’s Marshalls Register Awards.
The two Regional awards we won were: Best Project by a new Register Member and 1st Runner Up for a Best Driveway Transformation over 70m2. Both used a recent driveway installation in Willingham as the example project.
