Glevum’s New Year Resolutions for your home

The dawning of a new calendar year marks a great opportunity to start afresh. For some of us, this might mean dropping a few bad habits or adopting a healthier diet. One common place to concentrate our positive energy at the beginning of a new year is in our homes.

Here, we take a look at a handful of things you can do to transform your home at the beginning of a new year.

Replacing windows and doors

A new set of windows and doors can really transform a property. In addition to having a positive impact on the aesthetics and kerb appeal of your home, you can expect your new windows and doors to save you a good deal of money on your heating bills thanks to improved energy efficiency.

Re-design the garden

With spring around the corner, the beginning of the year is an excellent time to get to work on a brand new garden. Overhauling your outdoor space could simply be a matter of digging some new beds and getting some gorgeous flowers planted. More ambitious plans might include water features or the building of a stunning new conservatory and inside-outside living space.

Re-decorate

One of the most powerful ways to improve the interior of your property is with a lick of paint. Decorating the inside of your home isn’t only about freshening up your living environment, it can actually transform your home entirely.

Fit a new kitchen

Most of us spend a great deal of time in our kitchens throughout the day. For this reason, it is often the room that springs to mind when we think about spending some money on our home. Plans for a new kitchen might even include knocking through to an adjacent room with the hope of creating a new open living area. Spaces like this are becoming incredibly popular, largely due to how great they are for entertaining.

De-clutter

Not all measures to transform your home have to be about spending money. Rather than asking what you could add to your home, ask what you might be able to take away. Simply removing the clutter in your house can create a great deal of space. You can begin by throwing away things which you don’t use. Those things which you deem to be clutter but which you cannot part with can be hidden away using innovative storage solutions, reclaiming large areas of space.

 

Increase efficiency

Modern homes make energy efficiency a number one priority. In addition to helping reduce our carbon footprint, this can have a hugely positive effect on the size of our utility bills at the end of each month. As we’ve already mentioned, new windows and doors can help maximise efficiency. Other options include improving insulation and even installing state-of-the-art solar panels to make use of renewable energy for powering your home.

Big response to Charity Shop theft will raise even more money for Hospice

A big hearted response by Glevum and Gloucester Rugby Club, following an article in the Gloucester Citizen about the theft of a signed rugby shirt raffle prize, is set to raise even more funds for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

Hospice_Shirt_Nov15_1300_rdax_650x370_95

The local hospice was facing having to hand back the money it had raised from a charity raffle organised by Barclays Bank staff following the theft of a Gloucester Rugby shirt signed by the first team squad from a mannequin on display in the window of its shop in Oxebode Street in Gloucester.

But, following stories printed in The Citizen and appeals made on social media, both Glevum and Gloucester Rugby Club got in touch with the hospice to say they would replace the stolen shirt.

One shirt will replace the stolen charity raffle prize, while the other is destined to be auctioned off at the Hospice’s Winter Ball, taking place at Pittville Pump Rooms on Friday 11th December, raising even more money for the hospice which provides specialist end of life and palliative care for local people.

But the kind hearted gesture hasn’t ended there, as when the CEO of Gloucester Rugby, Stephen Vaughan, heard about the Charity’s Winter Ball, he also donated two tickets to a game of the winner’s choice this season to join him in the 1873 Club for a meal and to watch the game from the best seats in the house.

Elise Hoadley, Director of Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice said,

“We have been completely overwhelmed by the amazing response received from the people of Gloucester following the theft.

“We’ve had so many messages of support from people on social media and thanks to the amazing people at Gloucester Rugby and Glevum we have not one but two shirts and an incredible auction prize for our Winter Ball.

“We could have lost the money for a day’s care by two nurses following the theft, but now we’re in a position where we could raise an awful lot more which means we can be there for local people at a time they need help most.

“It is true what they say. Every cloud does have a silver lining – or in our case, a Cherry and White one.”

Gary Jones, Managing Director of Glevum Windows, said,

“We were horrified when we heard of the theft of the shirt and couldn’t believe that anyone would stoop as low as to steal from a charity in this way.

“Knowing that we had a signed Gloucester shirt we contacted Sue Ryder as soon as possible to make our offer. Combined with Gloucester Rugby’s generosity it is just fantastic that such a good cause is now actually better off than it would have been before the theft.”

Stephen Vaughan, CEO of Gloucester Rugby Club added,

“We couldn’t believe it when we read that someone would steal from a charity, particularly as they were using the shirt to raise funds for such a good cause.

“In the circumstances, we felt that the least we could do was offer to replace the stolen shirt and also provide some match tickets.”

The Sue Ryder inaugural Winter Ball, sponsored by Pulhams Coaches, takes place on Friday 11th December, with tickets costing £90 to include sparkling drinks reception, three course meal with drinks, entertainment and exclusive charity auction. Table packages are available.

Glevum bid a fond farewell to long serving employee Terry Watts

Gary Jones, Managing Director of Glevum paid tribute to Terry and his contribution to the business at a presentation attended by a large number of colleagues. “Terry has been a fantastic member of the Glevum team, noted for his knowledge, professionalism and above all his sense of humour. Terry will be greatly missed, but his retirement has been hard earned and is well deserved. We wish him all the best for a long and happy retirement”.

January Sale Now On

The Glevum January Sale begins today (5th January 2015).

January has traditionally been one of the most popular months for people considering home improvements and the Glevum January Sale is aimed at making these as affordable as possible. The January Sale features:
– Buy One Get One Free on all new doors and windows ordered in January.
– 25% off Conservatories plus a FREE set of conservatory furniture worth up to £500 in January.

Gary Jones, Managing Director of Glevum commented:
“The Christmas Holiday period is probably the time of year when we spend the most amount of time in our homes. The fact that this coincides with a period when the weather can be at its worst, often prompts people to realise that their windows and doors need replacing or that they could do with the extra space that a conservatory can provide. This is why we run the January Sale to make it more affordable for people to make these improvements. With energy costs continuing to climb, replacing old or inefficient windows with new ones can deliver a very welcome reduction in energy bills, so it can make sound financial sense – not to mention the improved security or look and feel”.

Glevum in £1 million expansion bid that could create 30 new jobs

AWARD-WINNING Gloucestershire firm Glevum is planning a £1 million expansion with the creation of 30 new jobs.

The windows, doors and conservatories installers, based at Broadoak, near Newnham-on-Severn, is hoping Forest of Dean district planners will give it the go-ahead on Tuesday (August 12) to build two new buildings for additional staff training, administration and storage, as well as improved parking areas.

Chairman of the family firm Gary Jones, who hails from Drybrook, said the plan would bring much-needed employment to the area, along with more customers – who would boost local trade.

“This is a great opportunity for the Forest of Dean,” he said. “We are the victims of our own success and we simply need to expand our existing business at Broadoak to give more floor space and parking in order to employ extra staff and create employment opportunities going forward.”

The 52-year-old father-of-three, who lives in Minsterworth, said his company would be helping to redress the daily exodus of 14,000 outworkers from the Forest of Dean by providing expanding his current 70-strong workforce.

Gary, who has the full support of neighbouring businesses and residents, set up his firm 30 years ago at the former Morelands Match factory site in Gloucester.

In 2000, he opened the Broadoak headquarters which has gone on to become the largest independent installer of conservatories in the South West. He supplies the top 10 housebuilders in the country, and boasts 44,000 domestic customers in Gloucestershire alone.

Gary has also launched a green energy arm to his business, installing solar PV, air and ground source heat pumps and rainwater harvesting systems. Two years ago, Glevum became the first window and door company to become Green Deal accredited by FENSA, the well-respected industry body. The firm has a string of awards to its name including the UK Conservatory Company of the Year Award.

Glevum’s other claim to fame was the  launch of glamour girl Melinda Messenger’s TV career with the iconic ‘Class behind Glass’ ad campaign which made it to Page 3 of The Times newspaper.
