May the 4th be with you! We have some very exciting news and structural changes made at Sale Service & Maintenance Ltd which we would like to announce. On 4th May 2021 our new Southern regional office open’s which will allow us to focus for the increased demand for works in the Southern, South West and Thames Valley regions. The Southern Office which is based in Lakeside, Portsmouth, will still remain under the Sale Service & Maintenance Ltd umbrella. With the new office addition, we are also very pleased and proud to announce the following promotions and Business structure changes.
The London Region Head Office – 25 Upper Mulgrave Road, Cheam, Surrey, SM2 7AY Regional Director – Tommy Hutchings Associate Director – Kelvin Lyons Tommy Hutchings started his journey with the Business over 8 years ago as a young Project Manager completing his final years at College. Since then, he has progressed within the Company from, Project Manager to Senior Project Manager, Contracts Manager to Senior Contracts Manager, Operations Director now to Regional Director. This progression during a very short time is an amazing achievement by Tommy and is proof to what can be achieved through commitment, determination, and drive. He thoroughly deserves this exciting new opportunity and will hopefully allow him to help progress this Company to new levels. Kelvin Lyons has been with the Company since he was 16 Years old and has been an absolute “rock” to this Business. Kelvin has progressed through the ranks during some very difficult times and we are all so proud of this latest achievement. His new position is yet another great opportunity for this very likeable lad which is again gratitude for his loyalty and devotion for so many years to this Company.
The Southern Region Office – Ground Floor, Building 1000, Western Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO6 3EZ Regional Director – Sean Dailey Associate Director – John Wheatley Sean Dailey started at the business over 4 years ago after 20 plus year lasting experience at Mitie. His vast wealth of experience was crucial to help strengthen the structure of the Business whilst it was going through its rapid growth. Sean has played a major part in helping the business progress to where it is today, and therefore fully deserves this great opportunity to develop and grow this Regional office. John Wheatley joined the business from Mitie nearly 4 years ago. John immediately made an impact to the business by fitting in well and gaining the respect with all his work colleagues. John has a great attitude and loyalty and deserves this promotion which is again testament for his commitment and will be a great opportunity for him to progress this Regional office. Like most Companies we have gone through some difficult times throughout this pandemic however these changes will not only freshen up the business but will make us more efficient.

SALE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF DAY 2019
For the 3rd time in a row we were back at St Georges Hill Golf Club, Weybridge for another SGL Championship 2019, where 96 Golfers and 25 Teams competed to win this prestigious prize which was previously awarded to 8 Build in 2017 & The Anslow Partnership in 2018.
This year, together with the perfect golfing weather and the course being in spectacular condition, the competition really heated up with 3 Teams completing with impressive scores of 90 points and over. The final outcome was that third place was awarded to 21 Construction on 90 Points, and with the same points Overbury Core (Team 1) managed Second place on count back. Meaning the outright winners being Overbury Core (Team 2) consisting of Martin Forrester, Bobby English, Scott Howard and Lloyd Lee with 91 Points.
Other trophies awarded on the day comprised of Scott Howard from Overbury Core being the overall Individual Winner after achieving 42 Points, with the longest drive of the day Ross Purcell of Henly Projects and the nearest the Pin awared to Ashley Starkey of Smith Bros. The Texas Scramble Team Competition was won by Vince Lancy, Jeremy Lathom-Sharp, Andrew Sale and Adger Brown. Last but surely not least with a credable 17 point’s, comes the winner of the WC award for golfing ‘at another level’, the great sport, Paul Norris.
Whilst the day was full of excitement and entertainment there was also the serious business of raising funds for The Childrens Trust, Tadworth, which I am delighted to announce that we were able to raise £13,000.00 on the night for this wonderful Charity. This amazing amount achieved is more than the two previous years raised on the Golf Day put together, meaning that in the three years we have been running this completion we have managed to raise nearly £25,000.00 to the Trust, which is fantastic.
This enjoyable event could not have taken place without the participation of the players and the support from our sponsors, as well as those who made such generous donations. I’d like to extend my thanks to all of them, and of course the dedicated staff at St Georges Hill Golf Club, Weybridge.
So well done to all the winners and competitors who took part in this competition which is beginning to achieve the accolade of being the Golf Day “to go to” in the Industry, and look forward to next year’s SGL Championship day on 16th September 2020.

Last but surely not least, with a record 1 point, comes the winner of the WC award for golfing ‘at another level’, the great sport, Ailbe Commane.
After a long day of good-natured skirmishing on the greens, we were more than happy to retire to the clubhouse to relax and socialise with the generous sponsors and supporters of our charity golf day. I am delighted to announce that the total we raised for The Children’s Trust in Tadworth amounted to an amazing £7,650! This is nearly double the very decent sum we raised last year and is fantastic news for the charity, who will be able to continue changing young lives for the better.

I’d like to extend my thanks to all of them, and of course the dedicated staff at St Georges Hill Golf Club, Weybridge.
