Brave employees of R&M have joined millions of men worldwide to support Movember 2013 by selflessly foregoing shaving for the whole month of November!
Movember challenges men (or women if they are able!) to grow a moustache during the 30 days of November.
Co-workers, families, friends and colleagues are able to get involved and support their “Mo Men” by donating on line to the charity “Movember” who raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.
So far the R&M clean shaven Movembers include Adam (leader of the pack) Brian (R&M Chairman), Richard (R&M Commercial Director), with other team members including – Kev Goodall, Jon Cooper, Marin Goodall, Bill Moffatt, Nick Robinson and Neil Sherin.
Set up in 2003 in Australia, Movember is a truly global movement, with participants in over 61 countries worldwide, raising over £92 million in 2012!
To support the R&M team please go to their Movember Team Page by clicking on the link - where you can also see their pre Movember state!
We will update you on their progress at the end of Movember – so watch this space!

R&M’s Neyland branch would like to congratulate the Goodwick Brass Band for coming first in the National Championship of Great British (Second Section) on the 21st of September.
Based in Goodwick – West Wales – the band, sponsored by R&M Electrical Group, took on 18 of the country’s finest Brass Bands to win this prestigious competition.
Originally founded in the early part of the 20th Century, the band disbanded temporarily in 1935 and was reinvented in 1986, and has gone from strength to strength since that date, with the most recent achievement being the pinnacle of the 2013 calendar.
The 29 piece band competed at Cheltenham Racecourse, producing an exceptional performance of Kenneth Downie’s Purcell Variations, and were further honoured for their achievement by Pembrokeshire County Council at a reception earlier this month.
Goodwicks Brass Band personally thanked R&M for their support for this event:
“On behalf of the band I would like thank both yourself and R&M electrical for the kind sponsorship that you provided. Such a weekend is not cheap as there are 30 members of the band (plus officials).
Once again many thanks.” Jonathan Crimmins on behalf of the Goodwick Brass Band.
R&M looks forward to the band achieving great things in 2014, when they will be competing in the National First Section – after being promoted earlier this year.

Tags: Aluminium Lighting Column
R&M Electrical Group (in association with Industrial Lighting Systems UK Ltd) are now able to offer a wide range of Aluminium Lighting Columns.
Offering reduced maintenance costs and increased safety, these intelligently designed columns are available from 3 to 18 meters in a variety of designs:
- Stepped Hockey
These innovative aluminium lighting columns have the benefits of:
- Low Weight – making installation simpler, quicker and more cost effective
- High Strength – weakness traditionally associated with the door opening on lighting columns is eradicated
- Zero Corrosion
- 50 Year Design Life – with track records in the field exceeding this, the aluminium out performs more traditional materials such as steel or concrete
- Low Maintenance
- Passively Safe – the aluminium column absorbs kinetic energy in the event of a collision – reducing potential harm
- Sustainable – ILS Lighting Columns are made from 100% recycled materials and are in their turn 100% recyclable, additionally offering a low carbon footprint when compared with alternative lighting solutions
“We take our commitments to the environment very seriously so the ability to offer our customers a product that satisfies this commitment and with the crucial benefits of lower maintenance costs and intrinsically increased safety, is fantastic.
The benefits of using an aluminium lighting column against more traditional ones are many – the reduction in weight alone means that costs associated with the installation – delivery vehicles, lifting equipment, man power etc, – have in our experience been greatly reduced, whilst, crucially the strength of the product is not affected at all. In fact the strength of the column has been increased (when compared to more traditional systems) by an innovative design around the door where traditionally there has been an inherent weakness”. Andrew Chandler (Sales Director).
