A Message from our MD

July and August have been busy months for many reasons not least because we have demanding contracts to complete whilst schools are closed for the summer holidays. These contracts are slotted in amongst our ongoing contracts which continue throughout the summer months. I must thank you all for your hard work and commitment particularly as this has been the hottest summer for many years.

There have been many social events to highlight which started with our sponsorship of the St Joseph’s Hospital Golf Day at Greenmeadows Golf Club, followed by our attendance at a Cardiff City Partners event at Hensol Castle, and the Mighty Hike, all in July, then our Golf Day at Langland Bay Golf Club in August and, finally, our sponsorship and participation in cricket matches with local businesses and cricket clubs throughout the summer. All events were a great success and I thank those of you who participated for doing so with energy and enthusiasm.

From a business perspective, we have continued to be successful in securing a significant number of further orders. A particular highlight for prospective work from the NHS was that we were successful in our bid to join the Carbon and Energy Fund framework which will run for the next 6 years. Membership of this framework will provide opportunities for us to assist with the decarbonization agenda for Health Trusts throughout England. Congratulations go to Ken Gale for managing our bid for membership of this framework. I am pleased to announce that the process has started with the preparation of a scheme for the South Warwickshire University Health Trust.  Good luck to all involved with this bid.

F P Hurley Attend Cardiff City Community Partner Event

F P Hurley has been a Cardiff City Community Partner for several months now and we were delighted to attend the recent Partner Event at Hensol Castle. The Partner Event provided an opportunity for the regional businesses and SMEs, who are all part of the Community Partnership Programme, to meet up and learn more about how the programme can help them grow and promote their brands. The day included a visit to the training ground, a guided tour around Hensol Castle’s gin distillery, and an exciting Q&A session with Cardiff City’s Manager, Steve Morison.

Hurley Golf Day 2022

We’re pleased to report another successful Hurley golf day, this time in the beautiful setting of Langland Bay Golf Club, Swansea, organised as a thank you to customers and industry partners.

The event, which was held on the 4th August, could not have been a better day and the weather was perfect weather for the 16 golfers. Langland Bay offered a unique setting for the day, with the spectacular scenery of the Gower Peninsula providing the perfect backdrop for a memorable day.


We want to say a thank you to all the companies that joined us, including Willmott Dixon, John Perkins, SD Solutions, Pick Everard and Arthur J Gallagher. A trophy was awarded to the overall winner on the day- congratulations Tom Millard of Willmott Dixon. The day was concluded with an evening dinner and the feedback we had from everyone that played was fantastic.


We also want to say a huge thumbs up to everyone at Langland Bay Golf Club for their help in making the day such a fantastic experience.

The team paired up with Year 8 pupils from Ysgol Sant Baruc to clean up Whitmore Bay Beach in Barry. It was definitely time well spent and the team collected eight bags of rubbish from the beach.

F P Hurley Support Nantymoel RFC to Transform their Cabin

We were delighted to assist Nantymoel RFC recently with the complete refurbishment of their porta-cabin. The cabin was kindly donated to the mini and junior teams but was in need of total refurbishment so it could be a usable facility. We recognise the importance of embracing our local communities and we were proud to lead the transformation of the cabin into something that will make a real difference to the team. The cabin now provides a pleasant and functional space where the team can hang out and from where volunteers can serve refreshments on match days.

The works included cladding the exterior with aluminium sheets, plasterboard was fitted to the interior walls, removal of an interior wall to open up the space, installation of kitchen worktops complete with a breakfast bar, vinyl flooring, plastic skirting, supply of light fittings, installation of a new door and locks, and painting and decorating to both the interior and exterior.

Thank you to the operatives who contributed to the refurbishment: Andrew Teall, James Teall, Elliott Teall, Sean Grabham, Lee Harben-Jones, Alan Smith and Harley Williams. Also, we wish to say a huge thank you to our supply chain companies that assisted with the refurbishment through the provision of materials. These include HTIC for the aluminium sheets, Jewsons for the kitchen worktops, Nova Flooring for the vinyl flooring, Kendall Developments for the supply of paint, and C&L for door locks.
