Taking pride of place on its commanding site in Woburn Sands near Milton Keynes, the imposing 18th Century house Sandy Mount has undergone an extensive renovation, with Brewers helping return the period property back to its original splendour.
The Milton Keynes branch of Brewers were approached in June 2014 to give advice and guidance on the external redecoration of the property which has been converted into 2 bedroom apartments.
Suffering from cracking, the cementitous render and brick construction substrates needed a product to be flexible, weatherproof, water based and breathable. All wrapped up in an aesthetically pleasing and subtle finish suitable for such a grand building.
With architectural features such as quoins, string courses, plinths, portico the painted area of the house stretched to over 800 square meters. Rust-Oleum Mathys Murfill Waterproofing system was chosen for the job due to its quality, flexibility, ease of application and added reassurance of the Rust-Oleum Warranty Guarantee Certificate.
Painting of this historic home was completed in October 2014 to an exceptionally high standard which lead to being entered into the 2015 Painting and Decorating Premier Trophy Awards. Watch this space for the results!
For more information on the extensive range of Rust-Oleum products to suit any job pop into your local Brewers branch.

Brewers in Burton Upon Trent were recently approached by Bosworth Academy near Leicester for some paint advice fit for a king.
Leading up to the ceremonial re-internment of Richard III, Bosworth Academy were tasked with leading the construction of a 5 metre high art installation to signify the historical event. Named the “Cascade and swath", this focus piece would be constructed of 5929 White York Roses made by the Academy students and various community groups.
Primarily using bases cut from the bottom of 2 litre plastic drinks bottles, an adhesive paint was needed to not only stick to the plastic but also give a regal finish. The team at Brewers were pleased to offer professional advice and recommended Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 for the job. This adhesive primer would not only hold fast to the plastic but also provide a white canvas for any further decoration of the roses.
Each rose represents one of the 5929 citizens of Leicestershire who go missing ever year, the vast majority are young people under 18 years of age. With the passion to seek, to find and to make safe the anointed King Richard, the installation will act as a pledge to seek, to find and to make safe those young people go missing each year in Leicestershire.

Based at the Springfield University Hospital in London, the Shaftesbury Clinic provides invaluable support, guidance and rehabilitation to 18-65 year olds with mental health difficulties and have had contact with the criminal justice system.
Below: Before the transformation
Offering a range of rehabilitation programmes designed to provide opportunities in developing work roles, the clinic helps improve self-confidence, wellbeing and reduce the likelihood of reoffending. One of their most recent projects saw the clinic re-launch their rather uninspiring coffee bar into the colourful Cafe Connect!
Below: The team at the Shaftesbury Clinic working away!
Cafe Connect is just one of the mock up work environments that the clinic provides to enable practicing employment skills. Brewers in Putney were pleased to support this local project by donating the paint that helped transform the coffee bar area into a warm-welcoming and relaxing cafe.
Below: The finished result!

There are new products in the Brewers cleaning range with tubs of All Purpose and Heavy Duty Beaded Wipes. Both are super absorbent and anti-tear with aloe vera and anti-bacterial properties to be kind to the hand.

The walls of the tub have reinforced ribbing for extra strength and the litre measurements on the inside are ideal when adding liquids, plus with 6 different sizes, everything is covered from mixing a small amount of filler to removing rubble.

All these new products are available to order from your local Brewers branch!

Last year, Brewers sponsored India Mae, an exceptional World Champion junior kickboxer based in Oxfordshire.
In 2013 aged just 11, India Mae took her first kickboxing lesson. Since that day she has grown from strength to strength, winning an impressive haul of awards.
India Mae’s training regime is strict, she trains five times a week at Oxford Freestyle Martial Arts under Steve Simmons and also in Birmingham at ASBBA & CMA with ICO England Points Coach Jason Charlesworth.
In May 2014, India Mae was selected for the ICO England kickboxing team to compete at the World Championships in Tuscany and the following November she returned as the Junior 10-12yrs -42kg Unified World Champion!
Here she is with her well earned (and enormous) trophy at the local Brewers branch with her father Marc Thompson and Brewers area manager Laurence Zing.
Laurence commented, “We’re proud to be supporting this outstanding young lady whose sporting career is already off to such an impressive start! We’re wishing her all the luck for another successful year!”.
India Mae’s 2015 is already off to a strong start as she became the WUMA English Open Champion (-155cm category) in January, took silver in the Kwon Grand Slam First series and bronze in the WMO British Championships in recent weeks.
With plenty of competitions and training still to come, India Mae’s focus is now on the International Combat Organisation (ICO) world championships next month in Germany!

Cleaning up is an essential part of any job, from greasy hands to painted tools. That’s why Brewers have just released a new collection of quality cleaning cloths and wipes designed just for decorators and tradesmen.
