Proud Safe2Torch Registered Member

M&J Group (Construction & Roofing) Ltd

M&J Group pledges support to promote a safe system of work when using gas torches. Safe2Torch provides guidance for the safe installation of torch-on reinforced bitumen membranes and use of gas torches in the workplace.

The purpose of this guidance is to promote Safe2Torch specification writing at the initial survey and design stage and a safe system of work when using propane gas torches for the application of roofing membranes and the drying of roof surfaces.

M&J Group should be particular proud of this achievement, as they were so significantly involved in setting this up with NFRC.

As a Safe2Torch Registered Member we commit to:

  • Highlighting and reporting specifications which do not conform to Safe2Torch
  • Identifying and reducing the risk of roof fires caused by gas torches
  • Ensuring all employees are trained in the use of gas torches and their associated risks
  • Ensuring all supervisors or charge hands have completed the Safe2Torch checklist prior to hot works commencing

appeal-logoM&J Group are proud to sponsor ‘nearest to pin’ on the 16th for Stevington FC Charity Golf Day in support of the National Brain Appeal.

The National Brain Appeal raises funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square – one of the world’s leading centres for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions. These include stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia.

Dear M&J Group,

On behalf of everyone at Stevington FC we would like to thank you for your kind and generous support of our annual golf day. We had 35 players taking part and very few golfers if the truth be known, but then again it was the taking part and having fun whilst raising much needed funds that was the order of the day.

We are still receiving donations and collating proceeds from the day and are extremely pleased to report that we are approaching £1500 plus gift aid so far!!

To donate visit the JustGiving page here.

Dear Colleagues, event organisers and family,

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting the fund raising event we held on 1st July 2017.

My family, friends event organisers and myself are extremely pleased and proud to announce that to date we have managed to raise £3203 plus Gift Aid for qualifying donations, this being made up of £743 from the Golf Day at Pavenham Park Golf Club and the BBQ and music evening back at the Royal George and £2470 from donations.

We simply can’t believe the support and generosity everyone has shown…….. we will be proud to present the money raised to ‘The National Brain Appeal’ shortly.

Once again a sincere and heartfelt thank you.

‘Inspirational Talk’ to the Centrepoint Charity London

logo-centrepointIn May this year Peter Henrickson CEO of The M&J Group was pleased to be invited to give an ‘Inspirational Talk’ to 30 disadvantaged youths in London for the Centrepoint Charity.

Centrepoint provides temporary accommodation and advice for homeless youngsters, most of whom have left home for quite traumatic reasons, from violence, abuse, gangs, drugs and/or problems with mental illness.  It is often safer for them to become homeless than stay in the environment that should protect them.

Peter, has had a chequered upbringing and was able to relate to these young people on a level they understood.  The language was often industrial and to the point, with no punches pulled on how someone can still find opportunity in the darkest places.

We can quote Peter “…..I relayed some of my early childhood, school experiences and ultimately what drove me to where I am today with my various business interests….I have to say some of the experiences these young people have endured is far worse than anything I experienced…..I was fortunate enough to gain an insight into just how tough life can be for some young people and how it is too easy to judge without really knowing…”

M&J Group are proud to have assisted the Centrepoint Charity, as well as our ongoing and long-term commitments to Teenage Cancer Trust, Outward Bound and The Elisabeth Curtis Riding School for The Disabled.


Peter concluded his talk, with advice on how to fill in CVs and then offered two apprenticeships at M&J Group, to anyone in the room that may have been interested.  Within two weeks, one vacancy has been filled and ongoing discussions are taking place to fill the second one.
