MASSIVE rugby fan and Rees Developments Managing Director Vince Rees is extending sponsorship of his favourite sport to include rugby league team the Chester Gladiators.
The club based in Clifton Drive, Chester is now in its fifth season and Rees Developments’ support will help the club to provide a new strip and training kit as well as keeping membership fees down so as many people as possible can try the sport.
Gladiators Chairman Jim Green said: “This sponsorship makes a huge difference to us. Rugby League isn’t a well known sport around Chester and this type of support helps us enhance our reputation.”
Vince who also sponsors Ellesmere Port Rugby Club said: “Sport is so important, not just for fitness but also because it helps people learn to work as a team. “It’s essential to support community teams to give as many people as as possible have a chance to enjoy sports and I hope the team has a really good season.”
Rees Developments has recently reviewed its insurance and taken out an ‘all contracts, all risks’ policy through Chester-based Daulby Read.

Managing Director Vincent Rees said: “We’re a Chester business and wherever possible want to use Chester suppliers for our needs – whether it’s insurance or insulation. I’m delighted that Daulby Read could offer us the exact type of insurance we need at a competitive rate.”
Broker Brian Gelling said: “Vince and I are committed to supporting local businesses in our town so this is an ideal situation.”

ROGUE roofers are ripping off homeowners in Chester – something Rees Developments want to stamp out.
Unknown roofers have been trawling residential areas cold-calling on homeowners, pointing out alleged problems with roof tiles and then charging an exorbitant amounts to repair them.
One couple who were charged an outrageous £750 simply to replace few ridge tiles – a job that took just three hours and the quality of the work isn’t guaranteed. There are even reports of these workmen driving people to cash point machines to draw out money to pay them.
Vincent Rees said: “This is disgraceful behaviour and needs stamping out straight away. A professional and reputable builder will never simply cold-call and point out alleged problems with your home that you didn’t know you had.
These scam artists prey particularly on the old and the vulnerable and it is simply wrong.
“No builder who values his reputation will ever cold-call and alarm you into having possibly unnecessary work done at an exorbitant price.”
AFTER just one year of trading, Rees Developments is delighted to announce its move to new offices in Sedan House, Stanley Place, Chester.
“It’s a great location overlooking the race course and a brilliant way to celebrate out first year of trading.
“We’re a growing business which we believe is due to our commitment to transparent pricing, using dedicated project managers and changing the perception of small builders to ensure anyone requiring work is dealing with a professional organisation.
“Supporting the local economy of Chester is also central to our ethos which is why, whenever possible, our materials come from Local Suppliers and our skilled and qualified trades people are all locally based.”
