Our community means a lot us, so we get involved with as many local projects as we can.
Cooking at Columbus
Through the money raised by our staff for Columbus School and College, the school was able to purchase some much needed cooking equipment for their home economics classes, giving students access to essential life skills and aiding their future independence. Some of the staff involved with the fundraising visited the school and attended a lesson with the students who happily demonstrated what they had learned by whipping up some omelettes for lunch.
Essex Showcase for the Arts
Over the last few years, our staff and partners have supported many local sixth forms by displaying exceptional works of art at our offices during the Chelmsford Arts Trail.
This year, local artist Max Dolding asked us to help him put on a showcase of the arts. And it was roaring success. The Chelmsford community was treated to all kinds of art – from dance, song and music to sculpture and painting. A great Ska band added to the buzz, and renowned Turner Prize winner Grenville Davey gave up his time to speak to all the students. Grenville and Cllr Ray Ride from Chelmsford City Council awarded all the students with a commendation certificate provided by Gepp & Sons.
Essex Young Farmers Show
Our rural services team supports this fantastic event every year. Thousands of people visit, bringing both rural and suburban communities together and giving people an insight into all things rural and agricultural. The Gepp & Sons marquee has become a favourite meeting place for our rural clients and business friends. Offering a warm welcome and with great hospitality guaranteed, it’s usually standing room only.
