Marathon Man

Downwell’s Matt Phillips (aka Marathon Man) is on a fundraising mission.

Our marathon man Matt Phillips who is the Managing Director at Downwell is well deserved of his super fit, super philanthropist title. He is only part way through his year of Marathons and has already raised over £6,000 for various good courses that are close to his heart.

The London Marathon Matt took part in earlier this year was his 4th for which the money he raised went to the good courses supported by the Snowden Trust. Midway through the race Matt met up with good friend martin Barnett of Hughes & Salvage.

With only a week to recover, Matt completed the Brighton Marathon. He is also going to be completing  2 more marathons this year. The Berlin Marathon in September and New York in November.

If you wish to sponsor Matt in any of these marathons, we will be publishing the details of how you can closer to the time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March

The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.

The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.

All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
