UPDATE: 30 June 2020
From 5 June 2020, Mears Group Plc became our new repairs contractor in our Eastern region.
Mears are a national contractor with a great reputation. You can find out more about them here.
Unfortunately, because of the changeover, and the government's lockdown to stop the spread of the coronavirus, a number of repairs are being delayed. We are transferring a large backlog of repairs to Mears and we also have the repairs which we couldn't respond to during the lockdown. We need to prioritise all these repairs to make sure we get to the most important ones first.
We are working closely with mears to safely restart our repairs service and priortise the most important so please bear with us. Your safety and security always come first.
In the meantime, if your repair becomes more urgent, please get in touch.
Thank you for your patience.
TSG Building Services will continue to be responsible for gas servicing and maintenance in the region. When your annual safety check is due, please let them in to carry it out. TSG will take all the necessary precautions to minimise infection by wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), and follow social distancing principles and high hygiene measures.
Customer Experience Director Damian Roche said: "We are delighted to be working with Mears in the region. We use them in our North West region and the contract works very well. Although they are a national contractor, they have local people who can respond quickly and reliably. They are well known for doing a great job, and for being a well-run and stable company. Mears also have strong values and ethics, which are very important to us. We want all our contractors to share our values and for them to be committed to do a great job. They are delivering our service after all, and we want to make sure it is the best."

As ever, please check anyone visiting your home, for repairs or anything else, has the proper identification. Our contractors, and any other legitimate visitors, will be only too happy to show you proof of who they are. If you ever doubt anyone, contact us. We know bogus callers are operating at the moment so please take care.
