New found Rugby team welcomes support from Morclean

MORCLEAN SUPPORT NEW WOMEN'S RUGBY TEAM

As always Morclean are happy to extend their support to local causes and organisations. In our most recent act of kindness we have agreed to sponsor a new and upcoming sports team- Matlock Women's Rugby Team.  

The new Matlock Women's Rugby Squad 


Formed by the Matlock Rugby Club in March, the team is going from strength to strength. Starting out with just a few players, their numbers have know grown to 22 which is fantastic. The team train on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings with the support of Gary Rudkin and Sean Wright, who are the Derbyshire RFU Community coaches. 

On Sunday afternoon they had a joint training session with Belper RFC ladies and then a friendly game to show off their new found rugby skills. Both teams played really well and had an enjoyable afternoon. The team were really well looked after by Belper Rugby Club and even had Pimms and Prosecco with their meal afterwards! More fixtures are planned and Matlock RFC intend to continue training throughout the Summer. 

If you know any budding player who might be interested in joining the squad please contact the club on 07874282059. No prior experience is necessary, all of the girls are new to the sport so there's no need to feel out of your depth.

Morclean have agreed to be shirt sponsors for the team and they are happy to welcome further support from local businesses. .  If anybody is interested in sponsoring the girls please contact Mark Packard (packardfamily@tesco.net). 

MATLOCK RUGBY TEAM PLAYERS DINNER



Update from David, Matlock Rugby Vice President: 

The Players Dinner was held recently at The Gate in Tansley. 

Prior to the festivities began the players and officials were addressed by Laura Loeber whose late husband Chris had been a long standing member of the club for 40+ years as an outstanding player, Club Captain, Chairman and successful 1st XV coach before then becoming involved with coaching in the Junior Section and latterly returning to the senior set-up as 2nd and 3rd XV coach and mentor. Laura explained how much the club had meant to Chris, adding that the feeling was clearly mutual and went on to thank the club for all their support over recent weeks before passing over to their daughter Sophie to say a few words about the new Chris Loeber Emerging Player of the Year Award, an award which would represent many of the traits which were important to Chris. The award would be open to anyone who had represented the senior section of the club and would be awarded to the player who had made a significant impact, improvement and contribution over the season, regardless of both their age and of whichever team they had represented. The first recipient of the award was the popular and well deserving Harry Boyd.



The dinner then began in full swing after which the remaining awards were announced. The full list of awards are below:

 The Chris Loeber Emerging Player of the Year:     Harry Boyd

1st XV -  Players Player                                                    Ash Statham
1st XV – Most Improved Player                                   Tom Cruttenden
1st XV -  Coach’s Player                                                   James Fairclough

1st XV  -Top Try Scorer                                                    Luke Howard
1st XV - 100% Playing Record                                        Ash Statham

2nd XV – Players Player                                                   Phil Braund
2nd XV – Most Improved Player                                  Matt Fenton
2nd XV – Coach’s Players                                                Conor Loughnane

2nd XV – Top Try Scorer                                                  Mike Gunter

3rd XV – Players Player                                                   Dan Byrne
3rd XV – Commitment Award                                      Tom Neville
3rd XV – Most Improved Player                                  Graham Pole

3rd XV – Top Try Scorer                                                  Brendan Jones

The club reflected on a successful season in which the main intention was to start to rebuild the squad for the future and finish near the top of league whilst bringing on more of the young home grown talent coming through from the club’s healthy junior section. The 1st XV finished 4th in the Midlands 2 East League ending the season with a good win against the league winners and having the best points difference in the league. The 2nd XV had a great season winning their Pennant League and the 3rd XV also had a strong season finishing near the top in their league.

Congratulations to all from the Vice Presidents.
Proud to support The Matlock Rugby Teams

Morclean support local lass taking on the adventure of a lifetime



In our continued efforts to help support local businesses and individuals, Morclean are proudly supporting local lass Susan Glover in her attempt to raise money for Childreach International. With a grand fundraising target of £3000, Susan will be attempting to raise the donations by taking on the highest freestanding mountain in the world- Mount Kilimanjaro!

In Summer 2017 she will embark on her crazy adventure to raise money for Childreach International, an inspiring children's charity who work to restore children's rights. Their vision is something close to Susan's heart and is something that is fundamental to her current studies.

As part of Susan's trip she will be visiting one of the 8 projects in Tanzania, which lead the way for deaf rights, school farming and in-school hygiene.




The School Farming project is about a child's right to food. Rather than giving food and feeding programmes to schools, Childreach empower the community to grow maize and vegetables themselves, training them with sustainable methods and equipment to do so. The project has improved school attendance, bringing the average across schools from 70% to 92%. The average percentage of underweight children in every school was 20% before they began this project. It is now an incredible 7%.





























Since 2011 to date they have ensured that 20,000 children are able to enjoy one hot meal a day whilst at school. Childreach International also work in Brazil - providing activities to get children off the streets. Brazil consists of 21 out of 50 of the most violent cities in the world.

Nepal - keeping children educated in school to ensure they are taught and not trafficked.
India - to fight for girl's rights to education and to reduce child labour.

Susan will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in July 2017. Stay posted to see her progress!



The best of luck from everyone here at Morclean!

Custom made pressure washer is shipped to Libya

 In one of our most recent projects we have custom built two pressure washers to a client's specification and  provided spare parts for a currently used machine. The pressure washers are skid mounted machines and come with a water tank and chemical tank. These tanks have been tailored to the sizes the customer required so they can install the models to their own vehicles.

The client, who are based in Libya, have previously purchased equipment from us and also required some spare parts which were added to their crate. The company provides engineering design, construction and maintenance of Oil & Gas service facilities such as pipelines, flow lines, pressure vessels, tanks, heat exchangers and water treatment and injection facilities.






 
 Morclean are able to tailor make industrial cleaning equipment and have years of experience in providing tailor-made solutions to a range of clients. If you need advice on any upcoming projects simply get in touch with our team who will be able to give you practical and friendly advice.

The Custom Plus has recently been bought by a new start-up business in the East Midlands. The Custom Plus will kick start their new bin washing business and also offer the option for them to use the pressure washer on the machine for other cleaning endeavors.

Vehicle wash pads go to large car transportation hub in the South West

Two vehicle wash pads are due to go to a large global transporting company based in the South West of England.  

The wash mat is a surface mounted system which means the operator can avoid excavation or the need to have any items installed below ground. This is ideal for leasehold or sensitive sites such as a multi storey car park where ground works are not practical.
The Morclean permanent wash pad is made from a mixture of rigid fibreglass panels and welded plastics. The wash mat is therefore is a sealed bund that will replace traditional concrete wash pads.



The wash pad avoids excavation and civil works, and there are virtually zero builders works, disturbance to the ground. Our team can generally install a wash pad within hours with minimal fuss or inconvenience.

USA BinWash machine undergoes further development

As with any product we develop here at Morclean, producing purpose-built and high quality equipment takes it's time and isn't done in a hurry. We put a tremendous amount of effort into research and development to make sure products we make are innovative.

The model that is taking our main focus at the moment is the purpose-built bin wash we are building for the US market,which dominates our existing range both in structure and size. With trash cans being bigger and heavier in the USA, a machine that offers higher spec is a necessity and we’ve been working diligently to create a machine suitable for the US market. The outcome of this is the production of the TR200 Trash Can Cleaning Machine.

A couple of weeks ago we posted about the initial frame that had been developed to give you an idea of how big the model was going to be. At over 15ft long, this is definitely our most ambitious bin wash model yet!

The latest development shows the frame building upwards with a more distinguished platform and additional spare tyre. It is definitely starting to take shape- watch this space!

Morclean lend equipment to help local renovation project


We have an abundance of equipment here at Morclean that can be used for various applications and we're always looking for ways to help the local community. Recently we have lent one of our bowser pressure washers to a local canal renovation project which aims to  restore the Staveley Town Lock and Hartington Harbour.



The Chesterfield Canal Trust has spent well over £120,000 on the project (£45,000 of which has come from donations) which is a huge amount of money. Unsurprisingly the Trust were really appreciative when we offered to lend them one of our water bowser pressure washer machines free of charge to help assist in the cleaning of the site.



The bowser is ideal for construction sites which don't have immediate access to an electricity source and it runs solely off of a battery. It has been used to effectively wash down equipment and clean down stone.

To read more about the project and to see pictures from renovation so far you can follow this link to the Chesterfield Canal Trust page: http://www.chesterfield-canal-trust.org.uk/gallery/photos/staveley-town-lock/
