Essex Scouts

On behalf of Essex Scouts can I thank you for the efficient cleaning of our buildings following on from our two major camps this year.

Both you and your team did a great job and turned up on time and did everything we asked to a high standard.

I have no hesitation in recommending you to other Scout centres or individuals.

Pukkahouse Property

As managing agents of a small block of flats in the Rayleigh area, we have contracted out the property maintenance work to PJR Services and have been very pleased with their work which keeps the communal gardens and internal areas of the block looking smart. We have found PJR Services to be reliable and responsive to the cleaning and gardening works required.

1st Rayleigh Scout Group

This letter is composed in recommendation of Paul at PJR Services thanks to his cleaning work at 1st Rayleigh Scout Group.

PJR Services have been contracted to 1St Rayleigh since the summer of 2018 and performed all tasks and requests to an excellent standard, and undertaken keyholder training as part of his service to relieve the voluntary leaders and committee from inconvenience. Any requests or last-minute tasks have been also been attended to without hesitation, and his service has been, and remains both honest and reliable.

Walsingham House

PJR Services have been the groundsmen at Walsingham House for over 10 years, and in that time have undertaken significant planting and development in the grounds to make them much more presentable, Paul has a real heart for gardening and landscaping, and a good visual sense of what makes a garden work, as well as being open to direction and suggestions.


In 2012 Walsingham House Youth Retreat Centre on Canvey Island wanted us to erect a Yurt in their grounds. Having a lot of school groups use the Centre they wanted somewhere for relaxation and meditation. As a completely new concept at the time we all rose to the challenge to build this amazing structure.

What is a Yurt (Ger)

The Yurt (or the correct name Ger) has been a distinctive feature of life in Central Asia for at least three thousand years. Inhabited by Mongolian nomadic peoples of the Central Asian Plateau. The Yurt is held together using lattice-wall sections bent into shape in the traditional way, decorated crown supports hold up the crown wheel in the centre in the Yurt, roof poles and traditional door, all held together using horse hair & polypropylene ropes, covered with four layers, 1. Inner Liner 2. Felt 3. Canvas 4. Suncover.
