Supporting Our Community

At MPS, our focus is not strictly business. We are a part of the local community, so we feel it is important to show our support to others. For many years we have taken great pleasure in aiding the East Devon community where we can. We have been fortunate enough to assist sports teams, schools, clubs, charities and more, to show support , and also help grow the community that we all know and love.


Exmouth RNLI

On our new fleet of vans, you will see a sticker on the back of some yellow welly boots and a QR code. This is to raise awareness for Exmouth RNLIs recently launched Yellow Welly Trail. The yellow welly trail is a wonderful way for residents and visitors of all ages to find out more about the volunteer coxswains that have put their own lives at risk, to rescue so many. The trail consists of 15 yellow wellies spread over a 2.4 mile walk (but with no hills) and all who complete it will be awarded with a certificate and memento at Exmouth RNLI shop at the Lifeboat Station. To find out more about this you can click here (and also scan the code on our new vans).

Since the RNLI began in 1824, they have helped save over 142,000 lives that could have otherwise been lost. They also help to educate the public on how to become safer water users. Exmouth RNLI is one of the country’s oldest lifeboat stations with RNLI volunteers from the town committed 24/7 to saving lives at sea for over 200 years. They also have a state of the art, purpose-built lifeboat station which provides major benefits and enhances their ability to react accordingly in time sensitive situations. The work they do is incredible and could potentially save the life of someone you know. As a charity they rely on the help from others to continue their amazing work.

We have been long time supporters of Exmouth RNLI and try to help whenever we can. In 2022 the lifeboat station was in urgent need of a replacement double glazed unit to their lifeboat station. We had the shaped unit replaced within 48 hours and waived the fees as a charitable donation which earned us a certificate of thanks. To read more about this please click here. Also, last year a member of our team ran the Great West Run in a bid to raise money for Exmouth RNLI. Joe managed to raise over £1,500 thanks to the help of our community. We feel very passionately about helping Exmouth RNLI and hope that you can help continue to support them to.


National Coastwatch Exmouth

NCI Exmouth is a charity with very close links to Exmouth RNLI. They are one of the 60 National Coastwatch Institution lookout stations around England & Wales. 7 days a week, 365 days a year they keep a watchful eye over the estuary and seafront. Ensuring they are communicating with HM Coastguard and the RNLI providing assistance.

Due to the lookout stations exposed location the tower has been weathered by the elements. We recently received a call from Graham Nye of the coastguard service asking for some assistance. Their windows were inoperable and also allowed water ingress. Our team acted swiftly and worked in accordance with other trades to complete the work. We also waived the fees as a charitable donation.

We feel very passionately about helping our local services where we can, to show some gratitude for the phenomenal efforts they put into enhancing our safety. If you would like to find out more about National Coastwatch Exmouth, then please click here.
