The first Holmebuild branch, at Honley near Holmfirth was opened in June 2006 and with the acquisition of a team of highly motivated and experienced staff was quickly able to become established as an integral player in the building and DIY market around the Home Valley and beyond. This was quickly followed by the opening of the Saddleworth branch in July 2008 and again our knowledgable local staff have ensured that this has continued the Holmebuild success story.
We are proud to be closely associated with numerous local sporting organisations by way of sponsorship. We consider our business to be an integral part of the local community and as such are keen to be connected to some of the prominent sports teams in the area both at junior and senior level. Holmebuild are very active in the sponsorship of local cricket clubs including Holmfirth CC, Clayton West CC, Delph & Dobcross CC and Scholes CC.
Holmebuild took on the famous Three Peaks challenge to raise cash for charity. Five workers from Holme Build Britain’s three tallest peaks in aid of the COINS Foundation.
The construction charity develops buildings in poor nations around the world, including the in earthquake hit Haiti. The Holme Valley team including Andy Skelton, James Noble, Gordon Behrens, Joe Morris and Mark Frith were among 40 teams taking part in the challenge to scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdonia in 24 hours. They were helped by two drivers Neil Worthington and Andy Dick. The team raised £5,000 after completing the charity effort in 25 hours 11 minutes.
Andy said: “The weather was appalling on all three mountains, a lot of teams had to drop out but we carried on. We’re feeling a bit rough now but thankful we finished it.”
