Giving back to the community


Residents of Bromham and Biddenham villages in Bedfordshire were victims of a number of burglaries at the beginning of 2014. This caused more work for Bedfordshire Police as well as the local Bobby Scheme, run by the Bedfordshire Police Partnership Trust.


Community Dunster House

Chris Murphy, the founder of Dunster House, became aware of the local burglaries via a Neighbourhood Watch leaflet drop. Wanting to help the community, and knowing that the company had a number of door and window safety latches in the warehouse which could be put to good use by the Bobby Scheme in protecting vulnerable residents of the county, Mr Murphy donated a batch to the Neighbourhood Watch covering the area. Today we received the letter, pictured right, from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire, Olly Martins, thanking Mr Murphy and Dunster House for the donation to the scheme.


The Bobby Scheme is a locally run charity, powered by donations whether monetary, goods or time and partnership with local agencies and businesses. The scheme is aimed at members of the public who are aged 65-years-old and over, as well as the disabled and vulnerable residents of the area. Members of the scheme will come round to assess your home for any areas which could leave you vulnerable to crime. Work will then be carried out by the schemes ‘Bobbies’, who are qualified carpenters, to make your home a safer place to live. The work and surveying of your house is free, to help reduce crime against the vulnerable residents of the county.

Hello, I’m Alex, I love rabbits… and cars, erm, enjoy designing, GSOH, hang on this isn’t a personals ad, also GSOH is debatable, I have a sense of humour, but is it good? My son means the world to me as do my family whom I am lucky to work with, Mummy, Daddy and Baby Brother, except Baby Brother’s in his 30’s and an inch taller than I and as I too am hardly a child ‘Mummy’ and ‘Daddy’ are terms of endearment to them. I haven’t gone ‘ga ga’ in quite some time, though again some may debate this. When I say I love rabbits I don’t mean in a creepy way but as children, at time of writing I have 7, I actually have 2 sat next to me in my office as we’ll be going to the vet for a check up later. All of my rabbits have a sob story of one kind or another and I love mangling my home to make it more rabbit friendly, they all have large indoor and outdoor spaces to run and jump in and I keep extending their accommodation which my wife would prefer I stop. I love designing, I never fail to have a project on the go (or frequently 3 or 4 meaning boxes and tools all over the house), my rabbit accommodation is intricate, I’ve pulled down and built walls in my house and this is why I love my job where I get to design for other people. I constantly review the market and ensure that we always sell the best product for the price. My extremely clever brother and father do so as well, meaning you always get the best available, designed in the UK FOR the UK! Find Alex Murphy on: Google+
