Whirlow Hall Farm is an Educational Trust which inspires, nurtures and expands horizons for Sheffield’s youngsters.
The Trust was set up by Alan Aikin in 1979. Alan grew up in the inner city and was sent to a farm as an evacuee during the Second World War. He was so profoundly affected by his experience of farming and the countryside that years later he set up a centre where inner-city children could experience the wonders of the countryside and develop an understanding of the connection between their food, farming and the countryside. The Trust continues with this work today – each year welcoming more than 10000 children and young people to the Farm on a day and residential visits.
In response to an invitation to tender from the Trust for electrical services, AMS offered to carry out this work at no cost, in support of the Charity. We are happy to announce that the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust has subsequently accepted this offer and that consequently we shall carry out the periodic inspection, testing and reporting of both the fixed electrical installation(s) and emergency lighting over the next five years, commencing in October.
We look forward of being of service to Whirlow Hall Farm and supporting this extremely important and worthwhile cause.

Saturday 19 March saw our friend and colleague Julian Simpson (Maintenance Supervisor – Sheffield Theatres) fight an epic ultra white collar boxing match in aid of Cancer Research UK at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.
Despite loosing narrowly on points (which some might call a dubious decision) Julian impressively exceeded his target, actually raising £1,114 on the night for this extremely important charity.
Congratulations Julian from all at AMS Electrical, we are both proud and delighted to have been able to support you in this worthy cause.

We are delighted to confirm the timely and successful completion of Project Polaris for the University of Sheffield.
This Victorian property on Claremont Crescent in Sheffield has been comprehensively and sympathetically refurbished and extended to form a new image processing laboratory for Pulmonary, Lung and Respiratory Imaging Sheffield (POLARIS).

We would like to take the opportunity of thanking the Client, Main Contractor, Newell’s Projects Limited, Consulting Engineers, WYG, and Project Managers, Mascot Management for their valued business and help and assistance whilst work was in progress.
