Manchetts Commercials lending a hand with legislation.......

Great feedback from a recent customer at Manchetts Commercials & MOT ;

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am to a gentleman called David who works in your Burwell office, HGV MOT Department.

On recently booking our vehicle in for it's first HGV MOT I discovered it had no Vehicle Plate or Type Approval something I now know it should of been given by the DVLA and VOSA at the point of manufacture. 

This time last week I knew nothing of these requirements and despite speaking to the Renault Dealer we purchased the vehicle from, the DVLA and VOSA I drew a complete blank, until I spoke to David
He very kindly, but unnecessarily rang VOSA for me, he established what we were missing and advised me what I needed to do to move the situation forward. This I did and hey presto!! this morning I have a Plate and Type Approval for our vehicle.

I have spoken to David this morning to re-book the MOT and have expressed my thanks for all his help, i guess i just want to acknowledge his kindness to you as his employer, i think certainly from my point of view it's really rather unusual these days to find people like David who obviously take a great deal of pleasure and pride in their work.

Manchetts pleased to sponsor St Nicholas Hospice Care marathon runner Briony Craven-Russell from Exning near Newmarket

Briony Craven-Russell contacted Manchetts in Burwell at the end of last year for sponsorship for her London marathon run to raise funds for St Nicholas Hospice care, where her father passed away after his battle with bowel cancer. Briony popped in to Manchetts Rescue & Recovery in Burwell to have a photo with some of the team and it was really lovely to meet her.

Briony sent us this press release she has written and sent to the local press;

 The marathon leggings logo campaign is riding the crest of a wave as MANCHETTS, in Burwell,  herald in the New Year with a bang sponsoring two more logos. 
It is great the logos are proving so popular with yet another prominent and well respected local company signing up. 
I am constantly overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of local people pledging their support for me in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, a cause very close to my heart given that my Father passed away there after a courageous 16-month battle with bowel cancer.
 I am hugely grateful to MANCHETTS, Robert Manchett and Sean Manchett  and the entire team for their generous donation as well as the Facebook platform to boot.  Not only have MANCHETTS made a generous donation but they have kindly offered to post news updates regarding the fundraising and training reports. So for everyone interested in following or donating it will be displayed on MANCHETTS Burwell facebook. 
It will be such an inspiration to look down at my legs during the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon and see the logos, knowing that MANCHETTS are behind St Nicholas Hospice Care alongside everyone who has made a donation.  To have the opportunity to carry all this support across the finish line is what makes it all worthwhile.

Thank you to everyone for your donations all of which goes towards supporting human beings suffering from the most dreadful life-shortening illnesses and supporting their families and friends through traumatic times.  There are only two spaces left for logos.  For any interested potential sponsors please contact me at or
