Taylor Lane Team Gallops Through Furlong Fury Fundraiser

On one of the hottest days of the year, a team of Taylor Lane employees and their families took part in the Furlong Fury, a gruelling 5k obstacle course around Hereford racecourse.   Organised by Halo Leisure Trust, a registered charity and not for profit organisation, working in partnership with Urban Attack, the fundraising event saw the 10-strong team tackle a 24 furlong (5k) route and 20+ obstacles, including 5ft and 8ft walls; cargo nets; tsunami wave wall; tyre carries and mud & ice baths!

The team comprised Rebekah, Lisa, Sophie, Dawn, Joel (Dawn’s son), Paul, Jo (Paul’s wife), Nick, Ashleigh and Sarah.  Exhausted, dirty and exhilarated, the team were presented with medals by the Mayor of Hereford, Councillor Sue Boulter.

Halo Sport Foundation was the main beneficiary which provides support for talented local athletes.

“It was so much fun, we had a great time and made sure we did it as a team rather than a couple of us racing off which made it even more fun,” said Rebekah Bishop, Taylor Lane timber frame estimator and Furlong Fury team member.

“We were lucky at the Ninja Wall – the team in front of us were firefighters so a couple of the men held back and yanked us all up!”



Taylor Lane Services

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had worked with them [Taylor Lane] previously and were happy to continue that relationship knowing the quality of the frame and the service that we would receive."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had heard nothing but positive reviews about Taylor Lane and after meeting with Padraig [Taylor Lane’s self-build manager] and talking through our vision, we had no hesitation in our decision to build using a Taylor Lane frame.  Padraig was fantastic throughout, as was the supply and delivery of the frame.  Every dealing we had with them was a pleasure"

5/ 5 Stars

"The supply and delivery of materials was well-managed and the quality was excellent. The erection of the frame was carried out promptly and professionally, and completed on programme."
