THE boss of a builders’ merchants with two outlets in Hemel Hempstead has a very personal reason for taking part in a charity bike ride.

Nick House, MD of Grant and Stone, signed up to take part in the second Chilterns Cycle Challenge in memory of a good friend who was cared for by the Tring-based Iain Rennie nursing service during his illness seven years ago.

Not only will Nick, pictured, be riding the 75-mile challenge on March 25 but he’s also signed up the company to be headline sponsor of the event. Grant and Stone has a electrical wholesalers and a plumbers’ merchant and bathroom showroom on the Saracen Industrial estate, in Mark Road.

Nick said the service offered to his friend and family by the Iain Rennie nurses was second to none. He added: “Having seen how vital this support was, I want to do everything I can to make sure that this marvellous service is always there for local families.”
