Plumbing Team

V&A Mellors Ltd

V & A Mellors Ltd has been our trusted plumbing, gas and heating contractor for almost five decades and as such, nobody knows the inner workings of the plumbing systems on The Benyon Estate better than them.

A family firm established in 1968 by Andy’s late father Vic, V & A Mellors Ltd is now run by Andy, who joined the business in 1979. When Vic retired, Andy’s wife Georgina joined the business, bringing her accountancy and communications skills to the firm and in 2020, their eldest son Harry also joined the team.

Andy has an established team of qualified and experienced plumbing subcontractors, including Gas Safe Registered boiler specialists, who join him in supporting The Benyon Estate’s tenants.

The company rents a workshop on the Estate, so that they can be on hand to address any emergencies as soon as possible. Work begins each day at 7.30am and varies from planned and scheduled refurbishments, to small fixes or call-outs for emergencies. The vast majority of jobs are turned around within 24 hours.

Andy is a familiar face around the streets that encompass The Benyon Estate, having built a trusted relationship with several generations of tenants and local businesses over the forty-plus years he has been working here. “I used to come here as a boy to help out my father for extra pocket money”, explains Andy. “It’s a great place to work and you can see that Edward Benyon cares. Working here for such a long time certainly has its professional benefits”.
