NSG to Support Frazer-Nash on ONR Framework

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected by Frazer-Nash Consultancy to be part of its supply chain team on the Office for Nuclear Regulation’s (ONR) new Technical Services Framework.

Following a review of the previous framework and a competitive public procurement exercise, the new four-year framework will provide ONR with the means to procure technical services and research to support its capacity, in light of growing regulatory demands. The framework will also support ONR’s capabilities in certain niche skill areas which are not held within the organisation.

Frazer-Nash has been selected as a prime contractor on Lot 3 of the framework, which consists of two tiers providing specialist engineering and technical services across a broad range of technical areas, including chemistry, control and instrumentation, human factors and radioactive waste management.

NSG Christmas Raffle Raises Over £500 for Local Hospice

Earlier this week, we held a Christmas raffle at our Calleva Park offices in Aldermaston. Thanks to the generosity of our staff, over £500 was raised for local charity St Michael’s Hospice, based in North Hampshire.

To put your donation into context, £500 could pay for 20 hours of hospice nursing, which will massively help us to support more people in North Hampshire at end of life.

NSG Supports Junior Cricket Club

St Mary Bourne Cricket Club in Hampshire is raising funds for new practice nets to support the development of its growing junior and adult sections. The community club has seen an impressive influx of both boys and girls since it revived its junior section two years ago. We recently donated £500 to their cause and wish them all the best in reaching their £10,000 target.

St Mary Bourne CC Juniors

On receipt of our donation, the club commented:

St Mary Bourne CC Juniors were recently founded with an aim to provide local children with the chance to have fun, make new friends and play cricket. With 140+ kids, we have grown so much that the club now needs permanent nets, built by Easter 2023. The money that NSG has kindly donated to these nets has provided us with a massive boost to reach our target. Your contribution is very much appreciated by all at the club. Thank you very much.
