Supported by supply chain partners Constructicon, HE Simm and Tyrell, volunteers from VINCI Construction UK’s building team took time out to help tidy up the local park near to their Ellesmere Port Hub project site.
Whitby Park is the main green space in the town. A recent walkaround by some of the VINCI team, guided by Cheshire West and Chester’s parks team highlighted some of the overgrown areas that were becoming unusable, which unfortunately the park team did not have funding to maintain.
The VINCI-led team donated their time, skills and materials to complete a range of activities to enhance the public spaces in the park, including cutting back overgrown bushes that were preventing clear access along walkways within a mini woodland area, repairing damaged fence lines and replacing missing bridge timbers, pruning trees and removing invasive plant growth.
M&E contractor, HE Simm, also kindly donated £200 to support the park’s aim of planting a wildflower meadow.
The improvements will help local people to continue to enjoy family picnics, dog walking and participating in sporting activities at Whitby Park.
