Local based highway maintenace company Eurovia Specialist Treatments, based at Quedgeley put their skills to use carrying out a variety of activities at Warmley Forest Park, a local area designated as a site of nature interest, created on the former site of Warmley Clay works and maintained by volunteer groups.
Armed with tools, materials and muscle power a team of ten Eurovia Specialist Treatments volunteers led by Kevin Amos (Operations Manager), cleared paths, strimmed paths and hedges, removed ivy from an old railway siding, removed disused fences to aid disabled access and replaced worn out steps.
Rob Gourlay, one of the volunteers said " It was great to be part of such a project, giving back something to our community with our friends and colleagues. Standing back and looking at what we achieved gave us great satisfaction, we would happily do this again"
Katherine Kearns, Community Landscape Project Officer from South Gloucestershire Council said
As you know, the work the team did benefitted local community groups such as Siston and Warmley Community Gardens and 19th Kingswood Scouts. Your team's work also helped make the park look great for a community event, Wildfest, that was held on 17th July and here are some comments from the organiser, Rowena Kenny:
Thanks so very much for doing such a fabulous job prepping WFP for Wildfest! Love the new steps. I am really delighted.
Eurovia Specialist Treatments' generosity has really helped to give the community a boost and I look forward to working with you again.
