Lynch lends a hand
22 September 2021
A compact dumper hired out free of charge by L Lynch Plant Hire & Haulage is helping a wildlife restoration project in Buckinghamshire as part of works associated with HS2.
Contractors have been working with the Iver Environment Centre, in the Colne Valley Regional Park, to complete a project to improve the facility for the local community. Lynch, working with Skanska Costain Strabag joint venture (SCS JV), have donated the hire of a Thwaites 1-tonne dumper to help with the work.
The Centre is restoring its large wildlife pond, part of which is to be filled in to create a wildflower meadow island. The centre needed to move 100 tonnes of sub-soil from the car park next to the main site, and a compact machine was needed because the access to the site was narrow.
James Barden, HS2 Project Manager South, from Lynch said: “We are pleased to be able to give something back to the local area and help where we can. Community engagement projects like these are so important to us as we are passionate about seeing real benefits to local people.”
The Iver Environment Centre is a 30-year partnership between National Grid and the Groundwork South Trust, an environmentally-led community development charity working across the south of England.
People with physical and learning disabilities can take part in supported volunteering to aid their well-being and the centre provides environmental education for local schools.
