Penny Town Ponds Lend-A-Hand day

CEMEX Rail have forged a good relationship with their local Environmental Sustainability Coordinator and Wild Space Officer Gary Wain.

After helping him out last year, Gary once again contacted CEMEX Rail for assistance in clearing some of the land around the protected ponds local to our plant in Somercotes.

The guys were only too pleased to help out; on the first day several of our staff popped down to help clear over grown brambles and weeds back from the public footpaths and grassed areas. Two weeks after clearing all of the brambles and weeds CEMEX helped again in the planting of the new flowers, along with members from the local Derbyshire Entomological society with representation from Amber Valley Borough Council. The new plants have been covered with a wire mesh to protect them from rabbit damage.  The main purpose for the planting of these new flowers is to attract rare butterflies into the area.

CEMEX staff involved included Dale Christian, Noel Gibbs, John Lynam, David Davis and others.

CEMEX Rail Solutions would like to thank Gary for the opportunity to help out and put something back into our local community and have offered further help were ever we can.

Gary has given thanks and high praise for all the help from the CEMEX employees involved. This will help improve the area for all.
