The Henbury Millenium Green is open again thanks to VINCI Construction UK’s team who helped out the local community.
Henbury Millenium Green Trustees needed a workman to help them reopen the Green in accordance with Covid-19 regulations. The idyllic setting, that has been a sanctuary for local families since the turn of the millennium, needed to be professionally fenced off from the children's play area, which must remain closed under Public Health England guidance.
VINCI's Project Manager, Martin Horton, who is leading the construction team at King's School, immediately responded to say they would help. He sent a team equipped with fencing panels to survey the job and meet the Trustees.
The Trustees said: "Last Thursday we appealed for help to have the children's play area fenced according to Government Covid-19 Guidance so we could open the rest of the Green.
"To our delight on the very same day the Project Manager of VINCI Construction UK Ltd at the new King's School site contacted us to say they could not only provide the fencing but come and erect it for us.
"True to their word Guy Downes of VINCI Construction UK and his team arrived first thing on Friday morning and in no time the job was done.
"We are so grateful to VINCI for their support."
VINCI's Martin Horton said: "In these challenging times it's frankly wonderful to be given the opportunity to help such a worthwhile local cause. Our team really enjoyed their day and I hope the local people will enjoy this facility during a trouble free, happy summer."
King's Director of External relations, Caroline Johnson, said: "VINCI has been a great partner enabling King's to fulfil our 2020 Vision of a brand new, state-of-the-art school and it's typical of Martin and his team that they should step-up when asked by locals to help. The company has a great sense of social responsibility and I'm delighted that Henbury residents are now able to access the Millennium Green again."
