Firms put some­thing back into com­mu­nity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - ET business Daily -

A NUM­BER of com­pa­nies have worked to­gether to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity and en­sure res­i­dents at Ea­glesthorpe, Ac­cent Nene’s shel­tered hous­ing scheme in Dogsthorpe, Peter­bor­ough, make the most of the sum­mer ahead.

The end re­sult is that the res­i­dents now have French doors which open on to a land­scaped pa­tio area, com­plete with shrubs, hang­ing bas­kets and gar­den fur­ni­ture.

The ma­jor­ity of the costs were con­sumed by Fos­ter Prop­erty Main­te­nance, which com­mis­sioned As­traseal to pro­vide the doors, Hereward Roof­ing to raise the roof level and Neil Par­menter to carry out the ground­work. Mean­while, Sov­er­eign land­scaped the area at no charge, Gard­man Gar­den Prod­ucts do­nated the gar­den fur­ni­ture and the Po­lice Fed­er­a­tion Fund paid for two benches.

Kim Wells, scheme man­ager at Ea­glesthorpe, said: “On be­half of all of the res­i­dents here I would like to give our warm­est thanks to Fos­ter Prop­erty Main­te­nance, and our other contractors, for all their hard work which has re­sulted in a lovely area that we will all be able to en­joy for years to come.”

Tim Drake, con­tracts man­ager at Fos­ter Prop­erty Main­te­nance, said: “We are de­lighted this ini­tia­tive has been so suc­cess­ful.

“We recog­nise a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of our busi­ness is built on works re­lat­ing to res­i­dents and their homes. We also recog­nise it is good prac­tice to rein­vest some of our profit into the com­mu­nity.”
