Firms put something back into community
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.”
