Thank you to the A1 Wentbridge team for helping the local community and leaving a lasting legacy in West Yorkshire, following officially unveiling a new timber outbuilding, garden furniture and an enhanced garden area for Bless Community Support, in Upton on 11th August 2023.
In just three months our team and supply chain transformed the space as they resurfaced the area around the existing poly tunnel and installed new foundations for the outbuilding. They have also donated over £7,500 worth of equipment including tables, benches, toadstool table, stools, planting beds and a five-star bug house!
Bless Community Support provides several services to local people to enhance their physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being. From memory friendship groups to bereavement support, lifelong learning and environmental projects, Bless brings people together from all age groups, to enrich lives and benefit the community. Little Buds is just one of their environmental projects: a community allotment space which was kindly provided by Upton Parish Council to Bless, for children and their families to explore, grow fruit & veg and to learn about and support the environment and wildlife. The new greener area will provide vital support for people living with Alzheimers/Dementia and will help young children learn about the environment.
Delighted with the team’s efforts and efficiency for helping to make a real difference to the communities who live nearby, National Highways North Yorkshire North East have awarded the team with a certificate for delivering outstanding customer service.
National Highways have created a short video showing the project in action and the unveiling event.
Thank you to everyone involved in this important project.
