Ringway assists National Star College with a range of tasks
A team of employees from Ringway have left their mark on the National Star College campus near Cheltenham.
The five men, who are working on the A419/A417 contract in Cirencester on behalf of Highways England, spent two days supporting National Star’s estates team.
They did a range of tasks including help to build two woodland tunnels and constructing obstacles that formed part of National Star’s Thriller Run.
They also cleared an overgrown plantation of Christmas trees and removed an 80ft fallen tree which was used as commercial firewood.
David Crompton, Head of Estates at National Star, said the work carried out by the Ringway team would make a huge impact.
“We have a large campus with a lot of ground and a small estates team of just four, so having another team of five for two days made an incredible difference to us,” said Mr Crompton.
“If we had had to buy 10 days of work it would have cost us more than £1,500 and we simply do not have the resources to do that.
“We are so grateful to the Ringway team and hope to welcome them back in the future.”
Nick Goddard, Ringway Regional Director said: “We are always keen to support the local community as part of our corporate responsibility policy. This is the first project that Ringway have undertaken at the college and it’s an association we hope to deliver over the years to come.
“Well done to all the guys, I believe all those who took part enjoyed the work and felt that they achieved something positive for a very good cause.”
