Engagement with our local community is important to everyone at Denholm Rees O’Donnell. We recognise that we have a part to play in maintaining and enhancing the lives of people living around our two sites.
From employing people living locally, both as skilled workers/managers and trainee apprentices to using our capabilities to help community projects, Denholms’ will always look to offer support.
Last year we were approached by the Friends of Warbreck Moor Park, a popular local open space used by many people for play, exercise and relaxation. The ‘Friends’ had started a project to refresh and upgrade the park facilities.
A wide-ranging initial discussion settled on the need for some new gates for the park. This requirement seemed a natural fit with Denholms’ extensive engineering capabilities and we were more than happy to offer to manufacture and install a new set of park gates as our contribution to support the wider project.
The new gates were designed and fabricated at Denholm’s Aintree site and have been installed prominently at the entrance to what was originally the bowling green.
The gates create a ‘proper’ entrance to the park and also add an additional measure of security. Combined with fencing and a new path, the gates create a prominent new feature which has received extremely positive comments from visitors to the park over recent weeks since they were installed.
