CCG digs deep for community project
Contractors CCG, who are building new homes for River Clyde Homes in Port Glasgow, have donated a rotary cutter to a local community project.
Parklea Branching Out is a voluntary organisation that provides local people with support needs giving them access to training, work experience, supported employment and recreational activities. The new rotator from CCG breaks up the soil, a process formerly done by hand, before planting and growing vegetables.
A spokesperson from CCG said: “Our partnership with River Clyde Homes allows CCG to deliver much needed housing to the area of Woodhall whilst providing assistance to the local community. Parklea Branching Out was the perfect choice and we hope our donation will go a long way in aiding the service users with their recreational activities.”
Heather Dowds, neighbourhood planning and development officer at River Clyde Homes, said: “As part of River Clyde Homes’ ongoing commitment to delivering community benefits through its contracts, we are delighted that CCG has been able to donate the rotary cutter. In addition to this, CCG has also employed two apprentices and provided seven work placement opportunities through the recently completed Woodhall Phase 2 contract which has been great for the Inverclyde community.”
She added: “We are pleased that CCG will continue to involve Parklea Branching Out with future planting activities at Woodhall. CCG have also employed a further two apprentices and committed to providing nine work placements as part of the Woodhall Phase 3 contract which began in June this year.”
CCG is currently on site at Phase 3 of River Clyde Homes’ Woodhall project, delivering 16 energy efficient homes. The homes are due for completion in December of this year.
