On Friday 13th September 2019, Aqua Construction and Travis Perkins supported Gloucester City Homes on their annual community impact day. This day is set aside every year for GCH to engage with numerous projects around Gloucester, supporting local communities. This year’s projects included:
- Tredworth Infant School: Creation of an outdoor wildlife area
- Westgate: Gardening and planting in the area
- Treasure Seekers, The Caravan: Updating the entrance and courtyard and building an accessible ramp
- The Heritage Hub: Creating a wildlife garden
- The Spring Centre: Redecorating and improving the interior and outside areas
- Gloucester City Mission: Helping to cook and serve dinner and desert
- Matson Rose Garden: Rejuvenating the area through gardening and planting
- Cardias House & Nova House Homeless Accommodation: Improving the garden area and building planters
Aqua supported GCH by supplying labour at Tredworth Infant School, creating an outdoor wildlife area to improve pupils’ learning opportunities. In addition, Aqua arranged for a key supplier, Travis Perkins, to provide the materials for a wildlife garden at The Heritage Hub where the ‘ShrubHub’ provides a pleasant and restful community garden for visitors. Planters were built to enhance a space which is designed to be accessible to all, including people with additional needs, older people with dementia and people with sensory impairments.
Aqua was delighted to work with GCH in their efforts to support the local community. Jason Wasley (Managing Director, Aqua) commented, “We have a strong commitment to social responsibility at Aqua Construction and are always keen to contribute to the communities within which we work. Improving the built environment for Gloucester residents is what we’re all about and we were glad to support GCH in doing that through their community impact day.”
