Grateful communities thank Hanson quarry staff

Shap Quarry staff

Six employees from Shap Beck Quarry filled 500 sandbags for communities at risk of severe flooding

HANSON have praised employees from their Shap Beck Quarry, near Penrith, in Cumbria, who rallied round to support the local parish council and surrounding areas at risk from the recent flooding.

In response to reports on Storm Dennis, a team of six from the quarry filled and delivered more than 500 sandbags to properties and businesses likely to experience further flood damage in Shap, Bampton, Orton and Little Strickland.

Jenna Roberts, assistant unit manager at the quarry, said: ‘Shap village and neighbouring areas were severely flooded earlier in the month and we wanted to do something to ensure the protection of the communities’ facilities against further damage.

‘Both residents and business owners were extremely grateful and thanked us for our initiative, quick response and community spirit.’
