Myers Building Supplies Denby Dale branch offered a donation of sand and gravel to a local school to assist in alleviating a drainage problem with a waterlogged playing field.
Hepworth Junior & Infants School Head Teacher – Mr Crouch (pictured centre with Kirsty Cattanach, Myers Building Supplies, Denby Dale Branch Manager) commented:
Our school playing field has had a drainage problem for years which has gotten progressively worse, rendering it unusable. We were quoted £40,000 to fix the problem, so we decided to try to fix it ourselves. A team of willing parents, governors and a local farmer dug out the old drains and a channel for new drainage pipes to be laid. Myers Building Supplies were kind enough to donate the sand and gravel needed to restore the area so it can once again be used for the children to play on.
