MetroBus contractors Alun Griffiths help town council with groundworks

Staff from MetroBus contractors Alun Griffiths Ltd help landscape the area surrounding the new skate park at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre.

Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Ltd, building the MetroBus North Fringe to Hengrove Package, have recently helped Bradley Stoke Town Council (BSTC) at the new skate park within the grounds of the leisure centre. As part of the Griffiths community benefits initiative, and throughout the contract, the company works with and supports local community groups and provides assistance to local regeneration projects. This may include project volunteering days, provision of resources and materials, and fundraising.

Griffiths have transported three large boulders from Bradley Stoke Way to the area of the leisure centre and skate park for the town council and provided resources and equipment to landscape and re-seed the area surrounding the skate park.

A BSTC spokesperson said:

“Bradley Stoke Town Council is extremely appreciative of the recent contribution, from Alun Griffiths (local MetroBus contractors) to the landscaping of the new Bradley Stoke skate park. They have rotavated, top-soiled and seeded the earth surrounding the new park and, hopefully, we will soon have a mixture of wildflower borders and grass banks that park users and spectators can enjoy.”

From the archives: The “three large boulders on Bradley Stoke Way” were deposited there by the town council in 2014, in an effort to prevent travellers returning to the site of a previous unauthorised encampment.
