Stacks of help for community
12:00pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
A PROJECT engineer at Andover-based storage and logistics experts SSI Schaefer volunteered his time last weekend to install racking and shelving for Andover Trees United community group.
Adam Goddard fitted the goods donated by SSI Schaefer to the group which partners 25 local schools, youth groups, volunteers and businesses.
Its aim is to design and create a new woodland for everyone in Andover as a recreational and educational green space and it hopes to involve every young person in the community in planting 10,000 trees in and around Andover over a decade.
Adam has been a member of the group for a year and in that time he has helped to plant trees, sow seeds and plant wildflowers at the ten-acre site at Harmony Woods, Enham, north Andover.
Adam fitted a large s h i p p i n g container with racking and shelves for the storage of gardening forks, spades, wheelbarrows and gazebos.
Adam said: “This R3000 range is very high quality racking with tremendous strength and durability and is ideal for the purposes of the container.
“SSI Schaefer has also donated plastic containers to Andover Trees United for storing items such as gardening gloves and the smaller tools and equipment used on the site.
“We should all take responsibility for what happens to the countryside around us both now and in the future and Andover Trees United provides an opportunity to give something back and make a real difference to the Andover community.”
