A Big Thank You to Carillion Tarmac
Over the years the car park at the
Goosedale Sports facility, the Home of Hucknall Sports Youth
football club had deteriorated so much that the monthly ritual of
filling in potholes to ensure reasonable access for cars was just
not the long term fix.
Sports Chairman Alan Spray decided enough
was enough and engaged with the major contractor for the new
Hucknall Inner Relief Road Carillion Tarmac asking if there was any
chance that some of their redundant material could be used to fill
in the potholes.
Alan stated "it was a complete shot in the
dark thinking at best what could happen is that they would drop a
load of scrap material such that we could continue the process of
filling in potholes"
In early 2017 Alan met Harold Shaw, the site Public
Liaison Officer for Carillion Tarmac, to view the area and see how they
could assist. Harold made contact 2 weeks later explaining that Carillion
Tarmac would not only fill in the potholes, but also lay some asphalt in the
access and half of the car park in February.
The works took place
over 2 days on the 15th and 16th February and in true DIY SOS style as an
army of people descended on Goosedale to do all of the works.
Alan said "I was completely gobsmacked by the
generosity of a company like Carillion Tarmac who had gone out of their way
to support and improve things for a local voluntary youth football
organisation such as Hucknall Sports Youth football club. I have nothing but
praise in complementing Carillion Tarmac for undertaking the works in such a
safe and professional manner – all of the operatives took a very positive
interest in our club activities".
Carillion Tarmac’s Project Manager, Jonathan Falls,
said “When approached by the Hucknall Sports Club about some car park
repairs, we were only to happy to take a look and see if we could assist.
When we saw the condition of the car park and damage it could cause we had
no hesitation in assisting the club with a newly surfaced car park. As part
of our commitment to the Considerate Constructors Scheme and leaving a
positive lasting impression on the local area, it was a pleasure to be able
