Building a ramp for Halfway Community Centre
Members of our team have spent time at Halfway Community Centre in Sheffield, providing them with a new paved ramp to assist with disabled access.
The specialist child and family centre is home to a range of local groups and events, including a ‘Little Squirrels’ play group where children are encouraged to explore and learn within forest-styled activities.
Our team have improved the facilities at the centre by laying a new paved ramp joining perimeter of the centre to the outside garden, allowing free movement between the two.
Contracts Manager Gareth Wagstaffe who arranged the works said: “We were happy to assist and be involved with some much needed improvement works, for such a great facility who reach out to a variety of different learning groups, giving valuable and additional support to many children.
Thank you to our sub-contractor Browne Civil Engineering who carried out the works. We hope the children can now enjoy the improved facilities even more, and it was certainly a pleasure to be involved.”
We were delighted to hear that Henry Boot would support the centre by laying the path and paving around the building. The community and children that visit the centre will now be able to access all areas and be included in every aspect of the activities. Children in wheelchairs and who are less mobile are now able to enjoy relaxing and learning in the snug sensory room and access the garden areas to spend time with their friends.
A huge thank you to Jack, Gareth and the team that did the path, we are delighted with the very high standard of their work.
