Road Contractors Get Brownie Points from Local Scouts

5 April 2013

Harbour Way contractors have been busy Beavers helping out the Scouts in Port Talbot.

Costain and sub contractors Tarmac have shown that they are always prepared after coming to the aid of the 11th Port Talbot (Little Warren) group to provide them with a new access path into their hut.

The group got in touch with the contractors behind the new £107m dual carriageway in the County Borough to see if they could lend a hand with a new path as their wheelchair bound Group Scout Leader, Bill Baker, was having difficulties getting in and out of the centre for meetings, especially in bad weather, as the most direct route into the building was over a small patch of grass.

Alyn Thomas from the group said “Thank you for your kindness and speed in doing this for us. Tonight was the first time since Bill lost his legs that he has been able to open the hall and get himself inside without somebody opening up, and putting down the ramp for him. You should have seen the smile on his face.”

Bill Baker added “Coming from Pyle every week, I can’t wait to start using the new road when it’s opened later on this year. Costain and Tarmac really have pulled out all the stops as Harbour Way is providing me a direct link from my house to the club!”

Ieuan Davies, Costain’s Community Relations Manager “When we heard about the problems Bill and the group were having getting into their own hall we knew we had to lend a hand! Helping the community and leaving a legacy is what Costain is about. For us it isn’t just about building a road, we like to invest our time and energy into the community we are working in.”
