PRAISE FOR CONTRACTORS
Contractors demolishing buildings to make way for a proposed supermarket in Slaithwate have been handed plaudits for helping local residents.
Timbers and other material being stripped out as part of the demolition work going on in Britannia Road have been made available to anyone who can use it – much to he delight of Colne Valley resident and businessman Paul Mulcock.
The managing director of executive search and selection firm Broadoak Solutions in Slaithwaite, asked for permission to take wood which was being skipped to help fuel his hilltop home at Pole Moor during the winter months – and was allowed to load up his 34-year-old Land Rover and trailer. Workmen also kindly cut up the wood to make it easier to handle and transport.
Mr Mulcock said: “While not everyone is happy with the Aldi proposals, I am deeply impressed with the professionalism of those doing the demolition and construction and sensitive to the care with which the work is being undertaken.
“Giving us free fire wood is an act of generosity and as a surrogate Yorkshireman and local businessman, I’m also happy to get something for nowt!”
The demolition is being carried out by Bristol-based Nviro Contracting Ltd while PDR Construction will build the store on behalf of Dransfield Properties, based in Barnsley.
