Downwell in the Community – Out and about at Easter

Downwell have been busy this Easter spreading some cheer leading up to Easter.

Downwell in the Community

It has been a busy lead up to Easter this year at the Downwell Group. We like to help out our local community and those where we work,  so we have been spreading some Easter cheer.

Thurrock Foodbank

Thurrock Foodbank are one of our nominated local charities and we have been supporting them for a couple of years. Project Director Matthew High and Business Development Manager Alan Knight took time out to deliver some bags of Easter treats to Manager Helen and her team. They work tirelessly there all year round,  we are always pleased to help them out.

Lewisham Easter Egg Hunt

Working with our client Ardmore and the Peabody Trust we hosted a treasure hunt for the local children close to our latest demolition and asbestos removal project in Lewisham.

Alan Knight and Dave Goulding doned a Rabbit and Chicken suit to give out Eggs to the children who completed the treasure hunt. The clues were set up by Ardmore and Peabody. The hunt took place in and close to the local community centre.

Local children of all ages and parents attended. A great time was had by all despite Alan and Dave being rather hot in the costumes. It was great to see the younger ones reactions to a large rabbit and chicken.

Lewisham Foodbank

Alan Knight and Devia Barker, Resident Liaison Officer of Ardmore visited the Foodbank in Lewisham with some more Easter goodies. Here they met Garry the manager who explained how they provide valuable support to those in need in Lewisham.

Without organisations like the Thurrock and Lewisham Foodbanks lots of people would go hungry.

The Jermain Defoe Foundation

We are supporting the Foundation this year as our nominated charity for our Surveyors Cup Foundation.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March

The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.

The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.

All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
