Easter time donation at Thurrock Foodbank

The last year has seen many families struggle. The Food banks have had to work harder than ever. We were delighted to donate some more goods to our local Food bank again. Our marketing manager Alan Knight contacted them and purchased Instant potato, Long Life Milk, Tinned Custard and Sponge Puddings as these were the things they were running out of. We did buy a few eggs for the children as well.
They would welcome donations from local business or individuals.

Thurrock foodbank- Downwell have been supporting the local food bank for the last three years. They are making hampers up for Christmas to distribute in the coming weeks.
So Alan Knight loaded up his Van with a load of goodies from the local Tesco. Helen who runs the food bank and her team work so hard to distribute the food. Every bit of food donated has to be logged in and dated. It takes a lot of time.
They would really appreciate additional donations from local business.

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. 

The fizz has nearly all gone

Work is in the last stages at our project in Ruislip of the former soft drinks factory. The building demolition has been completed. We are currently removing the slab, foundations and some 'bad boy' concrete pads. Crushing will start next week.

The project has run to programme and materials being reused and recycled.

Our site supervisor Ross Evans and his site team have worked very hard on this project, so well done to them.

London Stadium Sponsorship

Thank you to Neil Dean at Eleven Sports Media for sending these latest pictures through of our branding at the London Stadium. With the team not performing that well at the moment at least our logo is getting some good exposure at peak times before and during the game.
