Bellway builds fences with local scout group

Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland West) has come to the rescue of a local scout group in Bishopton.

The scouts sent out an SOS to replace the boundary fence of their hall in the centre of the village, which was falling apart.

When Bellway, who have a development Dargavel Village in Bishopton, learned about their plight they offered to replace the wire fence with a brand new, much sturdier wooden version.

Andrew Woodrow, Chair of the Group Executive for the Scout Group, said:

“We had a small post and wire fence in place previously, but when work was done on underground pipes on our grounds it got pretty badly damaged and left in a poor state. Not only did it look awful, it was a trip hazard.

“I was aware Bellway were building in the area and wrote to them and asked if there was anything they could do for us. I was amazed when they said they would replace the existing fence with a brand new wooden one.

“It looks absolutely terrific and I can’t thank Bellway enough, the whole place looks so much tidier and is much safer.”

 Andy Borland, Construction Director, Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland West), said:

“We were delighted to help build a new fence for the Scout Group as we know what an important role the scouts play in the local community and that they are the first people to help others out, so it was nice to do something for them.

“We would like to thank KMS Fencing for their support in building this fence.”
