L&S Waste Management has supplied Southampton based charity, Sholing Valleys Study Centre, with 18 tonnes of sub-base and top layer materials to improve pathways and access around the site in Sholing.
Along with improved public access to the pond and surrounding forestry, the new pathway will help with the many activities and conservation programmes run by the organisation. Such activities include children’s nature watch sessions, school day camps, and evening Bat Walks.
The Sholing Valleys Study Centre is the oldest environmental study centre in Southampton, providing educational and conservation facilities for the surrounding community.
The charity’s Founder and long term volunteer, Colin Oliphant said: “In recent years we have extended and updated our building and we continually strive to improve our facilities to help the Centre meet the demand from the community. It is only with the help of our dedicated volunteers and through the generous support from local businesses like L&S Waste Management we are able to achieve this.”
L&S Waste Management Managing Director, Mick Balch said: “We are only too happy to help the Centre with the supply of materials for this worthwhile project. The nature reserve offers a valuable service to the community and with our Southampton facility only a stones throw away from the site we have an historic relationship with the charity.”
