Employees at a construction company have collaborated with their supply chain to support community organisations during a week-long initiative.

Morgan Sindall’s annual Neighbourhood Week sees teams across the northern Home Counties support their communities by lending a helping hand and donating their time and skills to projects which will enrich and improve areas.

Eighty two volunteers from project teams and their supply chains across the region have dedicated 1,190 hours so far to community tasks, including projects in Watford and Borehamwood.

Aberford Community Centre in Borehamwood has been freshened up, with help from Images Decorating Services and Panoramic Landscape Contractors.

The company also helped give the centre’s garden a makeover.

The centre, managed by Communities 1st, acts as a volunteer and community hub in Borehamwood, providing residents with social clubs, children’s activities and fitness classes.

Helen Ives-Rose, office services manager at Communities 1st, said: "This project has created a lovely entrance area to our community centre and it is something which we could not have achieved on our own.

"Morgan Sindall Construction and their contractors have been fantastic in organising this, it is a complete transformation. We are very grateful to all involved."

Meanwhile, volunteers from the team working on Hujjat Primary School in Harrow Weald have been redecorating the internal communal areas at the Peace Hospice in Watford.

David Rowsell, area director at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: "We are incredibly proud to be able to participate in Neighbourhood Week, which acts as a positive opportunity for our teams and project partners to give back to the communities at the heart of where we work."
