Bourne and Morton Scout Hut

 

Minster Group is proud to have played a part in improving accessibility at the Bourne and Morton Scout Hut.

As part of the Lincolnshire County Council Highways Volunteering Scheme, Minster Group worked alongside Balfour Beatty in order to improve the infrastructure at the scout hut, making it much more accessible to the local community.

As with many Minster Group projects, planed material from the existing parking area was recycled for use in future works and we used recycled materials to construct the new surface.

In total, Minster supplied approximately 200 tonnes of recycled material for the project, which was crushed and screened at depot near Lincoln in order to create the car park for the scout hut.

This meant the impact on the environment was greatly reduced, reducing the use of quarried aggregate and crude oil, reducing transportation and reducing carbon emissions.

Martin Siddle, a representative from Five Acre Field Committee, said 

“The works completed will make it much more user friendly for all ages and provide a facility for the local community. I can’t wait to show it off!”

We were also there to assist with multiple deliveries to the site in order to ensure materials arrived on time ready for construction. 

Ellie Baker, Senior Project Leader at Lincolnshire County Council, was very pleased with our assistance with the site; 

“I would like to thank Minster Group who provided the recycled materials, and were so helpful with deliveries to the site”.
