The Wallops Pre-school has recently had their outside area made more accessible after a team of employees from Amey, who provide highways maintenance services across Hampshire, spent a day volunteering at the pre-school.

The team of eight repaired and reinstated a number of outdoor facilities including the decking area and artificial grass. The updated outside area is now safer and more enjoyable space for the 30 children who attend the pre-school.

Debbie Evans, from the Pre-school in School Lane, Nether Wallop, said: “Thanks to Amey the children at the pre-school can now play, learn and enjoy our outside area safely and consistently. Being outside helps the children to develop in many areas and prepares them for the big outdoor world.”

Every Amey employee can spend a day volunteering with a charity or community group of their choice as part of our community engagement programme. Over 60% of Amey’s local workforce in Hampshire has used their day during 2015 to make a difference to the local community.

David Fawcett, Customer Services Manager for Amey, added: “It’s always a pleasure to be able to work with the local community and deliver projects which make a difference to an individual or group. Our employees always enjoy taking part in community projects and seeing the children’s delight at their new outdoor area makes it all the more worthwhile.”

Amey delivers highways and winter maintenance services on behalf of Hampshire County Council.
