Flooding and Emergency Equipment Container

The Parish Council have purchased and installed a container to hold emergency equipment such as bedding and blankets for use in a public emergency. The container is located in Atworth Business Park, and we are especially grateful to Sky Interiors (Units 6/7) for their invaluable support in this. The container itself was purchased from Portable Space Ltd of Suffolk, who have proven to be very supportive throughout, and was assembled in one day by Cllr. Alan Lee, “ably” supported by your Clerk (plus some helping hands from Sky Interiors when it came to doing the lifting), the entire project being overseen by the Chairman of the Parish Council, Effie Gale-Sides.
