Fencing to Lend an Equestrian Hand

Fencing to Lend an Equestrian Hand

December 06, 2018
Fencing was the order of the day for the members of the CEMEX Cement Commercial and the Aggregates business.

The Cement and Aggregates Commercial teams joined forces to work at Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Equestrian Centre erecting fencing and creating a 6m x 11m holding pen in a newly loaned field which significantly expands the paddock areas of the centre for the horses.

The teams integrated well and working together as OneCEMEX were able to attach three fence rails to the preinstalled posts over a staggering 350m of fence!

After the event Sandra Haddon, the Centre’s Manager, thanked all of the team members saying: “Thank you all for the effort you’ve put in today. Your effort is very much appreciated and the work of our volunteers makes a real difference to the experience of our riders, and helps us remain as an established part of the local community.”

Prior to the work some residents near the field in Galley Common had become nervous that the site was being prepared for housing as they had seen some activity, however, now the fencing is nearing completion hopefully they will see that the field is destined for a much more rural purpose.

The NNWEC, a registered charity, is a purpose-built disabled riding facility which offers riding therapy, learning and training opportunities for over 80 disabled adults and children from the North Warwickshire and Leicestershire area each week.
