Hills Quarry Products has received a special award from the Mineral Products Association (MPA) for its outstanding contribution to the restoration of The Cotswold Water Park, Gloucestershire.
The award was presented to Peter Andrew, Group director – Hills Quarry Products, at the MPA’s Quarries & Nature event, hosted by BBC Country File’s Helen Skelton, on Wednesday 14 October at The Royal Society, London.
The event brought together over 60 different environmental and conservation organisations to celebrate and showcase some of the innovative and imaginative high quality restoration projects that have taken place.
Commenting on the award, Peter Andrew said: “This award acknowledges our commitment to restoring the land we use to a high standard and I am delighted that everyone’s efforts have been recognised.”
“Hills works closely with partner organisations such as the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and the Cotswold Water Park Trust to deliver areas such as this one, which are rich in wildlife and regarded as assets by the local communities. It is these partnerships that have helped us to achieve a number of awards.” ENDS
