Buildbase helps students get real practice

Published:  26 February, 2010

ASHBORNE: Local Buildbase and JDB Building Contractors helped students from Derby College pave the patio area of Clifton Cricket Club.

Students from the college had the opportunity to improve their skills on a real situation rather than in the classroom with the donation of materials from Buildbase and free transport from JDB Building Contractors.

The repair to the paved area was necessary because the club is one of the few Clubmark accredited organisations in the Derbyshire Dales and the slabbed areas around the club's buildings were becoming increasingly hazardous.
