Balfour Beatty Living Places and Jewson help to prepare West Sussex for winter

Published:  22 January, 2016

Balfour Beatty Living Places has teamed up with UK builders’ merchant, Jewson, to donate 250 snow shovels to West Sussex parishes, aiding residents’ preparations to stay safe this winter.

Balfour Beatty Living Places and Jewson have come together to offer snow shovels to communities in order to promote safety and keep communities on the move, even if snow should fall this winter.

Martin Cope, Balfour Beatty national account manager at Jewson, said “By donating the shovels, we’re helping the community in West Sussex to prepare for the snowy season, and we’re proud to be a part of the initiative.”

Balfour Beatty Living Places and West Sussex County Council work in partnership as West Sussex Highways to repair, maintain and improve roads and pathways across West Sussex. Jewson, UK supplier of building materials, supports West Sussex Highways as a key material supply partner.

Steve Phillips, contract director for Balfour Beatty Living Places said: “We’re proud to have been providing gritting services to West Sussex for 4 years. During the winter months, we work to keep the roads clear and safe for road users, and this initiative is another way we’re helping to help keep the county moving.”
