Countryside Services were called upon to lay a 50 metre underground water pipe to extend the existing water supply to the far side of the allotments. Two additional standpipes were also installed. Our ethos when undertaking work of this nature is to cause minimal disruption and to leave little or no sign that we were ever present.
To the customer's request, a trench was dug and bedded with sand to protect the water pipe.
Horsham and Shipley Community Project Men's Shed
First established in 2015, the Horsham & Shipley Community Project (a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers) aims to provide a place where local people can come along and participate in a number of activities to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle to enhance and improve their general well-being. During winter 2016, Countryside Services were commissioned to erect the 'Mens Shed' for the charity. A log cabin based workshop equipped with a full range of wood working machinery for members to demonstrate and further explore their creative talents. Since its opening, members have produced everyting from bat and bird boxes, to bird tables, benches and fences, a wood store and even a small bridge.
Horsham and Shipley Community Project Pétanque Piste
The organisers at the Horsham & Shipley Community Project decided to provide a Pétanque (Boules) facility for their members. Countryside Services were tasked with constructing four full sized, all-weather Pétanque pistes. These are competition sized areas with wheel chair access.
Due to the heavy clay present in this area, drainage was key to the success of this project. For this reason attention was paid not only to the drainage of the pitch itself but the whole site and all ditches were cleared to allow rainwater to flow away with maximum efficiency.
