Project: Somerset Levels Flood Relief
Client: Somerset County Council/Local communities
Value: We supplied 6,300 sandbags at no cost
When the Somerset Levels were submerged in water during the winter of 2013/14, Wainwright used its expertise in producing high-quality bagged aggregates to bring relief to the worst-hit areas.
We supplied 32,000 sandbags to villages and hamlets throughout the county, helping residents and the council to keep the flood water at bay.
Our bagging plant worked around the clock to produce the sandbags, while our haulage team transported them efficiently and safely. As a result, we helped alleviate emergencies in many areas, demonstrating our ability to respond quickly and effectively to the needs of our client base.
Out of solidarity with the local communities of which Wainwright is a part, we donated the sandbags free of charge.
