Armed with litter grabbers and trash bags, a number of Mackley employees recently participated in the Arundel community clean-up on 18 September.

Mackley is currently located in the West Sussex town, carrying out a scheme to reduce the risk of flooding and erosion.

In total, nine employees took part in the event, picking up rubbish, collecting recycling and turning the beautiful town into a litter-free zone.

Mackley also brought along its equipment to carry out specialist tasks, such as using strimmers to clear paths.

David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said: “We are committed to working in partnership with the people who live and work in the areas where we operate, and support a wide range of local charities and community initiatives.

“I’m delighted that so many of our employees were able to support such a worthwhile initiative, cleaning up a town they have become so familiar with.”

The Arundel Tidal Defence Scheme (ATDS) is being delivered as part of Team Van Oord and on behalf of the Environment Agency.

The scheme is the first phase of planned works that involve improvements to the flood defences on both sides of the River Arun.
