Green initiative for communities

Hewden Plant Hire is teaming up with local authorities to help clean up local areas.

Its Green Communities scheme is part of the company’s wider Green Boots campaign.

It will see Hewden provide free plant to local authorities, charities and volunteer groups to support green schemes around the country.

Mark Moody, quality manager at Hewden, said: “Our aim is to concentrate on projects that would otherwise struggle to get the necessary funding.”

Possible projects include pond clearing, tree planting and improvements to local parks.
