Wavin Plastics support Canal Restoration Scheme

Wavin Plastics has donated piping to the Wiltshire and Berkshire Canal Trust to help repair more than 60 miles of canal in Wiltshire. The trust has used the pipes as a chute for placing concrete into the wall of the lock near Lyneham in Wiltshire to add necessary reinforcement to the structure.

Martin Buckland, Fundraising Director for Wiltshire & Berkshire Canal Trust, comments: “Wavin’s donation of the 600mm diameter half section of pipe means that the void behind the brick lock wall can be filled with concrete easily and quickly.”

“The aim of the trust is to protect, conserve and improve the route of the Wiltshire & Berkshire and North Wiltshire canals for the benefit of the community and environment. We wouldn’t be able to do this without the donation of materials from companies like Wavin Plastics.”

Denise O’Leary, spokesperson for Wavin Plastics, comments: “As a Wiltshire based company we were delighted to be able to provide the piping that the trust required to enable them to continue work on the restoration scheme.”
