Hopkins and the Community

 

The local community is an important strand to our business, whether that’s through employment opportunities and apprenticeship schemes or sponsorship of local organisations, clubs and events. Here you’ll find all the latest news on Hopkins and the community in both Somerset and Dorset.

FITASC

 

We work very closely with farming community in the local area, which is why we support the FITASC clay shooting events organised locally by dairy farmer, Richard Pike. FITASC is a popular shooting discipline, which stands for ‘Federation Internationale de Tir Aux Sportives de Chasse’. It is an international form of Sporting Clays and enjoys a following all over the world. Richard’s sessions are called Farmers FITASC and was originally set up for farmers to meet, socialise and improve their skills but now the events are attended by a wealth of people from all walks of life.

We have successfully supplied cement bound material (CBM) to a large MOD tank track contract.
The lean mix concrete is mixed at the plant in our 8.0m3 Erie Strayer bowl mixer before being delivered to site using our in house fleet of rigid steel body tippers.
The material is then discharged and laid by a VOLVO 8820C double tamping paving machine and rolled before being overlaid with Micro Silica concrete.

Just a quick update on our collection for the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

A huge thank you to the team of volunteers that have been to our warehouse today in this extreme heat to sort through all of the bags and have re-boxed and labeled the lot! We were amazed that they managed to get through it all today, their sorting skills must have been second to none…it was a blur of activity when we popped our heads in earlier!

Also a massive thank you to Ben Tupman of Westbury Packaging Ltd. who not only very kindly donated all of the boxes, but also very kindly delivered them to us at very short notice yesterday.

We will keep you updated with regards to our drop off as soon as we have confirmation.

Once again many thanks to all.

Dear All

Just to let everybody know that we have had a fantastic response for donations over the last two days and I think it’s fair to say we are full. Please could we ask that unless you have already pre-arranged a drop off on Monday that you refrain from dropping off anything else.

A lot of the problems the centres have had in London in sorting through what has turned up which is why they can’t accept any more immediately. We will be sorting the donations from Wincanton and the surrounding towns and villages so that when it is delivered, it’s boxed and sorted ready to go to those who need it. We will get it to them as soon as they can take it and will store it safely until that time.

If there is anything that they are unable to accept due to peoples amazing generosity, we will ensure that it goes to others that are in desperate need of some help.

We would like to thank everybody for their support with this worthwhile cause.
