Village Lifeline from Earthline

The Communities of Thruxton, Fyfield and Kimpton have received a vital lifeline courtesy of Earthline Ltd who are one of the largest independent earthmoving, recycling and quarrying companies in England.

The Car Park utilised by the Primary School and residents using the sports field had fallen into a state of disrepair and was in danger of being closed off. Parents had started to have to park on the road when transporting their children and there was growing concern over safety. Thankfully Earthline stepped in and generously offered to resurface the Car Park free of charge which was an incredible gesture. They spent two days working tirelessly in pretty adverse weather conditions and the results are incredible.

Chairman of the Sports Trust Richard Smart said “The safety of residents is paramount in our community particularly when there are children involved. The Car Park had become pretty much unusable and without sufficient community funds to carry out repairs there was a very real danger we would have to close it putting parents, children and residents at risk.

“For Earthline to step in and do such a wonderful thing for our community is simply amazing. They have done an incredible job and we now have a fantastic parking facility which will not only keep people safe but also encourage them to use the wonderful play area and Sports facilities on offer. On behalf of Thruxton and surrounding villages I would just like to say a huge thank you to Earthline for their incredible generosity and community spirit”
