Selwood’s Exeter plant hire specialists went to the rescue after a cry for help went up from volunteers at a dog rehabilitation and rehoming centre. Devon Dog Behaviour Rehab and Rehome put out an appeal after its lawnmower, which was regularly used to maintain two large exercise areas, broke down. The mower was old and parts to repair it could no longer be found. The plea was passed on to Selwood by Carolyn Inness of Paignton-based Aish Project Management, who is a supporter of the centre and helps to foster dogs.
Four years ago homes and businesses along the east coast of England were flooded in what was the most significant sea-surge generated flood in half a century. Since then the Water Management Alliance (WMA) in East Anglia has been working with partners to provide a long-term, strategic solution. A partnership between WMA and Selwood’s pump rental and sales specialists has helped to improve flood resilience in the region for years to come with the provision of cutting-edge pump equipment.
Selwood plant specialists have completed the sale of two versatile telehandlers to a customer who sought advice on solutions for operating in spaces where cranes are restricted. Tom Mayhew asked for advice from Selwood sales manager John Knight as he sought to invest in equipment for his Hampshire-based business. After looking in detail at Mr Mayhew’s requirements, John, based at Selwood’s headquarters at Chandlers Ford, recommended two Merlo Roto 40.30 telehandlers (like the one pictured) which are ideally suited for working in areas where space is limited.
Leading plant specialist Selwood has helped a community drive to rebuild a sports club that was destroyed by fire. Staff from Selwood’s Bristol branch decided to help after hearing about the plight of Kingsweston Sports and Social Club, which was burned to the ground by arsonists eight years ago. The blaze eight years ago had left both Lawrence Weston Football Club and Sea Mills Football Club – plus five youth teams – without a home and teams were having to use a temporary club house and changing rooms.
