Heavy rain, snow and the pressures of dealing with the devastating impact of Covid-19 combined to create a crisis at Kirkleatham Memorial Park and Crematorium in Yearby, North Yorkshire.
The conditions left the site and facilities, which are at the bottom of a hill, overwhelmed by water at the worst possible time. The team were already working round the clock to service an increased number of cremations and funeral services.
Selwood has become the first UK rental company to offer pumps that can be fuelled by vegetable oil in an industry-leading move that will significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The company has completed extensive testing of HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) in its fleet of market-leading pumps.
Selwood plant hire customers can now use QR codes to access bitesize video guides to help them carry out daily maintenance checks on their equipment.
The guides have been completed for the dumpers, telehandlers, excavators and rollers in the fleet and are viewable through the innovative Selwood QR system.
Pumping specialist Selwood has opened a new multi-million-pound solutions centre in London as part of ongoing investment in its premises and fleet.
The centre will bring more capacity, a bigger team and an expanded offering to customers across London and the South East. It replaces and significantly expands upon Selwood’s previous branch at Charlton, which has now closed.
It’s been an annual local landmark and a highlight of the festive season for decades – and this year the giant Christmas tree outside Selwood’s Hampshire headquarters is needed more than ever.
The huge tree has lit up the neighbourhood in Chandler’s Ford every year for 67 years, and many locals say they don’t feel the celebrations have truly begun until they see it.
The tree is traditionally put up at the end of November, with its lights turned on during the evening of the last Friday of the month.
