Volunteers from plant hire specialists Selwood donated time and equipment to help create a unique “forest garden” for use by children at a junior school.
Staff from Selwood’s Newcastle branch swung into action to help move 60 tonnes of topsoil that had been supplied to Usworth Colliery Primary School.
The soil had been handed over by construction specialists Owen Pugh Group, who are regular customers of Selwood’s Newcastle branch, in response to a plea from Year 4 pupils.
The year 2016 is a very special one for Selwood and we're going to be celebrating it in style at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management.
Selwood will be marking 70 years since the company was founded with a special stand at the event, which runs from May 30 to June 3 at Messe München exhibition centre in Germany.
Your guide to industry-leading plant and unrivalled technical knowledge is now available in the new Selwood Plant Hire, Sales & Service Catalogue 2016.
With innovative and unswerving commitment to quality, the extensive Selwood fleet includes excavators, dumpers, telehandlers, rollers, compressors and more - all backed up with Selwood’s outstanding customer service.

Selwood has appointed experienced industry specialist James McKiver in the role of Special Projects Development Manager for its pump rental solutions division.
James, (pictured), who has worked in the civil, construction and water industries for 24 years, will work nationally on larger projects across Selwood’s UK pump rental network.
He will work closely with Selwood’s local pump rental teams and their clients to give technical support and advice on the use of pumping solutions that help keep major schemes on time and on budget.
Selwood’s pump sales teams have returned from a successful trip to Munich where they exhibited at Bauma, the world’s largest trade fair.
During the exhibition, which was attended by more than half a million visitors over the week, Selwood’s representatives took the opportunity to catch up with suppliers, distributors and fellow industry professionals.
The event became a celebration for both companies as Selwood is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2016 while SPT marks 40 years in business.
