Newark Fire and Rescue Station will start to take shape now all demolition works have been completed. A traditional sod cutting ceremony took place last week to mark the next phase of the project.
The ceremony was attended by Kevin Manterfield, Gavin Parker and Ian Keogh along with the chairman of Nottinghamshire Fire Authority, Brian Grocock, and Newark station officer Seth Armstrong.
A sod cutting ceremony was held on the site of the new North Hykeham Community Hub to celebrate the commencement of the contract. The ceremony was attended by the Mayor of North Hykeham Susannah Spencer, Deputy Mayor Edwin Rigby and Town Clerk Tracey Broughton, Kevin Manterfield (Gelder Major Contracts Director) and Ian Pickwell (Gelder Contracts Manager). The community hub will be comprised of changing facilities, club room with kitchen, meeting spaces, and multipurpose areas.
