Ground Control support at Nottinghamshire County Show
Along with 22 of Highways England’s other contractors, Ground Control was on hand to support the first ever Highways England village, which featured various live demonstrations including a road traffic accident showing how all the emergency services respond and work together, as well as a live resurfacing demonstration. Ground Control worked closely with Highways England environmental team to put on the EMAD treasure hunt where visitors had to find 6 different animals hidden around the village, those of which were entered into a draw to win prizes such as bird boxes books butterfly houses to mention but a few. GC also supplied installed and monitored live security cameras to keep the village safe and provided labour throughout the week to help with the village set up.
Head of Service Delivery at Highways England, Adrian Oulds commented, “Following the phenomenal success of the EMAD Village at the Nottinghamshire Show I would like to express my sincere thanks for the support you and your team gave in making this event the best it could be. When I arrived on site on Saturday morning I was amazed by the scale and variety of the EMAD village and this achievement is due entirely to the hard work, labour and financial investment put in by our partners. I truly believe we have an amazing culture within EMAD and this was proven to be the case this weekend through the dedication of the Community and people involved.”
