Christmas Elves in the Central SANG

Calling all Elf Detectives

We have heard reports that playful Christmas Elves are heading to the Central SANGs again from 8th to 21st December.

We need some help checking up on them to make sure they are not getting into too much mischief. So why not have a festive walk through the Central SANGs and see who you spot playing in the trees!

The elves mentioned that they love receiving letters. If you would like to send them a letter or a drawing, they would certainly write back and send a little Christmas gift!

Please send letters to: The Christmas Elves, Mindenhurst Project Office, Newfoundland Road, Deepcut, GU16 6SR. Alternatively just send a photo of your letter to hello@mindenhurst.co.uk and we will pass it on.

 

Don’t forget to share pictures of your elf hunt with us on Facebook at Facebook/MindenhurstDeepcut.

Mindenhurst celebrates Wild Week 2023

Wild Week returned to Mindenhurst for the third year in a row, with a full week of nature inspired activities for the whole community to enjoy.

On Monday 21 August the Mindenhurst team kicked off their annual Wild Week, with events aimed at bringing residents and local wildlife together.

The week started with a new nature trail through Mindenhurst, which residents can download at mindenhurst.co.uk.

Highlights of Wild Week 2023 included an evening bat walk led by Surrey Wildlife Trust. Equipped with bat detectors, residents were guided through the Central SANG, listening to the echolocation calls and learning how to identify the different sounds from each species. It was a wonderful experience hearing their calls and watching the bats swoop overhead to catch insects.

The Mindenhurst team, supported by Surrey Wildlife Trust, also hosted events on the Village Green throughout the week, including mini beast hunting, pond dipping, and a session making wildflower seed bombs and bird feeders.

Niki Dufour, Community Relations Manager at Mindenhurst, said: “It was brilliant to see the local community getting involved with the activities we arranged, we enjoyed meeting lots of new bug hunters helping us to catch butterflies, grasshoppers in addition to a large spider! We are thrilled to have hosted another successful Wild Week and look forward to future events at Mindenhurst in the coming months!”

Work Experience Students at Mindenhurst

The Mindenhurst construction team hosted four work experience students from Tomlinscote Secondary School for a week-long programme providing an insight into careers in construction.

Working closely with the Mindenhurst project team, the students had the opportunity to learn how to take a project from the design stage all the way to construction.

The students spent the week exploring the different stages of a construction project, including design, protecting the environment, planning, procurement, health and safety, and construction. They were able to observe and participate in a variety of tasks involved in each stage and gain hands-on experience.

The group also had the opportunity to visit the Mindenhurst construction site and witness construction in action. They were able to observe skilled professionals working together to bring a project to life and see first-hand the different career-paths that are available in the construction industry. Joe Batchelor and the team from Oliver Connell stopped works to show the students round the site and introduce them to some of the tools they use day-to-day.

Niki Dufour, Community Relations Manager at Mindenhurst, said: “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with these talented and enthusiastic students, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for them in the world of construction. We have a variety of exciting work experience, apprenticeship, internship and graduate programme opportunities so if you are interested in pursuing a career in construction, please take a look at our website”.

The students said: “Thank you for devoting your time to help us gain experience in the construction industry, it has been a great week and we hope to work with you in the future!”.

A parent of one of the students added: “The students were all certainly given a detailed insight into your organisation, and a potential career in construction. We are grateful that the team found the time to engage with and support the students. The way in which the placements with your organisation have been managed, both internally and externally, reinforces the professional and positive engagement we have had with the Mindenhurst team”.

Our new electric van is helping us make an active contribution to a green society

A Greener Way To Get Around Site

At Mindenhurst, being green means thinking about the environmental consequences of everything we do. We are therefore delighted that our fully electric van has arrived on site. By switching to electricity we’ll be reducing harmful air pollution from exhaust emissions and saving 3,000kg of CO2 over the remaining life of the project. This is the equivalent of half a home’s electricity use over one year!

Our new van will be used by the team on site so hopefully you will spot it around Mindenhurst.

About Skanska

Grass cutting at the Red Road roundabout

Skanska operatives mowed the grass at the Red Road roundabout on 10 June.  Unfortunately at the time we were not aware of the one-metre mowing initiative to protect local wildflowers. We apologise to the local community for this error and have offered to donate some wildflower seeds for residents to sow in the area.

At Skanska, we are keen to work in partnership with the local community where possible. Our maintenance responsibility in this location has now finished, and responsibility now sits with Surrey County Council.

Nevertheless, our maintenance teams are being made aware of the one-metre verge initiative for their ongoing work in the county.

Should you need to report an issue, please get in touch at hello@mindenhurst.co.uk.
