Moorland Community Centre in Lincoln has been presented with new cycle storage units by Dudley’s, a specialist contracting firm that has recently completed works on a local Sainsbury’s store.

During the large extension and refurbishment of the Lincoln Sainsbury’s store, Dudley’s offered its support to the local area. As a result, the Newport-based contractors was approached by Moorland Community Centre which was looking for suitable cycle storage that would enable local people and children in particular, to safely store their bicycles.

The cycle racks, which have been erected from Sainsbury’s unused trolley shelters, were cleaned, painted and transported by Dudley’s and its Groundworkers, O’Boyle Brothers Ltd, before being positioned and bolted in place at the community centre.  The racks have now been decorated with graffiti by local children adding a unique community twist to the storage bays.  In addition to providing a sense of achievement for the local children involved in the two-day project, the bays now form structure that is not only useful but visually striking.

Simon Johnson, Sainsbury’s Key Account Manager for Dudley’s says:

“When completing extensive works in a particular area, such as the extension and refurbishment of the Lincoln Store, we are always looking for ways to support the local community. We are pleased to have been able to directly address the needs of Moorland Community Centre and hope local children will benefit from their new and uniquely decorated cycle bays.”

Rachel Taylor, Neighbourhood Working Lincoln South, says:

“Moorland Community Centre has been looking for suitable cycle storage for some time and therefore we are extremely grateful to Dudley’s for supplying the trolley bays which now, not only provide safe bicycle storage for the local residents, but have provided the opportunity for the community to come together to produce this an iconic local landmark”
