A toddler who enjoyed waving up to the crane operator at one of our development sites in Bristol has been presented by our local team with his very own model version.
The boy’s mother, who lives nearby the building project at Chantry Road, wrote to thank our construction workers for their consideration during the project and mentioned how her son had become quite a fan of crane driver Ashley Pope.
Nicola Pugh wrote: “I have been continually impressed and touched by the way that every single contractor has conducted themselves whilst on site.
“Noise has been kept to a minimum, and my 18-month-old son, Ben, has absolutely loved waving to your crane driver Ashley Pope who deserves a special mention for his friendly patience with his fan club!”
The crane has since been removed from the site but before he left Ashley and construction director Mick Arnold presented a model crane to the youngster.
Linden Homes Western managing director Clive Wiltshire said: “As a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, we do our very best to minimise any disruption caused to neighbours – so to be praised like this is very encouraging.
“I hope Nicola’s son enjoys his crane as much as he enjoyed watching the real one operate. Maybe it’s the start of a high-flying career in building!”
