Engagement, influence and impact reflects how we interact with our colleagues across the industry and with the communities we live and operate in. The Institute of Quarrying Awards showcase great examples of teams working together to demonstrate the value of the quarrying industry to a wider audience.
The Best Community Engagement Project Award is designed to recognise projects where sites are actively engaging their local communities and achieving positive results.
In judging this award, the Institute of Quarrying were looking to understand the relationship Raymond Brown has with the local community, who our local community is, what their key concerns are and how the initiative addresses these issues.
Our Raymond Brown Community Matters Initiative encompasses our commitment to maintaining good relationships with the communities in which we work. We open our doors to local neighbours to give them the opportunity to view our wide range of operations and facilities, whilst providing learning opportunities such as the lorry design competition.
The judges commented “This was an excellent project that could be used as a template for how the industry can reach into its communities, providing education about what we do and why it is important. It showcases a great example of engaging schoolchildren through its lorry design competition, but the initiative reaches out into the wider community with great effectiveness.
All award winners from each of the regional events will automatically be submitted for the National Awards which will take place during Hillhead 2020.
