Community benefit project for CHAP Civils

Monday, August 30th, 2021


A team from CHAP Civils were last week tasked with completing a groundworks project on behalf of a local community initiative.  Located in the car park of Tesco Woodend in Aberdeen, the Youth Hub is an area for local Summerhill and Sheddocksley young people. With weekly sporting activities provided by the Denis Law Legacy Trust, Street Sports and the Aberdeen FC Community Trust in addition to visits from various community groups the hub is proving to be a hit since officially opening earlier in 2021.

The hub is situated in a previously unused area of the Tesco car park and now has benches, free wifi and some spectacular street art in place, but organisers are keen to offer more for the local young people.  Store Manager of Rousey Drive Tesco, Stuart Neil and Derek Bain, Police Scotland Partnership Development Officer were delighted when CHAP Group offered their services to clear an additional area of soil, rocks and debris in order to extend the youth hub and nearly double it’s available size.

As part of our community benefit commitment for 2021, a team from CHAP Civils were more than happy to spend a day clearing and levelling the area in preparation for the next phase of the youth hub. There are plans in place to extend the mural artwork into the newly created space and potentially offer more events in addition to the area now offering the local young people more space to call their own and meet friends in a safe and sheltered area.
