Woodhey Secondary School, Ramsbottom, call the Boys to help keep the snow bound School open for lessons.
B & E Boys like many businesses have been fighting the elements this last few weeks with the persistant snow fall, plunging temperatures and shortage of grit meaning many side streets and car parks have been dificult to manoeuvre.
When Woodhey School in Ramsbottom, contacted the Boys to help, “Bob the builder” was soon there in his “JCB” to make sure several hundred school children were able to attend lessons – whilst Bob might not have been popular with the kids – the school and parents were very pleased.
Boys were also called in with their 70ft high Access Platform to remove high level “Sun Shades” that were in danger of being damaged by the weight of snow on them.
B & E Boys have just completed alterations to several classrooms at the school including the installation of new mechanical, and electrical systems.
The Boys have been busy clearing hundreds of tons of snow from the many business park yard areas and surrounding roads as well as gritting, in what has been the heaviest and most prolonged period of snow experienced in over 20 years. Despite staff having difficulty getting into work because of the severe conditions several excavators have been out shifting snow in Bolton, Bury, Blackburn, and Rossendale.
B & E Boys made extra efforts by starting work at 5.30am to keep sites open and to make sure those who made strenuous efforts to get into work were not disappointed.
