New livery for grounds maintenance vehicles at Haydon Wick

New livery for grounds maintenance vehicles at Haydon Wick 800 800 Haydon Wick

Haydon Wick Parish Council’s fleet of grounds maintenance vehicles have had a total refresh with brand new livery. This includes the addition of two new electric vehicles which were recently acquired.

 

The electric vehicles take the Parish Council a further step towards one of its strategic aims of being carbon neutral, and to deliver a green and sustainable place within the next five years. The vehicles are charged daily at the Council Offices, which also has an existing solar PV array of panels on the roof of the building.

 

The livery for one of these electric vehicles has kindly been sponsored by N & B Foods Ltd who generously donated £300 towards the design and installation of the clean and bright branding panels.

The Director of N&B Foods, Nilesh Chavda said:

“As a local Swindon employer through N&B foods Ltd and a Haydon Wick resident, it gives me great pleasure to be able to help keep our local community clean and tidy.”

The vehicles are already out and about doing important grounds maintenance tasks and helping to keep the Parish clean and tidy for its residents. The reduced size of the vehicles will improve efficiency within the team, as they can be driven along footpaths so travelling time between site visits is reduced.

 

Councillor Vinay Manro, Chairman of Haydon Wick Parish Council had this to say about the new livery:

“As Chairman of the Parish I am delighted to see the vehicles with their updated livery. The fresh, new look immediately identifies the fleet, and supports the Council’s aim of a cleaner, greener and more sustainable Parish.”

Haydon Wick Parish Council is proud to announce the addition of two new electric vehicles to its Parks & Open Spaces fleet of vehicles

The Goupil G4 trucks have zero emissions and will be in regular use to carry out various grounds maintenance tasks within the parish. The addition of the G4 trucks means that one quarter of the Council’s fleet is now electric.

Councillor Vinay Manro, Chairman of Haydon Wick Parish Council had this to say about the new vehicles:

“The Parish is very proud of these recent additions to the fleet. Being electric they will help reduce emissions, improve the Council’s carbon footprint, and make Haydon Wick a greener and more sustainable place to live.

This is another step in reducing the Parish’s carbon footprint and compliments the existing solar panels on the Parish Council office roof. It is a future aspiration for the Parish Council to install solar panels in the future on the roof of the grounds maintenance facility”.

 

The Council hopes to deploy more environmentally friendly trucks as the vehicles become due for replacement.
