Successful Newcastle beach clean

Successful Newcastle beach clean

9 October 2019

PHOENIX Natural Gas and its construction partner Kier joined forces to take part in a beach clean in Newcastle recently.

The clean-up, supported by the Marine Conservation Trust and Keep NI Beautiful, saw the volunteers clear over 73kgs of waste and litter in just a few hours.

Adrian McNeilly, Phoenix’s health and safety manager, was one of the volunteers on the day.

He said: “Phoenix Natural Gas is actively engaged in a corporate social responsibility programme which seeks to give back to the communities which we serve. 

“We are fortunate to have areas of outstanding beauty right across Northern Ireland and as we extend the natural gas network into Newcastle the opportunity for us to get hands on and carry out practical work to reduce the impact of litter on the coastline here was the perfect fit.

“The volunteers from both organisations worked hard and it was very rewarding to see the small difference we were able to make.”
