The Erith Group embrace community and chose to muck in, not muck away at the annual Thames Sailing Barge Match!
The riverside event, which reaches the finishing line at Erith, was a great opportunity for the Group to demonstrate our commitment to community investment and good causes.
In support, Erith donated the use of one our finest EURO 6 HGV’s, giving spectators the best view of the action. Members of the local community were able to take the driver’s seat and gain an insight into the complexities of modern day fleet, whilst understanding the modifications our fleet are equipped with to ensure the safety of all road users.
However, it wasn’t just the adults who took the seat, as the HGV proved to be a fantastic attraction for children of the community who jumped in the vehicle to experience being in one of their favourite vehicles.
As part of the sponsorship the Group contributed £500 towards the event which paid for the use of the Riverside Gardens.
Keith Briggs, Transport Manager commented: “It was brilliant to have all walks of the community coming together in great numbers; enjoying the cloudless sky and blazing sun – not to mention taking advantage of the spectacular views. The Erith Group are honoured to be so involved in such a timeless event.”
