School Quarry Visit - Amazing Experience!


Children from Clee Hill Community Academy saw first hand how a working quarry operates by visiting MQP's Clee Hill Quarry, near Ludlow, Shropshire.

Donna Richardson, of the school said:  "The Children had a wonderful time.  They were able to really see for themselves how a quarry works and how the rock is excavated.  They were delighted to wear the safety equipment and sit on the machines. They had an amazing experience."

MQP helps out the DIY SOS BBC TV programme


The team from the BBC show were revamping the home of a young family when they called asking for support.

Transport Supervisor Sam Moore said the company were happy to supply material for the drive and garden for the August filming in West Bromwich.

“They needed 15 tonnes of Type 1 aggregate, six tonnes of sharp sand and four tonnes of dust, which all came from our Cliffe Hill quarry,” said Sam, who was invited to see the upgraded semi-detached house being revealed to the family.

“It is fantastic to be involved in something like this – MQP have helped make a difference to this family’s life.”

MQP – Supporting Local Communities

Eco Classroom

MQP is keen to support local community projects; this can range from donations of raffle prizes for various fayres/shows, monetary donations to fund community events, sponsoring sports kits for local teams, sponsoring individuals who are raising money for local charities to providing material for construction of new facilities or to improve current ones.

So far this year MQP have enjoyed supporting many projects, here are a few you may know about.

We donated material to Swannington Primary School for a new SPACE Project – Eco Classroom.  We have also recently provided more material to the Whitwick Scout Group, this time it was used for drainage under the new grass area and to lay the car park around the newly built Scout Hut.  (pictured are our JCB Contractor Kamile and Diane Lackenby from Whitwick Scouts).  We have also donated material to Clee Hill Rugby Club for their car parking area.
