Support continues for The Aspinall Foundation

During the first Lockdown, the Ian Williams team in Maidstone answered a call from The Aspinall Foundation to donate their time and skills to carrying out some essential maintenance works at the struggling Port Lympne Safari Park, wild animal reserve and hotel. Since this first voluntary project, the park has become a valued customer for Ian Williams and we have completed a full office refurbishment, complex renovations to the Garden Room Restaurant and reflooring and decorations to the Wolf Lodge and Rhino Lodge accommodation areas.

Whilst on site, it was noticed that there were a few areas which needed additional attention. The team decided to undertake these works free of charge as part of their continued effort to support The Aspinall Foundation. Although outside the scope of works, the onsite team prepped and repainted 27 bollards around the outside of guest services and mansion, and repaired the lost lighting to the downstairs area of Wolf Lodge.
