Lafarge Tarmac, the leading UK building materials and solutions company, has invested in the Amman Valley Trotting Club – a former slag heap transformed by local volunteers.Leigh Smith, Lafarge Tarmac Zone Manager for Cornelly Quarry, Bridgend explained: “Supporting local community initiatives is really important for Lafarge Tarmac. As a responsible company, we want to be a good neighbour and make a positive contribution to local community groups around our sites. Getting involved in projects like this is a great way for us to help out. We’re delighted to support the Amman Valley Trotting Club by donating 200 tonnes of crushed stone for the track. We hope it will go from strength to strength.

It is great news for the trotting club, too. Their secretary, Trudy Launchbury, said: “For someone to help us like this is brilliant! It is the first time this type of venture has happened for us and we are delighted to be working in partnership with such a high profile business”.
