    Lightwater Quarries help Carlton Lodge Activity Centre

    Carlton Lodge Activity Centre asked Lightwater Quarries for their help in providing some gravel. They had no hesitation in offering to donate 10 tons of gravel to the charity based in Carlton Miniott. ‘The gravel was needed to repair damage from the winter’s rain to the banks of our lake and the paths around the lake. The support of Lightwater Quarries is much appreciated. Support from local businesses is so important to sustaining our ability to deliver safe and challenging day and residential programmes of adventurous activities to support the education and development of children and young people’ said Mark Faulkner, Head of Centre.
