New base site for CWGC Scotland staff

05 February 2013

The CWGC staff in Scotland have outgrown the facilities they were sharing with the staff of a local cemetery. The facility proved inadequate with additional work that the recently expanded team in Scotland will have to undertake.

Due to an increase in machinery, vans, people, and the lack of room to expand at the old site it was decided to look for alternative accommodation.

A suitable location was soon found in Alloa and included a large storage area for machinery, tools, and headstones. Another part of the unit will be used as office space. The improved messing facilities within the unit includes a toilet and a fitted kitchen ideal for staff use. The new base site will ensure staff have a much more pleasant and safer environment to work from.

Staff have made use of the recent  poor weather to move all equipment and paper work to their new base.  The new unit is ideally located for the challenging work the CWGC carries out all over the Scottish mainland and the surrounding islands.
