A local firm has been visiting schools with donations after five pupils won a contest to design a silo.

Eco-readymix supplies mortars, screeds and concrete to builders, construction companies and civil engineers throughout North Wales, Shropshire, Cheshire and Merseyside.

Earlier in the year over 15 schools from across Wrexham entered Eco-readymix silo design competition.

They received over 250 entries and narrowed them down to 5 winners. Their creative designs have now been printed on dry mortar silos and delivered to building sites across North Wales and the North West.

The Wrexham based Concrete, Mortar and Screed suppliers also gave a £200 donation to each pupils school.

The first silo was delivered last week and is now at Plas Coch at Edwards Homes new housing development.

Director Georgi Billington said, “By getting pupils involved at a young age we hope to engage them in local building works and inspire them to one day pursue a career in construction”.
