July '15 - Beach Volleyball comes to Canary Wharf
On a rainy Sunday morning in July we set about the task of recreating the volleyball scene from Top Gun in the heart of Londons financial district.
We were asked by the Action for Kids charity to take on the challenge of building two temporary sand based volleyball courts in Montgomery Square, Canary Wharf as part of an event bringing sport to the city. We used RH65 silica sand for the build and delivered 160 tonne on rigid tippers to the pedestrianised square, much to the bemusement of those working in the surrounding offices. Our Groundscare team were on hand to create the two courts and within 6 hours we had installed Miami Beach into the heart of Canary Wharf.
Action for Kids are a fantastic charity that support young and vulnerable children within the UK, and give them the life skills required to intregate fully into their community and prepare for life outside of childhood.
