Lafarge Cement to celebrate 100 years
Jul, 16 2012
LAFARGE Cement UK is inviting people to an open day at Aberthaw Works on July 21 (10am to 3pm), to celebrate 100 years of operation at the site.
Visitors will be able to talk to employees and go on a guided tour of the works and quarry.
Works manager James Kirkpatrick said: "We are very keen to share our centenary celebrations with as many local people as possible.
"Aberthaw Works has played a very important part in the local economy and communities of the Vale of Glamorgan for a long time.
"It is important to us that we mark this milestone by opening up our doors for people to come on site and find out more about our operation in the 21st Century.
"The Open Day will include tours of the Works and quarry, an exhibition giving an interesting overview of the 100-year history of the site, and displays from other local companies and organisations," he added.
"Visitors can get close to some of our giant mobile machinery, and we will be offering refreshments along the way, while for children we plan to run a competition in connection with the tours."
Everyone is welcome but visitors are asked to contact the site in advance if they want to take part in a works tour.
"This Open Day means a great deal to the whole team at Aberthaw Works, and we hope to see as many visitors as possible on July 21!" said James.
If you are interested in a tour of the works as part of the open day, call 01446 752300 (choose option 1) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visitors are reminded to wear sensible clothing and flat sturdy shoes
