Turf Cutting Ceremony at DPD

Presented below is a selection of photos from the recent turf cutting ceremony held by DPD on the site for its new planned glasshouse facility. The event celebrated the beginning of the groundworks, which are scheduled to be carried out during the summer period. The exciting new project is being co-ordinated by well-known greenhouse manufacturer Bridge Greenhouses, based in West Sussex.

DPD was once again pleased to welcome special guests from it’s parent company, Atul Ltd to take part in cutting the first piece of turf to set in motion the construction process. DPD staff members also took part in the occasion, as did local Mendip councillors, to whom DPD is thankful for their ongoing support. In what is a local Somerset tradition, all attendees were invited to pour a cupful of cider into the newly dug patch of ground, to bring about good luck during the project.



A decorated cake was very kindly provided by a DPD staff member, complete with palm logo.
