Hartford Homes boost for Jurby BMX track restoration project

Thursday 25th May 2017 |

Family-run property developer Hartford Homes has donated ten wagon-loads of subsoil to help restore a community BMX track in Jurby.

The track had become overgrown and unusable so a group of local residents, with the support of MHK Tim Baker and Isle of Man BMX, set out to revamp the local asset.

One of the founders of the Jurby BMX group, Wanye Garrett, approached Hartford Homes to help secure materials to launch the project.

He explained that although the local commissioners had granted permission to use the land, they were unable to fund the building of the new facility.

Hartford has delivered ten wagon-loads of subsoil from its nearby, recently-commenced Royal Park development in Ramsey, which will now be used to form the basis of the track including jumps and berms.

Jurby BMX say they’re hoping to complete the restoration in time for summer, giving the children of the community a much-needed activity and something to do.

Hartford Homes director James Greenhalgh said: “We are delighted to have been able to support this project, helping create something tangible which can be enjoyed for years to come. We wish Jurby BMX every success and look forward to seeing the riders of the future in action!”
