Thank you so much to everyone who helped raise over £2,500 for ME/CFS by kindly sponsoring us.

Just under 11 hours after leaving Eastbourne pier and 25 miles later, all six of our DGP team who took up the challenge arrived at Brighton pier. The walk included the scenic Seven Sisters and the South Downs walk. Our just giving page is staying open for 1 month after the event, so any further donations will be appreciated: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/louise-down1

This walk was also to raise people’s awareness of ME/CFS. People suffering with M.E. experience debilitating pain, fatigue and a range of other symptoms associated with post-exertional malaise, the body and brain’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy.

Please spare a few minutes to learn more about this little known and misunderstood condition by visiting the links below:

12 men in the UK die by suicide every day, a hard hitting fact and one to take in on this day, World Suicide Prevention Day.

Whilst WSPD is an excellent initiative, people suffering with various mental health issues are around us 365 days a year.

At DGP Logistics we have made a commitment to support our people by our Mental Health First Aiders making regular site visits throughout the year. They will make their presence known and be there should anyone request advice or a confidential talk.

Turning old pallets into a bug house, our Harry’s handiwork proved a real hit with the children at Just Imagine Nursey in Wickford. Harry also made a Mud Kitchen from the old pallets as well as a seesaw from old scaffold planks and tyres, being careful to give all the wood a good sanding to avoid any splinters.

After a further request from the school Harry made a smaller Mud Kitchen for the younger children. The icing on the cake was the miniature DGP hard hats, the children just love wearing them!

Our Ionut has won the N06 Monthly Safety Award for July, seen here being presented his certificate by George Denaro from Mace.

DGP Operations manager Heinrich Fick said, “I am pleased DGP have received this award, yet it made me even happier that it was Ionut who has personally received it. He has made a significant contribution to safety on the N06 project.

Ionut is and always has been a team player, he is passionate about his work and sets a shining example. I have faith that he will continue to excel in the years to come. This is the first Safety Award we have won on N06 after successfully completing the N08 project.”

Congratulations to Aurel Harlea from DGP Logistics, for his hard work managing logistics, maintaining the visual standards of the site and safety of the public. Aurel (left) receives Mace’s Monthly Site Safety award for July, at Marshall Building Project site.

DGP Logistics Operations Manager, Heinrich M. Fick, added, “Aurel is an extremely good operative and I’d like to ensure he remains at the site for the duration of the project.”

Congratulations go once again to Christopher Hitches team at Lancer Square. The DGP Logistics team won the Mace Team Monthly Health and Safety Award for June.

Singled out for her continuing excellent performance is Christine Page, she won the Service Excellence Award, again for the month of June. Christine is seen here being presented her award by Mace Construction leader Sam Yell.

Our team from Head Office enjoyed a fun filled afternoon out of the office, challenging each other to some friendly competition where archery, axe throwing and clay pigeon shooting were on the agenda.

Participating in exhilarating teambuilding activities with your colleagues aids wellbeing and is a great way to forge relationships; increase motivation; encourage teamwork; build confidence and the all important trust – especially when axes, arrows and shotguns are involved!

The activities were followed by an enjoyable chat over dinner.

If you would like to be part of our growing family, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at
