Last Month’s ‘Snow Day’ in Wakefield: Delivered by Allied Plant

Here at Allied Plant, we offer excavation, plant hire and haulage services to the commercial, industrial and residential sector. The professional services we offer are versatile and there are no jobs too big or small! Last month in Wakefield, there was a surprising and unexpected ‘snow day’ that took place which we helped to create with our grab Wagons. And it captured the hearts of children and families everywhere who simply couldn’t wait until winter for their next sledging adventure.

Trinity Walk Shopping Centre teamed up with Snozone at Xscape in Yorkshire to create a real snow sledging experience for shoppers to enjoy. And together with a free snowboarding simulator, the event certainly turned some heads and put some smiles on faces. So we’re very pleased to have been of service to all the organisers. Taking place in the city centre, snow was delivered by the truckload with the help of Allied Plant vehicles. And after a few hours are unloading and hard graft from the Snozone team, the sledging track was finally ready for action. With the assistance of our sturdy 8 x 4 steel bodied tipper grab wagons, an impressive 45 tonnes of snow was dropped off in Wakefield centre – all for the purpose of some winter themed family fun!

“Two hours and three massive truck-loads later we had a queue of kids ready to sledge and they just kept on coming. Seeing the smiles on their faces and the parents’ pride when even the youngest flew down the hill was just brilliant and a great start to the holidays.” – Lucy Grice, Trinity Walk Marketing Manager.
