October 9, 2009

Karen Blair, Planning and Environmental partner, Cleaver Fulton Rankin and Edwin Poots MLA, Minister for the Environment presenting the Quarry Products Association N.I (QPANI) Award for Corporate Social Responsibility to Angus Kennedy of Northstone (NI) Ltd Quarry and Asphalt Division for “Going the extra mile for the community”.

Northstone were particularly commended for their regular engagement with the community with the aim of promoting and increasing the environmental and social responsibility profile of the company and the industry at large. This year they demonstrated this by organising three events and facilitating special interest group visits to their quarries such as European Minerals Open Day, Moth Trapping, a Training Event and Geological Excursions.

These awards were presented as part of the annual QPANI Conference held at the Glenavon Hotel, Cookstown.  Karen Blair was also one of the speaker at this popular event.

QPANI represents the interests of the quarry industry across the Province.
