  • Improving the quality of life for local residents

  • Promoting equality by engaging minority and hard to reach groups
  • Simon Phillips Regional Managing Director, Esh Border Construction said: “We set-up Esh Communities to engage with the local community and help provide funding for projects and initiatives which really make a difference to local people.

    “That support can have a hugely positive impact on communities and that is great to see.
