A Meet The Buyer event will be held in Welshpool on February 13 for businesses and trades to learn more about opportunities to work with us on the build of the town’s new primary school.

It will take place at Welshpool Livestock Market from 8.30am to 12.30pm. The school is being built as part of the Welsh Government’s and Powys County Council’s 21st Century Schools programme. Work originally began in July 2018 but came to a halt in 2019 when the main contractor Dawnus went into administration.

We took over the scheme in January and the school is due for completion in August. We are now looking for businesses within a 15-mile radius of Welshpool to join our trusted supply chain for the project.

Managing Director Steven Owen said: “There is a wealth of opportunities for businesses that reflect our values and commitment to construction excellence to work on this exciting development.

“We are looking for suppliers and contractors based within 15 miles of the town so we can ensure this build has a positive financial impact on the community. We can also offer business and skill mentoring to smaller businesses or tradesmen that want to explore their potential for growth.”

The event is open to any businesses or tradesmen interested in learning more about the project and refreshments will be available. People can turn up on the day but anyone with questions in advance should email info@paveaways.co.uk.
