Melin staff Georgina and Emily visit Llanyrafon Primary

The importance of supporting our local communities is at the heart of what we do. We have set up a sustainable communities fund, which contractors who work with us contribute to, this money helps support our schools project, FACE.

Solar Windows Limited supported a recent teacher wellbeing project where our FACE team took to the road and visited seven of our partnership schools: Llanyrafon Primary, Blenheim Road Community and Coed Eva Primary School, Abersychan Comprehensive School, St Michael’s RC Primary School, Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary School, Cwmbran High and Caldicot School.

All schools received wellbeing packages containing tea, coffee, and treats all the teachers were so grateful, after what has been one of the toughest terms of their careers.

“Huge thanks to the team at Melin Homes and Solar Windows. All the staff really appreciated the treats, tea and coffee. Very generous of you all! It's been an incredibly tough eight weeks and we are all looking forward to a rest in half term - even if it is a Lockdown!” Mandy from Llanyrafon Primary School told us.

Dean Read, Commercial Sales Manager at Solar Windows said: “As a local company we are passionate about supporting local projects, being awarded the contract with Melin has helped us achieve this. Seeing all the pictures of the happy staff at the schools, in one of the toughest years we have had has been a privilege and knowing we helped make it happen is a reward for us in itself. We look forward to continuing our work with Melin, and supporting more community initiatives.”

Our Chief Executive, Paula Kennedy said of the project: “Our staff continue to make a positive impact in the communities in which we operate despite these difficult times. Our schools project is just one part of a rounded approach we take to supporting our communities, and residents.”
