Fenland-based builders Kier Eastern celebrate top East of England business award

WORKERS at Wisbech-based contractor Kier Eastern are celebrating after the construction firm was highly commended at a top awards ceremony.

Kier Eastern picked up a Highly Commended award in the London Stansted Business Team Volunteering category in the Business in the Community East of England 2011 Awards for Excellence.

The awards - held to celebrate companies having a positive impact on the community - were attended by almost 350 businesses from across the region.

Business in the Community regional director, Mike Brophy, said: “I congratulate Kier Eastern on its award this year. There is a significant amount of business-community engagement happening across the region and the work that Kier Eastern undertakes is a good example.

“Responsible business is not new and many best practice examples exist already, but the operational environment has changed and there is a real need for an increase in scale that would create long-term meaningful change for the better.
