This morning Hydro Cleansing Limited held a very successful HGV Cycle Awareness training session for all drivers, operational staff and Directors.
The session was delivered at 7am by Sergeant Simon Castle from the Metropolitan Police ‘Exchanging Places’ scheme at their premises HCL
House, Beddington Farm Road, Croydon. In attendance were Chris Snelling (head of Urban Logistic and Regional Policy) from the Freight Transport Association, Jack Semple from the Road Haulage Association and Tom Brake (MP).
Hydro Cleansing are supporting over the next 3 days, three Exchanging Places’ scheme sessions by lending to the MET Police several of their HGV Vehicles. This reinforces Hydro Cleansing’s policy of taking cyclists in London safety very seriously following death of 6 cyclists in 13 days.
Well done to Jason and Nick for their record breaking attempt!
Nick, the former sergeant, almost bled to death when he was wounded by a Taliban attack in 2007.
In aid of injured comrades Nick and his brother Jason embarked on a heroic 120 non-stop row crossing the English Channel from Dorset to Jersey.
Supporting wounded British troops the challenge raised money for Help for Heroes.
