At the beginning of August, a new children’s playground was opened in Shurovo, Kolomna. In the frame of “Good Neighbourhood” programme Holcim (Rus) CM has made a present for children on the eve of the Company’s professional holiday – Constructor’s Day.

A fairy-tale town appeared on the central square of the district, near the Culture Center "Cementnik", the playground includes: a play complex, a carousel, swings, slides and a couple of rocking chairs. The playground is specially equipped with a bright sandpit for the smallest visitors, potential constructors. Parents can relax on comfortable park benches. For the children’s safety an environmentally friendly rubber cover will be coated on the entire area of the playground. During the installation of play equipment crowds of kids gathered around the site, waiting for being allowed to touch a “new toy” and try their hand at the game equipment.

Holcim considers crucial its participation in the life of the territory of the Company operation, with a focus on solving significant social problems. “Good Neighbourhood” programme is aimed at establishing good neighborly relations with local organizations and communities adjacent to the Company plants.
