Selco Builders Warehouse has donated £500 to a Redhill School to mark the opening of its 36th branch in the UK at Orchard Business Park.


The ribbon was cut on the Selco Redhill branch on 2 February with three children from nearby Salfords Primary School – Katie Newton, Olivia Newton and Abbie Jo-Goacher – taking part in the ceremony after winning a special competition to design a house of the future.


As well as running the design competition, Selco donated £500 worth of building materials to the school to enhance their outdoor area.


Martin Beard, head at Salfords School, said: “It has been fantastic to link up with Selco Builders Warehouse for its new branch launch.


“The design competition got a great response from our pupils and the judging was very difficult because there were some very impressive entries.


“The three winners had a fantastic morning opening the new branch and we thank Selco for the opportunity.”


Chris Cunliffe, Selco Buiders Warehouse’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to have opened in Redhill and further extend the Selco offering in London and the south east.


“We were thrilled to have three young members of a Redhill school playing a significant part in the official opening and we will continue to engage and support the local community wherever possible.”


Jason Wade, branch manager for Selco Redhill, said: “Preparations for the new branch have been ongoing for several months and we are delighted to now be officially open for business.


“We have a very strong and dedicated team and are confident we can offer a first-class service.”


The Redhill branch offers an extensive range of building materials, drainage, roofing, heating, plumbing and electrical products, a range of timber including a bespoke cutting service, doors and windows, ironmonger and fixings, decorating supplies, landscaping and fencing items, as well as kitchen and bathroom showrooms.


There is also an in-branch café, trade counter services, direct-to-site delivery options and van-size parking spaces, all designed to make it easier for tradespeople to get on to the job as soon as possible.
