Torwood Scouts thanks Norbord for new flooring

A group of Falkirk Scouts has thanked Norbord‘s team at the Cowie plant for helping youngsters take to the floor for even more community activities.

The 2nd Torwood Scout Group, based at the hall near Glenbervie golf course near Stirling, called upon Norbord to help with a flooring issue.

The group unveiled a new section of the hall in 2014 but, as the hall is used so much by the Scouts and groups from surrounding communities, the flooring in the old hall had fallen into disrepair and needed to be replaced.

As Norbord provided the flooring for the new part of the hall back in 2014, Gordon Laing, chairman of the group’s executive committee, approached the business to ask for another favour. The company donated CaberFloor P5 flooring to cover a total of 720 sq ft to replace the old hall floor. Norbord flooring now covers a total of 2275 sq ft of the floor space in both halls.

Laing said: “The hall is our base but it’s also used by people throughout the whole community, so due to natural wear and tear, the old hall floor was in need of repair.

“With the flooring donation, Norbord has helped bring the hall in line with modern standards and has set us up happily for many years to come.

Nick Fedo, general manager at the Norbord plant in Cowie, said: “As a business at the heart of the Cowie community, it’s important that we support local groups and organisations wherever we can.”
