Virgin Media UK Deploy Engineers to Clean Up Musselburgh Beach

Engineers from cable TV and broadband ISP Virgin Media last week took time out from their on-going work in Musselburgh (East Lothian, Scotland) to help clean the local beach, which resulted in the team of 20 collecting 10 large bags of litter. The local network is currently being extended to a 6,000 extra premises.

Musselburgh is the largest coastal settlement within the East Lothian (Scotland) area and Virgin Media’s local extension work is due to complete by the end of 2019 (here). However, as part of the operator’s community engagement projects, a number of engineers also kindly donated their spare time to clean up the beach. The operator will also be sponsoring the Honest Toun Family Day at Musselburgh Racecourse on Sunday 29th September.

VM’s Regional Director for Scotland, Julie Agnew, said: “We’re extremely proud of all our staff who gave up their free time to clean up the much-loved Musselburgh beach. We know it’s a place where both local Musselburgh residents and visitors spend time connecting with people – whether that’s getting involved in a community event, going on strolls with their friends or playing with their families.”

    Lovely and everything, but why should they use their “spare time” to do something for Virgin Media’s benefit rather than being paid to do it as part of their paid work?

    Maybe out of their love for working for VM, but maybe if VM want to put out a good news story they should be paying the people who are part of that story/PR.

    20 folk collected 10 bags of litter.

    How long were they there for, 20 minutes?

    Still, it makes for a nice wee press release.
