In a nutshell, the gravel industry is about making money.
It’s about extracting oil from the rock and refining it into something that can be used for cement, concrete, concrete mix or any other use.
For most, the industry is a source of jobs and income, but for some, it’s also a way to make a bit of money.
That’s why the gravel institute has launched a campaign, with the aim of raising funds to help build a sustainable gravel business in the UK.
The idea is to encourage people to buy some of the world’s best gravel and put it in the back of their cars.
“The gravel industry in the US is still growing but it’s slowing down,” said Matthew Linton, director of the gravel Institute.
I want to go back to basics’ In the UK it’s estimated that one in five gravel is used in building the cement, cement mix or concrete mix in the construction industry, which in turn creates jobs and profits. “
But what we’re trying to do is bring a little bit of the growth in the gravel business back to the UK.”‘

That figure is rising and it is predicted that by 2020, the United Kingdom will have more gravel than it does concrete.
“I think that there’s a bit more emphasis being placed on the gravel as a fuel source, and that’s why we have a really big interest in getting our gravel out into the community,” said Linton.
“And we’re not just going to go into the backseat and put this stuff in our cars. “
We’re not going to just give it away. “

We want to help people get out of their car and take it out of the back, and hopefully that will make a difference to the communities and the economy.”‘
If you buy it, you own it’ In order to encourage the industry to stay on track, the Institute is holding a competition called The Gravel Industry Tour, where anyone who buys a gravel garden will get a free sample.
The gravel is sold for £30 a week to those who donate the cash.
“We’re just trying to help get the industry up to speed and getting people in the door,” said Peter Beddington, managing director of gravel Institute UK.
“If you’re interested in joining us and getting a sample of our gravel, then we’d love to hear from you.”
In the first phase of the competition, 100 participants will be invited to join the gravel tour.
“Once we’ve had our first 100 people join, we’ll then open up the next phase of our programme,” said Beddingham.
“This is a very short and focused programme so if you want to join us for the full programme, we’d still love to have you.”
The first four participants will receive a free gravel garden sample, and all other participants will get £30.
In the second phase, another 100 people will be selected to receive a sample and be given a £100 voucher for their gravel garden.
The next four people will also receive a £40 voucher and the final four people who join will receive £50.
In total, more than 100 people are being given free gravel.
“A lot of people have expressed interest in joining this programme and that will help us get people in to the programme and getting them on the tour,” said Mr Beddham.
“That will hopefully get them out of a car and into the gravel and get them using it for something they might not normally use.”
