Together

Working Together to improve our countryside

Our ‘Let’s Get Green’ team braved downpours to build paths, cut back woodland – and even moved a boulder the weight of a small car!

Colleagues from across the business took to the hills for a day of rewarding work at the National Trust’s Bosley Cloud site, amidst beautiful scenery between Congleton and the western edge of the Peak District.

The team of eight were met by National Trust ranger Tim Ryan and were quick to start the day of essential maintenance work needed to vastly improve the experience of visitors to the area.

This included building footpaths and maintaining some existing walkways to blocking off others to preserve heather and plants damaged by mountain bikers.

One of the team’s more strenuous tasks of the day involved moving a huge boulder weighing nearly a tonne to allow easier access to the Cloud’s 1,125ft summit, and stunning panoramic views across countryside in Cheshire and Staffordshire.

Together’s HR director Kevin Fisher, said: “We’re really proud of all the colleagues who took part, giving their time and considerable effort to help improve the local environment. They did a fantastic job in pretty wet conditions!

“It’s great to see our groups of volunteers coming together to organise events like this, which also promote teamwork across different departments within the business, and wonderful to know their contribution has helped improve the area, so that the public can fully enjoy it.”

The National Trust echoed this, with Steve Netherwood, a volunteer co-ordinator adding: “The work Together completed at the Cloud is hugely appreciated, so on behalf of the National Trust, and particularly Tim and the team here, we offer a big thank you – and of course hope you will be able to join us again in the future.”
