The South Downs National Park is host to our countryside HQ, providing a stunning landscape that inspires all aspects of our work. As a company, it is important for us to give back to this beautiful and ecologically important environment; work that contributes towards our sustainable journey.
When we learnt that one-third of Britain's bee population has disappeared over the past decade, we were compelled to find a way to support these key pollinators. In May 2018, we set up our first two Aspinal beehives, and now have 15 hives across both our HQ and our Chairman's family home, all buzzing with life. We have also supported the South Down's 'Bee Lines' project, which has worked with farmers and other landowners to create new wildflower corridors, linking habitats, and encouraging pollination.
