We strive to ensure our team have the right education regarding sustainability, every team member is encouraged to be just as passionate about our sustainable practises as they are about excellent customer service!
Whether its through joining our Green Team, helping in our Kitchen Gardens or simply learning the importance of environmental consideration, all of our team members are actively encouraged to ‘Go Green’!
GREEN TEAM LITTER PICKS
Members of our Green Team arrange regular litter pick sessions around the grounds of the hotel to collect waste and dispose of it correctly in our divided rubbish bins. These litter picks are undertaken by volunteer members of staff who give up their free time to help ensure the grounds and gardens of the hotel remain clean and litter free.
CAR SHARES AND RIDE TO WORK
We encourage team members where possible to share car journeys to and from work to limit the need for excessive use of vehicles. In the last 18 months we have also increased the bike storage options at the hotel to allow more of our team members to ride to work from the local area, further limiting the need for car journeys.
THE KITCHEN GARDENS & EVOGRO
Our chefs are all taught the importance of home grown produce by being primarily responsible for the growth and care of all produce in our Kitchen Garden. This project allows our team to be integral parts of the ‘soil to plate’ journey, ensuring an appreciation for sustainable practices and the quality seasonal ingredients we strive to have in all of our dishes.
The chef’s also look after and monitor our revolutionary EVOGRO cabinet, allowing them to grow herbs in an energy efficient way year round.
THE BEE HIVES
Although we have a professional beekeeper on hand to monitor and protect our bees, we ensure our team get the unique opportunity to experience beekeeping first hand.
Those who wish to can take part in monthly checks of all the beehives throughout the summer months, learning about the species and their habits.
