Climate Week Event sees staff swap old items rather than buy new!
Staff at Quorum have taken part in a Swap Shop as part of Climate Week Activities across the Business Park. The premise of the Swap Shop is that instead of buying new, staff can swap old unwanted items. The stall was run with an honest policy and staff were free to come and go all day, at the end of the day leftover items were donated to local charity, St Oswald’s Hospice. Items left inlcuded clothes, dvds, books and games.
As well as the Quorum Swap Shop, the Quorum Wildlife Group has been re launched with a number of plans made for Spring.Events and Sustainability Manager, Laura Barber says ‘The Wildlife Group are fairly active here across the park, but in the winter months we tend to focus on simply keeping the bird feeders stocked over the colder months, but now spring is round the corner we want to introduce some exciting activity across the park to get staff really engaged in Sustainable initiatives. We’re planning a stream clean of the letch that runs down the back of the business park and we’ve recently partnered with a local community project working on the local Village Green, where we will be assisting with the planting of trees near our Wildlife Corridor’.
