Viridor - Electric Vehicle
Viridor, a recycling, renewable energy and waste management company granted us over £17,000 to purchase an electric van and charging points. The van is equipped to not only offer the means to provide volunteering and education activities in more remote areas of the Park, but also to act as a hub for groups to use while they are working and learning.
The electric vehicle provides transport across the Park for less able volunteers and educational groups, a place to store and transport tools and equipment and a convenient refreshment station so that drinks can easily be offered throughout sessions.
By purchasing an electric vehicle, we are showing support to green travel initiatives and hope this will be our first step in making our entire fleet more environmentally friendly in future years.
The funds have also allowed us to provide an electric vehicle charging point within the Park itself, so that this facility could be available as a sustainable option to all of our Park visitors.
