Expertly directed and led by Colin Gray, Chairman of Fleet Pond Society, a working part from BT spent a day helping to clear an area of trees and saplings to allow the area to regenerate back to its natural reed bed status.
The 8 person team were participating through BT’s Volunteering scheme which sees employees making a difference in their local communities. The team enjoyed the opportunity to swap their desks, computers and conference calls for a day of outdoor physical activity. Whilst the main aim was to help in the Society’s conservation programme, the day brought the team together in a way that is not achievable within an office environment.
It was a tiring but a rewarding day and all agreed that it is something we would look into doing again!
