Our colleague volunteers have helped to rewild North Somerset as part of the North Somerset Council’s ambitious rewilding programme where they took part in a planting day at Worle Moor Road, Weston-Super-Mare in February.
Rewilding involves creating habitats for wildlife to flourish, increase biodiversity and help mitigate the effects of climate change and last year the council agreed to rewild as much land as possible and have aimed to plant an extra 5,000 trees in the area.
We run a successful staff volunteering programme which gives our colleagues the opportunity to take up to four days off a year to help in LiveWest communities.
Kat Perks, LiveWest Area Housing Manager said: ‘’It was great that our team had the opportunity to plant trees in Weston using our allocated volunteering time. We enjoyed working with North Somerset Council on the rewilding project in an area close to one of our LiveWest schemes in Weston-Super-Mare. We planted 120 trees in the afternoon, and we will now be able to watch them grow whilst we out and about visiting our neighbourhoods.’’
