On Thursday 15th March, the Createful team attended the annual ‘Those who plant trees, plant hope’ event in Penningtons Copse, West Moors organised by Rock Recruitment. This semi natural ancient woodland and local nature reserve is being managed with the input of the local community to constantly improve the habitat for local wildlife and benefit the residents of West Moors and East Dorset as a green space for recreation.

We had the opportunity to plant several 5-6ft trees together, embark on team building exercises and even make our own natural willow bird-feeder. The team enjoyed a very pro-active day, as it was great to escape the office and head out into the countryside.  We planted Elder, Hazel and Rowan trees while also cutting down invasive species to give the new trees more light. It was a different team bonding experience to what we’re used to here at Createful, but one which we thoroughly enjoyed.

It is always nice to take part in events like this giving something back to the environment, we’re very aware of our Corporate Social Responsibility at Createful and we are committed to doing our part to making places better for future generations.
