Oh November, you've gone from crunchy leaves to terrible floods in such a short amount of time. It has been okay for us office folks, but the Velopost team have had a slightly tougher job braving those floods!
|A flooded road with no way through in Bath.|
However, soggy news aside, it has been a good month here. We were exceptionally proud to be able to sponsor the Bath and Bristol Post environmental awards, celebrating some of Bath and Bristol's most environmentally minded businesses. Our Chairman, Dave Broadway, gave an incredible speech, which you can read the full transcript of here. Well done to all the winners!
We were very proud to also attend the Oasis Centre, Royal United Hospital, where Dave Broadway was presented with a plaque to celebrate the fact that CFH has raised over £25,000 for the charity. The event brought together all Partners who have raised over £10,000 for the charity, so the Appeal could say 'thank you' for their support and recognise their commitment.
This week we are busy celebrating Tree Week. We have a fantastic blogpost put together here outlining the reasons why you should 'plant a tree' (spoiler: there are quite a lot of reasons!) and another post here about our very own Treesa Green, who has spent the day visiting a local school to help plant trees.
If you want to read more about National Tree Week and the pledges being made, you can visit the Tree Charter page here or our partners at the Woodland Trust here.
