The hard work of volunteers from Inntel, who donned their wellies and wielded their spades, has helped the Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust win a Green Flag Community Award for its management of Pudding Wood, an ancient woodland site within the grounds of Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford.
The Green Flag Community Award is a national award that recognises high quality green spaces managed by voluntary and community groups. Awarded by Keep Britain Tidy, it is part of the Green Flag Award scheme, the national standard for quality parks and green spaces.
The Inntel staff joined volunteers from MENCAP to plant a number of trees at the site, including a very rare Wollemi Pine, which was planted in the Sunken Garden. Donated by the Marks Hall Estate, this long-lived tree is of a type that dates back to the Jurassic period, so Broomfield Hospital patients, staff and visitors can now get a glimpse of the sort of vegetation that would have been growing there when dinosaurs roamed the earth!
The efforts of Inntel’s volunteers have also contributed towards the Trust being awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant, together with grants from the Forestry Commission and BAA.
Inntel’s Managing Director Douglas O’Neill said, “As a company and as individuals we are very keen on getting involved with the community and with raising environmental awareness. So to play a role in helping a local NHS Trust achieve a national green award is really rewarding. And the volunteers had a lot of fun as well!”
