TELFORD BUSINESS PLANTS TREES IN NATIONAL FOREST
A Telford business and its buying group have been continuing their green/environmental commitment with further tree planting in support of the National Forest.
For the third time Chrisbeon Office Supplies has spent a day planting a mix of walnut, beech and Scottish pine trees on National Trust ground in Leicestershire.
Chrisbeon, through partner Richard Hughes, and Advantia, its national buying group, planted 100 trees during the day in an area called Nanpanton close to the M1 motorway.
Previous planting has been undertaken by Richard’s parents, Brian and Jean Hughes, founders of the business on Stafford Park, Telford.
Brian and Jean previously attended two plantings in support of the National Forest as part of Chrisbeon’s environmental policy.
Said Richard: “I was in a different area of the National Forest to the one where mum and dad planted and with the sun shining it was a much warmer day than they had previously experienced.
“Those taking part were shown a video on the work that the National Forest does, including encouraging young people from the local area to be volunteers to help the upkeep of the woodlands.”
Chrisbeon supplies office furniture and stationery from their showroom at Stafford Park 4. They also have a showroom in the Alan Ward store at Ennerdale Road, Shrewsbury.
