Thank You!

All of these organisations have enjoyed a rewarding corporate workday with Surrey Wildlife Trust - and we'd like to say thank you!

SABMiller at Chobham Common

In November 2015 we were please to host SABMiller on Chobham Common, National Nature Reserve. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and found the wood clearing, fire building and walk through the reserve great fun and very interesting.


Guy Salmon at Wisley Common

In October 2015, another team from Guy Salmon joined the Rangers to help clear birch and pine from Wisley Common. The group were absolutely wonderful and got thoroughly stuck in to help protect the heathland.


Allianz UK at Whitmoor Common

Thanks to staff from Allianz who came out despite the rain in October 2015. The teams spirits couldn’t be broken and not only did they clear birch, but also burnt everything that had been cut down. This has opened up a bigger area for heather species to establish and grow.


 

Semafone at Whitmoor Common

Thanks to staff from Semafone who helped with heathland restoration on Whitmoor Common in September 2015. Working in two teams, the group managed to clear a significant amount of birch and pine saplings and made an impact on the preservation of this rare habitat.


Mondi at Norbury Park

Thanks to the team of staff from Mondi who came out to demolish an old fence and put their carpentry skills to the test and finished installing a brand new chestnut post and rail fence in May 2015.


UK Power Networks at Chittys Common

We were pleased to host UK Power Networks at Chittys Common nature reserve just north of Guildford. Not only did they manage to perform much need repairs to a boardwalk running through the site, but were also able to deal with some dangerous trees within the reserve. This will improve the experience for both visitors and locals who use the site.


Lloyds at Cucknells Wood

A team of volunteers from Lloyds Bank spent a busy day in May 2015 constructing a boardwalk which takes visitors into the heart of Cucknells nature reserve.


Guy Salmon at Wisley Common

In April 2015, staff from Guy Salmon helped build a new reptile fence to protect the fragile heath from erosion and to help create a refuge for reptiles along the bridle way. What a wonderful day- such a lovely group of people who built the most amazing reptile fence.
