Club BB

BB clients at Green Park, Reading for our last Club BB event in July 2017

Club BB is our exclusive club for certified organisations or those currently undergoing assessment.

Members have access to exclusive events for learning, knowledge sharing and networking, which occur every year. 

 

Our last one was held at Green Park business park in Reading. We started the morning with introductions and a lovely guided tour of the site, narrowly avoiding a heavy downpour. Green Park was once an area of low-lying, poor quality agricultural land and in its development a wide range of natural habitats, which support a diverse variety of birds, animals, and wildlife, has been created. The focal point is Longwater, a living lake that has been rapidly colonised by fish. Around the park there are tern rafts, bat boxes, birds nests, grass snake nurseries, wildflower meadows, bird hides, insect hotels and a worm farm. Walking around during lunch time showed us just how appreciated and utilised this peaceful park is to businesses and the public alike. 

 

After lunch we were treated to a presentation from Network Rail on their no net loss vision for biodiversity, musings on the looming EU Exit, and a very well received overview of how nature can benefit the health and wellbeing of us all. We finished off discussing any benefits and struggles with the BB requirements so clients could share best practise. Events like this are such a useful networking tool for our clients, allowing them to collaborate with others experiencing the same issues or successes.
