7th January 2022 by Farnborough Airport
Throughout December Farnborough Airport held a number of community initiatives from assisting a local charity with gardening, to litter picking and tree planting in Southwood Park.
At the beginning of the month, a team from the airport along with staff from the Carbon Footprint planted over 200 trees in Southwood Park. The tree’s included Hawthorn, Hazel, Gorse, Dogwood and Rowan. “A great effort by the team, it is something that will be exciting to watch grow over the next few years at Southwood Park, a little bit of effort today for a future of benefits to the users of the park.” Gareth Andrews, Sustainability Manager at Farnborough Airport.
Towards the end of December, the team were out in the community again and took to the perimeter of the airport and managed to fill an amazing 8 bags of rubbish including a box of metal and glass, litter picking outside Ively Gate, Ively Road and Elles Road with great aesthetic results.
