Rushcliffe Country Park Transformation is in full swing with a little help from Artex

Artex colleagues dusted off their wellies earlier this month to plant 400 hedges and trees donated by the business to Rushcliffe Country Park.

The hedgerows were planted in the parks new outdoor seating area which has been developed into a large, open, and shaded area with views of the lake and easy access to the car park, visitor centre, toilets, and café. The hedgerows will act as a screen from the car park and road and will add shade in summer as well as improving air quality and providing a habitat for local wildlife. 


A major project has been taking place at Rushcliffe Country Park this year to redevelop the visitor centre and surrounding facilities. You can read more about the project and the grand opening which took place in October here.


Seven colleagues volunteered on the day as part of our Sustainability Action Day scheme. Colleagues are able to take one paid day per year to volunteer in their local community on a sustainable initiative. Other action days this year have included clearing an overgrown area at a school for outdoor activities, improving a site at Swadlincote Woods for wildlife and installation of a floatation eco system on the canal.
