Armed with trowels and bulbs, Glanville’s Customer Liaison Officers (CLO), Katie Green and Tim Puffer, with colleagues from South West Water, braved the elements to add a splash of floral colour to the picturesque Longstone Cemetery in Carbis Bay.
CLO Katie volunteered Glanville’s support for the ‘Big Plant’ initiative, organised by Cornwall Councillor, Linda Taylor, who was keen to improve the appearance of the local cemetery in Carbis Bay, with the help of volunteers.
Glanville’s were undertaking a large sewer improvement project that ran past the entrance to cemetery at the time.
Funding for the planting of wildflowers came from Cllr Taylor’s Community Chest Fund, with an additional donation from South West Water and wildflower bulbs and materials from Glanville Environmental.
Following the event Cllr Taylor sent the following message to the staff at Glanville’s who helped out.
“Dear Tim, It was lovely to meet you yesterday with your colleague from Glanville. The project at Longstone sends a very clear message to the community that Glanville Environmental value the important partnerships that can be forged when residents, and in this case, Glanville work together on an environmental issue that benefits residents and visitors.
Your commitment, energy and bulb contribution will make the Longstone Cemetery a visual delight.
Once again thank you.”
