Queens of green

The Sacrewell trophy cabinet is filling up after another award win at the Mercury Business Awards.

Business Support Manager Anna Mackman and Business Support Assistant Molly Thompson were at Greetham Valley Golf and Conference Centre to pick up the Green Achievement Award on 20 May.

The award was given after months of hard work by the team to align Sacrewell with its green reputation. The project included changing refuse collectors, using recycled products on the farm and in the shop, and looking at office equipment that was more eco-friendly.

Anna said: “We’re really proud. The project started as a cost-cutting exercise but once we started looking into ways to make the business more sustainable, it became obvious that there was so much more we could be doing.

“We’d like to thank Viridor in Peterborough for their support in helping us to recycyle almost 100 per cent of our waste, VegWare for sourcing compostable pots and dinnerware and our other green suppliers who are all doing their bit to help the environment.”

Earlier in May, Sacrewell Mill picked up Project of the Year at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors East of England Awards after taking the trophies in Tourism and Leisyre and Building and Conservation. It’ll now compete at national level in the same categories.
