We have been putting our environmental and community values into action at one of the UK's busiest beaches.

Over 60 of our people plus family members and friends took part in the first-ever Banner Beach Clean at Scarborough's South Bay. It was fabulous effort by all involved, the teams worked up and down the beach and the surrounding area and collected over 28 kgs of plastic, glass and assorted waste from the North Yorkshire beauty spot.

This was a great way to put our commitment to local communities and the natural environment into action, with the beach clean running from 11am in the morning until 3pm in the afternoon.
