Palletline Logistics steps in to help Castle Vale get ship shape for spring and summer visitors

Green-thinking members of the Palletline Logistics team joined forces with the Community Environmental Trust and Groundwork to make improvements to a community space to help improve wildlife and create an environment ready for visitors in the spring and summer months.

A dozen members of the senior leadership team rolled up their sleeves joining representatives from Groundwork and the Community Environmental Trust to improve the space within a community garden project at Castle Vale.

It marked the start of Palletline’s Pledge 23 project, following on from the success of Pledge 22, which aims to help charities and local communities.

Throughout the day the team joined in digging out and weeding raised planters and borders and planting a wildflower meadow. They also constructed planter signs and planted 30 hazel and hawthorn saplings which in the future will grow up to 30 metres high, providing a haven for wildlife.

Other accomplishments as part of the day included building a bee box for ground nesting bees, fixing up sheds and greenhouses, repairing bird boxes for nesting birds, cleaning up litter and the sanding and painting of benches. Also, removing debris to make the area safe.

Among the team was Palletline Logistics Managing Director Paul Elson, Operations Director Steve Poole, Human Resources Business Partner Sian Poynton and Compliance Manager John Childs.

Paul Elson said: “Pledge 23 is designed to build on the success of 2022 with more of our colleagues taking direct action to help improve life within our communities.

“We chose a Birmingham-based project to kick off our programme for 2023 due to its close proximity to our central office. Our aim is to build this culture throughout our depots, with Palletline Logistics team members taking similar action within their own communities.

“We were delighted to support the Community Environmental Trust and give our own team invaluable experience in making a positive difference within important outdoor spaces, with particular focus on sustainability and conservation.

“I would like to say well done and thank you to everyone who got stuck in. We are proud that our efforts will have a direct benefit on members of the Castle Vale community.”
