Antalis mends fences to celebrate Earth Day

Antalis mends fences to celebrate Earth Day
In May, a group of volunteers from Antalis attended a team-building day at Bradgate Park, Leicestershire as part of the Antalis Earth Day activities. The aim was to help to build and repair damaged fences that protect the park’s trees from the deer that eat the bark and leaves, causing damage and risking tree health.

 The park has many trees that are several hundreds of years old, and a large number of Fallow and Red deer roaming free in the 830 acres of countryside. Over the years, many of the old fences protecting the trees had become damaged due to weathering, consequently allowing the deer to eat the bark and leaves.

The Antalis team-building day began with a short safety briefing, followed by fence building in the deer sanctuary area of the park. Under the guidance of the park ranger and two volunteers, the team set to work removing the damaged bits of the fence so they could be replaced with new wood, thus restoring the protection of the trees.

Jason Poxon, Antalis Packaging Technologist Manager commented: “All of the volunteers had a great day and spending time together as a team, as well as contributing to the protection of those ancient trees, was really rewarding!”
