We have always enjoyed close links with our local community, with many of our staff involved in a range of voluntary work close to home.
We have long term relationships with both Bath Spa University and Bath University and have previously offered mentoring support to BSU students through the BSU Enterprise and Employer Liaison service. This year we offered a graduate placement position, giving the opportunity of a ‘real life’ work experience. We hope to continue these relationships in the future.
Bath always offers special opportunities, and this year we were asked by the residents of South Stoke to support their local! The Packhorse Inn, South Stoke is one of the area’s oldest and much-loved pubs, and its demise sad to see. However, following its purchase by the local community, we assisted by undertaking ecology surveys to support its restoration. We hope to join in the reopening party next year!
Finally, looking forward to 2017, the three local charities to which we will provide special support to in the coming year are Dorothy House Hospice Care, The Golden Oldies Charity and the Genesis Trust.
