Peak Vets encourage staff and clients to be bee-friendly!

The team at Peak Vets in Derbyshire are encouraging clients and staff to become bee-friendly and help boost the environment.  

Eco-conscious staff at Peak Vets in Sheffield, have created a bee-friendly garden of wild flowers and poppies at the front of the popular primary care practice.

The reception area, which is always a hive of activity, has also been decked out with bee-friendly banners and bunting to help create a real buzz among staff and clients.  

Vet nurse Bethany Allen is Queen Bee of the Peak Vets’ sustainability project and said: “Our new bee-friendly garden has been created in a plot on the front of the practice which used to be hedging.  

“The hedge has now been removed and replaced with lots of different bee-friendly plants. We have planted wildflower seeds and some poppy seeds, which are now growing, and put in some larger adult plants.  

“It has been a real team effort. Everyone has also drawn a bee and flower for our bunting in reception, so this got the whole practice involved in the display which demonstrates why it is so important to be bee-friendly.  

“It’s all part of our commitment to the Investors in the Environment (iiE) scheme, an eco-friendly, national initiative to cut waste, emissions and protect our environment.  

“So, it’s a good cause and it’s also been great fun. We can’t wait to see what our garden will look like when all our wildflowers and poppies bloom next year.”
