Sustainability in the Grounds Department - January 2023
As part of the Sustainability Programme within the Grounds Department, our team will be changing from the use of petrol to electric machinery. In addition, the gardening teams at both the Senior and Prep Schools will not be using any petrol machines by the end of January 2023.
The Grounds team at the Senior School have just taken delivery of a Dennis ES-34R, which is an electric 34-inch rotary mower, replacing the petrol equivalent. This is the first year of a four-year programme to change four large petrol mowers to electric. This plan will then extend to Winterfold.
