Green Day Update


Thank you everyone for biking it, bussing it, walking it or car-sharing it for our Green Day on 23rd August. Our colleagues at the PCT ensured that extra car sharing spaces were available for all their staff who took part and special thanks go to the team from Liquid who achieved a saving of 134 miles between them by car sharing.

Thank you also to Lorraine and Helen from Future Home Care and Jeremy Hall from Shout PR who all cycled in, not forgetting our own Ransomwood staff who left their cars at home. We managed to help the environment and do a bit of exercise all at the same time and saved 261 miles, the equivalent of 90,000 grams of carbon. Thanks to Forever Green for rewarding our Greenies with a hot cup of coffee and a Danish pastry.

Our M.D., James Cannon, had a tough time of it as he cycled in from Bolsover. – we think he took the scenic route as it took him 5 hours to get to the office!

After abandoning his car at a car park in Bolsover James got on his bike and cycled to Cuckney.  He then joined National Cycle Route 6 which runs from Worksop to Hucknall but after taking a wrong turn ended up somewhere on the A614.  He dodged the cows (!) and found his way to the A617 into Rainworth.

And here’s the proof that he did finally get here!

For his journey home he decided to take the bus but as he’s now found out, you can’t take bikes on the bus!  So he had to cycle all the way back again – another 2 hour journey.  He managed to save 16 miles and got enough exercise to last him until we do the whole thing again next year!
