We consider ourselves to be a company with a conscience, totally committed to the people who work with us and the communities and environment around us. That has been our approach over the past four decades and it will stay that way; precisely why we take our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) so seriously.

By adopting a sustainable approach we are doing our bit to protect the future and being able to help and support a wide range of causes around the region brings immense satisfaction.

We like to contribute where and when we can – economically, socially and environmentally.

Our on-going commitment to improving the environment see us linked in various English Heritage projects, including Dalegarth Wood in Cumbria, where we are the sole sponsors of a 10-year sustainability programme.

Basically, everything we do is about people; young and old, individuals, small groups and large masses and our aim is to continue to build around them.

Our investment into people philosophy has served us very well indeed.
