Grundon funding for local projects in Gloucestershire passes £2 million

For over 20 years Grundon Waste Management has been an active supporter of the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust (GWT). In this their 50th Anniversary year GWT were delighted to announce that the company has now given over £2 million to local projects, such as the land purchase at Coombe Hill nature reserve and funding of the Trust’s Living Landscapes programme.

This support for environmental and community projects comes from both the company’s own resources and money made available through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Grundon also practices what it preaches and has created its own nature reserve at its Wingmoor Farm site near Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire. A Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) survey & report was recently undertaken at the reserve which contains ponds and an orchard, supporting a very active wildlife population including barn owls.

A third generation family-owned business, Grundon actively supports local communities in projects such as willow weaving at Swindon Village School and fun events such as mad march hare days for local children.

“We are committed to supporting local communities around our various sites, such as our Wingmoor Farm operation. We love hearing about local projects, many of which are extremely creative, and it’s great when we’re able to support them.” Neil Grundon, Deputy Chairman, Grundon Waste Management
