A successful volunteering partnership between Tarmac and the Peak District National Park Authority is looking to the future by agreeing a five-year extension.
First formed in 2016, the initiative has seen employees from Tarmac’s Tunstead site rack up thousands of volunteering hours through ‘days of action’ within the Peak District National Park.
Work has included footpath repairs, replacing a bridge on the Pennine Way, drystone walling and the management of ancient hay meadows. Supported by the Peak Park Conservation Volunteers Group, the Tarmac volunteers have also replaced benches and helped to improve a wildlife garden for a local school.
Based on the success, both Tarmac and the Peak District National Park Authority have now committed to continuing working together until at least 2026. This will see more Tarmac employees spending valuable volunteering hours supporting the restoration and development of the renowned park.
Tarmac’s support also includes the ongoing funding of an engagement conservation volunteer assistant role, which involves coordinating volunteering activities throughout the park.
