1999 Review

Bristol-Myers Squibb held an Environment Week where more than 250 staff plant beech nuts as a commitment to Trees of Time and Place.
Cramlington Out To Play Association does it differently.
CONE attends Cramlington Fair spreading the greenword with a twist - balloons that is, in the shape of animals created by local balloon artist. Wildlife friendly plants are snapped up in record time by green fingered locals.
This year sees the start of the Wildlife Beer Fest which has become an annual event at the Three Horse Shoes. Beers on sale included Golden Newt, Black Adder, and Well's Eagle. Whilst supping their brew punters have the opportunity to read up on wildlife from fact sheets and to partake in minibeast searches and pondlife investigations.
During National Wildlife Week, Beaconhill First School, East Hartford Special School, Kramel and St. Paul's First School pay a visit to some of our partners grounds which have been developed for wildlife.
Beconhill First School works closely with Forbo-CP, producing a special millennium calendar.
Parkside Middle School join forces with Bristol-Myers Squibb for studies on the firm's meadows and hedges. Pupils were also given a tour of the factory and the chance to design labels for shampoo and deodorant bottles.

Creating the living willow fence at a play area in Cramlington, 1999
