Merry Christmas from SAE
Giving back to the local community and causes close to the hearts of our team, has always been part of our ethos throughout the year. For many years at Christmas, SAE have made additional donations to a number of charities and charitable organisations that are always desperately in need of funds.
This year we are doing something a little DIFFERENT.
We are proud to have supported local schools and the community in our area throughout the years by supplying road safety equipment and information as well as much needed equipment in the local community centre. This Christmas we will be giving back to the environment as well as future generations, as we will be investing in buying, supplying and planting a range of trees at the new Footsteps Pre-school at Maple Cross JMI School opening in January.
As soon as weather permits and ground conditions are right we will be donning our wellies, slinging spades over our shoulders and singing “High HO High HO, it’s off to school we go”, as we make the short trip down the road to ensure that the children will have a beautiful outside space to enjoy. The trees will mature into a wonderful area that children will enjoy for many years as well as benefiting from all of the enriching activities that their Forest School sessions will bring.
Having consulted closely with the Head Teacher it has been agreed that we will be planting a range of fruit as well as ornamental trees. The school are already working on how the fruit can be used to create interesting foods and tasting sessions for the children to enjoy! We also wanted to give a special mention to Darran, the Plant Area Manager at Burston Garden Centre in St Albans who has been exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable in assisting with tree selection and planning.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a “Healthy and Happy 2019”. We hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends over the festive period and a very Happy Christmas.
