Long-term supporter of the National Forest, Reabrook Limited will be supporting the first Timber Festival as a principle partner.
A large-scale local employer and manufacturer, committed to best ethical and environmental practice, Reabrook have supported the planting of 42,000 trees in the National Forest over the last 7 years, making a major positive contribution to the recent transformation of the local landscape and to the development of the destination for local people and visitors alike.
The scale of planting that Reabrook has supported and time contributed in planting trees, wildflowers and other activities has enabled Feanedock, the 70 acre festival site on the Leicestershire and Derbyshire border between Ashby and Burton, to become a beautiful area in recent years which takes in rolling parkland, established woodlands and swathes of brand new trees. It spells out the transformation of a previously industrial landscape and tells the story of the National Forest in all its glory.
Tony Brealey and Malcolm Watkins Joint Managing Directors, of Reabrook Limited, said: “Reabrook is a family-run company based in the heart of the National Forest with a reputation for setting the standard, not only for innovation in product development but also for the sustainable manufacture of aerosol, liquid and tube products. The company has been recognized over recent years by BAMA (the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association) awards for both Sustainability Award and Corporate Sustainability.
“In celebrating our 50th year in 2018, , Reabrook continues to support the National Forest with its sponsorship of Timber, the International Forest Festival, helping deliver a truly inspirational forest festival which can be enjoyed by all. Festivalgoers camping overnight will have the chance to enjoy the beautiful Boothorpe site, adjacent to Feanedock and close to Reabrook’s heart. The company has helped the National Forest Company develop this attractive site over the last seven years and directors, staff and customers have all taken a very active part in planting and developing the site, transforming the landscape and creating an inspirational greenprint for the future.”
David Bourque, Director of Development, National Forest Company, said: “Reabrook’s passion for the environment and the National Forest is as palpable today as it was seven years ago when our partnership was first created. It’s amazing to think that they helped to create the Timber Festival site, just across the road from their factory, with their staff helping to plant thousands of trees. The National Forest aims to grow with its businesses, like Reabrook, that share our ‘green growth’ vision.”
