Ashfords keep a colony of bees at our Exeter office with our people taking up bee keeping in a bid to help the national initiative to protect bees and boost their population.

It is hoped the new Ashfords' bee colony will help to pollinate flowers and shrubs in the area around Sowton Industrial Estate.

This initiative is fundamental to Ashfords' CSR programme which is focused on supporting the communities and making the business as environmentally suitable as possible.

Elizabeth Gibson, partner and who leads the firm's CSR programme, said:

"This is a wonderful initiative which our people came up with and which our CSR Focus Group was really keen to support. Our aim is do our part to help the various national campaigns to keep the UK's bees alive and thriving. We very proud to welcome our new tenants and hope in the future to be giving our clients a pot of our own Ashfords' honey".
