Flagship kicks off first Community Campaign in Great Yarmouth

Flagship kicks off first Community Campaign in Great Yarmouth

Staff from Flagship Group will be donning their high-vis jackets from tomorrow (Tuesday 24 April) for seven weeks for their first ever Community Campaign.

The project will see Flagship employees, Flagship customers, and members of the public come together to regenerate two cemetery sites on Kitchener Road in Great Yarmouth.

Working in partnership with The Conservation Volunteers, Norfolk Community Foundation and The Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, volunteers will take part in activities every Tuesday afternoon to boost the biodiversity of the green space and improve their own well being. The activities volunteers will be involved in include: the removal of ivy and bracken, restoring graves and conservation work such as identifying wildflower species.

CSR Manager at Flagship Group, Callum James, said: “Volunteering is a great way to improve your well being as it’s creating new experiences and skills. It will also create a sense of value and pride for those taking part as they’re making a positive difference by enhancing the local area. We therefore hope lots of people will come along to make the project a success.”

Mark Webster from The Conservation Volunteers said: “The Old and New Cemeteries are a fascinating place to work – right in the centre of Great Yarmouth we have some wonderful wildlife and extraordinary history.  I’m sure that people who join us for this project will really enjoy conserving their local heritage.”

The project is open to anyone aged 18 years and over. For anyone interested in taking part please contact Callum James here or call him on 0845 258 6210.
