Communications for a sustainable future

Community woodlands, visitor attractions, climate change adaptation and, of course, trees.

Forestry Commission

We are the retained PR agency for the Forestry Commission for three districts, which covers much of central and northern England including: Sherwood Pines, Penrith, Bellingham, Pickering and York. We promoted an event at Sherwood Pines, which saw a Viking reenactment with a living camp recreating the sights, sounds and smells of the area’s Danish Viking past.

We are now working on the commemoration of the centenary of the First World War with Sherwood Pines. The FC site was used as a training camp during the Great War and set builders, who have worked with Steven Spielberg on the production of War Horse are recreating a training trench. 

We have just secured coverage on BBC East Midlands Today, BBC Radio Nottingham, Nottingham Post, BBC online, ITV Central, Retford Times, Mansfield Chad and Mansfield 103 among others.

We are also working in the north on a variety of projects including Woodlands for Water, an initiative to encourage landowners to work with the FC to plant trees to mitigate flooding and water pollution.
