Mercer & Hole help out at Highfield Park
A team from Mercer & Hole Chartered Accountants in St Albans volunteered at Highfield Park last Thursday, 24th March.
Led by Daniel Bisby, the firm’s Director of Trusts, the team set to work on clearing brambles and weeds in the park’s orchard. Tax Trainee, Robin Edwards was able to put to use some of the pruning skills he had learnt travelling, under the guidance of one of the Highfield Park team, who showed him how to prune and train espalier apple and pear trees. Daniel and Robin were joined by Karen Hale and Debbie Bigg from the firm’s HR and Marketing teams.
The relationship between Mercer & Hole and Highfield Park began last year, when the firm supported the park’s Easter Bunny Hunt as well as tending to the Mediterranean Garden and maze as part of their campaign to celebrate their 110th year of business.
The 82 acre park is managed by a charity, Highfield Park Trust, who, along with volunteers aim to maintain the park for use by the local community.
Daniel Bisby said: “We enjoyed our morning at Highfield Park and accomplished a significant amount of clearing around the bases of the fruit trees. It is gratifying to see the positive effects o f our work on this great, local space.”
Highfield Park Trust Manager and Company Secretary, Richard Bull said: “We are grateful to Mercer & Hole for their continued support and hard work in the park’s orchard. With such a large area and variety of habitats to maintain here, volunteers can make a real difference to the appearance of the park and to the enjoyment of those who use it. We hope to see the Mercer & Hole team here again soon.”
