A group of fifty workers from a global food company helped to renew the Iver Environment Centre’s recreation area last week.

As part of its pledge to the environment, General Mills – the American company behind the likes of Häagen-Dazs and Cheerios, got the Centre’s play area ready for the summer term so it can be used by local school children, and gave the initiative a sponsorship grant.

The Centre has a range of nature-based educational activities for children - including food growing, habitat comparisons, and tree studies.
