Directors complete first fundraising challenge

Two of the Directors of Wiser Group have completed the first of their fundraising challenges this summer to raise money for the Firefighters Charity and Raptor Foundation.

Russell and Dominic Hirst completed the Three Peaks Fell Race along with 700 other runners on 29th April, finishing in 4 hours 40 and 4 hours 27 respectively – no mean feat for 23 miles of fell running with over 1,600 metres of ascent and descent of three of the highest summits in Yorkshire!

The brothers will be joined by fellow director Charles Thomas and friend Alistair Whitehead to take on their second challenge, cycling across the Pyrenees from 12th to 16th June 2017. The four will cover over 400km including 8,000m of climbing in four days including one of the most famous climbs of the Tour de France, Col du Tourmalet.

Having experienced the amazing support of firefighters last year, and seen what they put themselves through, when Wiser Recycling’s Cambridgeshire facility burnt down, the directors are keen to raise funds for the Fire Fighters Charity. The national charity supports over 5,000 former and current fire and rescue personnel each year with services that include rehabilitation, nursing and family support.

Funds will also be raised for the Raptor Foundation. The Cambridgeshire charity, of which Russell is a Trustee, provides 24 hour care and rehabilitation for injured raptors, helping to support these increasingly rare species.

Please support us in our challenges and help us raise funds for these valuable causes – donate today.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
