Welcoming bats to the British Gypsum family

At British Gypsum, we believe that it is our responsibility to encourage wildlife preservation and biodiversity in the areas surrounding our sites. That’s why we have donated and installed a bat hotel at Bunny Old Wood, located near to our head office in East Leake.

The bat hotel is a collaboration between British Gypsum and the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and will encourage more bats to make the woods their home. Bats are a protected species, and the hotel is just one of many habitats that we have invested in to support local wildlife – from birds to butterflies to bees.

Bunny Old Wood has a rich history and was owned by British Gypsum until 1985, when we donated the land to the Wildlife Trust. We value our relationship with the trust, and endeavour to support them as much as we can in their work to preserve the environment.

Lorraine Price, Head of Brand and Communications at British Gypsum, said, “We love working with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, and we are excited to welcome bats into the British Gypsum family. We look forward to continuing our work with them to discover new ways to preserve habitats and encourage wildlife on our land.”
