17 June sees the launch of the new National Park partnership with energy bar company, Clif Bar. As a part of their sponsorship, Clif Bar has funded several conservation projects across UK National Parks including the Broads.
The first of their projects locally has been the installation of a bug hotel bike shelter at Whitlingham Country Park. The shelter features a living roof and areas of wood and leaf litter to provide the perfect habitat for invertebrates whilst providing the perfect space for eager cyclists to safely park their bikes. Alongside the shelter are two planters filled with plants for pollinators which can also be used to secure a bike.
In addition Clif Bar will also be represented in the Broads Village at the Royal Norfolk Show and will be giving away samples of their products. They are also supporting Broads Authority Navigation Committee Chair Nicky Talbot when she competes in the Run Norwich 10K in aid of local charity The Nancy Oldfield Trust.
Chief Executive of the Broads Authority, John Packman, said of the partnership,
“I am delighted with the early benefits of the new partnership between National Parks and Clif Bar. It is important that any partnerships we form reflect the values and ambitions to care for our National Parks and we have already seen this commitment demonstrated by Clif Bar. Their presence at the Royal Norfolk Show next week will be a good opportunity for visitors to enjoy free samples of their products, take part in some fun activities and chat to their staff.”
