Actively supporting the Bike2Work scheme

 

In possession of a brand new bike each, Jamie Crampton and Chris Rushton are the first to take advantage of the Bike2Work scheme which SCP have signed up to as part of our Corporate Travel Plan initiative.

Director Jim Budd commented “We have always tried to practice what we preach with regard to sustainable travel and we are hopeful that even more of us will want to follow in Jamie’s and Chris’s wheel tracks given the undoubted benefits that cycling provides in terms of health and well-being.  Our recent staff travel survey reveals that the Manchester and Leeds office locations are already very accessible.
