At Rookery Manor, we are committed to conducting ourselves in the best way possible. We recognise that the actions of each and every one of us has a social and environmental impact. We are always looking to make positive changes and improvements in the way we do things.
We understand that every guest has different needs so we want to make sure our venue and facilities are accessible for everyone. We have designated car parking, accessible entrance, WC, accessible bedrooms and we welcome assistance dogs.
HEALTH & SAFETY
We have First Aid trained staff and a designated Fire Marshal on site. We also have door safety trained staff who are in place at private functions and events.
We select which charities we are going to support at the beginning of each year. We also encourage our staff to take part in sponsored events, to raise money and support worthy causes whilst uniting our staff and having fun together.
For 2017 we have been supporting Samaritan’s Swindon. Swindon and District Samaritans have been offering emotional support to anyone in crisis for 50 years.
We monitor our utility consumption levels on a daily basis and aim to reduce it at every opportunity. We have an appointed Green Team who work closely with each department to initiate positive changes and improvements across our site.
ZERO TO LANDFILL
We do not send any waste to landfill. Card, paper, plastic, glass and tin is taken away to be recycled. Our food waste is taken away and put to good use through anaerobic digestion, which harnesses the energy and turns the organic waste into compost.
Our kitchen uses locally sourced ingredients, which supports local producers as well as reducing transport and packaging to minimise our carbon footprint.
We use AquAid water coolers on site for our guests and staff. By doing so, we are funding the Africa Trust to help those less fortunate than ourselves. The funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’, of which one is being installed on Rookery Manor’s behalf to provide a source of clean and fresh drinking water for a community in Africa.
