Peak District EQM award

We are delighted to announce that we have had our EQM award renewed until November 2019.

The Citation on the renewal report read as follows;


Buxton Civic Association manage Poole's Cavern and the surrounding woodland, both of which are sites of special scientific interest (SSSIs). It was clear during the assessment that Buxton Civic Association has a strong commitment to environmental and social issues, as well being passionate about the conservation of their cavern and woodlands. Access for all is also central to their ethos, with some excellent work undertaken to allow less able people to enjoy both. High energy use is a significant environmental impact for the cavern and new LED lighting has been installed to address this.

Thanks to Faith Johnson for the images.
