EM - February/March 2015 - (Page 2)

2 Feb/March 2015 * www.esb.ie/em NEWS Draw results BERNIE HEALY Editor's desk Hello and Welcome to the February/ March issue of EM. In this issue we are highlighting our sponsorship of ESB Tree Week which runs from March 1st - 7th. This is a tremendous initiative in which all of our colleagues throughout ESB can become involved. Suggestions on how we can take part range from, not just planting trees, but visiting local woodlands, learning more about the trees around us, inviting our families to go on a woodland walk or joining in some of the activities around the week which might be taking place in our local areas. For those of you who may be keen gardeners, involved in Tidy Town initiatives in your local areas, or have an in-depth knowledge of native trees - you might like to take the lead in your own community by either getting involved in some initiative or even giving a talk to a local school or group. Certainly within G&WM and ESB Networks a large number of staff would be familiar with planting, pruning etc. and the work ESB is involved in so we are sure there is a sizeable number of colleagues out there who will get involved. Watch out for more information in this issue of EM and on ESBNet, Twitter, Yammer etc. in the coming weeks.
