Outdoor centre is carbon neutral
Runway’s End Outdoor Centre in Aldershot has become ‘carbon neutral’ as part of plans to become an ‘eco-centre’ offering environmentally themed education programmes and activities for young people across the county.
The County Council’s Executive Member for Recreation, Heritage and Rural Affairs, Cllr Edward Heron, said: “It is great news that Runway’s End Outdoor Centre has gained carbon neutral status. This means all the carbon emissions from the centre’s operations have been calculated and offset via Carbon Neutral Britain.
“Additional work has taken place to reduce carbon emissions on site which includes harvesting rainwater for reuse and planting more trees.
“Our ambition is for Runway’s End to become a leading eco-centre in Hampshire, offering hands-on educational programmes that teach our young people the importance of protecting the environment.”
The centre offers a range of outdoor activities for young people which includes hosting school groups for residential stays, as well as family accommodation, group training days, facility hire and hall hire.
