The Wellbeing Farm wedding and events venue in Edgworth, Lancashire is celebrating its tenth anniversary year this week.
To celebrate this achievement, the venue has published its first Impact Report which highlight’s the venue’s work in the areas of governance; workers; customers; environment and community. Within the report, the venue has also published its road map to net zero.
Not many small hospitality businesses like The Wellbeing Farm have undertaken such a range of sustainability work and Celia Gaze, CEO and founder hopes that by publishing their Impact Report, that it will provide some ideas and examples for other hospitality businesses to follow.
Since becoming one of the first venues in the UK to be a Certified B Corp, the farm has experienced growth and a marked increase in enquiries and bookings for weddings and corporate events. The venue is proud to be sharing the work they have done around sustainability, community involvement and staff wellbeing.
Celia has also been supported by Boost: Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub to deliver a Lancashire business owner to business owner peer networking programme. The programme will be for Lancashire business leaders who want to transform their business by becoming purpose led. The cohort will focus on sharing experiences of purpose-led business across staff wellbeing, community involvement and sustainability and leaders will create an ‘actionable’ sustainability strategy.
Purpose-oriented companies experience higher productivity, growth rates and a more satisfied workforce. The programme will bring leaders in Lancashire together to discuss, critique and create a sustainability strategy. Leaders will also learn about the B Corp Certification scheme and be supported to start working towards their Business Impact Assessment.
