Macclesfield Forest storm damage clear-up continues

Published on

The clear-up at Macclesfield Forest continues after ‘hundreds’ of trees were uprooted, many falling across footpaths after a severe storm in March. Dramatic footage shows the extent of the damage which remains, but United Utilities has said excellent progress is being made. “Since the storm we have been working very hard to clear footpaths and make the area safe.” “We’ve managed to open many of the footpaths with only four routes still remaining closed.

Talking innovation with LMarks

Published on

Meet Emma from LMarks, the corporate innovation specialists who we've teamed up with to run our co-creation Innovation Lab programme. We advertised the Lab to some 1,500 fledgling, small and large businesses, starting in Spring 2017. After receiving applications from 80 outlets we narrowed that down to a shortlist of 22 and in December they came from far and wide to a pitch day where the seven succesful applicants were selected. The seven partners for the Lab will be co-located and mentored by senior United Utilities business leaders and get access to test, improve and demonstrate their product/service in live customer environments to key experts and decision makers.
