Workers on a business park in Prescot are being encouraged to go green to mark Walk to Work Week and Green Office Week (May 13-17).

More than 1,000 people working at Kings Business Park in Prescot are being invited to find out more about walking or cycling to work, as well as how to save energy and reduce waste at a series of workshops.

The events will mark Green Office Week and Walk to Work Week, which both take place from 13-17 May. The activities are being organised jointly by First Ark Group, Knowsley Council’s Business Travel Advice team, Mersey Care NHS Trust and Merseytravel.

With a focus on green transport, the environment and health, there are short workshops taking place with a different theme for each day. Activities for workers on Kings Business Park will include competitions, health walks, ‘taster’ bus passes, health checks, recycling tips, bike repairs, plug-in vehicles and more.

If you would like to see a similar event take place at your Knowsley building or workplace, contact your local Business Travel Advisor.
