After what seems like the longest wettest winter in the history of mankind...
.....summer is finally here! Which means the busy survey season is well and truly underway; in fact we’re fast booking up, so don’t miss out – it’s best to get in touch now to avoid unnecessary delays.
We’ve had an eventful few months since our last newsletter, with the completion of some fantastic projects, a new CEO joining us, audits to prepare for, a Building with Nature seminar to organise and getting our heads around the new GDPR legislation.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for continuing to support CEC by subscribing to our newsletter. Whilst we fully embrace the new GDPR legislation we also don’t want to lose touch with our clients – past and present - so thank you for expressing a wish to still hear from us. It really is appreciated.
From all the team at Cornwall Environmental Consultants
