Wildlife at Burnaston
TMUK is a corporate member of the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust (DWT) and work together on a number of projects. Our aim at all times is to be ‘in harmony with our natural surroundings’.
TMUK was the first business to sign up to DWT’s ‘Transforming the Trent Valley’ initiative. The initiative aims to encourage businesses and landowners to commit to preserving or restoring wildlife habitats on their land. TMUK was recognised for the hard work involved in setting up their own wildlife site. The DWT have led the project in regenerating and maintaining the wetland area around the balancing lakes at Burnaston.
