Here at Mottram Hall we are doing our bit for wildlife
in the area with the launch of our 2016 Green Campaign. As a
nature rich property, we have so much opportunity to encourage
wildlife to flourish and want to lead the way in being 'green' in
our industry in the Cheshire area. We feel a responsibility to
nuture and grow the wildlife and eco system. See below stories of
how we are giving back to mother nature this year.
Mottram Hall gives birds a real flying start!
Mottram Hall has pledged to put up 120 bird boxes - one per
guest bedroom - around the resort grounds by the end of June, as
part of monthy projects planned this year.
The bird boxes willl be stationed so guests can see them as they
come down the drive and continue around the golf course, into the
rose garden and into the woods.
Michael Lavizani, General Manager of Mottram Hall said, ''As the
Royal Society for the Protection of Birds say "if there is no home
for nature, there won't be a nature", and with so many building
developments going on in the local area we have committed to
providing a home for our feathered friends. This is just the start
of what we have planned for 2016.'
Sixty bird boxes have already been installed in the hotels
grounds in the hope that these will lead to an increase in the bird
population in and around the hotels grounds, providing a safe and
snug place for birds to roost and nest. The boxes are specially
designed to have the correct dimensions and ventilation that birds
need, and only non-toxic preservatives.
Mottram Hall already has robins on site but wants to see
encourage more, as well as to attract sparrows, fly catchers and
birds from the tit and finch families.
Reduce Carbon Emissions
Over the past few years, QHotels has been keen to reduce
its impact on the environment and have reduced our Carbon Emissions
significantly to help achieve sensible energy management practises
such as targeting and monitoring use, improved engineering
maintenance and the application of proven energy reduction such as
Biomass Heating Boilers, Voltage Optimisation Equipment, LED
lighting and improved insulation.
Currently, we are engaged in a campaign to minimise our
waste to landfill, we are now proud to be recycling our cooking
oil, this gets converted to Biodiesel which fuels the vehicles
making deliveries to the Hotel. As a group, we have already
achieved 61% recycling arte and are seeking to improve on that in
How can you help?
You can do your bit too when staying at Mottram Hall by
ensuring lights, heaters, fans and plugs and switched off when not
required. Please be water-wise; a single tap left
running for 1 minute wastes 15 litres of water so kindly may we
remind you to turn off the tap when cleaning your teeth. Also, if
you would like your towel laundered, please place them in the bath
or shower. If your towel is hanging on the towel rail, it shall be
left for you to reuse. You may also use our Battery
Recycling Box at Reception if you have any that need disposing
