GREEN-FIN­GERED ho­tel staff have been rolling up their sleeves and get­ting stuck in to help trans­form Ruis­lip Gar­dens.

A team of 18 vol­un­teers from the Lon­don Heathrow Mar­riott Ho­tel, Grosvenor Square Mar­riott Ho­tel, Twick­en­ham Mar­riott Ho­tel and St Er­min’s Ho­tel West­min­ster gave up their time to help Hilling­don Coun­cil’s Green Spa­ces in de­liv­er­ing the im­por­tant con­ser­va­tion project. They spent a pro­duc­tive day clear­ing Hi­malayan Bal­sam from Yead­ing Brook in Ruis­lip, man­ag­ing to clear more than 800 square me­tres of the plant.

Dra­gana Kneze­vic, coun­try­side and con­ser­va­tion of­fi­cer, said: “We cleared more space than we could have imag­ined. It’s so great to see such en­thu­si­asm for main­tain­ing the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.”

Lon­don Heathrow Mar­riott Ho­tel’s gen­eral man­ager, Ron Vos, added: “We love be­ing part of the com­mu­nity here and we’re al­ways keen to give some­thing back where we can, so we’ve loved do­ing our bit for this im­por­tant project.”
