Guernsey Water 2016 Annual Report INVESTING IN THE COMMUNITY annualreport2016 23 A Level Students’ Educational Visits A level Environmental Studies students from The Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre visited our Belle Greve Wastewater Centre to understand how sewage is disposed of. “Being able to see, at first hand, the processes involved in treating the island’s wastewater gives our students a much better understanding of any issues involved," said Sally Le Poidevin, The Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre Environmental Science teacher. Wild Flower Meadow In partnership with St Andrew’s Floral Group we helped prepare and plant a wild flower meadow at our Brickfield House site to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. This project was part of an ongoing biodiversity programme in the parish and had a strong synergy with our water catchment management programme. Our employees were also involved in the Rotary Purple Polio Campaign the aim of which is to raise awareness of this water borne disease in polio- endemic countries. We helped plant some of the 10,000 crocus corms in the parish. A copy of Guernsey Water’s Community Investment Policy can be found on
