Bridport TLC, not a load of rubbish‘.

One of the first things that The Bull Marketing Manager Billy asked me to do for the Bull Blog was to talk to Leon. Thing is, it’s easy for a boutique hotel to talk about great food. But what about ‘behind the scenes’? Boring stuff like recycling… Come and meet Leon and his team of Bridport volunteers. They are anything but boring.

Tucked away on the St Michael’s trading estate, between the artists and the antique dealers is Bridport TLC. Oh yes, Tender Loving Care. Very apt for a Community Project that does so much more than collect recycling from the Bull Hotel and many Bridport businesses. The reality of recycling is that we all want to do it but for a business it can be difficult to get all the staff to understand the importance of sorting things. That’s where Leon came in and explained to us all in his enthusiastic manner what Bridport TLC do. It’s so much easier to be responsible when it’s made easy for us.
