To protect the health of our staff and their families, and slow the spread of the virus, Footprint staff will all be working from home from the 20th March. This will not affect our work as we will still be able to access all our files, and our phone number and emails will not change. Someone will attend the office twice a week to pick up post and feed the birds, so our postal address is unchanged. We will also be limiting travel and face to face activity in the period as advised by the government.
Rachel Hoskin 1975-2020
Footprint Ecology are saddened by the completely unexpected death of our colleague and dear friend, Rachel Hoskin. Rachel was taken ill late on the 15th February and died of a heart attack in the early hours of the next morning. Rachel first worked with Footprint Ecology in 2007, undertaking joint HRA work with us while she was an employee at David Tyldesley & Associates. She joined Footprint Ecology as a full-time staff member in 2016 and became a director in 2018. She will be sorely missed. If you would like details of the funeral or where to send cards, please contact us on email@example.com
